Goodreads Summary:
Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they're positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.

Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.

Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon's newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey: and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember's bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him: and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.


I have yet to read a book about dragons but I have a good feeling this is a great book to start with!

What are you guys waiting on this week?

  3. I saw this book a few months back and it really got my attention. I haven't read anything about dragons either but they are amazing! I also love the cover, even though it's so simple. Here is my post: http://littlegingerbookangel.blogspot.com/2014/09/waiting-on-wednesday.html

  11. I've read this and I think that if you haven't read a dragon book, it's a good one to start with. It's not incredibly dragon-y. I enjoyed it!
