Let's talk covers. This cover is cool. It's interesting and not overwhelming and the concept isn't overdone. I'll say it now and I'll say it again, I ALWAYS judge a book by it's cover. So far as covers go, I give this 4/5 stars
Now the book. The meat. The story. I'm 40% done with this book and while the writing is really good, descriptive and visual, I'm afraid I have to stop for one simple reason: Too much swearing.
I can handle some language in my books, but my curiosity regarding the outcome of the story is outweighed by my discomfort.
Maybe I'll try to finish it later, meanwhile, I'm starting a new book.
Also, the POV switches are a little bit much, though I think POV changes tend to be that way, and all things considered LYNN does a fantastic job.
If swearing doesn't phase you and you like shape-shifter stories, you'll probably love this book. It's well-written and I just wish the language was a little toned down.
Disclaimer: I read an e-copy of this book. I hate reading e-copies in general so it's likely that had I been reading it in print, I would have 1- finished it and 2- liked it more.
This book shared some unfortunate parallels to Meyer's Twilight. That being said, I still think that YA would enjoy it. Adults who generally like YA....not so much. Jacinda is much more likable than Bella and Will actually has depth to his personality, but it's still Twilight with draki (dragons) instead of vampires and the female is the monster instead of the man. Love story between predator and prey....you know the drill. It's clean language, nice concept of people being dragons, and nothing age inappropriate for teens 14-18.
