Sixteen-year-old Drake can’t understand why the virus spared him. The only survivors he’s seen vandalized his makeshift dwelling, and despite his sister’s dying wish that he connect with others, he spends his days alone – that is, until he shapeshifts into a dragon.

While exploring his new abilities, Drake nearly flies into Preston, another shifter. Their chances of survival increase if they team up with others like them, but when their search leads to a group in Las Vegas, they find not everyone is welcoming.

As Drake develops new relationships, Preston endures daily confrontation and eventually takes off on his own. Concerned for his friend’s safety, Drake launches a search and stumbles into a situation stranger than anything he could imagine. Now he must embrace his animalism if he wants to save his humanity.

Our Review

I was introduced to the main character in this book by the author’s prequel/serial of Drake’s world, Before the Flight. I loved it so much; I immediately bought a copy of the book.

Drake is a typical teenage boy, arguing with his sister Kelsey, in an ordinary world.
Then something happened…

His father, a doctor at the local hospital had been treating the victims of a nasty virus, a virus that soon decimates the population.

They begin to wonder if they are immune, as one by one, all their family die. Then Kelsey dies too, leaving Drake alone in a strangely empty world…

I don’t like to reveal any spoilers in our reviews, it is sufficient to say that as YA adventures go, this one is wonderfully complex, unusual and totally believable.

Drake does find survivors like himself, including a girlfriend, and they have an amazing adventure.

Brilliantly written, you are a part of it all, right from the start. The author’s powers of description put you right in the heart of the action with Drake and his friends.

I would recommend this book to anyone, not only YA, and wouldn’t be surprised to see a film made of it in the future. It really is that good!

  1. Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start
    my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Bless you!

  2. One newer but very popular way is by sharing videos and photos.
    If you intend your video to be viewed by a broad audience, then sharing becomes an option.
    So do your due diligence and make sure you sign up with a web hosting company that has a great reputation, provides you all the tools necessary to be successful in your business, and pays you for referring others
    to their business.
