This book is about a girl named Elena, who discovers one night that her father is, in fact, a dragon, and is taken to the magical world of Paegeia. She is enrolled in Dragonia, a school where dragons and humans together are trained in Latin, magic, and the special history of the region. As Elena learns more and more about this new world that is hidden from our own, a powerful sword is stolen by a sorcerer, and only Elena realizes what must be done to get it back. She, along with her new friends and some enemies, travel far to reclaim the precious artifact, becoming strong companions to each other. How are they possibly going to retrieve it?
I really liked the premise of this book; dragons and fantasy worlds that are close to our own in some way are very interesting to me. This book was good, but I feel it had a few flaws. It seemed that important events were explained too quickly and then the next event started before the reader could get fully invested in the previous one. This of course didn't ruin the book for me, but it did bother me somewhat. Another thing that I feel was wrong was that a lot of events were contrived. Granted, in the next part of the series this might be given a better explanation, but as it stands now it seems contrived.
