Waiting on Wednesday: The Dragon Round by Stephen S Power

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week: The Dragon Round by Stephen S Power – check this out – ‘high fantasy epic that blends swashbuckling adventure with a dark tale of vengeance’, plus, DRAGONS – get in my life – NOW!

25368958For fans of Scott Lynch and Naomi Novik comes a high fantasy epic that blends swashbuckling adventure with a dark tale of vengeance–when a ship captain is stranded on a deserted island by his mutinous crew, he finds a rare dragon egg that just might be the key to his salvation and his revenge.

He only wanted justice. Instead he got revenge.

Jeryon has been the captain of the Comber for over a decade. He knows the rules. He follows the rules. He likes the rules. But not everyone on his ship agrees. When a monstrous dragon attacks the Comber, his surviving crew, vengeful and battle-worn, decide to take the ship for themselves and give Jeryon and his self-righteous apothecary “the captain’s chance:” a small boat with no rudder, no sails, and nothing but the shirts on their backs to survive.

Marooned and fighting for their lives against the elements, Jeryon and his companion discover that the island they’ve landed on isn’t quite as deserted as they originally thought. They find a rare baby dragon that, if trained, just might be their ticket off the island. But as Jeryon and the dragon grow closer, he begins to realize that even if he makes it off the island, his life will never be the same again. In order for justice to be served, he’ll have to take it for himself.

    Oh, yes! Scott Lynch and Naomi Novik are certainly two authors who write fantasy brilliantly. And the painting on the cover is really selling it to me right now, love the dragon aimed at the ship.

    I hope that image is the final cover! I guess they can change the font if they want, but I love the art! They cannot change that.
