This was a Bookbub title I picked up for free, but it was worth so much more than the nonexistent price I paid. This is one of only a couple of ebook titles I’ve read that I may try to obtain in actual paper (the others are Audacity and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay).
Dragon of Ash and Stars is a beautifully written coming of age story, with a unique voice (the narrator is a dragon). The world building is rich, the details exquisite, and the story reminiscent of Black Beauty. The main character is complex, realistically flawed, and extraordinarily sympathetic despite (or perhaps as a result of) feeling distinctly not-human.
If you’re into fantasy, I’d strongly recommend this book.
