    She’s been on the run her whole life, everyone wants her dead but no one will tell her why. If Mei Walker makes it to her twentieth birthday, she’ll discover the secret behind The Earthbound’s relentless pursuit, because that’s when supernaturals come into their full power. The truth is The Earthbound have made a mistake and she’s going to prove them wrong. This urban fantasy has some fascinating and different elements that engage readers right from the start, for one thing most of the story is o She’s been on the run her whole life, everyone wants her dead but no one will tell her why.

This urban fantasy has some fascinating and different elements that engage readers right from the start, for one thing most of the story is one big suspense gripping and adrenaline pumping chase with epic battles as Mei runs from her attackers. The plot is fast paced and full of strong, captivating characters all of which seem to have hidden agendas and their own endgames which leaves Mei with few to trust. The more Mei discovers, the more she has to wonder if anybody really knows what they are talking about and readers can’t help but become caught up in this exhilarating, secret keeping experience that is full of betrayals and unexpected twists that keeps readers on edge.

    Decent Fast moving and action packed urban fantasy that jumps from moment to moment, barely slowing then to breathe or let the heroine consider her situation. As passengers to her adventure, we witness the highs and lows that smack her, including the gut wrenching realization that trust is far too fragile in this world. Pros: - Intriguing concept. - Plot moves at a quick clip. - I like the FMC... I think. Hard to tell. Very little introspection. Cons: - her dad? Ugh. Just ugh.

    I purchased Hidden Dragon during a .99 cent promotion. A good story line with a lot of fighting action and running/hiding from the enemy. Some surprises and plot twists kept me reading. Not quite a cliffhanger, as the book ends in a good place, but it's obvious there is more to to story. Not sure I'll continue reading as I prefer more proactive heroines, rather than ones who are reactive once caught.

    Nice try but a fail.. The plot sounded interesting plus the mc being able to fight should have made this book awesome except it was poorly executed. Too repetitive storyline and the mc constantly got beaten up or taken prisoner. No romance whatsoever. There was one kiss which was dry without chemistry. Got boring after awhile. No characters development. What a disappointment. Can't continue on this series. Same plot for book two with the mc getting cornered and being taken prisoner again. Nice try but a fail..

    3 & 1/2 stars rounded up. This was a decent read, it hooked me into the story pretty quickly and had me reading until I was done with just a few breaks. The flow was sort of a rollercoaster ride, it would be fast & furious in places & others dragged on. There were a lot of places that could have used more info as to what was going down, I think this would have helped the story solidify for me. It's definitely a very, very slow burn.

If it weren't for the single kiss, I might have thought that this wasn't even going to have romance. Mei was an interesting character, for being so prepped for worst case scenarios all her life, I kept thinking she was doing stupid things that made no sense for the amount of special training her mentor/handlers gave her to survive. I few times I didn't like her very much, and I really felt I didn't learn much about who she is by the end other than she can sometimes kick butt, and has been on the run for her whole life & is a dragon. Seth, well he seems to mostly be the strong silent type who thought this job would not help his career advance, I didn't really learn a lot about him in this book to decide how I feel about him in the end. The end was definitely a cliff-hanger. So I'm not sure I liked this enough to continue on with the series. I'll have to give that some consideration.

    Cliffhanger Alert! This is the first in a series about Mei, who has lived her entire life in protective custody, where apparently people from a group called the Earthbound are trying to kill her. When a new agent is assigned to her protective team, things come to a head. Mei has to live until her twentieth birthday, but no one wants to tell her why. It’s a complicated story, and I don’t want to spoil it, but I shall say a few things: It’s a fast paced, well written trip, but a lot of what’s going on Cliffhanger Alert!

That’s not to say it’s bad or that you don’t learn anything, because the truth is that it’s actually very good, and some BUT not ALL of the secrets are revealed. If you enjoy fantasy or urban fantasy with hidden heroes, secretive backgrounds and more, you’ll enjoy this one.

    A surprisingly enjoyable Urban Fantasy gem. It's not perfect - but it has more than enough going for it to draw me in and allow me to overlook a few things. Put it this way, at 75% of the way into the book I found myself buying the next 2 books in the series. :D The characters are the most interesting. The concepts in the worldbuilding are intriguing and the pacing is fast. I couldn't help but notice the odd missing words or incorrect words here and there that were missed in editing - but they can b A surprisingly enjoyable Urban Fantasy gem.

    Great Read I got into this book on the first page. The characters are great and the plot moves along in a relatively smooth manner. Mei is a compelling character. She is competent, strong, has magic yet is young and missteps some of the time. Their is some potential love interest with Seth. She has many perils to overcome in her struggle to find herself. Is she or is she not a Dragon. I'm definitely moving on to her next book Searching Dragon immediately. Great Read I got into this book on the first page.

    Mei Mei has been in protective custody since a child. Someone is always after her, but no one has ever told her why. She has some supernatural powers and water magic, but nothing special. Her trainers teach her to protect herself and they are always on the move. Her 20 th birthday will be soon, and they hint that she will come into her powers then. She is captured and told she will become a dragon......

    Comming of age book I enjoyed this story only a few things that didnt flow but easy to explain away the story of our heroine is interesting the support characters have enough of a back story and the villains are believable. Unfortunately she does leave the ending as a cliff hanger. But the most important questions are answered. So it makes you interested in reading the next one

    Mei has been in hiding all her life. Is she the dragon everyone thinks she is or is she just a decoy? Is agent Seth on her side? Will she get free from her tormentors? This was a very exciting story with strong unique characters. I loved everything but the cliffhanger! Can’t wait to read the next book!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was such a frustrating read. You’re telling me this girl spent 19 years on the run, hiding, with paranoid guards yet a smile is enough to convince her someone is innocent? You’re telling me she *knows* exactly who her enemies are but she willingly shows off her hidden skills?? Just the level of stupidity astounds me. If there was ever a character that was tstl it’s this one 😭

    This is a fun read! Trudi has created a world where magic and dragons are intensely desired by rogue government agencies. This story has all the complexities of a Tom Clancy novel with magic as an added ingredient.

    Cliffhanger It’s a cliffhanger. I consider stories that end in a cliffhanger lazy writing. If it’s a good story and you are a good writer that alone should keep your audience coming back for more.

    What? What's going to happen to Mei? Poor girl, running from the bad guys. Not sure what she is. Lots of action and suspense. What? What's going to happen to Mei? Poor girl, running from the bad guys. Not sure what she is. Lots of action and suspense.

Suddenly, Mei finds she must use all the fighting and evasion skills her guardians have taught her to survive alone in a hostile world with only a new field agent for protection. She must quickly figure out why she's been hunted and outfight or outsmart a powerful organization determined to kill her. Mei is plucky and persistent. She spends most of book lost and confused. Her allies are unreliable so she can't just wait to be rescued. A good first book. Nothing that readers of the genre haven't seen before but well written and entertaining.

    I loved every aspect of this book. Normally as I read, my mind wanders to what I would do differently, but not with Trudi Jaye's writing. I also recommend reading her Magic Carnival series! Mei is one of my favorite female characters. She is tough and I enjoyed seeing how she handled herself in every scene. Seth's character is so well-written. I love his attitude at first and watching the development of their relationship over time. I can't wait to find out what happens next! I would kill to have a I loved every aspect of this book.
