Friday Memes: Soldier by Julie Kagawa

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The world was on fire.
Friday 56:
A muffled pop rang out, the distant retort echoing behind us, and Griffin jerked in his seat, his eyes going wide. I jumped and stared in shock as a thin stream of blood ran down his face from the hole in his forehead.
This week I am spotlighting Soldier by Julie Kagawa. This is the third book of 4 in her Talon Saga. Here is the description from Amazon:
When forced to choose between safety with the dragon organization Talon and being hunted forever as an outcast, Ember Hill chose to stand with Riley and his band of rogue dragons rather than become an assassin for Talon. She's lost any contact with her twin brother, Dante, a Talon devotee, as well as Garret, the former-enemy soldier who challenged her beliefs about her human side.

As Ember and Riley hide and regroup to fight another day, Garret journeys alone to the United Kingdom, birthplace of the ancient and secret Order of St. George, to spy on his former brothers and uncover deadly and shocking secrets that will shake the foundations of dragons and dragon-slayers alike and place them all in imminent danger as Talon's new order rises.


  1. Hi Kathy, it seems I've heard of other books in the series, but I don't think I'd heard about this one yet. So many books, so little time!

    Here's my Friday 56!

  2. I have heard this is a decent series but not tried it yet. :)

  3. I just got my copy! I've got to finsih the second book first, but then I'll be diving into this one.

  4. I haven't tried this series yet, but I did enjoy The Iron Fey series by Kagawa. So, this one seem like one I might enjoy.

  5. I've heard of this author but haven't read any of her books. Great opening and 56 excerpt.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

  6. It looks good. I'll have to add it to my TBR.

  7. I loved this one! :-) Happy weekend!

  8. I couldn't really get into the first book, but I just love that this is a four-part series. I'd like to see more of those.

  9. I am always curious how books play in the library. I have Kagawa's other series which was very popular and now no one checks out. Does this series circulate?

  10. I need to start this series!

    Thanks for visiting my blog earlier!
