Publisher's Summary

In Julie Kagawa's groundbreaking modern fantasy series, dragons walk among us in human form.
Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have becomestrong and cunning, and they're positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.
Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.
Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon's newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey - and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember's bravery, confidence, and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the order has ingrained in him - and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.

Could have been better

What did you like most about Talon?

It had three good strong sentral characters


Who was your favorite character and why?

Garret. I have a soft spot for the quiet, brooding type.


What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

The two men in particular really brought the male perspectives across well.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was emotional as all books of this genre are, but my main feeling was frustration because it was obvious how the story would go.


Any additional comments?

Julie Kagawa is a good writer. I discovered that when I read her Iron Fae series, which insidentally, I hope Audible gets soon. But it seems she's another Author who can't break away from the formula established by Stephanie Meyer of one girl being torn between two guys. If that doesn't bother you, then this book is great. For my part, much as I enjoyed it, I live for the day when Authors of this genre will do something original. Although I'll read the next book and probably enjoy it, it's depressing when you can already predict the story.
