This book has a fun premise, shape shifting dragons called wyverns from another world were exiled to Earth long ago and now live among humans hoarding gold. Sky‘s family is in turmoil after her mother disappeared during a heist gone wrong, and she is determined to learn the truth and redeem her family name. Yet, the world building lacked depth and I wanted more complexity in the plot and character relationships.

#YA #TRS2019

Daisey I classified this book as YA, but the writing style, family dynamic, and romance make me think it is intended for the crossover between #middlegrade and YA. I wonder if this might be the reasoning for what I consider lack of complexity. It is a fun read, and I think younger readers who have not read as much classic fantasy may appreciate it more than I did. 4w

The last week has been pretty busy, but this morning is quiet and I‘m fitting in a chapter or two of this were-dragon story before church.

JazzFeathers Did you seriously say were-dragons? 😲 4w
Daisey @JazzFeathers Yes, although they no longer have the capability to actually change form to dragons. They do still breathe fire and hoard gold. 4w
JazzFeathers @Daisey l am hooked! 4w
Daisey @JazzFeathers Review is posted. My earlier comments were during the first half, and I finished reading it last night. It was a fun story but not nearly complex enough to satisfy me. As it was YA, I pretty much just ignored the way too simplistic high school romance. I can‘t say I would actually recommend it to an adult reader of fantasy. 4w
JazzFeathers @Daisey Pity 😟 The premise was awesome. 4w

I keep forgetting to do this. My December #fairyloot box. This one includes an Advanced Reader of The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson. And I excited for the reading journal which I need to update!

This book was boring and the sentences were bland and choppy

I liked this. It‘s not too often I see a book about heists and dragons in the same story. I flew right through the last half of this because I couldn‘t stop myself. I like the focus on family this book has.

The #december #fairyloot #unboxing.
I skipped October & November and then returned to December. I like the ARC (my first one!), the booksleave, the reading journal and the necklace, but the other book looks so uninspiring and bland 😕.

I told myself I wasn‘t going to read ahead this time, and I‘d actually read FairyLoot‘s book with their new book club; fast forward to 20 minutes later as I fail for the third month in a row🙈 Somehow these books are the perfect mood read every month! Oh well😋📖 #fairyloot #currentread #dragons

Bookcation74 I ❤️ that bookmark! 13mo
Cailey_Mac @Bookcation74 thanks! It‘s FairyLoot‘s monthly bookmark for December 13mo
