On one side of the border lies the modern world: the internet, homecoming dances, cell phones. On the other side dwell the ancient monsters who spark humanity's deepest fears: dragons.

Seventeen-year-old Kay Wyatt knows she's breaking the law by rock climbing near the border, but she'd rather have an adventure than follow the rules. When the dragon Artegal unexpectedly saves her life, the rules are abruptly shattered, and a secret friendship grows between them.

But suspicion and terror are the legacy of human and dragon inter-actions, and the fragile truce that has maintained peace between the species is unraveling. As tensions mount and battles begin, Kay and Artegal are caught in the middle. Can their friendship change the course of a war?

In her young-adult debut, New York Times bestselling author Carrie Vaughn presents a distinctly twenty-first-century tale of myths and machines, and an alliance that crosses a seemingly unbridgeable divide.

Our customer reviews

Seventeen-year-old Kay enjoys hiking, climbing, talking on her cell phone, and spending time with a dragon. Yes, a dragon. In Vaughn's brilliant combination of modern day convenience and old world fantasy, VOICES OF DRAGONS pulls the reader into a believable tale of one girl and a dragon against the evil machinations of an intolerant government. Though I guessed where the story was going, I still enjoyed the journey. I had no trouble believing dragons and cell phones could exist together and completely fell in love with the imagination Vaughn displayed in this novel. However, I did have one huge problem - the ending. It ended without resolution. Nothing was certain, things were on shaky ground, and the characters were about to begin a whole new adventure I wasn't even sure would work. I wanted more. This could have been the intention all along to set up for a sequel, but it made me angry, frustrated, and I felt cheated to be left with no certainties at the end. Would they be accepted? Would there be war? Had they fixed anything? I have no idea! Will I read the next book? You bet! I have to know what happened, but I feel Vaughn should have given us a better ending by at least resolving (for certain) one of the major issues left hanging at the end of this book.show more

Voices of Dragons is an amazing story. Not your standard dragon... human sort of book. Carrie Vaughn has been very clever almost adding and creating a history between dragons and humans... something that could be believable but at the same time not. Theres friendship between two different species which is forbidden which makes the bond that they have even more enchanting. There's also loss and an element of teenage angst which again adds to the individualism of the book and the story. I feel the def downer is the ending because it is left on such a cliff hanger but Carrie Vaughn has said she has an idea for a sequel so i dont think we shall be disappointed. However some people might find it slow at points but personaly i didnt. Overal a fantastic book and one i really couldnt put down =)show more
