The threat is soon forgotten, though, when Hux, the ice blue dragon, comes to Artimé bearing the horrible news that his siblings have been enslaved by the notoriously evil Revinir, ruler of the dragon land.

Seeking a chance to right their wrong and escape their brother’s wrath, Thisbe, Fifer, and their friend Seth sneak away to rescue the dragons from grave peril. Will their untrained abilities be enough to save the dragons—and themselves—when they come face-to-face with the Revinir?

100 Books Celebration!

100 BOOKS CELEBRATION

What? 100 Books? It took about 5 years to read 100 books. In order to celebrate, I was going to pick out a Top 10 Favorite Books of the 100 books I have read. However, I couldn't pick only 10 and ended up with a list of 25 books instead. Oh well. What can we do with books??


The Ones That Began It All

The first book I read was The Hunger Games. It was the time where the movies were just coming out and everyone was talking about. I never had the need to read before, but I had to know what all the talk was about. I've read the series and that was it. Later one, in an English, I finished a book project early that I did on The Vicious Deep. Since we had so many classes dedicated to the project, my teacher told me to pick a book and just read. I was not allowed to sit there looking into space. When I walked to the bookshelf, I noticed Divergent and thought it was cool and picked it up. My teacher noticed how much I was into it and told me to borrow it so I could finish and thus, a reader was born. After Divergent, I picked up The Unwanteds on chance and it became a favorite. These books are truly what began my obsession with reading.

Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there's no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs. 

Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David's willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic—Firefight. And he's willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.
