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.
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
I love dragons, and the idea of dragon shifters is awesome. Put dragon in the title, and I'm bound to read it sooner or later. Dragons Are People, Too is a fast-paced thrill ride featuring a sixteen-year-old dragon working for a secret government organization of dragon shifters.
I really liked Kitty. She was so tough, having trained for her job since she was four. But she also showed emotion and weakness at times which made her seem real. Kitty was a Chinese dragon, but her organization also had African and English dragons. Seriously, dragons galore in this novel. I found the romantic interest, Bulisani (great name BTW) quite intriguing. Definitely some diversity in this read with the female lead a Chinese dragon, and the romantic interest an African dragon.
I enjoyed the author's writing style-- lots of shorter sentences during the action scenes led to more tension. And there were some great action scenes. I also appreciated the fast pace. In addition, the romance, though built slowly, was rather sweet once it got going. Not so thrilled about the lack of ending, but series are so popular nowadays, and it's really hard to have a concrete ending between books. So just keep that in mind if you hate non-endings.
Overall, this is a fun, high-action story, with great characters and a sweet romance. Perfect for a YA audience.
