Adrienne Woods Û 9 Summary

Firebolt The Dragonian #1 Free download Ï E-book, or Kindle E-pub Dragons Right Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales and sixteen year old Elena Watkins was no differentUntil the night a fairy tale killed her fatherNow Elena’s I liked itThe story is entertaining It has some elements that reminisce of Harry Potter although in no way this book is close to that level and the 1986 movie Labyrinth which incidentally I loved as a child The story did get my attention so I intent to keep reading this series There is a lack of character development as well as relationship developments The way the friendships go here is not satisfactory or complete enough Things just seem to be with no built up I believe time should have been dedicated to making these relationships really work and I hope that the second book expands on that The romance is a joke The relationship between Lucien and Elena is instant love I don t know how that happened or why her feelings turned so deep all of a sudden when we haven t seen any depth between the two of them whatsoever Romance is an important part on books for me so much so that I don t usually read YA or UF Fantasy books if they don t have romance in them This book might as well have no romance at all based on its utter lack of fulfillment and elaboration To me it seemed forced and artificial not to say completely unbelievable Besides I have to say that I much would have rather have the romance be between Elena and the brooding but mysterious Blake than between Elena and the loyal predictable and boring Lucien We ll see how this goes in the second installment Wrapping up the story is entertaining but lacking in personal and interpersonal unfolding Starlight The Dragonian 5
