- The world was unlike anything I've ever read. I seriously want MOAR backstory. I want to see more inside Talon, because it was so engrossing to me. I love secret societies. The backstory/world of Talon was actually what kept me flipping pages to begin with.
- DRAGONS. Seriously, besides the Defiance trilogy, I haven't personally read many YA books with dragons. Let alone, a dragon as a main character. This was a refreshing change in an oversaturated market full of all kinds of paranormal creatures.
- Multiple POVs. Not only do we get the story from the dragon herself, Miss Ember Hill. We also get swoony soldier Garret's, as well. Later on, we are also introduced to a certain rogue dragon, but personally, I was all caught up in Garret and Ember to care too much about him. I really liked seeing the opposite sides of the story from different POVs. I related more to Garret and Ember because of it.
- SWOONS. I don't know what it was about Garret, maybe the whole soldier aspect of it, but boy, I was flailing over this particular boy. Can I have one?
- Rebellious, action-packed plot. Talon is not lacking in the action department. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entirety.
- That ending. The first book hasn't even released, and I am DYING inside because I need the second installment SO BAD!!
Talon has hands-down lived up to every expectation. Julie Kagawa is always a master story weaver! Consider yourself pre-pushed into reading Talon this fall! Trust me, you don't want to miss it! Still not convinced? Look for my review at the end of September!
