Frostwing: Dragonbond (Book One of the Frostwing Quadrilogy) by Morgan Lee Clasper
Taming dragons is a death wish—but that won’t stop her.
Ava Frostborn is the daughter of a wealthy coal-family, tasked with running the fires which keep their isolated cities alive. She knows she’ll soon follow in her family’s footsteps, even though she hates the way her father exploits the slums.
But when a trip to a neighbouring city goes horribly wrong, Ava finds herself lost and alone in an inhospitable frozen wilderness—and she soon discovers there are far bigger threats out there than bandits and storms.

And when her home becomes the target of bloodthirsty bandits, she realizes she’d better learn fast…
