Serena is a teenage girl who has been abused by her father for most of her life. Finally, she reaches her breaking point and runs away, eventually finding herself near a dragon cavern. What follows is the story of how she comes to know Cerulean's dragon rider colony, what happens when she gets in with the wrong person, and her journey back to where she needs to be.
As a whole, I thought the story was pretty good. I don't think it was really necessary to present it as a flashback, since we only learn a couple new things about the "present day" as it stands. I did, however, enjoy Serena's story, and the brief glimpses back to Duskya and the children didn't detract from it. I felt the ending was almost wrapped up too perfectly, complete with a bow on top, but at the same time, it's nice to read about happily ever afters every now and then.
I received a free advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
This book, following the trend of its series, gets 5 stars.
1: I was so excited to have Duskya back as a main character again! Although, when the story opens up, I was shocked to find that she was no longer just a youngling or a mother of 5 year old Carryn and baby Darryn. She's a grandma! The story though, is a story within a story. Duskya tells her grandchildren a story from back when Carryn and Darryn were young teenagers.
2: One bit I found extremely interesting was that Carryn pointed out the difference between want and need. I think that is an element missing in a lot of Children/MG lit. I also liked how discontent led to wrong choices.
3: Honestly, this whole series has had several incredible redemption arcs, so to speak. People that you want to dislike but eventually get their head on straight. I like that about them. The power of forgiveness and the negative consequences of bitterness, hate, and anger.
4: Do you know that feeling when the book has gotten so almost tense that you can hardly keep reading. You want everything to happen and you can't hardly wait at all. When I get like that I have to take a minute and back away. I did that a couple of times with this book. The plot was extremely captivating.
5: I am a sucker for good endings, and this book (like the others) was no exception. I think I squeaked. I do that sometimes when a book ends just right.
