One minute your a young girl running for your life as dragons pillage your town. The next you watch as your friend goes up in smoke, literally. Then you transform into a dragon- which is beyond awesome. I'd never thought the way he has them transform from people to dragons as a possibility, and I definitely didn't see the twist coming until the friend went up in smoke and it all started to make sense. And for the young girl it all happened so fast because for her dragons didn't exist one minute, the next they destroyed her town, then she turns into one.
I have a lot of unanswered questions at this point, so I'll be anxiously awaiting the next installment of this series. Because I want to know if they find the rainbow-haired girl, and what happens to the baby that is born at the beginning of the novel?
I highly recommend this novel and this author because he has quite a way with words and paints a vivid picture that pulls you quickly into the story.
Simmons is setting up the backstory for a series. I've said in other reviews and I'll say it again - world-building is exceedingly difficult, and Simmons works hard to get it right.
In this story, we are thrown right into the action - an attack by the eponymous mythical creatures that were believed to be dead. The countryside becomes besieged by dragons, and those stragglers around the countryside are forced into scavenging. Those who aren't decimated along with their towns are infected with a plague. One survivor of the initial attack, a baby girl with dragon-like eyes, wants to fight back, whatever the cost.
There's intrigue set up. There's obviously action. While I wanted more at the end, I knew ahead of time what I was getting myself into. Book 0 in any series is rarely going to give you total closure. So no, there was no real denouement, but I've read far worse cliffhangers. (Seriously, I don't remember the book, but it wasn't one of Simmons', that literally ended mid-sentence, and let me tell you, THAT was enough to put me off a series).
I can be forgiving of a lot in books. It's just my nature. Is this review completely unbiased? No, it's really not. I'm a fan of Simmons'; he's on my personal favorite author list. I think, that if you go into this fantasy story with an open mind and KNOWING it's a lead-in to an upcoming series, you will be pleasantly surprised.
A baby is born with slanted golden eyes and the mother hates it. She doesn't want the monster. That's when the dragons show up and burn down the town. But one person survives the attack. And there comes a couple from far away only to find the destruction of the town and the baby with the golden eyes.
Years later, you find out what happens to the baby plus the one person that survives the holocaust.
This is an interesting short story that gives you a taste of what is to happen in the next book. I can't wait to start the next book.
What will her job be in the city? Will she make a difference? Only time will tell. I received this book for an honest review.
Really enjoyed this book. Born not wanted by her mother then abandoned by the midwife & her assistant she was found, taken in and raised by a loving.couple who wanted a baby. This book tells of the day she was born. What happened then when the dragons appeared & what happened afterwards in the years that followed. Her teachings on dragons & her imagination of them. Then finally seeing one triggering her true form. Big Cliffhanger this is only book one in the series or a prequel.
I picked this up because of such great reviews
I didn't expect it to be so short and I mean it was done before it even started
can't even call it a "cliff hanger"
but like all the other reviews, I'll give it a good start but still bummed about it being short
The start of a new series and a new world. Wow, this book started with a bang and kept you on the edge of your seat right 'till the end. The story follows Millie, an experienced healer, and Wylan, a baby born with golden eyes and their experiences and adventures when the dragons came. What will happen to Millie? And what does Wylan, the child with the golden eyes have to do with the return of the dragons? Read this book and you will find out. I can't wait to get started on the next book, Dragon Plagued.
Happy reading. I just know you're going to enjoy this book.

Wylan's life changed right after she was born with the arrival of the dragons.Read more
Main character built well, could use more development for support characters.
Mispellings were a bit distracting.
