Talon by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ember and Dante Hill are ready to begin their next stage of training. They have been given the summer to acclimate and assimilate into the human culture. This is vitally important since they are both dragons of Talon. A secret organization that goes by the name “The Order of St. George” has been hunting dragons for hundreds of years, yet the dragons of Talon have learned to fight back and are getting stronger and growing in numbers. Ember is enjoying her summer as a carefree girl … that is until a rogue dragon introduces her to the hidden side of Talon and she begins to question everything she has been taught.
Talon is the first book in a new series by Julie Kagawa. Readers who enjoyed her books about Faerie and a world controlled by vampires will not be disappointed in this world where dragons are real. Even though the chapters alternate perspectives with a variety of characters, readers should not have any difficulties with following the story line. Every once in a while, Kagawa will back up with a perspective change so that the reader will understand what the other character was seeing and feeling. Talon is a great read and has the outlook of a great series.
