Over the last two days, I’ve been reading the ebook Balanced on the Blade’s Edge by Lindsay Buroker on my kindle. It’s the first book in the Dragon Blood series and I have to say, I really did love it. This is one of those books that I found difficult to put down, always wanting to know what happens next.

The characters have their own quirks and mannerisms and the gentle humour in a lot of their interactions makes them all the more believable. The plot was intriguing and the world is very unique. Despite most of the story being set on an icy mountain, a lot happens in a short space of time and the reader is always kept interested.

I’m curious to see where the story goes next and, after having liked this book so much, I have added the second book in the series to my TBR list. I think there are now four in the series.



The owl was gone in the morning. Ridge probably would have discovered this himself eventually, but he was still snuggled under the parkas with Sardelle when the shout came from outside. He sat up and shivered at the cold air that blasted him. His poor soldiers had doubtlessly had a less enjoyable night than he, so he wouldn’t complain.


Colonel Ridge Zirkander had walked the hall to General Ort’s office so many times he suspected his boots were responsible for the threadbare state of the drab grey carpet runner. The two privates standing guard on either side of the door were too well trained to exchange knowing smirks, but that didn’t mean gossip of this meeting wouldn’t be all over the citadel by noon.
