Dragons Are People, Too
Release Date: 04/28/15
Summary from Goodreads:
Never judge a dragon by her human cover...
Sixteen-year-old Kitty Lung has everyone convinced she’s a normal teen—not a secret government operative, not the one charged with protecting the president’s son, and certainly not a were-dragon. The only one she trusts with the truth is her best friend—and secret crush—the über-hot Bulisani Mathe.
Then a junior operative breaks Rule Number One by changing into his dragon form in public—on Kitty’s watch—and suddenly, the world knows. About dragons. About the Draconic Intelligence Command (DIC) Kitty works for. About Kitty herself.
Now the government is hunting down and incarcerating dragons to stop a public panic, and a new shape-shifting enemy has kidnapped the president’s son. Kitty and Bulisani are the last free dragons, wanted by both their allies and their enemies. If they can’t rescue the president’s son and liberate their fellow dragons before getting caught themselves, dragons might never live free again.
The main thing to draw me to this book was one word. Dragons. Any time I see the word dragon I'm like a meerkat popping it's head up. I love dragons and if a book is about them then there is a very strong chance I will read it. Dragons Are People, Too though was such a unique take on dragons. These are were-dragons and I think I've only read one other book about people that can shift into dragons and it was nothing like this. I absolutely loved Nicolas' take on them. This urban fantasy was action-packed, exhilarating and highly entertaining. It has such a diverse set of characters and I loved the protagonist, Kitty. She had all the characteristics I love: snarky, tough, and well able to kick some butt. And her side-kick Sani was also great. The two of them make a brilliant team and I loved watching them work together.
The story itself is very fast paced and has no shortage of action. The world building was done really well too. The history of dragons and DIC wasn't made overly complicated. It was easy to understand and follow and I never felt lost. The book is very well written and I just found myself completely immersed in this world. I stayed up until well after 3am to finish it, I just could not put it down. I really hope there will be a sequel because I need more! A fab start to what I hope will be an amazing series. Highly recommend this one :)
