Critical Thoughts

TPG Reviews: Talon, by Julie Kagawa

Slow, tedious and annoying.

Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they’re positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.  758 more words
