Talon
by Julie Kagawa
Release Date: October 28th, 2014

Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they're positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.

Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.

Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon's newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey: and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember's bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him: and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.


Jess's thoughts:

"Its been a long time since I've read a book by Julie. I still have her vampire series to read, but I can't wait for this as ita dragons. And you don't get many books with dragons. Awesome"

18520398The Bridge from Me to You
by Lisa Schroeder

Release Date: July 29th 2014

Lauren has a secret. Colby has a problem. But when they find each other, everything falls into place. 

Lauren is the new girl in town with a dark secret. Colby is the football hero with a dream of something more.

In alternating chapters, they come together, fall apart, and build something stronger than either of them thought possible--something to truly believe in.

Donna's thoughts: 
  I’ve never read anything by Lisa Schroder but The Bridge of You and Me sounds like a good way to start.

The blurb doesn’t give much away, so I’m hoping it’s going to be full of hidden secrets. I can’t wait!

These are both brilliant books ladies! I definitely need a dragon book in my life and Kagawa's latest book sounds amazing! I've only read one book by Schroeder Donna, it was called The Day Before, but it was such a beautiful read! I definitely need to tackle her other books on my kindle!
