Review #300: Going Down in Flames- Chris Cannon

Title: Going Down in Flames
Author: Chris Cannon
Series: Going Down in Flames #1
Pages: 407
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Summary: If her love life is going down in flames, she might as well spark a revolution.

Finding out on your sixteenth birthday you’re a shape-shifting dragon is tough to swallow. Being hauled off to an elite boarding school is enough to choke on.

Since Bryn is the only crossbreed at the Institute for Excellence, all eyes are on her, but it’s a particular black dragon, Zavien, who catches her attention.

Zavien is tired of the Council’s rules. Segregated clans, being told who to love, and close-minded leaders make freedom of choice almost impossible. The new girl with the striped hair is a breath of fresh air, and with Bryn’s help, they may be able to change the rules.

At the Institute, old grudges, new crushes, and death threats are all part of a normal day for Bryn. She’ll need to learn to control her dragon powers if she wants to make it through her first year at school. But even focusing on staying alive is difficult when you’re falling for someone you can't have.
Review: I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
As son as I saw this gorgeous cover I knew I had to read this book and on top of that, IT'S ABOUT DRAGON SHIFTERS!! Unfortunately the hard copy wasn't available to purchase at Utopya when I was there and meet the author but I managed to snag myself a review copy anyways. Going Down in Flames was Perfect! It contained humour, action and romance and of course DRAGON SHIFTERS!! Pure bliss if you ask me. I loved the magical boarding school setting with the whimsical town nearby for the characters to do "human things". I loved the social and political structures the author created. I need more! The characters are all amazing, even the bad guys I couldn't help but to love. I was almost exploding because of the sexual tension between Bryn and Zavien, finally despite the complications of it all I got a small release haha. I just love Bryn, she is one of the strongest females characters I have ever read about. I can't wait to see her learn and grow even more. Everyone needs t oread this.
