I haven't read the first book in this series, Jennifer Scales and the Ancient Furnace, so it took me a chapter or two to familiarize myself with the world. After that, though, it was a fast-moving, action-packed story.In the story world, there are three supernatural races: beaststalkers, weredragons, and werachnids (were-spiders, etc.), in addition to ordinary humans, and the three races are enemies. Jennifer, however, is both a beaststalker and a weredragon, putting her right in the middle.She's up against enmity and prejudices from both sides, and a half-brother who's weredragon/werachnid, who's just shown up wanting revenge for being stuck in what would be called on Angel a hell dimension.The characters are well-developed and sympathetic, and there are no easy answers. I'll be looking for the first book.

This book is great. I thought it was better than "The Ancient" Furnace. Jennifer has come to terms with her identity as a dragon and is now facing some of her beaststalker identity. Soon everything is twisted around, when her half-brother searches her family out for revenge. People actually die, and the action doesn't stop. There are times where you don't really know who is on Jennifer's side and who is against her. Jennifer is defanitly growing up and she faces quite a bit more than most girls her age. She does it with wit, but she never loses the fact that she is just a teenager. As far a YA lit, this is truly as good as anything out there (better, much, than the all acclaimed Twilight) and it keeps its place in adult paranormal as well.

This book is okay. I am still having a hard time getting into them. I think there is too much science fiction in these books and not enough humor to really interest me. But I have the next book in the series to read, and I'm going to dive into it now.

This series is amazing!!! I recently finished the series, and I loved every word of it. I loved how I would get lost in the books, and feel like I was one of the characters in the story. How the author came up with this idea, I'd love to know. Read these books if you love fantasy of if you need a good book to read.

This one was not as good as the first, but I will continue to read the series. It just dragged a little bit for me.

I read this one right after the first in the series. It explains many things and I really enjoyed it. You do have to get past the whole turning into a dragon thing. Once you are there it is a fun ride.
