Book review: Talon the Black, by Melissa Mitchell

. tata.lifepages | Gifted | YA fantasy |

Rating: 5 out of 5.

As soon as I spotted the book I was drawn, the dark cover filled with dragon scales and its sheer size were both intimidating and captivating. As I read, I was fascinated by the authors eloquence, the writing is descriptive and beautiful. The story is told in third person, from the point of view of various characters spread out throughout the world of Dragonwall. It mainly focused on Claire and Talon’s point of view, which carried the main plot-line, however all characters storylines were intertwined masterfully.

An amazing cover!

I also loved Tamara’s story, which had more insights on the concept of the Drengr race and their mates. The world-building is outstanding; the author was able to create this slow burn high-fantasy full of magical creatures (dragon-shifters, goblins, mages, sprites…) that you find yourself completely immersed in. The story has many romance storylines happening in parallel, which for me is amazing because you guys know I love me some romance! I am eager to get my hands on book 2, I get the feeling that my favorite trope is brewing (enemies to lovers) … 😉
