Shrewsbury has a new fantasy novel called Thrall coming out. Those heroic fantasies aren't exactly my bag, but I keep giving them a chance to see if I'll come around, and I've heard Greg Hall and others on the Funky Werepig podcast praise Steven Shrewsbury often enough that I might have to check this out.
As for Jackie Gamber, hers is a name I've heard once in a while but never really stuck with me. But the idea of a YA fantasy series with dragons sounds interesting, starting with the novel Redheart. Granted, I avoided Eragon, but that had nothing to do with subject matter and more to do with the word of mouth I heard about that book.
