To stand a chance of ever seeing her family again and to protect the life of her sister, Kira will need all her courage and willpower. Let the battle commence.... Download and start listening now!

    " One of the better girl-kicks-butt books that I have read. Who can resist a book about a 12 year old female outlaw/heroine, with dragons, dragon knights and an evil monarchy? This is one of my favorite fantasy books to date. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 12/20/2013

    " Great start to a new fantasy series. Strong characters torn apart from their family, evil king who hates girls, dragons - good and deadly - this series has great promise and the kids are going to love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 3/11/2013

    " This book was good, the only thing wrong with it is the lack of detail. Dragons are awesome, and she could've told us more what it was like to fly on one, etc! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hilary | 1/9/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 1/3/2013

    " Loved this book, can't wait to read the rest of the series. It is a preteen read though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie Brownfield | 11/20/2012

    " Many of my students and I enjoyed this book! The prophecy, the dragon, the girls as warriors, and the destruction of their home in the first chapter created compelling reading. In addition, it was easy to follow (some fantasy books are not)! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Rosemeyer | 6/24/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ezamoosh | 4/19/2012

    " The story was great. The idea, the plot, the places, the people were all great. But the storytelling was that of a new author, and that made it less enjoyable than it could've been, unfortunately. "

    " Great book one of the best ive ever read love the bit when she gets her own dragon. Lord dorcon is so evil and lasser commons sounded horrible. Really recommend it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hayley Jones | 7/9/2011

    " I liked the story but Kira annoyed me I don't know why she just did. I think it was at the beginning when she was going to be married off and she refused to when that was what happened to every girl and she seemed to think she should be different. other than that it was a good story. "
