3.5 STARS I wrote a long and indepth review for this book but then lost it. So I will give you the very short version. At first I wasn't convinced by the whole "dragon people" story line but I soon got past it (although I do still have a few questions I would like cleared up) and thoroughly enjoyed the book but I had to deduct stars for the lack of ending to this story. This was not a cliff hanger but a failure to complete a narrative that up until that point had 5 star potential. I would suggest to anyone who is thinking about reading this book that they wait for the second book to be released and then read the two books consecutively. Otherwise you too are likely to be very frustrated!
