I was really drawn into the writing style, which made this book a real page-turner. The whole idea of the shape-shifting dragons and the world they lived in felt unique to me. While the counsel sounded a lot like the Volturi from Twilight, this book has a lot of unique attributes of its own and is something I really felt I could get into. This is definitely *my* kind of book.
But I'm a big complainer, too. While I loved the characters and the writing style, I felt like Bryn's relationship with the Directorate was ignored quite a bit. I wanted to see her start a revolution. As much as she hated the Directorate, she didn't really think much about joining a revolution or anything. In fact, she was scared of the rebels in the forest. Given Bryn's character, I'd think she'd be jumping at the sound of danger.
I also would have liked to see this written in Bryn's perspective since we're in her head most of the time anyway. Additionally, I felt that "pushing" was creative, but it never did much for the story.
Honestly, there were some scenes and characters the book could have done without. I was pretty disappointed that the fight scene climax was all of one chapter. I would have liked to see that stretched out into something longer and more exciting.
I was also a bit disappointed that I didn't see much character development in Bryn. While I liked her character, I really would have liked to see her and Jaxon make up a little bit. There was definitely room for it, but by the end, Bryn was still calling him a jerk and threatening to throw fireballs at his head.
Complaints aside, this was a very compelling story with intriguing characters. There were lots of great things about it, particularly that it was tough to put down. I kept telling people, "I'm reading this really good book right now!" That's such a relief to say! I really enjoyed the world Chris Cannon has built, and I loved that her writing style helped push the story along nicely. I was ready to buy the next book in the series halfway through this book (which I did!). This is the type of book I feel I could read over and over despite my complaints above. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!
