Overview

Sarah Dewhurst and her father, outcasts in their little town of Frome, Washington, are forced to hire a dragon to work their farm, something only the poorest of the poor ever have to resort to.

The dragon, Kazimir, has more to him than meets the eye, though. Sarah can’t help but be curious about him, an animal who supposedly doesn’t have a soul, but who is seemingly intent on keeping her safe.

Because the dragon knows something she doesn’t. He has arrived at the farm with a prophecy on his mind. A prophecy that involves a deadly assassin, a cult of dragon worshippers, two FBI agents in hot pursuit—and somehow, Sarah Dewhurst herself.

It is not too quickly, but at a pace that keeps the reader engaged waiting to discover the outcome. It has a satisfactory ending which is a little predictable but ties up all the loose ends. Some of the male characters are a little too good to be true but that doesn’t spoil any part of the story. The author switches between the two time periods effortlessly and easily which doesn’t always happen in these kinds of books. Each storyline had a richness that was only strengthened by the comparison and contrast to the other.

  1. Kai

    I honestly don’t know what to do with this book. Finished it yesterday and just couldn’t make my mind up about it. It’s definitely a Patrick Ness novel in all its originality and weirdness. It reminds me of Release in that two separate stories are being told in one book. 

  2. Sam

    I was intrigued when this was first announced, because Patrick Ness + dragons. And then throw in a prophecy about the end of the world, an assassin, and two FBI agents as well.

  3. Harley

    I had the highest expectations for this book when it was announced, because Patrick Ness and dragons sounded like perfection, and I was scared for it to be anything less.

  4. Riley Redgate

    wow, JUST when i think i’m done with the towering stack of Historical Fantasy Red Scare-Era Socially Conscious Dragon-Farmhand-Plus-Cultist-Assassin-Turned-Multiverse-Travel novels the publishing industry has on offer, yet ANOTHER one gets churned out.

  5. Bridget

    Like I always do with a Patrick Ness, I had pre-ordered this and I had some worries going into it because the last couple of books haven’t been my faves. I was so hoping he wouldn’t disappoint me with this one.
