I forced myself to finish this book so I would complete the whole series. Now, I wish I have never wasted my time reading this series in the first place.

This book is tedious, full of cliché, tackiness and unnecessary drama. To me, the whole thing, the war, the drama, the plot, the romance, the friendships, all are senseless. The whole book was basically stupid teenage drama, but with grown up characters now. Elena is even more unbearable than in previos books, which is saying a lot. I disliked a

What did I read?

I'm usually all over this series but this book and the one before it? Na uh. The story in its general being is amazing - the world, the characters, amazing. I mean dragons and dragon riders, hello! What's not to love?

But it seems like in the past two books Woods might have lost her vision or I actually don't know. I'm not the writer here, I just love books. It just seemed like a lot of extra drama and angst for no reason. And it was an incredibly cheesing endi

I thought this book was a whole-lot of drama, and too little action. I imagined this book would be filled with badass fighting scenes, kick-ass dragons clearing all the evil out of Etan. Instead, this novel is strife with a series of misunderstandings, and unnecessary drama, if you ask me. Time after time, we get a SUPER annoying Elena, who honestly, acts like a five year old child. As soon as she sees something she doesn't like, she runs away in the shower and hides away from everyone. She igno ...more

No rating. No review. No nothing.

I hate you, Adrienne Woods. And I don't mean the I love you so much I hate you-hate you, I mean I really hate you.

Why couldn't you have left it alone?
The book was fine enough. Not the best end to an otherwise brilliant series but it was well enough. But no. You just had to attach that bonus chapter

Really!! Is this the turn this series had to take. Why is there the pic of Elena in a warrior look, coz the book have everything else than the war. Its all nonsense drama and nothing else.

It bored me to hell with all the drama going on,I skipped most of the conversations and was just hanging to know the final end. But the misunderstanding part was the final blow and I can get on with this book any more.

It was a great series but the last two books ruined it and how....

Update: these newsletters make me go crazy of wanting the book already
I was really dissapointed in the Starlight. I loved this series and this book was highly anticipated but this book was probably my least favourite in this whole series. While reading it, I had to take long breaks and I even skimmed most of it, just to finish it and even the ending wasn't the best.

The plot was all jumbled up and felt like it wasn't even connected to the previous books. This whole book was based on the drama between Blake and Elena and Tabitha.

I really loved this whole series and am pretty sad about coming to the end of it. I loved all the characters, even if they annoyed me sometimes. I was a little disappointed about this book since all the other books were pretty much a build up for the war that took place in this book and even though this book was the longest, the war played only a little part in it and that was pretty upsetting. I felt like it should have been bigger, and not have ended so quickly. Really happy with how everythin ...more

My Review:
(view spoiler)
I expected more of this book. Especially since it was the last one. The pace was slow and it made the book feel too long.
They're supposed to be planning things, they're at war after all, but she goes back to the academy like nothing is going on. It also wastes time describing boring facts about her routine.
That plus the misunderstandings made want to pull my hair out.

It was such a let down until the very bitter end. What a shame!

This is the final book in the Dragonian series. I finally decided to read it after I let it sit in my TBR for a long time cuz frankly, I was very tired of the drama between Blake and Elena. Mostly, Elena. She was one of the most annoying characters in the series and she does not disappoint, as usual, with this book. The overall Dragonian series story is very interesting. However, Elena always got on my nerves.

The story continues with Elena and Blake trying to reconcile with each other after the

I am happy, sad, hopeful, excited, so many emotions; I can't even put into words how much I've grown to love this series. It has been such an amazing journey. My love for dragons has grown over the past month I've been reading the Dragonian series. I've sobbed and laughed, and cried at school twice.

There has of course been ups and downs, a moment where I wanted to quit because it seemed hard to get through but I read on and it was all worth it. Sure I get confused and a tiny bit annoyed (just a

A disappointing conclusion to a promising series. After a weaker 4th book, I was hesitant to read the final installment, but stellar reviews convinced me to give it a try. I hardly made it to the end, and not because of the significant amount of editing errors.

The cover of the book shows the image of Elena as a fighter and could not be more misleading. I presume that the writer intended to show through the first half of the book the internal struggle of the young women with her traumatic past. S

2020 review- I love this series! Elena finally learns to accept Blake after a harsh road. ANd I love the game she and Becky play on the boys. This book comes full circle and wrap everything up in a great conclusion. Old characters we thought were gone even get another moment. And an unexpected twist that nearly costs them everything! I love the how Blake and Elena have has to work for their relationship and I really loved learning more about what Dents are! Yet be warned, there is tra

OKAY, I really love this series and the characters in it, but this book and Moonbreeze had MAJOR ISSUES. Like the horrible sentences that made no fucking sense. The wrong names and words that didn't even fit together were ALL OVER THE PLACE. It made me mad and took a lot away from the reading experience. This book felt like it had missed the final rounds of editing.

Also, Blake and Elena's relationship drama annoyed me. They already went through the running away/not doing this phase. I didn't ne

I don't even know where to begin on this book. The whole series has torn apart my life, soul, and heart. I connected with these characters on a very deep level, and now that the series is over I feel like apart of me is missing ):
I thought that this was a great finale to the series. We got some loose ends tied up, they finally finished what the whole plot was about, and overall it was just amazing!
I feel that Elena really grew up a lot in this book, even if she was still being annoying about the

This review is breaking my heart to write. I have been in love with this entire series since I first picked it up back in 2013. I have had a special place in my heart for all of these characters for so long (don't worry...I still do!!) but this finale was a let down in many ways. I actually considered not writing a review for this because I simply didn't want to write a review that wasn't raving o

As the last book in the series – I am happy to say that Starlight didn't disappoint (as so many others sometimes do)!

I enjoyed the build up to the inevitable final conclusion and battle. I really couldn’t put it down!

I love that Adrienne doesn’t feel the need to dumb anything down for her readers – small little tit bits and clues are dropped along the way, and yes you are asked to connect the dots – and they all finally get tied up (which makes me so happy - as cannot stand to get to the end and

This is so bitter sweet. I have been a hardcore fan since Firebolt first released. And to read this book really made me emotional.

First, let me say how honored I am that I was a beta reader for this book, but some of my suggestions made it into the final book. I honestly have no words.

I have loved Blake from the start. There was just something about him that amazed me even when he was an a$$ and fighting his dark side.

I had always wished that he and Elena could be together. In Starlight we got

i'm sorely disappointed. regardless of the eventual desired ending, the story was poorly written, in need of some serious editing, grammar reworking, and spell checking. i had to force myself through to the ending, taking multiple breaks between chapters, pages and sometimes even paragraphs. i don't remember the previous books being so poorly written but i hate that it ruins the story for me, especially when what i can remember was that i really LIKED the story :p

Well, thank goodness this series is over. I wanted to like it, the concept was good, however the characters were terrible. The main character is selfish and at no point redeems herself. She has very little character development even throughout five books. Blake’s character evolution is absurd and even when they try to explain it, it still doesn’t make sense. The concept of a dent is obnoxious and doesn’t feel genuine despite the fact that it’s supposed to be the most genuine thing in the world. ...more

I had to finish this series because after four books...well I just had too. I wished it would have had a lot less personal drama by Elena figuratively stomping her foot and refusing to listen to reason. I also could have done without the plethora of "F" words. Seriously, was there no other choices that could have been used to convey being tough or angry or frustrated? Aside from this I am glad there was finally some conclusion and wrap up to the series and I did enjoy a lot of it. I just don't k ...more

I will end this series with this book.
I don't care about the "what ifs" because usually you can't change the past.
I always try to rate a book as soon as I close it so that I can capture exactly how I feel at the time and exactly where that book transported me to. This book is a wonderful example of why I do this because if I had waited until today to rate it, I probably would have dropped that rating to a three star, but truthfully this book was satisfying in so many ways and when I finally came to the close of it and reminisced about the entire story that I had read, I needed to give it the four stars beca ...more

I have now read all 5 books of this series. I started in the mood for some light, fun fantasy. I liked the first 3 books ok. I found the fourth book to be the best of the four because it finally addressed the Etan plot. Yes, there was a lot of whining by Elena and I wanted to say grow the hell up but it was definitely the best of the four – then came book five. Let me start by saying that had the first book been of this quality then I would have never finished it let alone read all five. In othe ...more
