complimentary ARC edition from G.P Putnam s Sons Books for Young Readers This is my honest and voluntary review.Series The Aurelian Cycle Book 1Publisher G.P Putnam s Sons Books for Young Readers October 15, 2019 Publication Date October 15, 2019Genre YA DystopianPrint Length 448 pagesAvailable from Barnes NobleFor Reviews, Giveaways, Fabulous Book News, follow 15 March 2019 There s a cover I love the red, and that dragon can slay me CoverLoveAlso, can I just say that the comparison to Seraphina and Red Rising just undid me I mean, when Rachel Hartman praises a book, I m in that woman has always impressed with the philosophy in her books Initial review Inspired by Plato s RepublicWow That should be interesting for sure the story is pitched as Aegon Targaryen and Hermione Granger with dragons, set in the aftermath of a bloody revolution.Wait What What kind of synopsis is that The kind to make me add it, that s what kind it is I mean I don t even know what that bleeding means What that bleeding means What inspired you to write this particular story The French Revolution, Plato s Republic, and before either of these, the Blitzlistening to an audiobook about the Battle for Britain, imagining dogfights as I drove, the beginnings of a story taking shape Somewhere along the way, those fighter planes became dragons, and I never looked back.Well, I mean, that deserves a wow and a definitely adding it Wait, it getts better Later, working in Paris, I wandered streets whose legacy from the French Revolution was written in defaced tombs and unmarked sites of guillotines, and I knew I wanted to write about revolution Not about the beginnings of one the bloody aftermath So many beautiful YA novels have been about kids starting a revolution, but I wanted to explore the other side of it I wanted to write about kids who had to pick up the pieces afterwards And I wanted to inverse a closely related tropeI wanted to imagine an orphaned aristocrat who has every reason to seek revenge, until he realizes that maybe, his family did wrong, too.And that is enough for me to know I absolutely need to read this So many authors ignore the aftermath of the wars they write and I personally need books on that topic Besides, grey morality My fave thing to ever read Thank you Ms Munda Thank youThat s not even considering the explanation to the synopsis And then what pulled it all together was Plato s Republic, which I studied a bit in college I was captivated by its dystopian utopian approach to propaganda and meritocracy What would a society look like that granted political power unequally according to intelligence, rather than unequally according to birthright And even intriguingly what would that look like in a society where rulers ride dragons What if a revolution transformed hereditary dragonriding into a test based selection process That s a yes for me Thank you very much I d like it tomorrow That s where Lee and Annie s stories start An aristocrat in hiding, and a former serf who meet in the orphanage, test side by side into their new regime s dragonriding program, and have to decide if they really can leave the past behind them and if the new regime really is better than what came before.I ve always needed a book questioning a revolution rather than starting one It looks like this book s gonna be everything I ve ever needed I don t think anything needs to be said on the matter anticipated read Inspired by Plato s Republic and told from a dual point of view, the story is pitched as Aegon Targaryen and Hermione Granger with dragons I have no idea what that even means, but I gotta say I m intrigued lol. 8 19 19PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT AVAILABLE ON NETGALLEY TO READ NOW FOR 24 HOURS EMAIL CAME AT 9AM TODAY, DO HURRY AND GET IT
