My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really interesting read! It was an interesting world, and story, and was very easy to read. The imagery and descriptions in this books were fantastic as well, I felt like I was right there with everything the characters did and went. The chapters were also pretty short, which made it a quick read. This is the first book I’ve read from this author before, and I really enjoyed it and hope to read more in the future!

I’m not usually one to read fantasy but I really enjoyed this book! I wish there was more action but I loved the dialogue. Slow burn but a page turner for me. Characters are loveable and having the dragon turn out to be nice? Who would’ve thought lol. Also the author does real well describing settings and I could easily picture everything going on inside my mind. I’m happy I gave this book a shot.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I started off very interested in reading this YA fantasy. However, I feel like it dragged throughout a lot of it and there was not a lot of character development. I was very confused in the beginning, but the author quickly explains what is happening. I would recommend this series for preteens-young teens.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An enjoyable YA fantasy story, and the first one in a new series, which kept me happily turning the pages. Rilla finds herself dressed in a flimsy dress, freezing and chained up, left out as a sacrifice for a dragon. She soon discovers that the dragon, Vidar is not what she expected, and is maybe not even a monster. However, Rilla is still not convinced that she wants to stay buried beneath the earth with the dragon, but she also doesn’t really have a choice. Meanwhile, her real enemy is still out there. I loved the strong, independent young woman, Rilla and thought she was a great main character, likeable and relatable. The storyline had me hooked throughout and the descriptive narrative brought the setting vividly to life, making me feel immersed in the story.

I want to start off saying that this is a YA book targeted for the YA audience. If you are looking for something darker or *spicier* this is not for you.
That being said, I really enjoyed this book. It’s the first book in the Dragonpets series and I’m excited to read the others. I liked the premise of the book; however, I feel like the author could have flushed out Rilla’s and Vidar’s characters a bit more along with the plot line. Again, the premise is there and I think there’s a lot that can be done with what R.L.S. Hoff has set up. This was a very quick read for me at less than 200 pages. There are romantic elements; however, they are very clean and age-appropriate. I would definitely recommend this YA book.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book started off really strong and I had really high hopes for it. Rilla was left as a sacrifice for a dragon, but it turns out that this wasn’t what the dragon wanted. The friendship that forms from these two was very interesting and unexpected. But it dragged in certain parts of the story between the two that I did not enjoy that much and took a lot of head space for me to finish thru it. the way thou Rilla build up confidence and independents in the story was very exciting. But I feel like this story was missing something which made it seem like pieces were missing out. I feel there should have been more character development and more climaxes or conflicts with the characters. Overall it’s an alright read especially for teens.

This was an interesting read with an original premise. I just wish it had a bit more depth to it. I liked Rilla and Vidar, and would have liked a bit more insight into their relationship developing. The conflict seemed to be resolved a bit too easily, both the purple dragon and later between Rilla and Vidar. I am intrigued by this series, and am curious about further stories

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book 1 in the Dragonpets series. This is a young adult fantasy adventure and it is definately a story that grips you from start to end. I really loved the lead character of Rilla. She is a very strong and determined young woman who takes things in her stride. She has suffered so much loss and her connection with Vidar was unexpected but so lovely to read.

Rilla lost her family and her home when a dragon attacked. The next thing she knows she is tied to a rock face waiting to be sacrificed to a dragon. The dragon who she is sacrificed to isn’t the same one responsible for her parents death and Vidar doesn’t want to eat her. As they go through their experiences together and try to stop the enemy their feelings and relationship grows.
Its beautiful watching their relationship progress and seeing just how far they are prepared to go to protect each other and their world

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thought this was such a sweet, romantic, and exciting story. Rilla was such a well written character and she was definitely feisty and not afraid to stand up to a dragon. Vidar the dragon was such a sweetheart, it was heartbreaking to learn his backstory and they he had been trapped in his dragon form. Rilla is supposed to be some sort of sacrifice for him, but instead they begin to form a bond and relationship. I thought it was adorable how they worked together to learn more about the evil dragon and grow together. I loved the ending and I am so excited to read the next book in the series!

I am obsessed with dragons so I had to read this book! The way it started, I was a bit confused but it quickly explained things and I absolutely fell in love with it. I loved how the bond between Rilla and Vidar developed, although I was hoping she would have admitted that she loved him. I thought she was a very determined and intelligent main character. I wish they would have explained why she started turning gold, but maybe that will be in book two. This author may very well end up being one who gets permanent real-estate on my bookshelf.
