I liked this series because it is something different. Usually I read a lot of vampire and witch books. This was all about dragons! Or really I should say draki. They are human-looking creatures that can manifest into draki. It was difficult to imagine at first because I kept wanting to picture a huge dragon like Smaug in the Hobbit. Nope. Draki are a lot smaller and they keep a lot of their human appearances. I like that each draki is a "type" of draki and has a special talent. Like the main character, Jacinda. She is a fire-breather. Very rare amongst her pride. So rare she is the only one. Her sister is a shader, she has the ability to create a mist that turns humans away and can make them forget where they were. It was fascinating learning about the different types of draki. I wish there would have been more of an in-depth look at the types.
I really do love the series but the way this last book was written, I feel like she could have written so much more. The book ended in a way that gave closure but I felt like it happened all too fast. I will definitely have to check out other Sophie Jordan books.
