Swords of the Six by Scott Appleton

Gorgeous cover, right?

Here's the book description from the publisher's site: 

In ancient times a band of warriors escorted a young prince homeward. Only one warrior remained true. He watched helplessly as the others slew their young charge. Death seemed to claim him as well. But he awoke one thousand years later, brought back by the prophets of God to serve them once again as an invisible guardian. One of the prophets, an albino dragon, hatched human daughters out of eggs by giving them the life in his blood. The daughters sought out the traitor to bring him to repentance. Out of remorse for his sins, the traitor slew himself on a sword. Upon the daughters’ return their dragon father sent them to live in a far off forest. The youngest daughter fell in love and wed. But upon giving birth to a beautiful baby girl she gave up the life in her blood and died; making the ultimate sacrifice to bring a child of promise into the world.

    Totes excited for the new giveaway! I've been wanting to try Swords of the Six for a long time; maybe this'll be my chance!

    My favorite book growing up was probably either The Hobbit or one of the Chronicles of Narnia.

  3. Oo, thank you for the giveaway, Gillian. The summary sounds a bit bizarre, but I've always been drawn to this book because of the cover. Did you like the story?

    Hmm, I loved The Little Princess growing up. Also, the Winnie the Horse Gentler series. And The Chronicles of Narnia. I could go on and on. :)

    1. The book description does seem to sorta give away the entire story...

      I kinda skim read this one, since my to-read shelf was so stuffed!

      I loved the Little Princess too ... and Chronicles of Narnia! My list of favorite childhood books is probably way to long to try and type up here!

  6. My favorite book was, and still is, Surviving the Applewhites. By now, I could probably tell you exactly what happens in every chapter, but I'll never get bored of it.

Overly negative comments will be banished to the netherworld and the less than pleasant company of the various balrogs, trolls, and monsters already imprisoned there.
