Talon
Talon | Julie Kagawa
Book 1 of the Talon SagaIn Julie Kagawa's groundbreaking modern fantasy series, dragons walk among us in human form. Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they're positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser. Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George. Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon's newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey—and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember's bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him—and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.

Gonna enjoy this next 24 hours seeing all I can eat is soft cold food to help with the swelling of having 12 teeth pulled. I am also gonna try and read Talon to distract me from the pain. I am on pain medication but 4 of my teeth give my oral surgeon a fight so he warned me I might be in some pain even with the strong pain medications he gave me.

Another read from the HS library. I enjoyed the set up of this series and this world. It was a little slow at times, but by the end I couldn‘t put it down. I definitely plan on picking up the sequel to find out what happens next. I do hope the love triangle eventually goes away though, I get tired of those in YA. #vhsreads #yalit #dragons

Huh. That wasn't totally what I was expecting and I'll be honest that I felt rather lost for a good chunk of the book but it did definitely get better as it went on. I eye rolled hard at the romantic triangle but I liked having several good/bad/grey sides or organizations to the story. Somewhere between 3 and 3.5 stars and I'll definitely pick up the sequel

I had an Instagram prompt for a #shinybook so I grabbed one off my shelf . . . And I used it as an excuse to make coffee to go with my brownie.

This book is high on my #tbr list, but right now it's just so pretty!

Finished listen to Talon today. The book was well done and I was really interested in the society of Talon and St. George Clan. Even dragons have problems with the politics of their society. I enjoyed the characters and the plot line.

Currently listening to Talon on audiobook. 😊 Been wanting to read this series for so long and I just started to listen to audiobooks and in love with audiobooks since I can read for a part of the day and then listen to an audiobook as I play on my phone.

Talon… agak di luar ekspetasi. Hanya ada naga dan drama cinta segitiga manusia-naga-naga. Masih banyak detail/ misteri yg mungkin terungkap di buku kedua. Jadi, sayang saja jika melewatkannya.

Rate Talon: 3 🌟🌟🌟

I loved Julia Kagawa's Iron Fey series which is why I wanted to read the Talon series.

It's surprisingly slow for a book about dragons - and they're often (mostly) in human form which was a disapointment. The main bulk of this book also focuses on Ember being a teenage girl with friends and a love interest.

Overall a decent read, but doesn't live up to expectations. Hopefully the series picks up 🐉

This is my first Kagawa book. Maybe I should have gone with the Iron Fey series instead. I wasn't too fond of Ember, who comes across a whiny teenager than dragon. The story isn't bad, and the writing is excellent, but I think I won't miss much if I stop now (so many more promising books to read!)

josie281 Run to the Iron Fey series! I love that one and am currently rereading it. I bailed on Talon. (edited) 2y

I have never heard of this author, nor this book, but it is a free read on the Series Starters Prime Channel at Audible and sounds like it could be good. I am only a couple of chapters in so it is hard to say any more at this point ...Has anyone read this book/series? #litsyatoz

DiruVamp It sounds interesting let me know how you like it. 2y

QOTD: Would you rather own a flying unicorn or Dragon?

Apparently Talon is about dragons. That's all I know and that's all I need to feel like it's going to be amazing. I read Julie Kagawa's first series Iron Daughter... I really enjoyed the first book but then kind of lost interest by the second. Even with losing interest I can say that Kagawa is amazing when it comes to world building and she writes some pretty awesome man as well.

#JulieKagawa was visiting #Denmark in conjuction with the release of the Danish translation of the third instalment of her Talon Saga this past week, and I found out she would be visiting a bookstore fairly close by on Monday night 🙂 I hadn't read anything by her and Monday morning at 7 I started this, fell in and loved it 😍 I didn't go see her, but I finished the book in a day and was so excited I couldn't fall asleep at night 😆🙈

BookFreakOut They're good fun, not busting the brackets of my all-time favorites but I plan on picking up Soldier. The multiple POVs are nice. 3y

I enjoyed this book and the dragon premise but found some of the romance and youth elements a little predictable and time wasting. That said I am a grown up reading a YA novel!
