Review: Flying Blind by Deborah Cooke
Flying Blind by Deborah Cooke
Published Date: June 2011
Publisher: NAL Trade
The Story: 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 Review: I LOVE this book. I couldn't put it down and had it read within two days (I did have to sleep and work)!! Deborah has given us a world where current teens can relate and us older ones can look back and laugh! I'm sure we all remember our first crush.
Once Zoe rediscovers her powers, she does all she can to help her friends and the rest of the Pyr. She does expierence some trials, I won't go into them since I don't like spoilers! But, after she works through them, she finds out what being a member of the Pyr is all about.
Can't wait for book two!
