This is one that I read to my daughter as our bedtime story. We thoroughly enjoyed the series and my daughter has refused to read anything but Harry Potter until she has the newest book. We just can't wait to see what's in store for the characters and with the last one leaving at a cliffhanger my daughter has enjoyed guessing what will happen next.
Wow, what a great first-hand account of the series! I'm glad to hear someone else has enjoyed it!

I thought I am not a fan of fantasy books, but then I was proven wrong by my most recent read. And as if by fate, this title caught my eye, and here I am wondering how I could have a free copy of this book if there's any. I'd love to witness with my imagination the exploits of our shape-shifting heroine.
Thanks for this review!

Maybe keep checking to see if it's open for more reviews, then you could review it and get your copy!

I like that the story takes place in another universe and involves dragons. It is an interesting mix. The cover and the title are cool too. I would have to read the first book, though. Thanks for the review!

So Lara is a dragon. Interesting! The plot sounds quite exciting, being Lara a shapeshifter, but the powerful people in her world hating the dragons at that time. Thanks for including some of the magical objects used in the story. They really pull me into the story. I really appreciate your review!

I actually like the scenes surrounding the life of vampires even though I'm yet to believe that such creatures actually exist.

I haven’t heard of this series until now. It sounds amazing! If the first book is anything like your review of the second book, then I’ll be hooked for sure! This is definitely my kind of genre.
