It is all Zane asks of Danica-and all they ask of their people-but it may be more than she can give.

All right, what do we have here? It manages to incorporate them all successfully and in a way that both instructs and entertains. Rhodes does an excellent job of not only describing her characters, but endearing them to us also.

Every time I remember again why I love this book. It was such a fun fantasy story I enjoyed every minute of it. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Now, don’t get me wrong, the emotional plot is certainly interesting. They are passionate and sometimes violent, the complete opposite of the avians. It is a lot, I know; it isn’t easy to give. But, with the two newest rulers, they find peace and realize they are not so different. Zane is woefully underdeveloped. Destined to take her mother’s place haawksong ruler of the Avian people, Danice knows too well the challenges she will face concerning the war her people have been fighting for generations against the Serpiente people across the land.


Alright, maybe I put it overly dramatically, but the importance of this book is hawksony real and I suggest everyone pick it up.

I am haksong sure she would have tried to finish what she started – she strikes me as that sort of person, but whatever. Return to Book Page. The cause of the war is lost to time not a cop-out on the author’s part – we get an explanation in Falcondancebut the two sides are ready for peace. I really enjoyed this one.

Both the hawks and cobras share different traditions and as Zane and Danica grow to fall in love with one another, they also learn to assimilate their cultures and their people. This book is actually very difficult to rate!

Dancia is a beautiful yet tough queen. But unlike Mockingjaywhich preaches against war by showing its horrors not that this was ineffectiveHawksong preaches against war by showing the contrast and beauty of peace.

Amelia was a year old prodigy when her first book got published and I enjoyed her take on vampires far more than Stephanie Hawmsong ‘s. I loved the main character Danica.


Plus, there’s a mysterious assassin among them.

Will their dream survive? They’re scared of each other, but they have nothing to be afraid of.

I cannot believe that Danica hswksong abandon all this for Zane. I liked this so much. Can’t wait to get my hands in the next volume of this sotry Snakcharm: Dancia is an avian shapeshifter, heir to the throne, whose people are at war with Amelia Atwater-Rhodes is only 21 and has already published seven books.

I’m a sucker for these plot lines because I love everything about it from the convergence of drastically different cultures to the bitterness each side must bite down for the same of unity.

I don’t know what else to say except that I loved, love it, and will love it forever and ever.
