Don’t leave me here... It starts with a whisper. At first Trinity thinks she’s going crazy. It wouldn’t be a big surprise—her grandpa firmly believes there’s a genuine dragon egg in their dusty little West Texas town. But this voice is real, and it’s begging for her protection. Even if no one else can hear it...
He’s come from a future scorched by dragonfire. His mission: Find the girl. Destroy the egg. Save the world.
He’s everything his twin brother Connor hates: cocky, undisciplined, and obsessed with saving dragons.
Trinity has no idea which brother to believe. All she has to go by is the voice in her head—a dragon that won’t be tamed.
Mari Mancusi brings us DRAGONS!!!! I love me some dragons, and now I really want one as a pet. 😛
I love that we have so many different perspectives. We are able to see the situation from different points of view. Each one is drastically different. You don’t really know who’s path is the right one. You can see why each person does the things they do, but you have doubts with how each one will play out. I won’t go into too much more detail because I don’t want anything to be spoilery.
Trinity has had to deal with a lot of extenuating circumstances. She’s has to be strong when it comes to everything, and it’s hard to remember she’s only a teenager. Trinity tries to be as strong as possible when it comes to the mess she finds herself in. The only thing I didn’t care for was the whole instant attraction thing. But I can understand why she feels those emotions. Connor is intense. He’s a strong character, that only wants to do what he thinks is right. He’s also kind of bossy. Caleb, on the other hand, is more of a free spirit. He takes things as they come, and wants to make Trinity understand that dragons aren’t as bad as some make them seem. Then there’s Emmy. She’s made of pure awesome.
There are quite a few plot twists. Some are predictable, but some aren’t. There are some action scenes, but in this book we basically get to learn who people are and some of the history. I definitely recommend this to lovers of dragons. I can’t wait to see what this trio faces in the future.
