Voice of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn Review
On one side of the border lies the modern world: the internet, homecoming dances, cell phones. On the other side dwell the ancient monsters who spark humanity's deepest fears: dragons. Seventeen-year-old Kay Wyatt knows she's breaking the law by rock climbing near the border, but she'd rather have an adventure than follow the rules. When the dragon Artegal unexpectedly saves her life, the rules are abruptly shattered, and a secret friendship grows between them. But suspicion and terror are the legacy of human and dragon interactions, and the fragile truce that has maintained peace between the species is unraveling. As tensions mount and battles begin, Kay and Artegal are caught in the middle. Can their friendship change the course of a war?
This book was kind of slow paced which was really disappointing. It started to pick up at the end but I can't really say that I was happy with it. The story was just starting to get good when it ended. I absolutely loved the dragons in the story but everything else seemed to fall short. Also, the story ended in a terrible cliffhanger and there isn't a hint of a sequel, and having a book end in a cliff hanger without the promise of a sequel really got me angry. The story line was extremely interesting and it still kept me reading even when the writing was a little dull. I can't say I would recommend this book to anyone but the story really was interesting. I would give this book three out of five stars.
