Do you have a mythical being or creature that mesmerizes you? Captures your interest and consumes your mind? Well, I do, and it happens to be dragons. So, when I saw the cover of Dragon Wings, needless to say I was drawn in and intrigued to what this book was going to offer. First, hats off to the cover. Breath-taking is only one way in which to describe the beauty seen before you. But, there is so much more to this book than just the amazing cover. The pages inside, draw you in from the very be ...more

OMG what a roller-coaster ride!!!!! The main reason it took me so long to finish was I didn't want it to end but like all rides they have to end at some point!
The characters in this book are so real, and the school that's how high school truly is wither you want to believe it or not!!! There were so many times I wanted to jump in the book and either knock some sense into characters or just knock em out.
I really liked the quotes from Shakespeare, they fit really well with what was going on!

I am truly a hard and fast fan of the Fae. Many statues and books of fiction, myth and legend adorn my home. Multiple gardens have been planted in their honor; to temp and draw them in. They are elusive and mischievous. And forever near and dear my heart. Dragon Wings is a tale spun of not only my beloved Tuatha de Danaan and Tir Nog Nag, but of Shakespearean verses, the Ferryman, King Arthur and Morgan La Fay and Avalon. On the whole my favorite fantasies and legends rolled into one. It is beyo ...more

How amazing was this book! Just finished it and am on a complete high from reading it.
With their world Avalon in danger members of the fairy royal family come to the human realm to find The Winter Dragon who threatens them all. What the regent prince Dade didn't expect to find was his soul mate Shelby, a regular American teenage girl. Together they discover themselves and each other.

Brilliantly written and ended on an amazing cliffhanger ready for the next book (Pixie Dust)which I will definitel

I became a fan of D.C. Grace’s through her first series, The Guardians and when she told me she was working up a new series about Dragon Fae, I was ready to read it. Now, before I continue I must say, I have become great friends with the author and reading this novel was so much different than anything. She sent me this book chapter to chapter and we talked a lot throughout her writing. It was an amazing experience and I’m thankful she trusted me enough & could rely on me that much as a frie ...more

Hi y'all Anne here with my review of Dragon Wings and wow what a book. Every girl dreams of growing up and marrying her prince right out of a fairy tale, but what if you get to have the Fae prince right out of Avalon? Everybody always asks me what my favorite reads are and I often have no trouble in pointing out my favorites in certain genres or with certain paranormal creatures and now I am happy to add Dragon Wings to that list. A great read for Fae lovers as well as fairytale followers, Drago ...more

Dragon Wings by D.C. Grace is definitely a book I'll be sharing with fellow book friends.

I loved, Loved, LOVED Dragon Wings! The story was absolutely magical! Fey and dragon myth is blended with Arthurian legend to create this wonderfully vivid and memorable tale of two young soulmates.

This is one of the few dragon books I have ever read, and I was not disappointed! I knew after the first few sentences that I would love this book. The writing style Mrs. Grace uses is perfect for the story. A mix

Absolutely loved this book! So very glad that I had Pixie Dust to jump right into because the ending was just so intense.

I really like how D.C. intertwines well known fairy tales into the story - bringing to life legends that we've all heard about our entire lives. I also enjoy how Shakespeare is a big part of the story, giving Dade some very romantic lines.

The characters are well developed, you cannot help but fall in love with Shelby and Dade, and some of their experiences might bring back a f

Be on to write after I scream!!! Lol lol

What an amazing book! From page one I was sucked into this world of Fey, it was heart stopping, page turning and fascinating! If you love The Iron Fey Series you will love love this one as well! I think I have found my new favorite author, and I am sure once you read you will agree. She writes a story of adventure, romance and love with so much more wrapped Into it. You will love the story of Shelby and Dade and all that happens and the journey they take!

Dragon Wings takes from Avalon and the court of Queen Mab to the rural town of Shelbyville, Ky. We first meet Shelby Mercy and her clickers on just another normal day of school. A day where they are planning on dates to the Spring Formal and Friday nights at the skating rink. At first, Shelby and her friends seem to be vapid and superficial. They perpetuate the social differences in the school in every possible way. When they go shopping after school they go into a new shop that has opened and t ...more

Oh, where do I begin!

Best Part of the Book: Dade! Yep that says it all! It took me a a few chapters to figure out was going on because it was very fast paced. However, once it all started to come together it was AWESOME! I love how DC Grace writes. Each chapter is the characters point of view. I love that because you can see what is going on from all levels. This is an action packed book! Dragons, fae, hot guys and (did I say) HOT GUYS! I love Shelby! At first she tried to fight the attraction t

Dragon Wings is a story of everlasting love, passion, fire and fury. Fairy tale meets modern romance in this exciting, thought-provoking story. As battle lines are drawn, darkness and light fight for control. And only one warrior was born to walk both light and dark - the Amethyst Dragon. But who can Dade really trust? The fairies who cannot lie, yet tell creative truths, or the mortals he has always been so suspicious of? Will he save the girl he loves and protect the two realms from the threat ...more

There is as much drama and action as there is romance, and that’s saying a lot as there is a lot of romance in this novel. Enough to make you swoon over and over again. So if you’re looking for a lot of love, action and drama – this is your new read.
