Synopsis (from Goodreads): 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 seriously love the cover of this book. It’d be cool if it was actually textured like scales…I haven’t read any of Julie Kagawa’s books, but I’d definitely read this one 😀
YOU HAVEN’T READ JULIE KAGAWA!?!?
Haha, just kidding, but seriously, though. She is amazing.
And YES! I hadn’t thought about that, but it would be amazing if the cover was like actualy scales.
We need to find someone who can make that happen.
I’m really excited for this one too, but mostly because of DRAGONS. They’re cool!! My favourite dragon book is Seraphina, but I’m totally reading Eon this month, I think, as part of a reading challenge. 😉 I so so so want to try Talon though!!!
I’ve been meaning to read Seraphina for years! I had it borrowed out from the library, but it was one of the few books I have actually returned without reading.

That’s one I am looking forward to as well. I love the cover too. I think I’ll have to buy it though instead of borrowing it from the library so I don’t have to worry about late fees with the other books I read for blogging. Hope you enjoy it!
