**Disclaimer: I was given an e-ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

"pitched as Aegon Targaryen and Hermione Granger with dragons, set in the aftermath of a bloody revolution"

Not too sure what the above means, but I didn't feel it when reading the beginning of Fireborne. I love Game of Thrones, and recently finished Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I'm not sure if my tastes are changing, but I don't think I can handle another series similar to Red Rising, and there are too many knock-off Game of Thrones books. Red Rising, on the other hand, was interesting, but it felt like such a CHORE to finish.

Once Fireborne releases, I'm hoping to give it another shot, but what I read during NetGalley's 24-hour period did not get me hooked.
