Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up–In this preapocalyptic time-travel adventure, 16-year-old Trinity Foxx has to determine which twin from the future is lying to her, and what she should do with the dragon egg her absentminded grandfather went bankrupt to purchase. That's hard to do, though, when one twin, Connor, shows her a future world destroyed by dragon fire that can be prevented if she folllows his instructions. The other twin, Caleb, tries to convince her that dragons are harmless and that the hatchling she's bonded with will help save the world. In fact, in that future, Trinity founded an organization to protect dragons from murderous humans. Trinity also struggles with her attraction to both boys, trauma from her mother's suicide two Christmases ago, and her burgeoning feelings of responsibility for the dragon she helped rescue. The fantastical elements of this novel could be more well fleshed out (and slightly more plausible, especially with regard to the Nether, supposedly the collective unconscious of all dragons), and the suspenseful climax could be paced better, but the story is exciting and original enough to whet readers' appetites for the sequel. The writing style is not overly complex, making this appropriate for a diverse range of adolescent readers. This is a light, fun, unique take on apocalypse fiction, lacking the depth of other titles but thoroughly enjoyable.–Kyle Lukoff, Corlears School, New York Cityα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

When 16-year-old Trinity Foxx’s grandfather brings a dragon egg back for the family museum, he sets off a series of events that make Trinity believe she is destined to follow her mother into madness and suicide. Twin soldiers representing opposing factions from the future, Caleb the Dracken and Connor the Dragon Hunter, both show up in her world, each trying to convince her that she is the linchpin on which the future turns. The plot is highly reminiscent of the Terminator movies—which Mancusi references tongue in cheek in several places—but with bonus dragon bonding and the requisite teen love triangle. Flashbacks and alternating points of view from Trinity, Caleb, and Connor keep the action moving, and several twists at the end prevent the story from feeling cheesy. Each character is flawed and human, forced to deal with the enormity of the impossible decisions they must make. There is no true resolution; instead, Mancusi leaves the ending wide-open for the next book in this planned series. Grades 7-10. --Charli Osborne
