really liked it

*THIS* is the YA I love and miss. It is not your typical angst-ridden, dystopian love triangle that saturates the genre today. Plus, a HUGE bonus (in my book) is that there are no werewolves, vampires, or fairies of any kind. There are DRAGONS. In YA. Need I say more?

You have your sassy (but not b**chy) 16-year-old girl who just found out she is the daughter of two different Clans of dragonshifters who fled their dragon society in order to be together. Because intermarriage between Clans is forbidden, Bryn is not supposed to exist and is an outcast. When she discovers that not only can she shift but has numerous dragon powers as well, she is forced to attend dragon boarding school to hone her abilities. Once there, she is not only shunned but fears for her life after two failed murder attempts.

The way the book ends is kind of abrupt, but of course this is the first in yet another series. Overall, this was a delightfully, fun read that is a departure from the monotony that has become the currently over-used YA trope du jour.
