Blog Tour + Guest Post with Resa Nelson, author of The Dragon's Egg




The Dragon's Egg is the fourth installment of the Dragonslayer series by Resa Nelson. I interviewed Resa this past August for the first three books in the series. Now she's back and I've asked her to share her top 5 reasons why dragons rock (because we all know dragons are the superior of all mythological creatures :P).

The Top Five Reasons Why Dragons Rock by Resa Nelson

1.     Armor-like scales make them hard to kill – when you’re at the top of the food chain, the world becomes an “all-you-can-eat” luncheon buffet.

2.    I dare you to watch a dragon’s egg crack open, see a tiny head emerge, and not say, “Awwww…”

3.    Have you ever met a dragon with a self-esteem problem?

4.    Dragons would have thrived among dinosaurs.  (And for all we know, they did.)


5.    Dragons don’t care about the rat race.  They’re rather curl up on a big rock and bask in the sun.



Thank you for sharing with us today, Resa! Learn more about Resa and The Dragon's Egg (Book #4) below:




Summary for The Dragon’s Egg (Book 4)
In the fourth and final book of the Dragonslayer series, Mandulane’s army is poised to attack the Northlands in the name of a powerful god, but in truth Mandulane is using the act of spreading this new faith as a way to disguise his own personal greed and hunger for power.

Astrid has succeeded in warning her beloved country of imminent danger, and the Northlanders scramble to set up a clever defense, never realizing a spy in their midst is poised to take critical information directly to Mandulane.

After sacrificing herself in order to set her brother Drageen free for the sake of protecting the Northlands, Astrid finds herself controlled by the stone of light.  Although it forces her path of destiny, Astrid learns she must make one final choice about who she wants to be.

Most important of all, her new sweetheart Trep encounters a dragon that entrusts him with the care of a dragon’s egg.  Trep embraces a dangerous journey and accepts the duty of protecting the unhatched dragon, knowing that its safety could impact the fate of the entire world.
