Since the death of her father, Sienna Foxburn hasn’t felt safe. The White, a fire-breathing imperial dragon, terrorizes the Valley of Windridge with no end in sight. But Sienna isn’t satisfied hiding behind the walls of her keep. She is tired of fearing the dragon, but she can’t fight it alone.
Then a mysterious sorceress and two elite dragon hunters arrive, claiming to be sent by the King. Thus begins the great hunt for The White. Sienna embarks on a dragon-hunting adventure through the exotic Valley of Windridge, all while uncovering secrets and conspiracies that could endanger the entire Kingdom….

Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of Enchanted Book Promotions.
This was a book filled with adventure from the beginning. Sienna is no wilting flower, she kicks butt and stands up for herself when no one else will. I was surprised how quickly she branched out at the beginning of the book; it was very refreshing. Schreffer is also not afraid to provide the harsh realities of life. I enjoyed that the writing didn't dance around the damage that The White created. She did a great job balancing the detail without it becoming too much (as Game of Thrones can often be!).
My only complaint would the book felt like it was a little chopped at the end. There are clearly going to be subsequent books and I was left hanging. That is fine, I just wish there has been a little more of a real ending to tide me over until the next book. That being said I am certainly going to continue the series! This was one that had me glued to the book until the very end.
Warning: contains violence.
Rating: 5 stars!
Who should read it? Adventure fans who are willing to start another series.
