Zoë Sorensson is perfectly normal, except she's been told she's destined for great things. Zoë's the one female dragon shapeshifter of her kind. But Zoë is at the bottom of the class when it comes to being Pyr and her powers are AWOL, so she's sent to a Pyr boot camp.
Zoë quickly realizes that she has to master her powers yesterday, because the Pyr are in danger and boot camp is a trap. The Mages want to eliminate all shifters and the Pyr are next in line-unless Zoë and her friends can work together and save their own kind.

 WINGING IT (Dec '11) 
Zoë Sorensson yearns to come into her powers as the only female dragon shifter. But being part of two worlds is more complicated than she expected. It’s bad enough that she’s the target of the Mages’ plan to eliminate all shifters—she also has to hide her true nature from her best friend Meagan, a human. For her sixteenth birthday, all Zoë wants is one normal day, including a tattoo and a chance to see hot rocker Jared.
Instead, the Pyr throw her a birthday party but ban Meagan from attendance, putting Zoë in a tight spot. Things get even worse when Zoë is invited to the popular kids’ Halloween party and Meagan’s left out. Zoë knows the party is a trap laid by the host, an apprentice Mage. When Meagan gets a last-minute invite, Zoë must save the day—and her best friend—without revealing her fire-breathing secrets…
 Deborah makes her home in Canada with her husband. When she isn't writing, she can be found knitting, sewing or hunting for vintage patterns. Deborah Cooke has always been fascinated with dragons, although she has never understood why they have to be the bad guys. She has an honors degree in history, with a focus on medieval studies. She is an avid reader of medieval vernacular literature, fairy tales and fantasy novels, and has written over thirty romance novels under the names Claire Cross and Claire Delacroix.

Oh I enjoy dragons too. Looks like I so need to pick up this book. Great list!

Shy said...

Ooh, dragons, That's pretty exciting! I love that "The Hobbit" made it on the list above. I just purchased the dramatise version of the audiobook and my gosh, I'm in love! Who knows listening to a book can be that exciting!?

Jenny said...

There is definitely an overlying dragon theme here with this list:) I haven't read too many books about dragons outside of Firelight and Dragon Bound and I loved both of those so I look forward to trying Flying Blind!

Lots of oldies but still goodies. Lets see the only one I've read is The Hobbit and that was years ago before the LOTR movies came out.

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

Okay, I feel like a complete loser because I haven't read any of these! *be's full of fail*

Dragons are pretty freaking ninja though. Or would it be ninjas that are pretty freaking dragon? Which came first?

Nic @ Irresistible Reads said...

Like Missie I haven't read any either! The only dragon book I have read is Firelight and I enjoyed it. Must add Flying Blind to my list :)
