drey's thoughts:
I love Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville series. So when she wrote a new book, I had to eventually get my hands on it.

Voices of Dragons takes place in a world much like ours. Much, except for the fact that WW2 was between humans and dragons, and the current-day world has borders and a very uneasy peace between humans and dragons. When Kay Wyatt falls into the river on the dragon side of the border, she is unexpectedly rescued by one. Then she finds out that he speaks English, that he reads, and that he would like to be friends. And so she starts sneaking off to visit her new friend--not telling anybody.

However, on one of their excursions together, they're seen by a human pilot. All of a sudden the military's sending planes into the dragon side of the border. And stalking Kay. And next thing you know, it's war.

Carrie Vaughn's characters in Voices of Dragons are not complex--about the only drama here is whether Kay's ready to date her best friend Jon. However, the world is interesting, and I do want to know more, so I will definitely be picking up any sequels.

This sounds interesting, but I can't imagine humans beating dragons in a war.
