Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A truly charming fantasy novel of love, destiny and dragons. War is brewing, treachery abounds and it is just the wrong time for Prince Corin to fall in love, yet the woman he has found seems made for him. She is no weeping lady but a strong and practical woman touched with her own magic. Their powers call to each other just as their bodies do, making their turbulent romance inevitable. It’s not a long book by fantasy standards but it really crams in the plot, covering what others might spread over a trilogy. Consequently there is not a dull moment and something for everyone: war and wooing, ball gowns and swords, politics and magic and dragons. It’s really good fun and I rattled through it.

If you like Anne Leonard you might also like to read books by Sarah Micklem, Diana Wynne Jones and Anne McCaffrey.

Synopsis

Moth and Spark by Anne Leonard

He's cursed with an impossible task. She's blessed with magical visions. Together they can save a divided Empire. Prince Corin has been given the task of freeing the dragons from their bondage to the Empire. However, it seems that that not even the dragonriders themselves know how these terrifying beasts are kept under control. When Tam, a doctor's daughter, arrives in the capital she makes an amazing discovery: she is a Seer, gifted with visions. Sparks fly when Corin and Tam meet ...but it's not all happily ever after. Not only is the prince forbidden to marry a commoner, but war is coming to Caithen. Torn between love and duty, they must work together to uncover the secret that threatens to destroy their country.

Reviews

Fun and beautifully crafted. The novel is something like a Russian nesting doll: it's a Jane Austen novel inside a Princess Bride type fantasy romp inside a much darker Tolkein-esque story of politics, war, magic, and dragons. An impressive debut -- Charlie Lovett, New York Times bestselling author of The Bookman's Tale

Anne has the talent to draw us into the action while still demonstrating romantic sensitivity - The Bookbag
