Firebolt (The Dragonian Series #1) by Adrienne Woods

Elana Watkins is real tired of moving.  Every three months, her dad uproots up them and they move to another location.  He won't explain what he's running from, where her mother is, or why they need to keep moving.  All of a sudden, it's too late to explain... and the author allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Elana gets the shock of her life when the fairy tales her father told her growing up suddenly come true.  They are being attacked by dragons!  What's worse is that her father is a dragon, too.

When Elana wakes up, she's in another world.  She's been rescued by her father's friends and is on the other side of the wall in Paegeia, the dragon's world.  At first, she doesn't realize it.  Everyone is in human form and they are helping her heal.  They seem kind enough but finding out her father is dead is awful.  The worst part is she can't go home.  Once she's come into the dragon's world, she can't go back.  She knows no one (although that isn't much different than being on the run all the time) and she's not sure what is going to happen to her.  They are sending her to Dragonia Academy, which is an elite school for students who hope to tame their own dragons and become their masters or mates.

There's one little flaw with that.  Elana's father was a dragon and she has a mark so she's not like the others.  She can't become what they are studying to be.  So what is her calling in life?  She finds out sooner than she would like...

This was an entertaining read with lots of dragon lore, dark magic, and more with lots of bullying and crushes and usual school antics to go with it.  I enjoyed it.  There are more in this series and I'll be watching for those, too.  If you like dragons, I'm sure you'll like this book.
