The Synopsis: 

Gate of Air by Resa Nelson 
(Dragon Gods, #1) 
Publication date: June 19th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Frayka must find and convince the dragon gods of the Far East to appease the gods of her Northland heritage. If she fails, her own Northlander gods will destroy all the mortals who once promised to worship them. The Far East is a mysterious place of legend to Northlanders like Frayka. Only an old map can show her how to get there. Once she arrives, all of Frayka’s sensibilities put her in danger. And every dangerous turn delays her from finding the dragon gods whose help she so desperately needs. Although Frayka looks like a Far Easterner, she is a powerful Northlander warrior who is quick to voice her thoughts. She is trained to fight and won’t hesitate to do so. But everything about Frayka puts her in deadly peril in the Far East, where the laws are strict and the punishment cruel. Especially when the one being punished is a woman.

 

My Review:

First of all look at that cover!
Second this book is about, Mythology and Dragons!
I couldn’t have been more excited to receive this book!  This is my first time reading Resa Nelson’s work, so I had no idea this wasn’t the first book until after I finished reading. So I suppose reading the previous books aren’t necessary. I still quite enjoyed the story!

There was a wonderful mix of actual history, magic, mythology! It focused on things that actually happened in history. The limitations that Frayka faces actual happen in the history in Asia. I found it quit interesting.

I definitely did not see that ending coming and look forward to a sequel! This book definitely gave me Avatar: The Last Airbender vibes. So if your a fan of Avatar I think you’ll like this story. Also if your a fan of fast paced, magical, YA fantasy stories I recommend this to you!

Purchase:
99¢ for a limited time only!
