Talon was written by Julie Kagawa and first published in 2014. It is a paranormal romance story which focuses on a young dragon as she experiences life as a human for the very first time. The book is the first instalment of The Talon Saga and is followed by Rogue (2015). A second sequel, provisionally titled Soldier, is expected to be released next year.

Ember Hill and her twin brother, Dante, have just reached a vital part of their training. For most of their lives, they have been restricted to a Talon compound, learning about humans so that they will be eventually able to hide among them. Now, that day is finally here. Their first mission is to spend the summer in a Californian beach resort, befriending humans and learning to imitate them.

It sounds like fun and games but a dragon’s life is never so easy. Ember is now forced to balance her new found human freedoms with strict combat training. Her instructor is always quick to remind her that she is not one of them. Dragons are predators, humans are prey. Her job is to learn how to manipulate them to her advantage.

But there are humans that pose a threat to Talon. The Order of St George have taken it upon themselves to wipe them out. To further this end, Garret Xavier Sebastian is sent to California in order to root out and destroy Ember. He’s grown up believing that dragons are monsters but Ember’s passion and courage soon gives him pause for thought. Yet when a rogue dragon also appears at the resort, everything changes. Suddenly all that Ember once knew – Talon, St George, humans – is thrown into doubt. She must decide which path she wishes to tread but it’s not an easy choice to make. No matter who she sides with, the others will surely want her dead…
