Waiting on Wednesday: Dragon's Heart by Jane Yolen

"Waiting on" Wednesday was created by Jill of Breaking the Spine, and is a way for bloggers to share the upcoming books that they're longing for. This week I'm waiting on...

Dragon's Heart
The Pit Dragon Chronicles, Book 4
by Jane Yolen
Sequel to: Dragon's Blood, Heart's Blood, and A Sending of Dragons
Released May 4th 2009

Austar IV isn't the planet it once was, and when Jakkin and Akki finally return to the dragon nursery, their homecoming arouses mixed emotions. Together they've survived the insurmountable, and now they can weather the brutal conditions of Dark After and communicate with the dragons they love. But with this knowledge comes responsibility. What they've learned about survival could transform the planet--or, if entrusted to the wrong hands, bring about its destruction. Akki's insistence that she return to the Rokk to finish her training and begin new experiments drives a chasm between her and Jakkin. Suddenly she finds herself in the midst of a political battle that could claim her life. Only Jakkin can save her. If only he could reach her....

Why I'm waiting:
Because the first three books were very unusual and original and I want the ability to FINALLY read the rest of Jakkin and Akki's story! This book has been a looooong time in coming, and I'm very excited to see it being published for real instead of just rumored.


  1. I haven't read any of these yet. Are they really worth waiting for? I will have to let students know!!

    PS - how do you put a link in the comments?

  2. I just found out this book is coming! I'm so excited- I loved the first three and never knew she was going to write a fourth. It's a great seris.

  3. I hadn't even heard the rumors that there was going to be a fourth one, but I'm really excited about this now! I loved these books growing up!

  4. I've never even heard of this series, but I'll be finding out more.

  5. KB - Yes, they're worth waiting for; there have been books about dragons before, there have been books about people with connections to dragons before, but there have never been (before these) books about people who live on different plants and are connected to dragons that are used as livestock and trained to fight for entertainment.

    And to put links into comments, you have to use simple HTML coding.

  6. I absolutely loved this series; it’s definitely one of my favorites and Jane Yolen is an awesome author.

  7. As soon as I saw our Library had ordered it I put it on hold. Whaa Hoo!.. 1st on the list.

    Hey, I need art supplies. Money goes to them in these hard times.
