This book has been checked out.  A lot.  A whole lot.  I finally decided to read it over Spring Break to see what all the fuss was about.  WOW!  I can’t believe it took me this long to read this book!  Have you read it?  Why not?

Don’t let the 500+ pages fool you.  This is a great, fast-moving read.  It’s about a boy who is actually a girl.  Eon was taken in by a “master” former Dragoneye.  Dragoneyes are people who have a rare ability to see and communicate with a dragon.  The dragoneyes are chosen by the dragon.

Eon is trying to win the Rat Dragon’s choice.  She has a special bond with him.  However, no one is prepared for what happens at the Dragoneye ceremony.

This book takes the reader on so many journeys.  You’re forced to examine prejudices you carry.  You are taken on a spiritual journey.  You examine what friendship really is and finally, you examine what it’s like to be raised ashamed of who you are.  All of this is intertwined into action-packed pages of fighting, political intrigue, cunning warfare, and daring rescues.

Review by Kaiann Elenburg

Some people don’t realize the true meaning of friendship.  Sarah Dessen tells a great story of two friends who are completely different but their differences bring them together even in the worst of times.  This is a wonderful story when two girls come together, sticking to one another no matter their decisions, even if it can be life changing.

Witchlanders by Lena Coakley January 8, 2012

I read Witchlanders over Christmas break.  It was a good book, especially for a first novel.  It is about two groups of neighboring people, the Witchlanders and the Baen, who do not get along with each other.  Many years ago, they were at war and the Witchlanders won over the Baen.  This story is told from Ryder’s point of view.  He is a teenage boy whose father died not too long ago and whose mother used to be one of the witches that rule over the Witchlanders.

if you like to read stories of magic, you will like this book, although it’s definitely not a normal kind of magic.  If you like to read the first book in a series before everyone else does, read this book.
