I began reading this book with a few reservations: I had seen it a few times and kept pushing it away, but finally I picked it up and I'm so glad I did. The book was an amazing start to the series.
Firstly let's just start by saying the cover was absolutely beautiful, I loved it.
The writing is all first person from the main heroine Elena, she has a very witty and humorous side to her as well as being really down to earth and natural. She was very three dimensions and just made you love her. One of my favourite heroines since Mercy Thompson. The other characters were well rounded and very likeable, some I physically hated but throughout the story again you find them very appealing.
Now Blake and Lucian, well I must say these guys made the whole story perfect for me, I loved them and even if I had to pick, I probably couldn't, I loved them both for different reasons.
The pace of the book was very addictive and I never found myself tapping my foot hoping for a section of the story to finish.
Also the descriptions in the book for the places, events and characters were mesmerising, everytime I closed my eyes I could see the story playing out in my mind.
In not going to say about any of the events in the book, but I have now ordered the next 2 installments of the dragonian series.
If you have to pick a book today to read, choose this one. It made me laugh, cry, scream and smile; it was one beautiful rollercoaster ride that I was thoroughly engrossed in, whilst loving every minute.

My 10 year old son loved this book so much that he went on to read the other 2 in the series within 2 days! He is now complaining that the next one is not available until November. The story has really captured his imagination and it has been lovely to see him reading rather than playing on the PS4! However I must warn other parents that there is some bad language in these books. He said the first book only has 1 bad word but the 2nd and 3rd books are worse. (He was honest and responsible enough to tell me so I let him continue with the series). I do wish it was easier for parents to get the age rating on Amazon.

16 year old Elena may be used to her Dad uprooting her every 3 months but she remains resentful. This time he appears more anxious and furtive than ever, and as he remains secretive, the appearance of dragons attacking them on route during their car journey comes as a complete surprise to Elena, as does her Dad's transformation into a dragon as well.

Rescued, Elena learns that the vague memories she has of her Dad telling her of Paegeia; a land of magic and dragons, really exists and she's been transported there. Enrolled in a school, Elena is completely ignorant of the culture around her and is often left with her jaw hanging open after witnessing something magical that her fellow students take so much for granted. Yet a dark birthmark means that Elena has the potential to Ascend and claim a dragon; a thought that horrifies her after witnessing dragons attack her father.

This is a great start to a YA fantasy series. It has a healthy dollop of romance in the form of Lucian; a prince of the realm, but his ex-best friend Blake who has a somewhat dubious future as a one of a kind dragon that could potentially turn evil and destroy everything around him, will clearly play an important part in Elena's life. She also builds relationships with her roommates Becky and Sammy plus plenty of other students, teachers and relatives are introduced who impact on the plot. Elena is certainly out of her depth throughout much of this book and only starts to improve and show talent later in the story; plus her fears impede her progress, but she is certainly a resilient heroine destined to become someone very special in Paegeia.

This book had great potential. It had an interesting premise which could be developed in so many ways. The setting was excellent and the secondary characters were interesting, however it was let down by the primary character.

She was just so sappy. She basically fell in love instantly then proceeded to moon over the love of her life often in ways that were irritatingly clique. For example, she would fall back on her bed and sigh whilst wondering how she was going to cope without her boyfriend for a weekend!

If she had been developed as a strong independent, female lead, it would have fit in so much better with the storyline. Instead you end up with a love sick tween whose character the author can't seem to decide upon.

There was a lot about this book that I really enjoyed. The author is endeavouring to create a real world with some super, original ideas. That Said, maybe it's a sign of my advancing years - some of the dialogue grated, and I got a bit fed up with all the teenage angst. I would have liked to see more plot development and a faster pace. This was a little like an American college movie with the usual stock characters. The concept of the story deserves better. Especially taking into account some of its clever ideas.

I very rarely write reviews unless the book in question is truly outstanding, and the Dragonian series is just that!

I found this book like I find many of my favorites by shear coincidence, and I was glad that fate allowed me to find and read such a creative and engaging story/s.

Firebolt is the first installment of what is an epic series and is a page turner from start to finish. I consumed all three books in two day and was gutted when I realized the fourth will have a delayed publishing date. However, Adrienne woods has stated on her website that the fourth book could possibly be split into two, which has more than stated my disappointment.

For all those who have not yet read Firebolt and are looking at these reviews as a guide whether or not to read this book, my advise to you would be ... Buy it! Read it and fall in love with what is an original and magical tale.

The Dragonian series is not just for young adults, it has a little of everything, for everyone, including adults like myself. So please do not let the genre put you off.

It has creative and endearing characters that you can not help to love and hate.
The plot is fast paced and twists and turns in all directions, so there are few predictable plot sequences that will give away the essence of the story.
The world it set in is believable and will set you imagination alight, which is very hard to find in books now a days.

Congratulations Adrienne for writing such an amazing story.
