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.
I feel in love with Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series. It was magical and romantic and I hope to see much of the same from this series. I'll admit, I don't think I'll ever read a dragon book as awesome as the Jennifer Scales series by MaryJanice Davidson and Anthony Alongi, but I still have pretty high hopes for this series. (By the way, if you haven't read Jennifer Scales and the Ancient Furnace, you need to do yourself a favor and add it to your TBR pile, right now!)
In fact, just from the description we've been given, it seems that both books are very similar in some aspects. My guess is that since Ember can "infiltrate" society, they're some sort of "weredragon" or at the very least a type of shape-shifter and that's exactly what Jennifer is. Garret Sebastian, who is out to kill all the dragons, sound an awful lot like a "beaststalker" in the Jennifer Scales series, who are also out to kill mystical dragons.
Maybe the fact that it sounds so much like an old favorite is what is drawing me to it so much. I certainly hope that there is a distinct difference in the stories - I'd hate to have both a favorite author and favorite series ruined. But, hey, I guess we'll just have to see!
