OMG, I finally read this book and LOVED IT :D It was truly amazing. I was a fantastic read and I devoured this book in a less than a day! It was that awesome :)
I really loved the whole concept of this book! Dragon shifters :) AMAZING! It was something so different. I loved the vivid description the author gives of the dragons! I could just picture it in my mind. And the characters were amazing!
I really liked Jacinda. I know a lot of people said she was annoying and whinny, but with me that wasn't the case. I felt she showed real emotions and I could understand and sympathize what she was going through. I mean come on, put yourself in her shoes and see how she felt.
And Will was just amazing :) The kind of guy I would love to date, you know, beside the hunting! lol I love the chemistry between the two. It was heartfelt and I could really see their connection.
Jacinda's sister was a little selfish to many. I understood what she went through, but to me she couldn't see that Jacinda was going through the exact same thing. So how couldn't she relate? IDK
I really like the action, suspense, and secrecy of this book. That's what made it so amazing! I now need to get my hands on book 2 effective immediately!!!!
I definitely recommend this book! It was an amazing read and enjoyed it so much :)
