*i was given this book in exchange for an honest review*
I usually don't go for books whose central point is an academy, they usually just have too much whiny characters, but I loved the last dragon book i read so i gave it a chance.
Avalon is a well rounded character, she is strong when needed and grows though out the book as needed.
This book kept my interest well, i finished it in a few hours, and i can't wait to read the next parts!
I love the very in dept details given though out the book, the only issue i had was at some points i think there was too much detail given. Books are supposed to help your imagination grow but i felt like some things were over described.
