Friends and Traitors By C.J. Hill|Review

Friends and Traitors (Slayers #2)
Published by Feiwel & Friends on October 15th, 2013
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Pages: 400
Format: Hardcover

The Slayers – teens who have powers to fight dragons—are back by popular demand in this high-octane sequel, now with a new cover package! Tori is at a White House dinner party when she hears a horrifying sound: dragon eggs hatching. It means in less than a year, the dragons will be mature and dangerous. The Slayers are well-trained, but their group is not yet complete, and Tori is determined to track down Ryker Davis, the mysterious Slayer who has yet to surface. What Tori doesn’t bargain for, however, is the surprising truth about her powers: she isn’t a Slayer after all, but a Dragon Lord, with a built-in predisposition to protect dragons, not kill them. How will she overcome this to save the lives of her friends?

My Thoughts

Even better than the first book! With new challenges and old foes, Tori and her friends must reach Ryker before Dirk. Filled with even more action, suspense, and dragons, this book will not disappoint! The desperation for Tori and Dirk to just get together could not be any more real! You can definitely see how the two feel for each other, but their own personal insecurities, family, and friends approval continuously destroy the possibility. I love the internal conflicts between Tori and Dirk. Oh and Jesse too. I love how there are multiple flaws with each of the characters and not just one character will all of the flaws. Although, I’m not a huge fan of love triangles, mainly because they are an overused trope and always leave me disappointed or uninterested. However, I completely okay with this one. Jesse and Dirk are complete opposites, yet share some common traits. And just how they interact and care for Tori really tells you something about their characters. Besides the wavering love triangle, this book contains an incredible amount of action and suspense. I love books that will get your heart pounding as if you were wanting a movie or going for a job. I’d defiantly see this if it were made into a movie! I can't wait for the next one!
