The Dragon's Egg is the impressive and bittersweet ending to Astrid's journey. It will bring tears to your eyes and leave hope blooming. Resa Nelson concludes The Dragonslayer Series in a show of action and adventure that lives up to her usual style of story telling. I'm still wrapping my brain around the fact that this is the end of the series. I've become so attached to Astrid and the anxious wait to dive into her next adventure. I feel a little bereft knowing that The Dragon's Egg is her final journey. This journey is filled with familiar faces, danger, and surprise. The plot doesn't lag or feel like it's being stretched to keep interest. Just knowing that whatever awaits Astrid at the end of the novel is something extremely life changing and unpredictable was enough to keep my interest and keep me rushing to finish the story. What sets this fourth book of the Dragonslayer Series apart from its previous novels is the perspectives. Readers will be able to view the story from multiple points of view. The bigger picture of Nelson's fantasy world is easier to recognize and the relationship between the dragons and the Scaldings is greatly clarified. The series has truly evolved from the first installment in which readers are introduced to Astrid and her struggle to find peace with her past and with who she truly is. Nelson began widening our attention beyond Astrid and her home in Guell: taking us on journeys to the Northernlands, introducing the dire situation with the Krystr army, and inviting us to where it all began, Tower Island. The Dragon's Egg sees the subtle shift in focus to the present state and future of Astrid's world. Nelson ties up loose ends and satisfies any lingering questions we may have had regarding Astrid's family history or what the dragon's are up to in the human realm. The Dragon's Egg is a conclusion that I was torn over. I didn't want this to be the last of the Dragonslayer's series, but now that it's here and I've read it, I'm happy it's the finale! *Ebook provided in exchange for an honest review*

I really love the Dragonslayer series by Resa Nelson! I finished the final book of the series today and it was breathtaking. The Dragon's Egg is a brilliant wrap-up to the series. I love how everything just seemed to meld together and flow along so well. The story continues Astrid's journey in life, love and war. She struggles to do what is right at all times. Astrid is such a multi-faceted character. She is pretty high on my list of best heroines ever.  Mandulane (the bad guy) cracked me up with his clotheshorse obsession. And the introduction of Killing Crow was a nice touch. It was also very interesting to have Dragreen come back into play. I just love all of the characters that Nelson has developed so well! The ending was bitter sweet. I just did not want this series to end. It's just too good! But, the story took a natural course and everyone ended up where they needed to be.  I highly recommend the Dragonslayer series. It will be unlike anything else you've read, but I bet you will love it like I did. Or I hope! 5 stars to The Dragon's Egg.
