Sloane Murphy thought hiking the Grand Canyon alone after graduation would be an awesome adventure. Until she slips and starts to plummet to her death. Then the unthinkable happens.
She transforms into...a dragon.
After flying to safety and trying to convince herself she isn’t having a mental breakdown, the hunters come for her. She runs, somehow managing to stay one step ahead of them. Until her luck runs out. Now the hunters have her, and they intend to kill, not capture.
That’s when he comes for her.
Logan Sharp is the last dragon shifter alive. Or so he thinks, until he gets word that the druids are hunting a red-headed female. His team takes her in, sheltering her because there is a truth she must learn: if the Skyborn die out, then so does humanity.
But Sloane is hiding a dark secret that she doesn’t even know yet. A secret that could change everything.
Recommended age 16+ due to language.

Dumb lead character but promising story
This book is a good example of why you should push through some books until the end. For first 1/3 of the book, I was planning to give it an extremely low rating. It comes across as very childish in the verbiage and the main characters inner thoughts. Stuff like, "having a half naked dragon shifter hold me while he made plans fir his pet kitten made my ovaries ache fir his babies..."
I mean REALLY?
At one point the main character is told not to lie because someone is a Truth Witch. Do you know what she asked???? She actually asks, "What does a Truth Witch do?"
OMG... I SNATCHED MY HEADPHONES OFF AT THAT LINE!
Seriously, if someone tells you not to lie because a Truth Witch is here ant reasonable person would conclude that they can tell if you are speaking the truth. I mean it's in their freaking name.
So with a Main Character who wasnt so bright... I lost hope for awhile but I pushed on.
And then there was the constant repeating of the sames lines:
"If I die. You die."
"I have to remember that if he dies then I die"
"Don't run! If they kill you then they kill me"
I heard that shit so much I knew when it was coming. I did audio but I bet it's there once on every page for the last chapter.
The concept of the main story is a good one but wasn't delivered/developed well. I felt like the author should have actually given us less. That sounds funny but let me explain: Less is more some times. This first book would have done well with just the Druid vs Dragons theme. But the author attempts to explain the Fae and Fairie land that didnt directly affect the story. That portion should have been left out and left for future books. For me all it did was make me think harder on all the other things that didn't make sense. Example. Why track someone with a spell without putting an actual tracker on their car since they keep driving it to get away from you?
There was also this strange section where Sloan gives the story of her friend being raped. It was sooooo not what was needed there. This book hadn't earned the right to be "deep" and this section felt forced. If you're gonna be a light hearted giggly book with teenage banter and child like responses to emergencies then stick with it. Rape is are dark topic and the character just didn't seem mature/deep enough to pull it off. It instantly went back to its light hearted Ness after the story. Leaving me like WTF?
The characters are what to be expected from a book with a Were-animal pack. There is an Alpha, a kick ass girls who are also sexy, a bitchy girl, a sensative wolf. I don't know any of their names and I literally just stopped listening. oh nevermind, I remember Sophie.
By the end of the book, I became so irritated with the main character that I held on just to see her get in trouble.
What really moved the book up from a 1 star to a three is the action and Seagrams. While I sipped my beverage I thought about the narrator. The book is read in a way that makes the charter seem young and goofy. But if I thought about those sane lines being read a different way, then I really believe the book with have a different feel.

Great premise, but it felt underdeveloped and was too easy to predict. Loved the mix of fae/druid/shifters, but the plot seemed abstract. Bad guy is mentioned a few times, but not much story behind him. Did not feel connected to the events, or seem to be relevant to protagonist's genealogy research-which takes up most of this book. Paired with her "mysterious" attraction to another shifter, which was explained long before anything happened to naturally explain their bond, and you have a frustratingly easy to foretell story about a bunch of magical creatures that don't get along and can't procreate across specific species. Narrator was not bad. Easy to understand, but not a great distinction between characters.

Another great start to a brand new series from the versatile and talented Leia Stone.
I loved the concept of a girl who is clueless of what she is and was puts into dangers and wham she transform into a dragon. Not just any old dragon but a skyborn, the only second one in existence that everyone knows off and that she belongs to this magical group of dragons who are bound to humanity , to protects them from sickness and whatever threatens them.
On the other hands the Druids pure blooded magical creatures who hunts skyborn and steals their magic. This is an awesome story.
