I LOVED it. It was like nothing I've read. The characters were well developed and the plot was good and seemed original. God! I just want to read the next book!!!!!!!

*SPOILERS*

And the ending!!! Omg. I mean, what will save Aspen? How will she get out of that situation? My theories: 1. She'll shout out to Obsidian, discovering some power she never had, and he'll hear her and save her. 2. Realizing her situation, she'll refuse to die, and this fury will fuel a change in her, this refusal to die without a fight... and she'll become a Dragon. That would be cool :) I mean, who knows what kind of ancestry she has? Especially since she attracted the attentions of the dragon king. I mean, Obsidian will be just in time to see the change. Maybe her link to Obsidian and the mysterious extra words in her tattoo created a rare link between her and Sid, allowing her to somehow become a Dragon herself. If this happens she might even get to be experience the Dragon queen trials at some point!! ... I mean this outcome would save them both from death. 3. (Worst outcome, might stop reading the book if it goes this way) Aspen dies, leaving Sid to mourn forever or somehow moving on and shifting the main characters. God, I would hate it if this happens. I want her to be saved, I don't want a martyr. It would be a senseless death. And I really like Sid and Aspen. Don't ruin their eternal love.
I kinda hope I'm wrong with my predictions and that Loth finds some other kick-ass way for Aspen to survive, because I'd be half disappointed if I guessed completely right :)

This is such a fun, fast YA urban fantasy read! Loth keeps the plot moving with an underlying mystery, but the Aspen/Sid love story is definitely at the heart of the book. I love the concept of humans and dragons living alongside each other, albeit uneasily. This first book of the series definitely feels like a spark waiting to explode in future books. (And without being too spoilery, I will say that you will definitely want the next book ASAP when you finish this one. So if you like all your books to be completely standalone, the ending may frustrate you a bit. You've been warned! lol)

First of all thanks to Kimberly for giving me the opportunity to read/review this book in advance in exchange for an honest review. It's not every day that someone says, "I've got this YA book about dragons that I'd like you to review." (Which is really a shame when you think about it.) I'm a Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre junkie and I was very happy to accept the offer to read this book.

Not normally a fan of the prologue, I went into this book with hesitation. But I feel like the prologue was handled well and did a great deal to introduce the reader to a modern world that just happens to have dragons in it. It created questions immediately and made me want to dive right in.

It took me a few chapters to get into the story. I immediately enjoyed the POV characters of Aspen and Obsidian, but I had trouble reconciling how they were going to connect, but once they did, that's where the magic happened.

Aspen is brave and spunky and has a unique voice. There are times when she's a bit unlikable, but Loth does a great job of taking Aspen's bristly personality and fusing it with sincerity, which makes the reader root for her even when she's being a bit of a pain. Many times, I found myself thinking, "Are you kidding me Aspen?" and that is what gives the story the perfect amount of tension and conflict. I had to keep reading!

Obsidian is dreamy. He's quintessential book boyfriend material. He's hot and kind and doing his best to cope with insane (SPOILER FREE) pressure. I really connected to his character and feel like he's completely fleshed out and totally wonderful. Obsidian is definitely the strength of this book, in my opinion.

This was certainly different in urban fantasy that I'm used to; also known as my first dragon book. I certainly like the idea of Aspen being an adrenaline junky, and that having to do with her obsession with dragons. I, however, cannot fathom why anyone would find dragons creepy or disgusting; sadly dragons don't exist. Anyway, we follow Sid and Aspen on his journey of wooing her. I found their romance a little too easy and Aspen's reaction to Tori didn't seem like it mattered at all. There was predictability with the villain and the ending of the book, which is a cliffhanger. I see the next one is about to be released in the next few weeks, but I am uncertain if I will follow the story any further. Over all, this is a solid 3.5 star book and is a quick, easy read. The story isn't so bad, but I don't feel like it's been fleshed out enough for me to give it a higher rating.

This is the first book in the Dragon Kings Series. I loved this book. I loved the story line and the characters. I loved the main characters and the support characters. I loved how much depth the author has put into her characters and story line. This is a young adult story and does end in a cliffhanger. That being said this is a fantastic read, and I can’t wait for the next book. I received this free book in exchange for an honest review.

I loved how complex Aspen is. I loved how she loves all things dragons; talk’s constantly about dragons and will do anything to save them. I love how she becomes bonded to the black dragon Obsidian. I loved that she has been damaged by her past and that it has affected how she interacts with other boys that she is attracted to. I loved that she no longer trusts her instincts and won’t give Sid a chance at all and flat out tells him that he has no chance of being her anything, not a friend and definitely not a boyfriend especially not with her BFF calling dibs on him. I did think it was kind of creepy that her BFF keeps changing herself to look more like Aspen, changing her hair color and style, getting colored contacts. Seems more like she doesn’t want to be Aspen’s friend as much as she wants to be Aspen. I loved how adventurous Aspen is. I loved how she likes to skydive, rock climb and is always hiking to new places to find dragons that she can take pictures of. I loved the interaction between Obsidian and Aspen and how Obsidian helps her overcome her issues with Sid and gets her to give him a chance. Of course, Aspen doesn’t know that Sid and Obsidian are one and the same.
