Lutapolii: White Dragon of the South

Winner of the 2019 Sir Julius Vogel award for Best Youth Novel, Lutapolii: White Dragon of the South by New Zealand author Deryn Pittar is a story of a young dragon’s efforts to escape the tyranny of his flight’s abusive monarch and to establish his own flight in a new territory.

It’s a pretty predictable story line, but nicely told. The solutions Lutapolii comes up with for his problems are rather clever, and I enjoyed the descriptions of his new home in a cold climate, where hot springs keep him and the dragons who join him warm through the harsh winters.
