Now that Cove is safe, Kallista is determined to find any sin of her father – she is sure that he is still alive. With Trenton’s help, she sets on her journey, following the clues. To their surprise, they find an entire of city of people living underground – people who worship the dragons that are trying to kill all humans. For the first time Kallista asks herself, “Where do the dragons come from?” Danger, deception, and heartbreak await the pair on their journey.
Savage throws his pair right back into danger and intrigue in the newest part of the series. This definitely doesn’t suffer from second-book-syndrome! While the danger is high, it is perfect for upper elementary as well as middle school readers. I found it fun to see dragons as the enemy for once. Savage is really finding his groove.
