Overview

Scales is geared toward the 14 to 26 year old female readership, but as a fantasy will appeal to the broader audience. Non-violent, entertaining, with a hint of romance. It is a page turner, with no sagging middle.

Vivian Blue has always been a little different. But she had no idea how different, until Hatch Lancaster, Dragonkind's bad boy, enters her life on a secret mission. Within a short time, Hatch is her boss, her friend, and a man who haunts her heart and her dreams. And everything Blue has known and believed turns out to be a lie.

Surrounded by subterfuge and an unidentified danger, Blue is left with Hatch as her only protection and defense. But as she turns more and more to Hatch, the danger seems to come more from the man himself than from the mysterious activities in Dragonkind.

While the head dragon of one clan is trying to form a Joint Council to resolve the enmity between Dragonkind, Hatch is torn between his growing attraction for Blue, his responsibilities to the revered clan leader, and loyalty to his homeland of Concord. Blue fears she'll never fit into his world. She must choose between him and the place she's always called home.

    Fantasy Young Adult a MUST READ

    Ever read a book and hoped it would never end? This is what Scales by Acacia Awai was for me. Right from the begining I was hooked. Scales is fast paced and a definite must read. I can’t wait to see what will happen with Hatch & Blue, I absolutely love them. Adore Dragonkind and the world she has created. Who would have thought dragons would pull me in, but oh boy did they ever !!!

    Fantasy MUST READ!!!

    Questions, questions, questions...and oh how wonderful to discover all the answers. Set in beautiful Hawaii, Vivienne Blue thinks she's just a normal island gal. She soon realizes just how wrong she is. Hatch Lancaster, our tall dark and handsome dragon, is sent to Maui on a mission where he meets Blue. He is shocked to learn that she has no idea of who or what she really is. Unaware that she is perhaps the most special dragon ever created. In that moment when their worlds collide, their lives and quite possibly the fate of all dragon kind could be changed forever. Awai completely bursts my preconceived notions of dragons in her book SCALES. Here, where dragon kind meets reality, dragons are a lot less lizard and whole lot more wonderful fantasy. Simply learning about Awai's take on dragon kind left me unable to put down this book! I loved reading about the growing passion between Hatch and Blue, and seeing how they deal with the constant questions and mysteries surrounding her and the world of dragons. The supporting cast that includes Blue's best friends Ducky, Kimo and Keahi, and Hatch's mother, brother and fellow dragons Kyle and Red have left me wanting more. I want to know everything Awai has to offer. I am definitely ready to jump on the SCALES ride. This book is a wonderful combination of fantasy, love story, mystery and surprise. Add all together and it is one great read. I highly recommend it and can't wait for the sequel.

    I should have read this sooner! I¿ve had this book for a whi

    I should have read this sooner! I’ve had this book for a while but I kept putting off reading it because I was so busy and also it’s not my preferred genre. I’m not much into romances and I’m picky about my fantasy/sci-fi/alternate reality kind of stories. Joss Whedon spoiled me that way I guess—too many writers and/or directors don’t live up to my standards any more.

    But this book has something uniquely special about it. For one thing, it’s set in Hawaii and the tropical sensuality of the place really adds a certain aura to the story that is enticing. Awai sure knows her home state. For another, whoever would have thought of Dragons like the ones Awai creates in her Scales series? Especially dragons like Hatch Lancaster! Completely unexpected and like nothing you’ve ever read before.

    At times I grew a little impatient with the love story between Hatch and Blue, but I blame that on my personal disinterest in romances in general. I’m a mystery/suspense gal so if things get too kissy, kissy I’m all “Get on with the story already.”

    Awai handles both romance and suspense with a fun and riveting flair that keeps you reading till the end. It’s good to know there are two more books coming in the series, because with an iceberg tip this entertaining, you just know you have to see what the whole glacier looks like. (Ach, iceberg metaphors about a book set in Hawaii—what am I thinking?!)

    I can say this book is one of the best books i have read. Finall

    I can say this book is one of the best books i have read. Finally a book series thats similar to twilight. Theres no other book series out there that can be another twilight except this one. Once i started reading i couldn't put the book down. I even teared happiness and sadness and its very very hard for me to tear when reading a book. I just wish the second book was out already! can't wait!!

    With this tale set in Hawaii, Acacia Awai carries us from one mystery to another to yet another as the dragon hero of (Hatch Lancaster) and human, Vivian Blue, seek to unscramble the powers that draw them together yet threaten their union. Creative, suspenseful, and often fun, this Romeo and Juliet story of enemy dragon camps explores the complex passions of love and hate triggered by crossing forbidden barriers, a battle that takes place unseen by the human world that surrounds them. As a story that pits individual love against group loyalty, SCALES is a read that should appeal to audiences beyond the fantasy that is its center.
