Moth and Spark by Anne LeonardA prince with a quest. A commoner with mysterious powers. And dragons that demand to be freed—at any cost.
Prince Corin has been chosen to free the dragons from their bondage to the Empire, but dragons aren’t big on directions. They have given him some of their power, but none of their knowledge. No one, not the dragons nor their riders, is even sure what keeps the dragons in the Empire’s control.
Tam, sensible daughter of a well-respected doctor, had no idea before she arrived in the capital that she is a Seer, gifted with visions. When the two run into each other (quite literally) in the library, sparks fly and Corin impulsively asks Tam to dinner. But it’s not all happily ever after. Never mind that the prince isn’t allowed to marry a commoner: war is coming to Caithen.
Torn between Corin’s quest to free the dragons and his duty to his country, the lovers must both figure out how to master their powers in order to save Caithen. With a little help from a village of secret wizards and a rogue dragonrider, they just might pull it off.

I have some serious cover lust happening with this one. I would have read this book for the cover alone, but then when I read that it was about dragons, love, and a prince with a quest…. Prince Corin has been picked by the dragons to free them from their bondage to the empire…. The dragons charge him with this seemingly impossible deed and gift him powers but he has no idea what to do about this quest. So he returns to the palace to continue on with his daily life. This raises all sorts of concerns for Corin, one of which is eminent war. Once he is back home he informs his father, the king, and the king confirms that war is likely.

Moth and Spark was one of my top anticipated novels of My gut instinct told me it was going to be a good one, and while my gut might not be the best guide for a lot of things, it has hardly ever steered me wrong when it comes to books. And I was pleased to see to that it was right once again.
