I enjoyed the entire series, not just for the dragons and desert/pseudo-Egyptian setting, but because it was different from her Heralds series.

My books on this series are like new, only read once. I tried to get my boys (12 year old twins) interested, but they are more into Percy Jackson and Alex Rider at the moment. (when they don't want to write their own stories lol)
