A highly original base idea. The writing style had a nice flow to it and didn't stop up too much which is often a problem for me with most teen reads. I didn't really feel attached to any of the characters but that could be because I don't have anything in common with them. The only real problem I had with this book was the sexual references in every other chapter. I usually like to recommend good books over to my little sister and would very much have liked to give her this one, but couldn't because of the recurring sexual references. Would not recommend to anyone under 14.

This book was great!!!!! It was very emotional and unforgettable!!!! What really stood out to me was that it was different from any of the books that i have ever read, since most authors are on werewolves and vampires. This unique twist to the story of dragons and humans reallyu made me anxious to keep reading! I could not put the book down! The characters are so real and thats probably why i felt a connection to them. I cried when they cried and i laughed at their silliness. I felt confused when they felt confused. It was a great read and i would recommend it to everyone!!!!

The story is completely enthralling and realistic from the beginning to the end. Our protagonist is a female who is far too interested in the "other side of the story" and befriends a dragon, just as most descriptions of this book explain. However, the story is something different than most dragon novels I've read in the past. So many things are going on, but are never too hard to keep track of. The dragon, Artegal is a fun character and becomes even more so when the book progresses. My only gripe is that the book ends sort of abruptly and leaves you wanting more to read. I have already recommended this book to multiple friends, two of whom have already finished reading it and enjoyed it thoroughly. This is definitely a book worth buying that can be read multiple times, as it's an easy, realistic read.

Seventeen-year-old Kay enjoys hiking, climbing, talking on her cell phone, and spending time with a dragon. Yes, a dragon. In Vaughn's brilliant combination of modern day convenience and old world fantasy, VOICES OF DRAGONS pulls the reader into a believable tale of one girl and a dragon against the evil machinations of an intolerant government. Though I guessed where the story was going, I still enjoyed the journey. I had no trouble believing dragons and cell phones could exist together and completely fell in love with the imagination Vaughn displayed in this novel. However, I did have one huge problem - the ending. It ended without resolution. Nothing was certain, things were on shaky ground, and the characters were about to begin a whole new adventure I wasn't even sure would work. I wanted more. This could have been the intention all along to set up for a sequel, but it made me angry, frustrated, and I felt cheated to be left with no certainties at the end. Would they be accepted? Would there be war? Had they fixed anything? I have no idea! Will I read the next book? You bet! I have to know what happened, but I feel Vaughn should have given us a better ending by at least resolving (for certain) one of the major issues left hanging at the end of this book.

What an amazing story. An absolutely terrific read from beginning to end. The characters are crafted with such precision and are so believable that the reader gets caught up in the story very quickly. And before you know it, you are right there beside the main character, living her experiences, feeling her fears, doubts and confusion but also sharing her joy and triumph. This is definitely one of those stories you get so caught up in, you just can't stand to see it come to an end. I hope author Carrie Vaughn has lots of sequels planned, because I can't wait.

I thought this book was amazing. A lot of books take a while to kick off and get to the good stuff. This books action starts in the first chapter. I couldn't put it down. I finished it in 2 school nights. I recommended it to my cousin and she loved it too. Kay is a very relatable character that really draws in the reader. My only gripe about this book was the ending. It ended so suddenly. I HOPE there is a sequel to it, because the last sentence leaves us in dangling mid-air. Kay and her dragon friend, Artegal are trying to stop a war. In the end of the book, however, they haven't ended the war, so I hope this book has a part 2. I checked the author's website to see if there is a part 2 in progress but I haven't found anything. If anyone knows differently, please let me know :)

Voices of Dragons is perfect if you're just looking for something fun to read. Pros: It has a good story line. The characters are unique and true to themselves throughout the entire story. The book is very fast paced. There's never really a point where it's dull or slow. Cons: The plot is light and never gets very complex. The reader never really gets to know many of the characters too well. The reader loses track of time a little bit because there are points where the narration skips a few months. I loved this novel because I could really relate to Kay's personality and problems. She's athletic and confident in her rock climbing, but at the same time, shy and self-conscious in her social skills. I really liked how Vaughn tied in the realistic high school problems with the fictional dragon problems.

Voices of Dragons Vaughn, Carrie After the dragons erupted back into our world, and World War II was at an end. The world changes after a ferocious battle that made the US loose part of the western continent to the ferocious beast, a young girl finds out a secret. Dragons can talk, humans and dragons used to be friends. What she does with this knowledge is amazing, and the adventures she puts herself through outshine the teenage pranks that she is going through, out shines the boy she is falling in love with, out shines the friendships she has, and the pressures of being a young girl. She has to dare herself to do the impossible and find a way to bring an end to the war that has tragic losses already counting on both sides. This is a girl power book, showing that remaining faithful in you is the strongest thing a person can do. A great book to show children that peer pressure is not the only driving force in the world.

I read a LOT OF BOOKS....(I even read can labels...) I was pleasantly surprised , I really wasn't sure exactly what I was going to be reading , however Ms.Vaughn went on an entirely different trip to fantasy land, departing from her usual and creating more than enough stimulus to keep me locked in without loosing me... It had the right "stuff" to continue my interest till the end,making me anxious fo the next book! I do have to say , the sex stuff is really unnecessary, Kay is an adventurer, ....I identified with her as such....I stopped going on adventures at age 60 when I broke my back, and do at times live vicariously thru characters such as Kay....keep up with with your writing , so I can have places to explore and situations to get into....Thank you Carrie

The people in this book are really the scum of the earth. I only regret the dragons disn't destroy them all.

I thought the book was really awesome! But I think it should have a second book. It kinda just was left hangin'. In a good way I really frustrated when that was the ending. Still love it though!
