Review:


I  was super excited when I received a copy for an honest review because I LOVE Dragons and enjoy a good apocalyptic read. I couldn't wait to see how she meshed the two together. 

Aelana is a half-human, half-dragon hybrid, that travels the universe destroying dying planets so that they may heal from the damage the inhabitants have caused, is heading home after 500 years to bring the apocalypse to her former home. She can't help but wonder what lies in wait for her- have they remembered her after all these years or have they forgotten about her sacrifice, and what changes have occurred since she was last there. Join Aelana on her journey as she travels back to the place she once called home.

Aelana is the main character in Wucaii and the story is told from her point of view and through flashbacks from Aelana's past. I really enjoyed getting a look at Aelana's past and what events led up to her being transformed into a half-dragon, half-human hybrid and also loved the way that the flashbacks weren't told in the order in which they happened but in an order that went along with the current situation that caused Aelana to reminisce. She goes through such an array of emotions and Pembroke Sinclair did a wonderful job in having you feel Aelana's emotions as if they were your own. From the first chapter I was instantly invested in the story and what was going to happen. 

Kalen is police officer in the town that Aelana used to live in, and she runs into him while she is at the museum that was once the old castle in her town. Kalen instantly feels that he has a strong connection with Aelana and she knows who Kalen used to be the moment that she meets him and why there is that feeling of a connection but is afraid to tell him the truth because of past experience. 

In all good apocalyptic reads there is a villain that always complicates things and Pembroke Sinclair doesn't disappoint with the villain in Wucaii. I won't spoil who the villain is but will say I was utterly surprised as to how the events involving the villain played out. 


Wucaii is a well paced, captivating read that you're sure to remember. I highly recommend it to any and all YA readers.
