Here’s a description from the publisher:

“The children of dragons and humans, the dracons, control eighty percent of the world’s governments. Humans worldwide are either subservient or prey. On the small vacation island of Mabi, humans call for war.

Sixteen year old Dakota Kekoa lives a double life. By day, she pretends to be a human to infiltrate Mabi Academy, a ‘human’s only’ high-school. At night, she works as a henchman for her draconic mafia family, utilizing her ability to steal and manipulate emotions.

Dakota’s life is not ideal but it is manageable, until the rich and famous half-dragon, Wyvern Manderson, shows up and starts sabotaging Dakota’s missions. And for some bewildering reason, he is always angry at her.

Within days of Wyvern’s arrival, Dakota is suspended from future missions and in desperate need of money. When Wyvern offers to hire Dakota to find his kidnapped human half-sister, she accepts despite knowing she’ll have to spend all day, every day, with Wyvern and his gigantic ego. This is not just any mission though; she is diving head first into the escalating conflict between humans and dracons. As more girls disappear and some are discovered dead, Dakota realizes her first honorable mission may also be her last.”

My Review:

I really enjoyed this story, I liked the universe created in this story. I’ve always liked the fantasy stories, and boy is this story packed with it, we have were-people, half dragon half humans. It’s not just a fantasy story it’s really more set in the real world and it’s very well written. The main character Dakota, felt like a full well-written character, and I felt for her struggles and what she felt was her responsibility to her family. I also liked that the supporting cast felt real and were fun characters. I can’t wait for the sequel and seeing more from the author. This book is set to come out on January 12th, 2016.
