I really enjoyed Firebolt and am looking forward to the next in series. What an interesting blend of medieval fantasy tempered with some urban fantasy. I had such fun reading this book.
So, the story…Elena is constantly on the move with her father seemingly running away from something. On one particular night, they are attacked by dragons! In the next minute Elena finds herself in another world without her father, who has been killed. Apparently Elena is special and there are great expectations for her potential so she is enrolled into the School of Dragonia. Here, she learns of magic, dragons and Dragonians amongst other things.
Now, bear in mind that Elena is just your seemingly normal run-of-the-mill average teenager, who is clumsy and only excels at one thing (which she doesn’t like), which is riddles. She is the opposite of what you’d expect from a heroine.
Surprisingly, her new world is very similar to our world in that it has cars, museums, shopping malls, modern technology, etc., but on an advanced level. But half of her new classmates are dragons in human form and…they have dragons in this world. Her school reminds me a bit of Hogwarts with a mixture of regular and magical subjects.
The characters are interesting and I enjoyed their interaction, i.e. Sweet Sammy, Prince Lucian, Flirty Brian, Brave Becky and, of course, the mysterious Blake.
I read this book quickly as I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very entertaining and well balanced.
Adrienne Woods created a whole new world for us to explore with an interesting back story to boot.
If you enjoy fantasy books with dragons, friendship and some romance, then you will enjoy this book.
