Never judge a dragon
by her human cover…
Sixteen-year-old Kitty Lung has everyone convinced she’s a normal teen—not a secret government operative, not the one charged with protecting the president’s son, and certainly not a were-dragon. The only one she trusts with the truth is her best friend—and secret crush—the über-hot Bulisani Mathe.
Then a junior operative breaks Rule Number One by changing into his dragon form in public—on Kitty’s watch—and suddenly, the world knows. About dragons. About the Draconic Intelligence Command (DIC) Kitty works for. About Kitty herself.
Now the government is hunting down and incarcerating dragons to stop a public panic, and a new shape-shifting enemy has kidnapped the president’s son. Kitty and Bulisani are the last free dragons, wanted by both their allies and their enemies. If they can’t rescue the president’s son and liberate their fellow dragons before getting caught themselves, dragons might never live free again.
Dragons Are People, Too was a nice read. It was light, a bit action-packed and I had an overall good time reading it. This book is about were-dragons who are part of a secret society that work with the government to prevent terrorism. They go on secret missions depending on their abilities, and they constantly work hard to keep undiscovered from the human eye.
The story focuses on a young 16-year-old were-dragon named Kitty who has been assigned to protect the son of the US president, this is the reason why she has to pretend to be a normal teenager and go to high school. But after one of her trainees reveals themselves to the public eye and Jacob (the president’s son) is kidnapped, Kitty and her crush Sani, are forced to literally save him and the rest of the dragons.
I liked Kitty as a character. She was strong-minded and fiercely loyal. She also has a bit of a temper that comes with being a dragon, so she constantly struggles to keep her cool. But when it came to fighting and evading dangerous situations, Kitty always does a superb job. Even with some close calls.
This book also has a bit of romance between Kitty and her best friend, Sani. It’s a cute thing that develops slowly throughout the book. A few scenes between them certainly made me smile.
All in all, Dragons Are People, Too is a nice book to spend some time with. I do believe it’s written for the younger audience of YA since it does get childish at times (I wasn’t much of a fan of this), but if you’re into lighter reads or looking for a rec for a teen, this book just might be the one.
