Dragons walk among us in the groundbreaking modern fantasy series from Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author of The Iron King.

Dragon v. dragonslayer

To take her rightful place in the powerful Talon organization, hatchling Ember Hill must prove she can hide her dragon nature and blend in with humans. Her delight at the prospect of a summer of human teen experiences is short-lived, however, once she discovers that she must also train for her destined career in Talon. But a chance meeting with a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught.

Garret Xavier Sebastian, a young dragonslayer in the top-secret Order of St. George, is tasked with hunting her down. But when faced with Ember’s bravery, confidence, and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything the Order has ingrained in him?and what he might be willing to give up to learn the truth about dragons.

Awesome Dragon Shifter Book

This book has been on my TBR for so long. I have no idea why I waited so long to read it. I need the next one right now. I loved Ember. I would recommend this book.

Creative idea, enjoyable read

Kagawa's YA novel, Talon - the first in a series, is a fast moving, enjoyable novel about Ember Hill, a teenager who happens to be a dragons who can take human form. She and her brother are being trained as possible sleepers to live among humans for the mysterious Talon - the dragon 'government' organization that determines what each dragon will do when they mature.

But dragons have been hunted by the mysterious Order of St. George for hundreds of years. Ember meets Garrett who has been raised by the order and is searching for sleepers. Of course, neither knows. Throw in the rogue dragon who helps other dragons who don't fit into Talon. He tries to convince Ember that Talon is a brutal, totalitarian government and she should come with him.

While there is the expected tension between the two male potentials, Ember find herself frustrated by her domineering trainer, the growing distance between her and her brother, and trying to find time to surf - the closest thing she can have since she isn't allowed to transform and fly.

The characters were well drawn, although I found Garrett and the rogue somewhat typed. The story it self was fast paced and moved along. The parable aspect of the novel wasn't overdone and the writing and dialog was entertaining.
