I have never read a book about dragons before and I really enjoyed it a lot. I really liked the predator and pray concept of the book and the chemistry between Will and Jacinda. Tamara I just didn't really like her she seemed to only think about herself and what she wanted but I kind of felt sorry for her because of the way the pride treated her. I liked the mom but I didn't like that she wanted Jacinda's Draki to die so she could be "normal". This book was amazing and I'm dying to know what happens next!
