Dragon Racer by M.R. Mathias
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Dragon Races are the jewel in the crown drawing the high and mighty to the huge coliseum where blood sports are the prelude to watching the mighty dragons in their life and death races. For the majority of the population however they are just something to aspire too but when the young Sharrah Che is taken to her first race by her Aunt and guardian her world will forever be changed.
Dragon Racer by M.R. Mathias constructs a very visceral landscape to tell it's story, you really do get immersed into the world he has created and the mechanism that allows the world to work (gambling, politics and magic) well together creating a framework to tell the story of Sharrah.
