Never judge a dragon
by her human cover...

Sixteen-year-old Kitty Lung has everyone convinced she’s a normal teen—not a secret government operative, not the one charged with protecting the president’s son, and certainly not a were-dragon. The only one she trusts with the truth is her best friend—and secret crush—the über-hot Bulisani Mathe.

Then a junior operative breaks Rule

If you're at all wary of reading a book about weredragons, don't be. This urban fantasy is SO well-written, with tons of action and parts that will make you laugh and swoon. I absolutely love the diversity in the story, and the lore, and pretty much everything about it. If you're looking for something different and fun, this is the one! (totally didn't mean to rhyme, but sometimes it just happens when I'm excited :))

I received a copy of Dragons Are People, Too in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to Entangled and Netgalley. A copy of this review is also on my blog:

On the face of it, Kitty Lung is just an average sixteen year old girl. She goes to high school, she has a massive crush on her best friend, she reads gossip magazines. Appearances can be deceiving, though, because Kitty is in fact...a WERE-DRAGON!

I want to say that again. WERE-DRAGON!

Seriously, I’m ridiculous

Okay, first of all, I WANT a CINDY! Don't know what a CINDY is? Well then, I guess you'll have to read and find out. ;)

I was a little worried before I read this that the description of a person, changing to a dragon, was going to be confusing, and pull me out of the story. But Sarah Nicolas does a fantastic job of not only describing the change, but what each of the differnt kinds of dragons look and move like. I could absolutely picture them, in whichever form they were.

Thanks to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing LLC for giving me this book to review.

Most people think that Kitty Lung is an average teenage girl, not a government operative, charged with protecting the president’s son, Jacob, and certainly not a were-dragon. When an operative under Kitty’s command breaks rule number one, don’t change into dragon form in public, the lives of all dragons change. With the government incarcerating dragons and a new enemy having kidnaped Jacob, only Kitty and her best

Every once in awhile I read a book that totally blows my mind. The story is so well-written and the characters change my perspective on life, love and pursuit of equality. Dragons Are People, Too is such a book.

I had no expectations about this book other than it was about dragons, which I have loved since the 8th grade. The premise doesn't do it justice but the cover comes close.

Kitty Lung is your typical teenage girl. Goes to school, has a crush on her best friend, argues with her mother, goes

I love dragons, and the idea of dragon shifters is awesome. Put dragon in the title, and I'm bound to read it sooner or later. Dragons Are People, Too is a fast-paced thrill ride featuring a sixteen-year-old dragon working for a secret government organization of dragon shifters.

I really liked Kitty. She was so tough, having trained for her job since she was four. But she also showed emotion and weakness at times which made her

Two thumbs up for diversity and butt-kicking!

Two huge thumbs up to Sarah Nicolas for making her protagonist and love interest not-white. I was so thrilled to get some diversity up in my ereader! Not only that, they were both great characters. Kitty wouldn't even know how to step back and let someone else trample her decision making and she holds her own against foes. If you prefer Katniss or Tris types of heroines you will love Kitty and Bulisani is an excellent match for her.

((4.5 stars))

I started off liking this, then around 30% I was like maybe not, but then something happened and I fell IN LOVE with this book. That something was more than likely Bulisani Mathe, because he's sweet and adorable and hot, but the high octane plot, dragon fighting action, and spy stuff didn't hurt either.

Dragons Are People, Too is a brilliant blend of thriller and conspiracy, heartfelt romance and driven action. The dragons are really cool, woven into modern life wonderfully, and I lo

Chines dragons don't have wings, but can manipulate earth's magnetic fields in order to fly. Their body is longer and thinner then the English ones., it has a shape of 30 foot green serpent with yellow spines all the way down back. they have a kind of colorful com on their head. They can't breath fire.

The main thing to draw me to this book was one word. Dragons. Any time I see the word dragon I'm like a meerkat popping it's head up. I love dragons and if a book is about them then there is a very strong chance I will read it. Dragons Are People, Too though was such a unique take on dragons. These are were-dragons and I think I've only read one other book about people that can shift into dragons and it was nothing like this. I absolutely loved Nicolas' take on th

I wanted to read Dragons Are People, Too because of the title. It seemed like such a weird title, I had to find out why it was called that way.

Turns out that dragons are people, too mainly because they are were dragons and spend most of their time in human form working for a specialized government organization fulfilling secret spying missions. Rule number one, never let them see your dragon side. When one of these missions blows up an

I love books about shapeshifters and haven't read a lot of dragon shapeshifter books yet, so when I heard about this book I jumped on the chance to read and review this book. It's a fun and original book about dragon shapeshifters with diverse characters. I had some issues with this book, but overall I enjoyed it. My biggest issue was that while the beginning is spectacular, after that it loses a bit of the pace and power. The beginning was so go

3.5 stars. This is a fun, fast-paced YA tale with dragons, secret government operatives, a bit of romance and a race against time to save the President’s son. Kitty may only be sixteen but she’s the daughter of two dragon commanders and has been in spy training since she was four (yeah, I know…), she’s super-smart, speaks several languages and, actually, considering all of that, is a bit of a self-absorbed brat. She’s got attitude and a bad temper and spends most of her time drooling over her be ...more

Previously reviewed on The Good, The Bad, and The Unread:

One of the great freedoms of young adult novels is the lack of need for explanations, which is why I’m far more trusting of shifter stories in the genre than I am in paranormal romances aimed at older audiences. I’ve been burned once too often by stories that give impossible ‘scientific’ explanations for were-whatevers, while I’ll happily accept that such things ‘just are’ in the universe I’ve been plunged into upon opening the book.

I would like to thank author Sarah Nicolas for giving me the opportunity to read and review her novel, Dragons Are People, Too.

Kitty Lung is far from a normal teenager, but like most teens she’s great at keeping secrets. First, she’s undercover at school with the President’s son as part of his protection detail, along with her friend Sani. She gets sent on top-secret missions for the government when she has time. She mig

You'll need to read this book to find out what a CINDY is... but I need one now!

The right side of the screen then shows a close-up of the protesters. There are only about thirty of them, but Gods bless them they're energetic. And they have catchy picket signs, like: "Set the dragon-people free!" and "Dragons are people, too!" and "End Racial Segregation! Again!"

What I liked: We all know I'm hopelessly in love with dragons, right? Right. There aren't very many dragonshifter books out there that I'm aware of. I mean, the only other one I can think of is the Going Down in Flames series (which was awesome in it own right, of course). Yet, Going Down in Flames is different from Dragons Are People, Too. Not only in the types of dragons each book presents, but in the way the two main characters are. Of course, they have their similarities as well, but I mean ...more

It's Kitty's job to take on various missions through the world for the U.S. She's also responsible for keeping the President's son safe while at school.

I loved this book!. It was an entertaining, thoroughly engaging read! I loved Kitty from the start and loved her even more as I read further into her story.

Kitty is a strong protagonist. Brave and fully capable of holding her own despite being so young in life. She’s responsible for so much, and yet, despite the complications that come with her responsibilities, she does whatever is needed, asked, and expected of her. I loved
