3 STARS: I Liked It
All Emma has ever wanted to be, her goal in life, is a dragon-slayer like her legendary mom. Emma is still dealing with the death of her mom from 5 years ago. She also has to try to cope with her emotions at seeing her dad remarry. Emma’s step mom is sweet and happy and very pregnant.
I was very frustrated through most of this book because I thought it was so obvious what was going to happen! I thought I had all the answers… turns out I was wrong. I was actually surprised with some of the ending answers. It was still an enjoyable and light read.
Emma has 2 best friends, horoscope reading Loni and betting man Tyler. Tyler always has a bet going about something happening at their ‘slayer-training’ school while Loni religiously keeps up with horoscopes. Tyler and Loni are supportive friends and uniquely entertaining.
Curtis Green comes along and gets the dragon slayer designation Emma dreamed of and just knew she would get. To say Emma is angry and disappointed would be a major understatement. Can Emma learn to embrace her designation as fairy slayer?
“‘Yes, it’s called a Y chromosome,’ Loni retorted. ‘Guys aren’t supposed to be like girls because otherwise they would take up too much room at the mall and steal our makeup…'”
