Under no circumstances are girls ever allowed anywhere near dragons! The penalty for any girl caught breaking First Law is death!
“This exhilarating story captures the reader’s interest from the opening interaction between Kira and her parents to the breathless conclusion. The underlying theme that girls are capable of anything infuses the novel, and the heroine’s bravery and spunk will particularly appeal to older junior and high school female readers. Fortunately the wide-open ending leaves plenty of room for a sequel to this stellar first novel.” – Julie Watkins, VOYA, October, 2009
