I would give this book 4 for a review.


Annie and Lee were just children when a brutal revolution changed their world, giving everyone–even the lowborn–a chance to test into the governing class of dragonriders.

Now they are both rising stars in the new regime, despite backgrounds that couldn’t be more different. Annie’s lowborn family was executed by dragonfire, while Lee’s aristocratic family was murdered by revolutionaries. Growing up in the same orphanage forged their friendship, and seven years of training have made them rivals for the top position in the dragonriding fleet.

But everything changes when survivors from the old regime surface, bent on reclaiming the city.

With war on the horizon and his relationship with Annie changing fast, Lee must choose to kill the only family he has left or to betray everything he’s come to believe in. And Annie must decide whether to protect the boy she loves . . . or step up to be the champion her city needs.

From debut author Rosaria Munda comes a gripping adventure that calls into question which matters most: the family you were born into, or the one you’ve chosen.

My Thoughts:

I really loved this russian inspired dragon themed novel. This book was such a strong read. I really loved the duel POV in this story and loved how their realtionship developed throughout the novel, Lee and Annie realtionship was unique and was such a strength of the novel. I also found the structure of this book to be so fun. I also really loved the dragons in this novel and it was such a fun book to read. I thought the ending could have been more expanded one, but this book was such a strong political fantsay novel that I really enjoyed.
