A review for readersFavorite.com
What a hook in the beginning of the book. The first chapter is going to pull you in in just one page. It is fabulously written for young adults who want all now and with a great punch. This story has a great pace and a dramatic twist in every chapter. I enjoy the taste of this book, for it tastes like a winner in the world of fantasy.
Amaneâ€™s mother dies and Amane is to go on a journey to celebrate her motherâ€™s life. She chooses to go alone to the place where she has spent many wonderful times with her mother. She loves the lore of dragons, and the songs that are passed from one generation to the next and her mother was the one who taught them to her. When her teacher insists in changing these stories, she defies her teacher who expels her from school.
At fifteen, all girls are busy procuring a husband, but Amane is busy learning to use a sword and dealing with the death of her mother. During her stay by the cove, one of the rocks she places in a ring for a fire, starts to hatch and she is beaten by the small dragon that emerges from within. Almost dead from the venom deposited by the dragon, Amane sees her dead mother who tells her to go back and stay with her dragon. She does so, and now she must confide in someone that she is linked to a dragon, but who? No one but the healer is at her side.
This book will become a favorite for many young adults and for the young of heart. It is tastefully written, with lots of action and even a bit of romance. I greatly recommend it to lovers of dragons and magic, and readers of fantasy at large. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend it for any library, be it at school or at home.
