Talon by Julie Kagawa

I finished this audiobook today and it was pretty great. It was a pretty interesting read and I loved that the dragons were able to hide in human form. It was exciting and it kept me interested. There were some pretty good characters in the book, but Ember and Dante both annoyed me at times. I also wanted to punch Dante in the face a million times. I still want to punch him in the face when I think about the book. I am really curious as to how this is all going to play out. It ended at a point that makes you want to know more. I am really excited that the second book; Rogue was released today! Now I just need to buy it ASAP or cross my fingers that the library gets the audiobook ASAP! 🙂

Goodreads Description: 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 become strong 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.

  6. Ashley I went to grab this at my local library the other day but I stopped myself, I’m going to have to put myself on a library ban as well as a shopping ban and requesting ARC ban! I love Julie Kagawa not to mention there seems to be a character in Rogue called Riley which is my son’s name, I only know as I’ve got the “Team Riley” graphics LOL

    I really want to get into Audiobooks as well, do you have any recs on which sites to purchase it from?

    • I actually don’t purchase audiobooks. I can’t ever justify spending so much on an audiobook when I can get multiple e-books or physical books for the same price! I use my library to get audiobooks, since it’s free! I use my local library with an app called OverDrive. It sends the audiobooks straight to the app. 🙂 You should definitely check it out and see if your library does this too! I think a lot of them do.
