"this was a very special read"
There is a border and one side there is the modern world. A
world full of homecoming dances, internet and TV. On the
other side there are ancient monsters that the humans fear.
Dragons are just over the border and Kay Wyatt knows she is
breaking the law by rock climbing near so close to the place
her parents both work so hard to keep from anyone crossing.
However at seventeen, Kay wants some adventure and doesn't
want to follow the rules.
Her adventure isn't the start of things to come but it may
have something to do with it. The dragons have been quiet
for sixty years and now there is smoke in the air. Can Kay
and her dragon friend help stop a war starting between the
humans and dragons? Or has the war already begun?
I absolutely love Carrie Vaughn's Kitty the Werewolf series
and when I heard she was bringing out a YA novel I was
intrigued. When I read that this was about dragons I
couldn't stop myself from pre-ordering Voices of Dragons. A
YA with Dragons written by one of my favourite authors is
something I couldn't miss.
What can I say expect absolutely amazing! This debut in the
Young Adult area is breathtaking and I expect all Kitty fans
will love this as much as the teenagers it is aimed at will.
The story doesn't mess around and gets straight into things.
Kay is a wonderful strong character and I immediately liked
her. The plot was nail-bitingly good and I felt like I was
there with Kay experiencing everything she was.
The dragon aspect of this was a big seller for me but I even
if you don't really like dragons you are going to love this.
I hope there will be more and if the ending was anything to
go by it looks like this is only the beginning. I openly
welcome any more dragon stories this author wants to share
with us because this was a very special read and I can't
wait for more.
