author Julie Kagawa.
When forced to choose between safety with the dragon organisation, Talon, and being hunted forever as an outcast, Ember Hill chooses to stand with Riley and his band of rogue dragons rather than become an assassin for Talon. She's lost contact with her twin brother, Dante, a Talon devotee, as well as Garret, the former-enemy soldier who challenged her beliefs about her human side and who she now shares a deep bond with. Ember is also struggling with the powerful and stirring nature of her inner dragon. Combined with the recent deaths and the deceit and guilt that have been tormenting her since joining Riley, she is worryingly withdrawing into herself, while a fiery anger rages inside of her. Riley understandably is concerned that Ember is struggling to cope with the recent chaotic events and what is ahead for the rogue gang – never a good sign for a young dragon being pushed further to the edge…
While Ember battles with her emotions and her inner dragon, Garret journeys alone to the United Kingdom, birthplace of the ancient and secret Order of St. George. Here he heads straight to the home of the Patriarch, the head of the Order of St George, to spy on his former brothers where he uncovers deadly and shocking secrets that will shake the foundations of dragons and dragon-slayers alike. The rogue dragons will need Garret's skills and insider knowledge of the Order to negotiate an impossible deal - and if they fail, there will be no way to stop all-out war.
Soldier is a heart-pounding modern adventure, set on both sides of the Atlantic, full of secret societies, forbidden love and dragons!
