As you can see, I am enjoying my holidays and has started to read all the books that I could not read for the past few months. I was able to read yet, another book, and thought of writing the review straight away. Without further a do, let’s head into the review.
Everyone in Vallen knows that ice wolves and scorch dragons are sworn enemies who live deeply separate lives.
So when twelve-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’s 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 shapeshifting force of all. (from Goodreads)
The story begins by introducing the two main characters of the story, Anders and Rayna. They are twins who live on the streets, and depends on each other to survive. The bond between them is so deep and heart warming.
I loved both of the characters and the qualities that they posses. The most fascinating thing about them was the deep bond that connects them to each other. They live in a city and a time where there is a constant battle between the Ice wolves and the Scorch Dragons. When both Andres and Rayna gets to know about their true identity; Andres, an Ice Wolf and Rayna, a Scorch Dragon, they are too caught between the battles.
This is my very first book by Amie Kaufman and I must say she has a very strong sense of writing. The characters were well crafted and the story was interesting. Which is why I was able to complete it in a such short period of time. I felt that the story is focused more on the young readers, but anyone can get a hold of it and make it as a quick read.
Apart from the characters, what I enjoyed most about the story was the multicultural city that they lived in. It was full of hustle and bustle and filled with action. I pretty much enjoyed everything about it. Specially how the people lived peacefully. The second thing which I enjoyed in the story was, the life of the Ulfar Academy. It reminded me a lot about the life of Hogwarts, in Harry Potter.
Overall I pretty much enjoyed the whole story, plot, characters and all the details. I would highly recommend this book.
(5/5 Stars) Tremendous, I like it very much.
I hope you enjoyed and do leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments below.
