Voices of Dragons

Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn

When the United States detonated the first atomic bombs in 1945, they did more than just end World War II. They disturbed and angered the dragons who had been living deep underground for centuries. War between humans and dragon threatened the entire world, but a peace treaty was soon negotiated giving the dragons there own territories, including part of the northern Rocky Mountain Range. For 60 years dragons and humans have kept an uneasy peace.

Seventeen-year-old Kay Wyatt didn't mean to cross the Dragon border, but when a young dragon saves her life they soon become friends. Dragons, Kay discovers, are just as intelligent as humans. Over time, Kay and the dragon Artegal begin to question why their two races had ever fought in the first place. However, friendship and loyalties are about to be harshly tested, because someone doesn't want peace, secretly provoking both sides into another war. Kay may just be a teenager, but she's determined to stop the fighting leading her to realize she may have to sacrifice more than she ever thought she would have to.

This is a wonderful modern day adventure blended with themes of real life and making tough choices. Voices of Dragons is a great combination of the real and the fantastic.
