Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: Wonderfully descriptive with magic and unique characters this one was a hit with the bookclub. Cant wait for book two! 


"A classic heroine-driven adventure, Saving the Dragon by Sara R. Cleveland is a high-fantasy romance that will thrill YA readers and veteran fantasy fans alike. Leveraging love and loyalty like magical weapons, this book is a creative, well-penned coming-of-age story with clever spell-casting laws and strong-willed characters that are both recognizable and unique. The plot moves quickly, with regular jumps of weeks or more in the storytelling, which can make this foundational tale feel rushed at times, but the world-building is still impressively detailed. Pulling themes from traditional sagas, fairy tales, and fables, but weaving them into an expansive new world for a complex pair of protagonists to explore, Cleveland hits the mark with this new saga." Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★½
