Dragons become humans, sunny Cali, surfing, action, hunters and a serious love triangle. What more could you want in a series?

Rogue book coverIf you read ‘Rogue’ do you feel that you need to read the first in the series ‘Talon’ to understand it fully?
Yes, I think you do. Whilst the reader wouldn’t be entirely puzzled, they’d be missing out on a lot of info from the first book…

Rogue book cover

If you read ‘Rogue’ do you feel that you need to read the first in the series ‘Talon’ to understand it fully?
When I first started ‘Rogue’ I was a little confused. As far as I can tell, this book picks up where the first book left off and having not read the first book I felt a bit out of the loop. However, as I progressed I quickly caught onto the world and characters. I wouldn’t say you need to read ‘Talon’ to fully understand this book but I do think it would of helped me appreciate this book more if I had read the first one.

Without giving anything away, does the ending make you want to read the next in the series?
The ending was so action-packed and exciting that I didn’t even realise I had reached the end. I definitely want to find out what happens next.

What genre would you class the book as?
YA fantasy. Continue reading MP!er Katie shares her thoughts on the ‘action-packed ‘Rogue” by Julie Kagawa

Which book in the series did you read? 

I read both books in the series, ‘Talon’ and ‘Rogue’.

Describe the plot of the ‘Talon Saga’ in a tweet – less than 140 characters please!
Dragons and a ton of romance! A dragon world hide secrets that force a young dragon girl to rethink everything she knows about her world.

Talon book coverIf you read ‘Rogue’ do you feel that you need to read the first in the series ‘Talon’ to understand it fully?
Yes! I would definitely say that you have to read ‘Talon’ before you can read ‘Rogue’. ‘Talon’ sets up the story and the characters, and ‘Rogue’ continues the story, but has more action and suspense in it.

Without giving anything away, does the ending make you want to read the next in the series?
Yes! As I’ve already read ‘Talon’ and ‘Rogue’, I’m going to be on pins and needles waiting for the release of the next book, ‘Soldier’. I’m really excited to read it and see what’s next for Ember, Riley/Cobalt and Garrett!

Talon Saga: we found out what Literary-ly Obssessed is saying about Julie Kagawa killer follow up ‘Rogue’

We are totally in love with this explosive series. And it would seem that a lot of other people are too – no surprise.

‘Literary-ly Obsessed’ reviewed “Rogue”, the “killer follow up” in the Talon Saga.
Here’s her words:

Julie has done it again, not only has she written another fantastic series, she has created a killer follow up! First off this book picks up where “Talon” left off, which I loved as there was no unnecessary build up; you are thrown into Garret’s execution by St. George. Ember is at her best she’s fiery, stubborn and determined for a certain swoony solider not to be punished for saving her life.

‘Second Chance Summer': Author Morgan Matson names what she thinks is most important in a summer BFF

Here at MP!, we think best friends are some of the most important people you will ever meet – if not the most. There may not be another person in the whole world you will laugh or cry with, and there will probably be few else you’ll be willing to divulge all your deepest secrets and embarrassing stories to.

Author of ‘Second Chance Summer’ and ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’, Morgan Matson thinks having a BFF is a totally crucial aspect of your summer holidays too. Check out what she has to say about what you should be looking for in your summertime sidekick: Continue reading ‘Second Chance Summer': Author Morgan Matson names what she thinks is most important in a summer BFF

With Morgan Matson’s ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ just released, you might want another awesome summer read: ‘Second Chance Summer’

Heard of ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’? You really need to. Not only is it a fun, laugh-out-loud read, but it might just give you some inspiration for what you and your best mates could get up to over summer.

When Emily’s best friend Sloane disappears, the only thing she leaves behind is a totally ridiculous summer bucket list for wallflower Emily to complete – including tasks such as dancing ’til dawn, kissing strangers, and skinny dipping. Emily is in for a summer unlike any other – and she might just be able to track down her Sloane by the end of it. Really, you need to get your hands on this book ASAP.

Talon Saga: MORE people are totally loving ‘Rogue’, book 2 in this explosive series

If you loved ‘Talon’, then you really need to get your hands on book 2 in our new favourite, fire-breathing series, ‘Rogue’. Picking up directly where ‘Talon’ left off, ‘Rogue’ is the fast-paced, kick-ass sequel all Talon fans had been waiting for.

We had a look through some reviews, and found that a bunch of Kagawa followers felt the same way we did: ‘Rogue’ is a book you need on your bookshelf.

‘The Readers Corner’, for one, was loving the chapters focusing on Cobalt/Riley’s past, as did Anya from ‘An Awful Lot of Reading‘. Here at MP! we felt the same – we’re slowly falling for Riley the more we dig into his past. He’s just a big softie really – well, beneath all the fireproof scales and bad-ass persona. Trust us.
