One thought on “Dragon's Curse

  1. I am so happy there are three books I am already a fan of HL Burke s writing It is crisp, flawless, and witty Plus, her characters are funny, real, and adorable yes, most especially the dragon I really liked that Shannon was a strong character who spoke her mind, an excellent healer, had messy hair, and got on the king s nerves My only issue with her was how she seemed a bit weaker after she d fallen in love but just a little bit Not enough to lessen my enthusiasm for this book I couldn t put i [...]


  2. Young Shannon is sent to the kingdom of Regone to act as a caretaker to the king She is highly skilled in potions and herbs, and she has the skills needed to heal his venomous dragon wounds Unfortunately, a dragon settles in a cave near the castle, which fuels the old desire to hunt dragons once again.I have to say that I love books about dragons that bring something new to the table This isn t your typical go kill the dragon and win the girl s heart kind of book This dragon is not your ordinary [...]


  3. I really enjoyed this book I stayed up late one night to read most of it The plot was fun though I admit, I called the twist thinking how cool would it be if I really enjoyed the characters, especially Shannon She s so straightforward and blunt without being annoying something that got to be hilarious Also sarcastic dragons are never a bad thing The ending wasn t quite what I was expecting, so now I m really curious to read the rest of the series to see how this all plays out This is my first H. [...]


  4. So you get the gist Shannon is a bookish healer with impressive credentials, and almost zero real life experience She can t wait to get out of the Academy and have an adventure, so she persuades her superior and friend Martin to let her go He does, grudgingly, and she comes to the court of King Edmond.Edmond has been badly burned and poisoned by dragons See, his brother got eaten up by a dragon, leading to the death of his dad Edmond tried to kill the dragon in question, but this became a campai [...]


  5. I totally fell in love with this series I had acquired the first book while attending the book release of Beggar Magic also by the same author and she had offered the second book in this series at a reduced price at the same time After I finished this book, I was thankful I had the second installment on hand and immediately had to purchase the last two I loved the idea of a bookish girl traveling with a male dragon since the dynamic was excessively intriguing And the story didn t disappoint In f [...]


  6. I ve had this in my kindle for a while, bought because of the DRAGON, and I really didn t have any idea what the story was about Thought I d just take a peek and ended up reading it almost straight through I loved the dragon s character, and I really liked Shannon too, for how brave and loyal she is The setting is well visualized, but there were a few scenes of talking heads that weren t grounded in the surroundings For that reason I m giving this 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 This story is recommen [...]


  7. This book was soooo cute I really just loved it Not what I expected at all A sweet fairytale romp, written intelligently The story is light but it really tugs at your heart The characters were fresh and interesting I liked that they used their heads Would recommend this book to my friends Can t wait to start reading the next one.


  8. Wonderfully fun story I can t wait to read the rest of the series Highly recommend for middle grade readers and grown up ones.


  9. In general, I liked it For the most part, I liked the characters with exceptions, but those exceptions I m pretty sure we re supposed to hate , I liked the writing though there were parts that could use improvement , and I liked the plot but it could use some polishing.So, you re asking, why three stars if I liked it Well, it started strong and then the second half got a bit weaker That s the biggest reason The other reason is probably that I was reading Book Girl and the Captive Fool at the sam [...]


  10. Shannon is a young lady who wants adventure She has never been far from where she grew up and wishes to see of the world She wants excitement When her friend Martin is asked to send a healer to Regone for King Edmond, she knows this could be her chance But Martin warns her that Regone is a cursed place I don t think even he knew just how true that actually was On reaching Regone, Shannon is immediately introduced to Roderick, a knight who thinks well of himself and happens to take a keen intere [...]


  11. I m a sucker for a dragon story, and this one is a little different from the usual It starts as a charming little fairy tale, where the girl in the dragon s lair is a spirited and smart young scholar rather than a helpless princess, and the dragon isn t quite what he seems, either The two strike up an unusual friendship This part of the book was lovely, and I enjoyed every moment of it The second half is far predictable, and rather uneven.Here s the premise Shannon is a talented young scholar, [...]


  12. I had a couple of major issues with this book, first and foremost being what a colossal letdown it was in the end I thoroughly enjoyed this for the first 40% or so scholarly girl who doesn t take anyone s crap and knows how she deserves to be treated Heck yeah, sign me up Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there I will admit, I think the description of the book seriously led me astray If I d realized this was fantasy romance, I never would have picked it up mostly because the following is e [...]


  13. I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review All opinions are my own and I never commit to a positive review prior to reading I thoroughly enjoyed Dragon s Curse The Dragon and the Scholar vol I by H.L Burke I kind of accidentally stumbled upon this book when I was searching for other bloggers with similar interests As I ve said before, finding a good, talented, upcoming author is a bit like mining You get a lot of dirt and junk, but occasionally you find a real gem H.L B [...]


  14. So I m really into books with dragons lately Just, you know, in case you hadn t noticed I really loved this one, much than most even H.L Burke is one of those authors that can pack both romance and action into a perfectly wrapped package that will have you ready for before you ve even finished the last page The characters just really leap off the page, especially Shannon She seems to have a good head on her shoulders and is just her own person in general, which I really loved about this book.T [...]


  15. Shannon goes to the Academy as a healer and scholar Her first experience out in the field is taking care of the injured King who had fought with dragons The King feels all dragons are evil after his older brother had been murdered by one When Shannon heals the King s body, can she heal the Kings heart and his country May Contain Contains Spoilers OMG I really enjoyed this book I was highly intrigued when I read the outline of the story But I was under the impression that the characters were goin [...]


  16. Review of DRAGON S CURSE written by H L BURKEI won the book on first reads from Mrs Burke is a good writer and I enjoyed the book It is a quick read and suitable for all ages The only thing I knew about the book before I read it was there were going to be dragons in it and a scholar There were some words used I had never heard of before like missive, which means, a long letter or official letter and about two other words I do not remember at this time I always enjoy learning new words so I will [...]


  17. I received a copy of this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review The very fact that I finished this book in a day should tell you how much I enjoyed it It tells the story of Shannon, a young Scholar who is summoned to heal the injuries of a wounded King Upon arrival, she befriends a Dragon in a nearby cave and as the two grow closer, it becomes apparent that there is to his story than initially meets the eye I liked this story so much, and became hooked from beginning to end The [...]


  18. Dragon s Curse was the first H.L Burke book I ve read and I loved it It made a long boring trip exciting and I hung on each word Shannon is a female scholar and alchemist who meets a dragon, quickly a relationship forms between them She is intrigued by his intelligence There s something about him that s different, he s not an ordinary dragon Shannon being a scholar doesn t have to live by the same female rules as other women, she can choose her mate.Sir Roderick claims to have killed many dragon [...]


  19. I ve been a life long fan of Fantasy, but I m always a little apprehensive when I try a new author because I m not sure it will fit my current tastes I like stories that move quickly, with likable characters who develop meaningful relationships with one another I was pleased by what I found in Dragon s Curse The story is entertaining and romantic.The editorial quality is top notch, so don t be put off by it being self published.The story follows the adventures of Shannon, a young woman on her fi [...]


  20. Dragon s Curse is a wonderful self published fantasy romance and, true to the title, it features dragons I devoured it in just a few days, my only disappointment being that the second book is still in the works.It is fairly short as far as novels go, but great things come in small packages, right Of course they do H.L Burke packs action, romance and just enough detail into her book without making it feel rushed Dragon s Curse is a light read while also being incredibly difficult to put down.I lo [...]


  21. Shannon is a scholar and healer and she s never been away from school She wants to travel and see new sites so when an opportunity came up to be a healer to a dragon wounded king, she leaped at it But King Edmund is the king of a cursed kingdom just as Shannon arrives, so does a dragon Shannon must deal with Roderick a crazy knight who is lusting after her, the lady Adonna who is jealous of Shannon and the King, the King who can t move his arm due to the dragon poison, and the new Dragon The act [...]


  22. Highly recommended for fantasy fans Very good book Strong female lead, understandably interested in the visiting dragon than the knight who has sworn to kill it to win her hand in marriage My kind of character A few cliches and predictable plot points at the beginning suddenly spin into an engaging plot that I either didn t see coming at all, or only a paragraph in advance of the reveal Very much enjoyed I have a passion for dragons, when written correctly, and this one is particularly good.Not [...]


  23. Though dragons are not really my thing unless they are Smog , I enjoyed this book.I liked the characters for about the first half but Shannon went from awesome, spunky, stand up for yourself scholar to damsel in distress, which drove me crazy Where d your mind go, Shannon Gnaw also underwent a sad loss of character He became a knight in shining armor and we lost our sarcastic dragon.Why do characters lose themselves when they fall in love I did love the plot I ve heard a lot of people call it pr [...]


  24. This book was an absolute delight I love a fun, light fantasy, and this one fit the bill perfectly I started reading with plans to read a few pages, just to find out what the book was about But I couldn t put it down The fun characters drew me into the story These weren t ordinary, flat characters They had adorable faults that made them seem real In a fun twist, Shannon, the heroine, wants to have magical powers, but instead has to rely on her considerable brainpower The dialogue was witty and [...]


  25. Shannon is a scholar and healer sent to the Kingdom of Regone to treat its King for his injuries received while killing dragons King Edmond has sworn revenge on all dragons for the death of his brother That makes it awkward when Shannon befriends a dragon named Gnaw who has taken up residence outside the city.Shannon has to deal with the King, the aloof woman who is always near the king, and Sir Roderick who believes Shannon should fall at his feet He is increasingly upset that she doesn t With [...]


  26. This book tells an underlying story of longing and hope in between the dominant emotions of revenge, loyalty, betrayal and love.Although the story line was, at times, predictable and parts felt a little too rough, as though written in haste, I found myself drawn into the story and wanting to know the outcome The dragon s character was my favorite and the most believable, while the other characters felt underdeveloped which contributed to the roughness of the story.I have mixed feelings about th [...]


  27. Dragon Curse is the first book in the Dragon and the Scholar series from H L Burke If you like dragons and a little bit of romance, this book is for you.I would have finished this book in one sitting if I didn t have work and had other responsibilities to tend to Dragon s Curse is a short and enjoyable read Love me shorter books especially when they get to the point in a manner that flows This book does that The characters are well thought out, intriguing, and makes the reader wanted to learn a [...]


  28. A dragon with an enchanted twist.Excellent book I was captivated from the start The kingdom has been under a curse A prince killed by a dragon, a king dies after hearing of the loss, and the next prince in line is determined to avenge their deaths A scholar by the name of Shannon is sent to heal the injured king She seeks out the dragon in hopes of having the dragon leave the kingdom A must read to see if she is eaten or unravels a mystery that could save the kingdom.


  29. I found this book to be entertaining The characters were really well written and were likeable There were some good twists within the plot However, I would have preferred in depth descriptions and details as well as a prolonged development towards the relationship of the characters I love the books that can take me right into the pages as if I am right there experiencing what the characters of the novel are feeling, seeing, etc Hopefully the second installment will be able to provide us with [...]


  30. Dragon s Curse was amazing H.L Burke has such a wonderful way of writing Her characters are always so hilariously flawed and it makes them so real I still can t decide whether I liked Gnaw or Shannon better because they were both so sarcastic and human errwelldragon Every time I thought, you know what would be funny If this happened , it always happened without me realizing it I can t wait to start the next one
