It’s rather an interesting concept for a sole dragon to be the cause of all the monsters within a world, and this is precisely what happens in Don’t Call the Wolf by Aleksandra Ross. I’m genuinely curious about where this novel is going to go, the story of a forest queen enlisting the help of the last dragonslayer by promising to help him find his brother. But, apparently, promises are broken at some point…the only question is, which ones?
A forest, besieged. A queen, unyielding. Fans of Leigh Bardugo and Holly Black will devour this deliciously dark Eastern European–inspired YA fantasy debut. When the Golden Dragon descended on the forest of Kamiena, a horde of monsters followed in its wake. Ren, the forest’s young queen, is slowly losing her battle against them. Until she rescues Lukasz—the last survivor of a heroic regiment of dragon slayers—and they strike a deal. She will help him find his brother, who vanished into her forest… if Lukasz promises to slay the Dragon. But promises are all too easily broken.
