"On one side of the border lies the modern world: the internet, homecoming dances, cell phones. On the other side dwell the ancient monsters who spark humanity's deepest fears: dragons.I have to say this is going to be one of my favs for the year. Its sort of a Romeo/Juliet with out the love but just a friendship. It is also like Aragon, in the learning to ride although Kay doesn't get the special powers when she rides Artegal.
Seventeen-year-old Kay Wyatt knows she's breaking the law by rock climbing near the border, but she'd rather have an adventure than follow the rules. When the dragon Artegal unexpectedly saves her life, the rules are abruptly shattered, and a secret friendship grows between them.
But suspicion and terror are the legacy of human and dragon interactions, and the fragile truce that has maintained peace between the species is unraveling. As tensions mount and battles begin, Kay and Artegal are caught in the middle. Can their friendship change the course of a war?
In her young-adult debut, New York Times bestselling author Carrie Vaughn presents a distinctly twenty-first-century tale of myths and machines, and an alliance that crosses a seemingly unbridgeable divide."
Pretty much the book is about how humans are afraid of dragons and how they are willing to start a war and the only human who has talked to a dragon in a really long time is Kay and how she may be able to stop the war with Artegal at her side. If she able to talk to him. Lesson to learn: Don't be afraid and hate something that you don/t understand.
