Genre: Young Adult / Fantasy
Rating:  4.5 Stars
16-year-old Aurora Darlington is an orphan. Mistreated by her adopted family and bullied at school, she dreams of running away and being free. But when she is kidnapped and dragged through a portal into a magical world, suddenly her old life doesn’t seem so bad.

Avalonia is a dangerous land ruled by powerful mages and a cruel, selfish queen who will do anything to control all seven kingdoms—including killing anyone who stands in her way.Thrust headlong into this new, magical world, Aurora’s arrival sets plans in motion that threaten to destroy all she holds dear.

With the help of a young fae, a magical pegasus, and a handsome mage, Aurora journeys across Avalonia to learn the truth about her past and unleash the power within herself. Kingdoms collide as a complicated web of political intrigue and ancient magic lead Aurora to unravel a shocking secret that will change her life forever. 

Although I don't read enough YA these days, my heart still beats for them! The Last of the Firedrakes was just the YA book I needed to bring that magic back. Not only was it an amazing story but it also had tons of magic, a magical Pegasus, a cold-hearted queen, and the main character that I loved.

Let’s start with the story itself. I must admit that the book at first was a little slow for me, but once the third paragraph rolled in: DAMN GIRL!! From there on I was glued to the story and threw a tantrum every time I had to put the book down. The last of the Firedrakes has a unique story that manages to give us a ton of information and still keep It light to read and always super fun. 

Aurora was in a tough situation when the book first started, and I felt so bad for her! I instantly bonded with her because she’s such a likable character that despite her situation throughout the book, she overcomes it like a BOSS! I loved watching that evolution, it only made me love her even more. We all know that sometimes a 16-year-old in a book can be a little overwhelming, but Aurora was super mature and courageous. 

This is the first book I ever read from this author and I must say I’m impressed. Not only can she describe magical worlds that made me feel like I actually live there, but the overall book is wonderfully well written. It doesn’t have any slow moments, it kept me interested until the very end, it has tons of secrets to discover and characters that were truly unique. 

 The last of the Firedrakes was a wonderful journey that I can’t wait to carry on with on the second book. If you love fantasy stories filled with secrets, magic, loyal friends and an amazing main character, then this book is for you!
