“If I could fly, I would live in tree. Stare down at everyone… quietly hating them all.”
This is the 7th book in the Dragon Kin series by G.A. Aiken. This is by far the best book from this series. It is one of the best books I’ve read in a long while. I don’t even think I can write a proper review. That’s honestly how much I loved it. But I shall try.
The book starts off with Elina with a ridiculously long name from the Stepps “attempting” to assassinate the Dragon Queen. I say “attempting” because she really didn’t try. She told the guard, Celyn, that she was there to kill the queen and then when brought before the queen she told her that she was there to kill her.. Everyone laughed and Celyn was ordered to put her somewhere safe and he put her in jail and then forgot about her for months. But then the Queen decides she wants Elina to try to help form an alliance with the dragons and the women of the Stepps. So thats how the whole journey started. Celyn escorts Elina back home.
Obviously a lot more happens but you can read the book and find all that out. What I freaking loved about this book was Elina and Celyn. I don’t even know how to explain. Elina is blunt to the point of rudeness. She takes everything that is said literally and everything she says is meant to be literal. She says anything and everything that should never be said. She wasn’t dramatic in any way. Everything was said just as a fact and I effing love her. I seriously want her in my life. No other character has ever made me laugh as much.
And Ceyln just accepts and takes anything that Elina throws at him. And he is funny as well. I also love his interaction with his sister. I don’t think anyone else could have made a better mate for Elina. He was sweet, even when Elina had no clue why. He was just adorable. He is my favorite dragon. By far. I love him.
I loved everything about this book. Every single word was perfection.
