Dragons. Finally.

I really enjoyed this book. Like...a lot. I was hoping to find/read a YA book that's about dragons. Or in this book's case, draki. Definitely a whole new original unique story. It caught my attention from the first chapter; that's what I like. ;)

The scenery in this has been definitely used in other books. School, then woods. So it wasn't much to call amazing. But it was totally cool, considering it was dealing with dragons descendants. :3

There's only a few characters in this are easy to like for me. As in Jacinda, Will, Catherine, and Cassian. I didn't like Tamra, the mom, Brooklyn, Xander, and Angus. Tamra was waaaaaay too whiny, it seemed like she only thought about herself. (But I kinda feel sorry for her. o.O) And I didn't like Jacinda's and Tamra's mom, just in general. But I understand why she's like that. Protection, safety, yadda yadda. =.= Xander can just go rot in a hole infested with draki. Angus too.

I really liked Will. <3 He was just so cute and adorable.~ He was totally easy to like. :3 But then there's Cassian. It's my nature to fall for the underdog. >w< He really did seem like he wanted to love Jacinda more than the pride wanted them to mate. It was frustrating, totally. But Cassian is a big hunk of male that seemed swoon worthy. :D

I seriously need the next book. Like. Now. ._. I knew I should've gotten it when I got then first. <_<
