Genre: Young Adult
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?
My Review: I first loved how Carrie used dragons rather than vampires and werewolves. The book kept me hooked, I kept reading until late into the night just to finish this book. overall I really enjoyed this book and everyone should give this book a shot. It's different from the usual paranormal books out there. Kay is a seventeen year old girl who loves to climb/hike and all that other dangerous out-doorsy stuff. On one lone hiking trip she she has an accident and is rescued by a young dragon called Artegal, this starts is a beautiful friendship that defies everything she has been taught. Can they really be held responsible for the last dragon/human war? Just as Kay begins to learn more, other people seem to have grown tired of the truce and events occur that threaten not only their growing friendship, but the rest of the world.
