Dragons. Right. Teenage girls don't believe in
fairy tales, and sixteen-year-old Elena Watkins
was no different.
Until the night a fairy tale killed her father.
Now Elena is in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a prince wants Elena's heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh and the only way Elena's going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own.
Teenage girls don't believe in fairy tales. Now it's time for Elena to believe in...herself.
Adrienne Woods was meant for writing this type of book. I felt like she was able to keep my interest from beginning to end with relative ease. Her grasp on delivering the story in a seemingly seamless way really worked for me. The story felt real to me. Whenever I read fantasy, it's important for me to get the feeling that I'm actually in the world that the story is happening in. With Firebolt, I definitely got that feeling!
My biggest drawback would have to be Elena. She wasn't a bad character. She just had her moments that grated on my nerves. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy her character; I did. And I thoroughly enjoyed the other characters in the story, as well. The author is skilled at managing a large cast of characters, and I enjoyed getting to know all of them. Their dynamics were very fun.
I enjoyed Firebolt quite a lot. Fans of Harry Potter who are chasing that next nostalgic high should definitely give a closer look to this book. Though in general, I think I would recommend this to a younger crowd of readers who are looking to delve into the fantasy genre.
**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. My thanks to Adrienne Woods.
