Our teaser:

Cassian warned me there would be a reckoning for this night’s work, and I wonder whether it’s already begun. I’ve lost Will. Tamra is sick or in shock or maybe something worse. Mom can hardly look at me. My every breath is misery, the events of the night burning inside my eyelids. Me, shedding my human skin and manifesting in front of Will’s family. My desperate flight through crackling dry air to reach him. But if I hadn’t manifested—hadn’t flown to Will’s side—he’d be dead and I couldn’t bear that thought.. I’ll never see Will again, no matter his promise to find me, but at least he’s alive.

Cassian says nothing beside me. He did all the talking he needed to do to get Mom in the car with us, to make her understand returning with him to the home we fled is the only viable option. His fingers hold tight to the steering wheel, his knuckles white. I doubt he’ll relax his grip until we’re free and clear of Chaparral. Probably not until we’re safely back in the pride. Safe. I strangle on a laugh—or it could be a sob. Will I ever feel safe again?

Our favorite Dragons, Dragon Books, and Dragon Movies. 

Austin says~

By Christopher Paolini: Eragon (Inheritance, Book 1)Eragon is probably my favorite that is completely centered around dragons. But one of my favorite series ever is Fablehaven, which has some dragons as secondary characters a stuff. Uh, my favorite dragon character is probably Raxtus, a dragon from Fablehaven.

From Kit~

I like the Hungarian Horntail in Harry Potter! 

Andye's thoughts~

I'm actually surprised by how many dragon movies/books I have watched/read.  Of course, I love the dragons in Harry Potter, too.  I can't wait to see the dragon escape from Gringotts on Thursday night!!

Eragon (Movie Tie-in Edition) (The Inheritance Cycle) I also really enjoyed Eragon, the movie.  My favorite dragon movie would have to be DRAGONHEART.  Have you seen it?

Yeah, I know it's old, and maybe a little cheesy, but I loved it!  Plus Sean Connery is the voice of Draco, which I love!  

Starlighter (Dragons of Starlight)A great dragon book that I read is called STARLIGHTER by Bryan Davis.  If you love dragons, you should definitely check that one out.

But my absolute favorite Dragon/Draki book, has to be FIRELIGHT by Sophie Jordan.  I absolutely LOVE this book!  I just finished VANISHED and it was fantastic!  I loved it so much, even though it may have made me change my allegiance (I'm swaying to team Caspian....sorry Will!)  If you haven't read these books, TRUST ME, they are full of romance and awesome! 

FirelightVanish: A Firelight Novel

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to ride a dragon?  Check this out....if you don't get motion sickness!

  1. FIRELIGHT is really the only "dragon" book I've read, and I absolutely loved it! So I will have to say Jacinda is my fav as well. I cannot wait for VANISH. Sooo excited!

  2. I like the Hungarian Horntail. Feisty little fellow. But Jacinda can be as feisty if she wanted to, I bet. :)


  3. I love this book series. I'm a major fantasy buff and Firelight was a very well written book. Vanish is going to rule!

  4. Pete from Pete's Dragon.

  5. My favorite dragon is Jacinda because Firelight is the only dragon book I have read

  6. The dragons in Harry Potter are pretty much the coolest things ever, especially the one which breaks out of Gringotts. But Jacinda can hold her own since she's so fiery. I'm such a Sohpie Jordan fan, she's amazing. I absolutely loved Firelight and cannot wait for Vanish!

    Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway!

  7. Mmmh, I'm not sure that I have a favorite dragon! I do love the dragons in Harry Potter, but I've read and loved Firelight, so I love Jacinda too. I can't wait to read Vanish!

    ilikethesebooksblog at gmail dot com

  8. I'll go with Jacinda because firelight is one of my favorite books! and Jacinda is pretty amazing :)

  9. The only dragon book I've ever read is Firelight. So I'd have to say that Jacinda is my favorite dragon. How can she not be my favorite? She's awesome in every way!
    Can't wait for Vanish's release! And I love that teaser! I want more! lol


  10. Firelight is the only dragon book I've actually finished. I loved the characters and Sophie Jordan is an amazing author. I soo hope I win the signed arc. I don't know if my book from the HarperCollins booth is coming from ALA. So I need to read this book!

  11. Although I do rather enjoy these books, my favorite dragon would be Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon.

  12. I haven't read these books yet but if I had to choose a dragon I would say for now it is Eragon.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. While I love Jacinda, I have to say Saphira from the Inheritance Cycle. *hides* I'm biased! LOL, I read Eragon in the 4th grade and, IDK, I instantly loved her and the connection to Eragon. Saphira can be a little immature but yet she's loyal and wise. :)

  14. Ohh I loved Firelight so I would have to say Jacinda is my favorite dragon!! I can't wait to read Vanish!!!

  15. Firelight is fantastic! I am so excited I can`t wait get Vanish when it comes out! Sophie is so amazing it`s easy to see why her books are just as amazing! Thanks for the giveaway. I have to say Jacinda, I love her strength. Although she is still a teenager and has to deal with mean girls in regular school. She has an amazing talent and I can`t wait to see where it takes her!

  16. I loved the dragon in "How to Train Your Dragon". That was a cute movie=)

  17. I sadly haven't read any dragon books or ones that contain dragons. At least that I can recall. The only one I can think of is Puff, the Magic Dragon. So, I guess Puff! :)

  18. Havne't read this series, but I'm pretty sure I'll love Jacinda :) thanks for the giveaway, please count em in!


  19. I don't have a favorite dragon. I guess if I had to pick one, I would say the Hungarian Horntail from HP.

    findjessyhere at gmail dot com

  20. Dragons are awesome and all your fav dragons are great. I don't think I can pick...

    Dragonheart was great.
    *spoiler for Game of Thrones* And I loved the dragons at the end of Game of Thrones.

    Jacinda rocks though and is probably my favorite book dragon. :)

  21. The only book I've read with a dragon is firelight, but I love the last air bender on nik-toons and there is an episode with 2 dragons it's a great show :)

  22. I like the Hungarian Horntail from Harry Potter. I also loved the Dueling Dragon ride at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

  23. Jacinda!! And I really can't wait for Vanish :)

  33. I gotta admit I love Sapphira! Oh and Jacinda of course ;D


  34. Okay, Firelight is at the very top of my list, with the Jacinda the actual creature, but a close second is Norbert from Harry Potter. He was such a cute little baby dragon, and caused SUCH a lot of trouble in the books!

  35. I am SO excited about VANISH!!! And, of course, Jacinda is my favorite dragon (after Puff the Magic Dragon, of course).

    Amy // amyismyfriend at aol dot com

  36. I can't wait for Vanish to come out! My favorite dragon? I guess it's Jacinda since I can't think of any other dragon!

    jadedlittlegirlx [at] gmail [dot] com

  37. Agh! I love so many dragons! Saphira from Eragon, Ramoth, Mnementh and Ruth from the Pern novels, Kitten from the Tortall books, Kazul from The Enchanted Forest Chronicles...ok, I have to pick Ruth from The Whit Dragon. :)

    Thank you for the chance!


  38. Well for Book I was a total Pern Nerd in my youth, and for movies it would have to be Sean C as the Dragon " I am the Last One!" from DragonHeart.
    Firelight was awesomesauce, I cannot wait for Vanish.

  39. I would love to read and review this novel, I loved the first one-Jacinda was one of the best main characters I have read about :) edysicecreamlover18ATgmailDOTcom Thank you!

  40. I love Draco in Dragonheart. That is my favorite movie. Please enter me in contest.

  41. I loved Firelight, and after reading Jacinda is my Favorite 'dragon' by far. Vanish is going to be amazing!

  42. I loved Firelight! I was skeptical at first about a story about a dragon girl but Sophie's beautiful writing made me fall in love with the Draki world. I can't wait to find out what happens in Vanish!

    I agree with Austin about Raxtus from the Fablehaven series. So glad the other dragon got eaten before he could really hurt the kids.

  51. This was my first dragon book and I absolutely loved it! Jacinda is my favorite fire breather :)

    laurengetsliteral at gmail dot com

  52. Jacinda is my favorite.

  53. WOnderful Giveaway! I can't wait to get my teeth into Vanish. I absolutely love the covers !!


  54. I would have to say that my favorite dragon was the luck dragon from The Never Ending Story I, II, III. It may be an older movie, but it was cool when I was 10. My son is in love with dragons though! Thanks!

  55. Jacinda is by far the best dragon. She is a very strong character and is determined to be herself and not who everyone wants her to be. She has a very fiery personality (no pun intended) that makes her easily the favorite.

  56. I REALLY LOVE Firelight and I can't wait to read Vanish because I'm sure it's going to be just as awesome. My favorite dragon would of course be Jacinda because she is such an awesome person. She has such great character and really shows a lot of strength. However if I could be a dragon I would want to be like Azure the water draki...mostly because I love swimming :)


  57. I have not read Firelight yet, but so far my favorite is Eragon. Would love some swag!

    ashleysbookshelf at gmail dot com

  58. I really enjoyed Firelight and cannot wait to read Vanish. Aside for Firelight the only other dragon book that I have read was Dragon Bound and Dragos was pretty sexy in that book.

  59. This would be my first dragon So Jacinda!
