Read 2 times. Last read September 8, 2018 to September 15, 2018.

Actual rating 2.5 stars
Weak and Undeveloped, but entertaining enough.

It is fine, interesting. But there is something missing here.
The story is not all there, and the romance is too superficial. More development and connexions between the characters are needed, more deepness.
The characters and fantasy are feeble. The dragon part is too weak. To me, it needed to be more prevalent and powerful in the story. More fantasy. The dragon characters are puny and too human. Ember is too high-school to be believable as a dragon who grew up in a different community.

I might give the second book a chance, but I am not very hopeful.

P.S.:I am a bit surprised this is a Julie Kagawa's book. I looove her Blood of Eden Series and it is a great contrast with what we have here.
