Annie and Lee were just children when a brutal revolution changed their world, giving everyone—even the lowborn—a chance to test into the governing class of dragon riders.
Now they are both rising stars in the new regime, despite backgrounds that couldn’t be more different. Annie’s lowborn family was executed by dragon fire, while Lee’s aristocratic family was murdered by revolutionaries. Growing up in the same orphanage forged their friendship, and seven years of training have made them rivals for the top position in the dragon riding fleet.
But everything changes when survivors from the old regime surface, bent on reclaiming the city.
With war on the horizon and his relationship with Annie changing fast, Lee must choose to kill the only family he has left or to betray everything he’s come to believe in. And Annie must decide whether to protect the boy she loves . . . or step up to be the champion her city needs.
From debut author Rosaria Munda comes a gripping adventure that calls into question which matters most: the family you were born into, or the one you’ve chosen.

Told in dual point of view you see the story come to live before your very eyes, the characters, the world, everything, you find out that there was a brutal revolution that happened and that everything changed, and with that changed came a new time when everyone no matter who they are could test to see if they have what it takes to be dragon riders. As for the story itself the plot was so well thought out and detailed, that I had no trouble understand what was going on and the even though the world building was slow it was through explained in away that it brought the story even more to life . It's a story that's about good vs evil, right or wrong and friendships vs the family that we are born into . And our choices . With that said I want to thank NetGalley for letting me read it and review it .
