Lots of Harry Potter-like qualities to this book. And a book any fan of the aforementioned series should check out!

Sometimes a "Young Adult" book is a great all around story. This is one of those books.

Dragons. Right. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year old Elena Watkins was no different.
Until the night a fairy tale killed her father.
Now Elena’s in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a Prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh. And the only way Elena’s going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own.
Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe – in herself.

this is such a good series, it’s worth every penny. definitely recommend 10/10. storyline is so realistic and interesting.
Great but iBooks deleted.
I’m a huge fan of reading paranormal books. However, it is not often that I choose to buy sequels and full series. That being said, Adrienne’s The Dragonian series was absolutely phenomenal. I’ll admit that the first two books can be a touch slow but altogether the six books put together an astonishing story.
Sadly, despite purchasing all of the books in the series... Apple iBooks in the latest update somehow removed these books from my library. I’m truly very disappointed in this and would be the sole reason I would tell you to hesitate in buying these... you just may not know when Apple has a bug resulting in these books disappearing from your library.
Fair plot and world, slow pacing, needs refinement
Overall this book was a fair read, but the grammar, characterization, typos, and pace made it frustrating to read. The actual attention-worthy events of the book don’t take place until the last third... the book was too long to justify what actually took place.
There were also many important details that were either skipped over or needed justification, yet the book is filled with over-narration and pointless details. Why is virginity so important in this story? There was nothing about the trials faced by the main character that made being a virgin a necessary detail, yet it’s a theme that is brought up time and time again. There were also a couple of places where Christianity was inserted without any explanation or history of any of the characters being religious. I think this is just a case of the author forcing her viewpoints on her characters, which just seems naïve and immature.
I think this book should have gone through three times as many edits. Fix the grammar and typos, develop relevant plot details, and cut the contrived side stories. I will not be reading this series any further, which is rather unfortunate as I do love the world that was constructed. Ultimately though, I’m more frustrated than eager when I flipped the last page, so I’m giving the rest of this series a pass.
