On one side of the border lies the modern world: the internet, homecoming dances, cell phones. On the other side dwell the ancient monsters who spark humanity's deepest fears: dragons.
Seventeen-year-old Kay Wyatt knows she's breaking the law by rock climbing near the border, but she'd rather have an adventure than follow the rules. When the dragon Artegal unexpectedly saves her life, the rules are abruptly shattered, and a secret friendship grows between them.
But suspicion and terror are the legacy of human and dragon interactions, and the fragile truce that has maintained peace between the species is unraveling. As tensions mount and battles begin, Kay and Artegal are caught in the middle. Can their friendship change the course of a war?
My Thoughts: First off I have to say to Carrie Vaughn, I know you're a better writer than this. I've read one of your Kitty books and the writing in that was just fine.
Why do some authors think that just because they are writing for a YA audience they have to dumb it down some?
Anyways aside from the writing, I had a lot of problems with the story..I don't really want to go into too much detail because most of the problems I have with the story are a personal preference thing.
I loved Artegal the dragon. He was, in my opinion, the only character worth mentioning. Kay the MC of the book was forgettable. So I don't have much to say about her. Really I can't remember anything specific and I am writing this literally just minutes after finishing the book. I would say however if you have been looking for a modern day book about dragons then this one would be for you.
I give this book 2.5 out of 5
