Top ten dragons in fiction

Julie Kagawa is the bestselling author of the Iron Fey series, the Blood of Eden series and the TALON series. One of her top ten dragons in fiction, as shared at the Guardian:
Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion from Game of Thrones series by George RR Martin

Daenery Targaryon is one of two of my favourite female leads in Game of Thrones (the other being Arya Stark), and not just because of her dragons. She is strong, determined and powerful woman in a world dominated by men. She has grown up through the books, and has had to make some truly heartbreaking decisions, but she stands tall and carries on. Her three dragons aren’t the only cool thing about her, but let’s face it, they are extremely badass.
Read about the other entries on the list.

A Game of Thrones is among Ryan Britt's six best Scout Finches from sci-fi & fantasy, Charlotte Seager's top five spoiled suppers in literature, Melissa Grey's five top female characters of under-appreciated strength, Non Pratt's top ten toxic friendships in literature, Becky Ferreira's eight best siblings in literature, and Nicole Hill's top six books on gluttony. A Song of Ice and Fire is among Ferreira's six favorite redheads in literature and six best books with dragons, Joel Cunningham's seven top books featuring long winters. The Red Wedding in A Storm of Swords is one of Ferreira's top six most momentous weddings in fiction.
