Overview

Under no circumstances are girls EVER to be allowed anywhere near dragons.  THE PENALTY FOR ANY GIRL CAUGHT BREAKING THE FIRST LAW IS DEATH.  

Kira is twelve, and strong willed. The daughter of a retired dragon knight, she yearns for adventure and dreams of following in her father's footsteps astride her own magnificent mount. But this can never happen. According to the 'stupid laws' of the kingdom, she must be married by thirteen.

Kira hates it, but being a girl she has no choice. Then Lord Dorcon arrives, in a whirl of destruction and fire and Kira knows the real fight is just beginning. To stand a chance of seeing her family again, and to protect the life of her younger sister, she will need every bit of willpower she can find. Let the battle commence.

Meet the Author

Kate O'Hearn was raised in the heart of New York City. Throughout her life, she has always had an active and vivid imagination. As a child walking down 5th Avenue, she would envision herself soaring among the city's canyons on the back of a wild dragon. While in Florida, looking over the sea, she could imagine living amongst the whales and breaching in the heavy swells. At night, a star studded sky was yet another playground. These dreams and ideas never faded. Instead they grew until they spilled over into the books she loves to write. Kate's first book, Shadow of the Dragon: Kira, won the 1066 Schools' Book Award.

Very inspirational for all girls, and I personally love dragon novels. This series is among my favorites, but I especially love the cliffhanger at the end and the next book. I highly recommend it. This book is amazing.
