Dragons Are People, Too by Sarah Nicolas, Review + Giveaway

Never judge a dragon by her human cover...
Sixteen-year-old Kitty Lung has everyone convinced she's a normal teen--not a secret government operative, not the one charged with protecting the president's son, and certainly not a were-dragon.

The only one she trusts with the truth is her best friend--and secret crush--the ├╝ber-hot Bulisani Mathe.

Then a junior operative breaks Rule Number One by changing into his dragon form in public--on Kitty's watch--and suddenly, the world knows. About dragons. About the Draconic Intelligence Command (DIC) Kitty works for. About Kitty herself.

Now the government is hunting down and incarcerating dragons to stop a public panic, and a new shape-shifting enemy has kidnapped the president's son. Kitty and Bulisani are the last free dragons, wanted by both their allies and their enemies. If they can't rescue the president's son and liberate their fellow dragons before getting caught themselves, dragons might never live free again.

                                                                      My Review:

Dragons Are People, Too by Sarah Nicolas is a clever YA Urban Fantasy novel where our main character Kitty, shows the readers a wonderful glimpse into the realm of were-dragons. I loved this book. Kitty works as a secret operative/spy/fighter/protector. I loved her vulnerability and all her strengths, there were many on both sides and the author did a great job of exploring both.

This novel wasn’t over the top with romance, but there was enough (Sani…sigh) to satisfy the tastes of romance lovers.

The premise was intriguing and kept me turning the pages.  I loved the idea of being saddled with the responsibility of protecting the President’s son.  Of course, nearly as soon as we meet Kitty, in the very opening pages, she is working with another dragon who loses his composure and is caught transforming on camera. Secret. Over.

With their cover blown, Dragons everywhere are being carted off. Panic sets in, people jump on the bandwagon and the chaos ensues. It’s where Kitty and Sani jump into all this that the story excels.

The author did a great job with the pacing of the story. It wasn’t too fast, but wasn’t bogged down with so much information that it wouldn’t keep my interest. The ending was somewhat abrupt, but I guess you have to stop somewhere. I haven’t quite figured out if this is a standalone or if there will be other future novels.

Overall, Dragons Are People, Too explored cultural diversity, was filled with nonstop action, and had just the right amount of romance in it to make it a well-rounded novel. I really enjoyed this and hope to read more works by Sarah Nicolas.
