Dragons exist. They’re ferocious. And they’re smart: Before they were killed off by slayer-knights, they rendered a select group of eggs dormant, so their offspring would survive. Only a handful of people know about this, let alone believe it – these “Slayers” are descended from the original knights, and are now a diverse group of teens that includes Tori, a smart but spoiled senator’s daughter who didn’t sign up to save the world.The dragon eggs have fallen into the wrong hands. The Slayers must work together to stop the eggs from hatching. They will fight; they will fall in love. But will they survive?

Slayers is the first book in a new series by one of my favorite young adult authors. C.J. Hill is a pseudonym for author Janette Rallison. I’ve loved Janette’s young adult romantic comedies and was excited that she has branched out into the fantasy genre.

Slayers is a great book I enjoyed reading.  This is a clean fantasy book that will appeal to a wide audience from tweens through adults.  C.J. Hill has created a unique breed of dragons and dragon slayers and written them into a fun story line.  I’m looking forward to the sequel.
