The Heir of Bluescale is a wonderful YA book for those looking for a new adventure and loves dragons. This is a well written story by Ms Duffin for her first published book and I enjoyed my stay in the world she created and I am looking forward to the second book in this new series to come out. I have already started to fall in love and dislike of the some of our main characters and I'm looking forward to seeing them get fleshed out even more as the series continues. Zane is our main hero, the prince and future king of the Blackskin dragons, Lavender his fiancé from the Greenwing dragons. Enter the last two Bluescale heirs that had been well hidden on Earth until they were betrayed. We have Paige and her younger brother Dean who are attacked from the moment they are magically summoned from Earth to Ethiolan and the key to saving their realm. There are seven kingdoms in the dragon realm and we'll meet several characters from these other kingdoms. Characters are well written and there is lots of action, intrigue and betrayal to engage the readers mind. I had a hard time putting the book down at bedtime and often took it with me when I left the house on errands. It does end with a bit of a cliffhanger to defiantly whet your appetite for more books in the series. The only thing I would have liked is a little glossary in the front of the book with some pronunciations and descriptions to help me acclimate to this new world. I really enjoyed this book and can recommend it for both Young Adult and older readers alike.
Kept me interested I couldn’t put it down!!! Great characters great plot I just wish I could find the second book !!! Well worth the read!
