Thank you Brett Salter for giving me this book with an exchange honest review.

I must say it’s been a long time for me reading middle grade book but with the premise of dragon, I want to read this one.

This is the first book in the series but despite that this book offer us a fast paced plot. Usually fantasy book will give us a long story about their world or upcoming conflict but not this one, I like how fast the author just give it to us, it make this book to the point of the conflict. Not really much world building here because the world is the same like ours now but I love the characters. Not really much characters exposed in this book, we focused on Rome and Julian bonding. And I love their bonding. Not knowing each other but they need to be bonding to save the world, their bonding also happen so fast, I was wondering what else will the author give us if they already have this kind of bonding.

In this book we already met some of source of the problem, Garm, and I love to see Julian and Rome develop their skill slowly to against this Garm. Not perfect but slowly get better. The author also threw us some of mysterious part that will be explain later in next book, it makes me curious about what will happen in the future. I think as the first book on the series, this book already gave reader a great amount of information and hint for the next event, make us want to read the next one sooner.

I give this book 4 ⭐rating! For people who love middle grade book surely will love this one!
