Dragon Age Inquisition, how to change language

"Talon - Dragon Age"

What's the matter?

Ember Hill looks like a normal girl to an outsider. She and her brother Dante spend the summer with their uncle and aunt in Crescent Beach, California. She loves surfing, goes to the mall with her best friends, and meets them on the beach almost every day. As normal as it seems, it is not. Because she and her brother are dragons in human form.

They have three months to adapt to people and learn as much as possible about them. This is the mission of the Talon organization, to which all dragons belong. It has a specific task for each and every one of them. The ultimate goal: to maintain your place in the world. However, the hostile Order of Saint George made the exact opposite its goal: for centuries it has tried to exterminate the dragons. Ember knows very little about the constant battles between dragons and the Knights of St. George and feels safe.

Until one day she meets the handsome Garret on the beach. Although she doesn't usually care too much about people, she is attracted to him. But she is also fascinated by the loner Riley, who broke up with Talon. And suddenly she questions everything.

Who is behind it?

Julie Kagawa has always had a passion for dragons and has finally fulfilled a dream with the novel "Talon - Dragon Time". She has already written herself in the hearts of many fantasy fans with the five-part series “Suddenly Fee”. She has also published the book series “Suddenly Prince” and “Immortal”.

Even as a little girl she loved reading books and even did so secretly in class. Otherwise, she spent her free time on the beach in Hawaii or wrote stories. After working as a bookseller and dog trainer, she turned her hobby into a profession. Today she lives with her husband in Louisville, Kentucky.

Short and sweet or thick ham?

With 556 pages, the novel looks more like a big ham. However, the font is definitely not too small and the chapters are usually short and sweet. The writing style is plain and simple. Therefore, the book is a big ham, but pleasant to read.

For the train, the armchair or the playground?

Where the book is read is absolutely irrelevant. I myself often read the book on the bus, during lunch break, in the waiting room or cuddled up in bed. The content is easy to understand and the book is easy to read. So you don't have to concentrate very much and background noises don't bother you at all. If you are tired of reality at school or at work, you can simply immerse yourself in a fantasy world with dragons with the novel. The only thing that might interfere with take away would be the weight.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how hard is it to put the book down?

At the beginning I would only have given the book a 4. Getting started is a bit tedious. The action goes on slowly and sluggishly. The whole thing changes at the latest when all protagonists have been brought into play. After a short time it becomes much more difficult to put the book down. Many new questions are quickly raised and you become more and more curious about what will happen next. That's why I give the book a total of 7 on a scale from 1 to 10.

Who do you lend it to first after reading?

I'll be the first to borrow it from my mom. When she saw the author's name on the cover, she half tore it out of my hand. Because she has already devoured the “Suddenly Fairy” series and was super happy that the author wrote something new. Otherwise, I would recommend it to any fantasy fan who has a thing for dragons.
