SlayersSlayers by C.J. Hill

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dragons are not just mythical creatures. There are a few still alive and an evil man (a descendant of a Dragon Lord who inherited his powers to control dragons) is waiting for a few more eggs to hatch in order to take control of the United States government.

A select few pregnant women who carried descendants of the knights who fought the dragons years ago came near the eggs and the powers to fight dragons was awakened in the babies. These Slayers have been searched out and trained to help save their country.

Slayers focuses primarily on one Slayer, Tori. She's the daughter of a wealthy Senator, and has lived a privileged life. She has no idea why she is so interested in dragons, but jumps at the opportunity to go to a dragon camp one summer. It is at the camp that she learns who she really is, and the revelation is anything but the relief she hoped for.

This was a fun story with enjoyable characters, suspense, action, and some romance. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
