More specifically, those centered around the theme or featuring my favorite fantasy creature. Dragons.
And check out the awesome cover art.
Dragon's Blood: Book 1 of Pit Dragon Chronicles by Jane Yolen. (This was my first introduction to dragons as a young person. It's classified as YA, but believe me, it works for adults too. Still re-read these.)
His Majesty's Dragon: Book 1 of Tremaire Series by Naomi Novik. (Excellent alternate history. What if the Napoleonic era including dragons as the main air force for the Brits? History professor/teacher writes them. A little on the lecture side at times, but loved the wit and intelligence of the dragons)
Dragon Champion: Book 1 of Age of Fire series by E. E. Knight (It's pretty much a description of the coming-of-age of three dragon siblings. It stands above the rest, IMHO, for its originality -- the dwarves have glowing beards for example--and for the unique viewpoint through the dragon's eyes. The way it's handled is quite...different.)
