May Book Club: this month we’re getting all mythical with Julie Kagawa’s ‘Talon’ and ‘Rogue’ – grab your copy quick

From ‘The Hobbit’ to ‘How To Train Your Dragon’, we’re really starting to fall in love with these scaly, fire-breathing beasts. Even the YA section of our local book store has jumped on our latest obsession: ‘Firelight’ by Sophie Jordan, ‘Seraphina’ by Rachel Hartman, ‘Asunder’ by Jodi Meadows…and possibly our favourite: Talon’, by Julie Kagawa.

Ember is a dragon. She has lived her whole life training for this one summer when she finally gets to see the human world and actually talk to people who aren’t her brother or trainers, and it’s finally here. Ember, meet sunny California and surfing.


Garrett is a dragon hunter. He has been trained from birth to locate, hunt and kill dragons as part of the Order of St George. Sent on a mission to sniff out a dragon in hiding, he hits California’s shore with one thing on his mind: killing it. Or her, as he soon discovers, and she’s not at all what he’s expecting.

Think Romeo and Juliet, with a little more fire power. This book is packed with action, summer and deadly encounters, and we are way too excited about.

Get ready for ‘Talon’ and ‘Rogue’ to takeover MP!’s book club this May.
