This is the first book in the Talon series by Julie Kagawa.

In Kagawa’s world dragons lives among us, hiding in human form. The dragons of Talon are becoming strong and they’re positioned to take over the world but the Order of St. George is hunting them down. This is a story about Ember Hill, a dragon hiding in human form. She wants to live the teen experience and enjoy summer before taking her destined place in Talon but the summer turns out to be challenging.Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons and his new mission is to kill Talon’s newest recruits. Ember and Garret’s path crossed and everything gets complicated, and there is obviously a love triangle as well.

I really enjoyed this book. The plot is fresh and intriguing, the story interesting and the writing pretty good. This book is written in multiple points of view, which I liked. However, it was a slow read and it took a while before anything really happened. The love triangle is not interesting or really believable to me. It feels false, like Kagawa just put it there because it is expected.

The ending was great though, and made me want to continue to read this series!
