Born in Flames is the first part of a trilogy which I am looking forward to finishing since I love dragons and loved the concept of the book, however, I always feel a bit disappointed in first books, because I want to know what else happens in the story, but my impatience is hardly Knoebel's fault... I WANT MORE!
So that being said, I enjoyed this book, Knoebel's narration style and The Born in Flame's storyline feels fresh.
The protagonist Aurora is strong, stubborn and a bit hot headed but her counterpart Fenn is level headed and only wants to keep her safe. Due to this, I liked him better, but Aurora holds the book up due to her strength. They were both real enough that I was able to connect to them easily.
Great story and highly recommend it!
