    Hoooooo boy. It's not often I find a book that I hate so much I finish reading it. Not that it was very long or a very challenging read because the writing is horrific. You know why I finished it? Because of this: "Heat uncoiled deep in my belly, bringing a pressure with it that had my legs throbbing. What the hell was going on with my lady parts?"THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION TO ASK YOURSELF.It's so bad, guys, so hysterically bad that I had to superim...

    I don't know what everyone else was reading but this is the worst book I've read last year.

    Not the best but not the worst urban fantasy I’ve read. It’s got dragons and druids, orphans and the chosen one. It’s well written but the main character Sloane isn’t the easiest to connect to.

    Oh, this was SO BAD. None of the world building makes sense, the writing could use a really determined editor and ugh, Sloane was a horrible character. Glad I'm done.

    Leia Stone...you just keep proving to me why you are my favourite. Such a easy read, full of action, adventure and romance. I feel in love with Sloane the moment she opened her mouth. The sassy attitude that made me laugh out loud. Logan...can I keep him please? Highly recommend. All sales are going towards building an orphanage in India. Just shows how beautiful Leia really is.

    the heroine is a little hard to love. okay a lot hard. but the concept and the fact that i'm a sucker for dragon shifters kept me interested. it felt all over the place and i kinda wanted sophie to actually punch sloanes face in. tbh even her name is the annoying type. i guess ive been spoiled with kick arse females in the past - some i believe by this author that i feel disappointed. it felt cut short as well... like rather than a full novel end...

    Great readThis book had a different take on an old theme. I really started to take to the characters and being a big fan of stories with dragons I'm moving straight on to book two to get to know them more. Features action, love and pulled on my heart strings what more could a fan of fantasy ask for? Well this tale gives you more druids, shifters and the skyborne just to name a few things.

    3,5 starsOh my what a great surprise...This book was nice... Was my first with dragon shifters and I like it...Sloan was a little stupid and childish but I can understand the scars of being so alone.The side characters where great and all pack very likeable...I'm trying not to spoil the story...Will read the next book...

    Partway through the book, I realized how much it was like City of Bones; there is a girl with a magical past she doesn't know about and is suddenly thrust into it without any prior warning. She has no father and has a magical mother that never told her anything of the supernatural world. The mother asked someone more powerful (or with the right powers) to seal her power away, and it needs to be resealed over time. She can't get her powers reseale...

    This is a truly gripping story from the first page. I liked this take on dragon’s and shifters very much. Looking forward to the next book.

    Everything Leia touches turns to gold! Another amazing first book. I don't know how she does it, but she is a storytelling genius. I get sucked in every time.

    This book had my attention from start to finish! I'm so excited for the next book and to see this story unfold!

    Read as an ARC in 24 hours because it was just that amazing!! Picking up this book will make you fall in love with Leia’s writing and make you want more. Thankfully she appeases us by continuing to write. Oh and sales from this book go to an orphanage in India; so you get an amazing read and get to help needy children! :)

    I'm a sucker for PNR dragon-shifter books so I picked this one up. Plus, I normally like the way this author writes. But while the story started out great, I found myself not really liking Sloane, the female MC. She just got on my nerves. As such, I didn't enjoy the book. Sorry.

    I loved this book! I couldn’t put it down and literally read it in one day. Such an engaging story with so much witty banter that kept me laughing out loud. Can not wait for the second book to be released. I need to know what happens!!

    Here ye be Dragons! Or at least dragon shifters! I'm no damsel in distress so I do love a strong lead female who speaks her mind but on the flip side I do like a gorgeous man who is willing to win said female (in short I love a good romance). Sloan is a pretty headstrong lead, although she's not dumb enough to turn away help when needed. Logan, though a bit hard-headed is a swoon-worthy guy who, like Sloan, can also turn into a dragon.The plot is...

    Amazing! By far my favorite book of Leia's so far! It kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to know what was going to happen. I fell in love with all the characters and felt invested in them. I don't think I can wait for the next one!

    Dragons and Druids and shifters, oh myThis introductory novel starts off in the middle of a battle. Sloane has the worst luck. Broke, living in her car, starving artist is supposed to be a joke not a reality. And then the Grand Canyon happens. One moment she's plummeting to her death and the next she's having a psychotic break. Because there's no way she's really a dragon, right? Rescued by a pack of shifters and a male dragon, things should be l...

    This book is a good example of why you should push through some books until the end. Now that I'm done I'm interested in reading the next. I wanna know what happens. For the first 1/3 of the book, I was planning to give it an extremely low rating. It comes across as very childish in the verbiage and the main characters inner thoughts. Stuff like, "having a half naked dragon shifter hold me while he made plans fir his pet kitten made my ovaries ac...

    3.7-4.2 stars. Nice start to the series. I'd like more depth to the characters but I enjoyed the storyline.
