Lots of people do book reviews on their blogs, and since I read books, I figure I might as well.

The latest series I've got into is the Age of Fire Series by E. E. Knight. It kicks ass. It's about dragons. But real dragons. Not the new age dragons that form a spiritual telepathic bond between themselves and their rider upon hatching. Real dragons - that eat people.

They're sentient, but they're definitely not human. They have instincts that are very not human, and it affects how they're relationships and societies form. Males are territorial and will kill one another. When they form cities, one of the most important trade routes is the one that brings in incense for them to burn that covers up the male smell so that the males can live together peacefully. There's all kinds of point like that; the whole world is very well thought out.

They're also easy to read, the plots move fast, and while the world is rich and seamless, the author doesn't get bogged down with details. This one, I would highly recommend. Unless you have a problem with toddlers being eaten.
