Review: Flying Blind - Deborah Cooke

The next generation of shape-shifting dragons from the popular author of the Dragonfire novels. 

Zoë Sorensson is perfectly normal, except she's been told she's destined for great things. Zoë's the one female dragon shapeshifter of her kind. But Zoë is at the bottom of the class when it comes to being Pyr and her powers are AWOL, so she's sent to a Pyr boot camp.

Zoë quickly realizes that she has to master her powers yesterday, because the Pyr are in danger and boot camp is a trap. The Mages want to eliminate all shifters and the Pyr are next in line-unless Zoë and her friends can work together and save their own kind.

My thoughts:
Hm, I wanna make this short.

I did like Zoe but the guys, eh. Sure the whole point is that there were friction but Though Isabella was nice.

She had a crush. There is no real romance. There are crushes.

The kids are here to save the day and learn about their powers. Still bad job from the parents for not seeing it all coming.

It ended well with no real cliffie.

I enjoyed the book. It was one of those what? 200 pages? Where did that go? books :)

Would I read more by this author?

Eh, the only reason I read it now is cos it's snow on it, lol

No cliffie or love triangle that is good, what about the dragons?

I do love the adult series, but I am so behind on it! And the YA series is still on my wishlist as well. Thanks for reminding me Blodeuedd! I just love dragons so much.

Karen said...

Huh. The summary needs a little more - hit seems very matter of fact but I guess if it's a short story that's ok.

Blodeuedd said...

I need to try it, I have like book 4 or something ;)

Blodeuedd said...

It was a 300 page book
