JULY 12.

12) Novel that best conjured a place for you


The Smoke Thief (The Drakon: book 1) by Shana Abé
This is a truly magical book that won me over with lush descriptions and magical beings. I found the book itself a bit lacking but the story of creatures of extraordinary beauty who live in secret among northern England’s green and misted hills is charming and colorful. I kept seeing hidden little kingdom like form a Disney fairytale come true.


The story is set in kinda Victorian England only there is magic and there are dragons, and romance and adventure!

The book itself is far from PG 13 and second book in the series was much better storywise.

I looked all over to find a picture that can come close to what I imagined and found some quite inspiring ones:
