Contemporary Young Adult Paranormal, Romantic Elements

West Texas

Trinity is sure she is going crazy when she first hears a voice asking her not to leave them. It wouldn’t surprise her if she was losing it as her grandfather is convinced that he brought a genuine dragon egg to their dusty little West Texas town.

Connor has come from a scorched future that created by dragonfire. He has a mission. He has to find the girl and destroy the egg so he can save the world.

Caleb is completely different from his twin brother, Connor.  He is also everything Connor hates in that he is cocky, undisciplined and completely obsessed with saving dragons.

Trinity isn’t sure which brother to believe. Her only clue is the voice in her head that is a dragon that will not be tamed.

This is the beginning of an amazing trilogy that takes readers on a roller coaster ride right from the very beginning. It will also have readers wishing they could find their own dragon egg.  The characters are well written and move the story along at a very fast pace.  It also ends with a little cliffhanger that will have reader reaching for the next book in the trilogy just to see what will happen next. The story will also stay with readers long after they have closed the cover of the book.  This is a book worth checking out and enjoying.

I give this one 5 red roses
