As a dragon lover, I can happily say this is one of the most exciting dragon books I have ever read from YA. With a great plot and visually beautifully written scenes, Voices of Dragons is one ride YA readers do not want to miss.
The opening plot is very simple: Kay, a seventeen year old girl decides to rock climb near the border that divides modern day America and Dragon, territory where dragons roam freely. When she accidentally falls into the river that divides the two lands, she is rescued by Artegal, a young and rebellious dragon. From that moment they form an inseparable and forbidden friendship that could mean war between dragons and humans if discovered. And war does begin to brew when Kay and Artegal are spotted by a military air craft that crash lands into Dragon territory. Soon Kay and Artegal realize their friendship may be the only thing that stands in the way of war between humans and dragons.
Carrie Vaughn wonderfully blends Dragon Mythology and World History into this modern spin. With refreshingly adventurous protagonist and an equally exciting story line in this girl-meets-dragon novel, Voices of Dragons will leave heads spinning and readers longing for more dragons.
