Obsidian Review

Written By: Kimberly Loth

Series: The Dragon Kings #1 

Goodreads synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Aspen is a skydiving, rock climbing, adrenaline junky. All her life, she’s been fascinated by the dragons who roam near her home in Yellowstone Park. Yes, Dragons. Though no human has ever gotten close enough to touch one. Except Aspen. While most people avoid the national parks because of the resident dragons, Aspen spends most of her free time in search of the feared and misunderstood creatures. For her, studying the dragons is a way to escape a painful past and avoid getting too close to anyone. She’d rather track dragons in the wild and through the lens of her camera than talk to real people. But then Aspen meets a hot new guy at school, Sid King. He’s the one person she’s ever met who shares her obsession with all things dragon. But even as she feels strangely drawn to the mysterious boy, she senses he’s hiding his own set of dark and powerful secrets. When hikers start turning up dead in the park, everyone suspects the formidable predators. Unless Aspen can prove their innocence, every one of her beloved dragons is in danger of eradication. After Aspen and Sid uncover a sinister plot behind the brutal attacks, Aspen can no longer deny that Sid somehow knows more about the deaths than he should and the secrets they both keep threaten to rip their lives apart forever.

Brandi's thoughts:

First off I took a leap reading this as I've never read and dragon books and barely watch anything with dragons beside the movie Reign of Fire :). I only started this because I love Kimberly's other series: Stella and Sol & Omega Mu Alpha Brothers. That being said I absolutely loved this!! I cannot believe I waited so long but at least now I have 4 more books that are ready to be read! :)

I was not expecting narration to come from the dragon itself, I think I was expecting something more along the lines of Petes Dragon lol. This was way better. Halfway thru this I ordered the next book on Amazon. The dragons were beautiful in this book.

Kimberly leaves us hanging with a huge cliffhanger and I'm left with, "Oh no she cannot do that!" So now I am off to start reading the next book, Aspen. Gotta see what happens next.

P.S. Love the names!
