Sixteen-year-old Trinity Foxx is used to her grandfather's crazy stories, so she doesn't believe that the latest treasure he brought home is a real dragon's egg. Not until their home is invaded by soldiers trying to steal it and a strange boy telling her the world as she knows it will be wiped out in a fiery dragon war - unless they work together to stop it. Meanwhile, there's a different voice whispering to Trinity, calling to her, telling her what to do…because the dragon in her egg is not ready to give up without a fight.

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I did not realized when I got this book it is based in modern times. I was under the impression it would be in a fantasy world when I bought the book. I really liked this book and plan on buying the next book in the series. Admittedly there were some parts that have been done before, but I still liked it. With a mix of stories plots like Eragon, Reign of Fire, Heroes, and Terminator the story was very action packed, luckily I like all these plots. But despite this the book was good, I think mainly because I like the main character. Trinity was just a normal teenage girl with an attitude that takes no crap which made me like her even more. Now there was a tiny bit of romance in the form of a trilogy, which normally I wouldn't like. In this story I didn't mind it too bad because that was not the focus of the main story line and I did like both the brothers Conner and Caleb equally. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like the narrator but as the story progress she either grew on me or she got better. I was afraid when the audio first started she was going to have a little girls voice and annoy me too much.
I mostly listened to this while riding my bike or driving, so I only half paid attention. I lost interest fairly quickly because the reader was awful, her inflections all off time. the story was okay. maybe I'll try reading the next book to see if it's better without the reader.
