Some books that I have loved include:
- Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir - In a brutal world a girl who is orphaned when her entire family is killed or taken fights to get her last remaining family back. (There are 3 books in this series. I love #1 and #2, but not the third one as much.)
- Ranger's Apprentice by John Flanagan - An orphan boy dreams of being apprenticed to the battle school, but instead is chosen by the secretive King's Rangers. )There are 12 books in this series and I loved every one of them.
- The Weight of Swords by Lance Conrad - The country of Helveti has endured numerous attacks from dragons only fought back by sword bearers using ancient weapons. Artair is a master sword bearer who must fight for his own life and his country
- The Selection by Kiera Cass - A poor girl is selected to vie for the throne and marry the handsome prince. America doesn't want either of these things but is forced to compete anyway.
- Deathwatch by Robb White - A college students is hired to take a rich man Bighorn sheep hunting. When he "accidently" shoots a homeless man whom he thinks is a sheep. The college student is placed in a situation where he must choose between being honest or the rich mans belief that anything can be bought for a price. I loved the plot twist at the end.
