Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Amie Kaufman comes an electrifying new series about a brother and sister who must harness their powers and find their place in a sharply divided world.

Everyone in Vallen knows that ice wolves and scorch dragons are sworn enemies who live deeply separate lives.

So when 12-year-old orphan Anders takes one elemental form and his twin sister, Rayna, takes another, he wonders whether they are even related. Still, whether or not they’re family, Rayna is Anders’ only true friend. She’s nothing like the brutal, cruel dragons who claimed her as one of their own and stole her away.

In order to rescue her, Anders must enlist at the foreboding Ulfar Academy, a school for young wolves that values loyalty to the pack above all else. But for Anders, loyalty is more complicated than obedience, and friendship is the most powerful shape-shifting force of all.

entertaining story

This book was very enjoyable, I really liked Anders, the main character. All the characters were great actually. great beginning to a series and I can't wait to see what's next.
I have to say though, wasn't a big fan of the narrator, the voice didn't seem to fit with the book at all since it's from a 12 year old boy's point of view. I wish they got someone who sounded younger or at least not so severe.

Great story and awesome narrator

Another great book from Amie Kaufman! I listened to the audio and it was great. The narrator has done The Illuminae Files and does an awesome job. The story was interesting and well paced. I liked the characters and the wolves and dragons were cool. It was nice seeing the story from a younger character's POV. The story did a good job of giving us some history as we went, so we weren't overloaded at the beginning and we found out things as Anders learned them. Seeing the different abilities of the two races was fun and I was invested throughout the book. There were strong female characters which I enjoyed as well as some cool guys who didn't put women down. I really loved this book and now I can't wait for book 2! Highly recommend.

A well thought out tale

This story was an interesting one for me. The beginning seemed difficult to get into, but as the story progressed, it really clicked for me. The premise of warring factions of shapeshifters is nothing new, but with the younger focus and interesting world, I felt it worked well. Overall, if you are interested in shapeshifters, dragons, wolves or anything else fantasy, give it a try. It is well worth the time.
