The "bones" of this story are really really good. While it won't be at the top of my list of recommendations to others, if someone were reading it, I'd still say I enjoyed it. I especially liked how she handled the "features" of the dragons. What I think could be better: 1. There needs to be balance between the battles and the romance. These books had more about the romantic relationships than I care for, and the characters had changes of heart that didn't "do it" for me. 2. The plots across the books were repetitive. 3. The detail on the battles improved in the last couple of books, but I'd like to have seen a bit more strategy, even if there is a twist at the end making it play out different than expected.

Bottom line, I read the entire series and will consider other books by this author.

I had high hopes for this book based on its description, but I had some problems with it. I loved the beginning with the fog surrounding the town and the mystery behind it, but I just couldn't connect with the characters. There was a disconnect between their words and their actions, and the dialogue didn't really flow very well. It felt a bit choppy. I liked the last 1/3 of the book better, but it still had problems.

Because I love the idea behind the book, I'm giving it 3/5 stars.

For hundreds of years, the orcs and humans of Doros have shared an uneasy peace. It shatters in an instant with the botched assassination of a human priest in the orc capital. Hell bent on revenge, the humans take up arms as the orc monarchy crumbles from outside interference.

Now Tace, the unlucky assassin, is on the run. It's soon clear, however, that her mistake hasn't only precipitated a war. It's unleashed ancient powers, the stuff of legends and fireside tales—and not the cozy kind.

Tace has always worked solo, but to save Doros, she'll need to assemble the unlikeliest allies. Together, they'll unravel the mysteries of the orcs' cult of death, and in the process, Tace will come to question everything she's ever believed. Only one thing is certain: a great destiny awaits her—if she can live long enough to meet it.

Chaos Awakens is an epic fantasy spanning multiple continents. Orcs, humans, elves, fauns, dwarves, and dragons fight for dominance in a new fantasy world sure to spark the imagination of fans of George R. R. Martin’s Song of Fire and Ice series and Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series. Written by USA Today bestselling author Megg Jensen, Chaos Awakens is the first novel in the new series Dragons of the Nether.

I loved it!! YA, Medieval feel to it and it's clean. I love when an author writes a story and doesn't rely on sex or horrid language to fill the pages. This is a great story that leaves me already putting the next in the trilogy on my wish list. :)
