A very deserving hype. If Meljean Brook did it for steampunk genre, Thea did it for dragon/fantasy genre (yes, theres bleeding subgenres under the subgenre). Surprising and engaging, I can't put this book down. It was more an action book with added mystery and of course.. ehem.Even if you're not a fan of PNR this book gets under your skin without you even knowing it. This is even better than I had expected. I can't stop reading the book since this afternoon. The writing is quirky and funny. There's a lot of serious talk and a lot of humours in it. The main characters are very likeable and the side characters are very memorable. Its rare for me to take notice of side characters in the series but they we're easily associated and their names are unusual. Gonna read the next book!
