Embers of Destruction by J. Scott Savage
This is the third and final book in the Mysteries of Cove series. After seeing what happened in Seattle, a group of six young explorers are flying their mechanical dragons to San Francisco with hopes of finding Kallista's missing father and any other Seattleites that might have survived. What they find is beyond their worst nightmares...
Shadow Mountain Publishing and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you). It will be published September 26th. That gives you time to read the first two books in the series if you haven't already.
They are trying to kill the dragons that attack them as they travel. Now they attempt to create a plan for attack in the morning on the ones that got away just ahead of them. More than one idea emerges. No one person is the leader but they need one or they'll be picked off by getting too far away from the others. They choose Trenton as their leader but he's not comfortable with it. It's a good thing the other team members can help him.
As they go over the mountains to get the dragons, they see a big city below them. The people invite them to land. When they do, dragons start coming out of the towers. They just barely escape. The dragons kill humans. Why would these humans help the dragons?
They land on Alcatraz and find Kallista's father. She's very happy. Trenton is not so sure. He's right to have his suspicions. The white dragon in tower in San Francisco is using mind control on the humans, including Kallista's father.
You learn where the dragons originated, how they evolved, and how they set themselves up as superior beings. There's lot of deaths and destruction before this story is over. It's exciting enough I almost forgot to breath as I was nearing the end. I liked this series. Why don't you give it a try?
