From the limitless imagination of New York Times bestselling author Julie Kagawa comes the next thrilling novel in The Talon Saga.

Forced to choose between becoming an assassin for the dragon organization Talon and being hunted forever as an outcast, Ember Hill now stands with Riley and his band of rogue dragons. She's lost contact with her twin brother, Dante, a Talon devotee, as well as Garret, the former enemy soldier who challenged her beliefs about her human side.

As Ember and Riley hide and regroup to fight another day, Garret journeys alone to the United Kingdom, birthplace of the ancient and secret Order of St. George, to spy on his former brothers and uncover deadly and shocking secrets--secrets that will shake the foundations of dragons and dragonslayers alike and place them all in imminent danger as Talon's new order rises.

I thought this was the last book in the series. I was wrong. This book was boring and drawn out. What I don't get is how Ember loves Garrett and Riley? She is a dragon who can turn into a human. But the book makes them seem like separate beings. If Riley is her dragon soul mate shouldn't she pick him? The other series by this author were really good. She needs to end this series and start something new.

This has been my least favorite series from Julie Kagawa (Is it the TALKING dragons? I think it's the talking dragons), but fortunately, this book was a nice improvement over the first two of the Talon series. It doesn't have the dark grittiness of the Blood of Eden series, and it doesn't have the fantastically creepy qualities of the Iron Fey books. It does, however, have dragons (Cool!) (HUH???)

This book is more violent than the first two, the stakes are raised in the conflict between Talon and the Order, the circle surrounding all of the warring entities is tightening, and Ember makes a big decision - all good stuff. Now, if we could just figure out how to silence the dragons in the next book...

I'd always wondered what the monster would do if its prey suddenly turned into a winged, scaly, sharp-toothed monster itself. Probably the reason that there were no dragons starring in horror movies - the real monster wouldn't be quite as scary in comparison.
