    One thought on “A Shard of Sun”

    1. Shard is a gryfon entrusted with a great responsibility. A dragon of the Sunland has left her newborn kit to his care, and now Shard has difficult decisions to make about how best to keep the swiftly growing dragonet safe, while remaining true to his own destiny and the prophecy of the Summer King. He sets out to return the dragonet to his kin in the Sunland and find help for his own quest, but his hope for making wise and benevolent allies is quickly replaced with the reality of cold, mistrustf [...]

    2. Disclaimer: I received this book through its Kickstarter campaign. As I clicked through the final page on my Kindle, I closed my eyes, leaned back in my chair, and wondered: Had I read too quickly? Should I have taken my time? Perhaps; but the beauty of books is that you can always go back and find things that you missed the first time through. And the reason why I finished so fast (two days) was because I was desperate to know what happened next.A Shard of Sun picks up where Skyfire left off: S [...]

    3. The more I learn about this world, the more I *want* to know. And hey, I'm partial to stories with dragons. :3Onward to the last book!

    4. I received an advance copy of the ebook version of this novel as part of the Kickstarter campaign.This was a truly fantastic book and an amazing entry into the series! This book easily surpassed all of my expectations. It was both beautiful and heartbreaking. Reunions, separations, forgiveness and finally the truth behind the dragons, the gryfons and the Nameless dragons terrorizing the countryside. What I noticed the most about this book was how much Shard has matured. He definitely feels more [...]

    5. Truly captivating! I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review – not once did I regret that move. Where does one begin but at the end? And what a cliff-hanger of an ending it was! Hold up, what am I saying? The end, of course it isn’t the end. But it is the beginning to an end, and if the last book holds up as much as the previous three have then we’re in for a treat! A Shard of Sun, follows on from Skyfire with Shard carrying the heavy burden of trying to find a s [...]

    6. Oh goodness, where to start? This book is amazing. After the first two, I thought there was no way book 3 could be any better--but it is.Shard and Hikaru, the young dragon from the end of book 2, are together and bound for adventure. Hunted by the terrible Wyrms, they flee across country, aiming for the homeland of the dragons, hoping for help with communicating with the Wyrms and stopping their deadly onslaught against the gryfons.Meanwhile, Kjorn, Shard's wingbrother, arrives on the mainland, [...]

    7. It had been a while since finishing Skyfire, but I was immediately able to pick up on the plot and characters again within a few pages of Shard of Sun.Once more I struck by how incredible Jess' characters are. I genuinely cared about them all, and want to see the conclusion to their stories. Alas I have to wait over a year to see this!One thing I did note and found interesting is Jess' interpretation of dragons. Most portrayals of dragons have them as long-lived creatures. In this world, they on [...]

    8. With a newly-hatched dragon, Hikaru, under his protection, Shard must find a way not only to escape the wyrms but honor the promise he made to Hikaru's mother. Meanwhile, Kjorn has flown all the way from the Silver Isles in search of Shard, but even though he finds traces of Shard everywhere, he can't seem to locate the gryfon himself. And Kjorn, son of Sverin, son of Per, has the infamy of Per dogging him. Will Shard succeed in his quest to understand the history behind Per, the dragons, and th [...]

    9. I received an ARC for an honest review.I've been waiting to review this for what feels like waaay too long.Introducing Book 3 of the Song of the Summer King chronicles, by Jess Owen.First off, I want to take a moment to appreciate the once more out-of-this-world cover art done by Jennifer Miller.It's really, really fantastic. *drools*Okay, on with the review.I am writing this review in return for an ARC copy that Jess Owen was kind enough to send me. There will be no spoilers in this review, but [...]

    10. WOW!! Not since Lord of the Rings or Narnia have I enjoyed a series this much!I cannot say enough good things about these books and this author. The writing is elegant; not overly wordy but just intricate in a way that enables you to see and hear and smell this amazing world as you live this story. The characters are beautifully developed and each has their own wonderful personality that comes through in the dialogue. All of the creatures remain true to their own behaviors as animals. This autho [...]

    11. Can Owen pull off a 5 star series?So far, books 1, 2, and now 3 have earned 5 stars - something I don't give lightly. This makes me very nervous for the final installment - I have had hopes dashed in the final hour before! The pacing is good, the stories well told, the various vantage points well blended. The ending of this book seems to leave nothing wanting for book 4, but we know that's deceptive, as it (surely) won't be as easy as Kjorn and Shard's simple plan. If you've read this far in the [...]

    12. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh I loved (and still love) reading this book! From chapter one with Shard and Hikaru to the end with Shard and Kjorn. I loved following Caj's quest to save his wingbrother Sverin and Shard's trials with the Sunland dragons (I still can't get over how BRATTY they are). I wanted to cry when Hikaru asked if Shard wanted to know the stars back to the Silver Isles and Shard is just like: HOME, and then he says no . . . and then Hikaru STAYS IN THE SUNLAND *bawling* as Shard goe [...]

    13. There are tropes and plots that we love to groan at. "I've seen this a thousand times before, I know exactly what's going to happen, why aren't you giving me anything new"? The very tip top of that list of tropes is the "chosen one" trope. VERY few times is it redeemed in stories with interesting plots and memorable characters, at least in stories written after the year 2000.The Summer King Chronicles is one of those stories as it barrels into its third title, A Shard of Sun.Already we're droppe [...]

    14. If you have read Song of the Summer King and Skyfire then you know what to expect and you will not be disappointed.The story continues, secrets unfold, friendships and loyalties are tested and characters are developing. I'm usually more into hard SF but you just have to love the world and the characters Jess E. Owen has created in this series, i'm already totally looking forward to the next book in the series!

    15. The world of the gryfons gets larger and richer with every book in the series. The first instalment was confined to the Silver Isles; the second took us to the mainland Winderost, adding painted wolves and dragons to the canon. In the third book, we get to visit the frozen Sunlands. The evocative place names, and the recognisable pattern to the names each species gives its members, is among my favourite things about this series.The action is split three ways. We follow Shard, the titular Summer [...]

    16. My favorite book in the summer king chronicles. Exciting and suspenseful, the tension just keeps building for Shard. There are so many secrets and surprises, the world of the silver isles, winderost and sunland grows richer and deeper with every book. I absolutely love the characters, their struggles and their stories, and I feel as if I am flying right along with the gryphon pride and the wyrms and sunland dragons. This series just keeps getting better. I would definitely recommend this book to [...]

    17. Another great chapter for Shard and Kjorn and I love the direction they are going and if my guess is right the ending will be awesome as everything is pointing to a grand united battle however I do feel that some parts are kind of slow and the redemption of Sverin was a bit to brief also the dragons while a interesting twist on the ancient species still seems that it is forcing itself to be tragic just for tragic twist sake. Please let the last book get a physical copy soon please Jess.

    18. Best series ever!= )This is the best series I have read since I read the wings of fire series. I think if you are into dragons or myths you should get it. The summer king is when a gryfon named shard meets a she-wolf. Shard is told he is the summer king and is supposed to untit all animals of the silver islands. From the WAR KING.Five stars all the way! = )

    19. Another fantastic chapter in the Summer King Chronicles. I love how the world gets a little bit bigger with every book. It was a little harder to follow this time around, due to the multiple viewpoints. I found myself skipping ahead to find out what happened and then going back to the skipped chapters to see what I missed. Wonderful twists and turns. I look forward to the next one!

    20. I took my time with this one so I could stay in Shard's world as long as possible. Overall, masterful writing & story. I can hardly contain how excited I am to read the last book and find out how everything unfolds.
