Never judge a dragon
by her human cover...

Sixteen-year-old Kitty Lung has everyone convinced she’s a normal teen—not a secret government operative, not the one charged with protecting the president’s son, and certainly not a were-dragon. The only one she trusts with the truth is her best friend—and secret crush—the ├╝ber-hot Bulisani Mathe.

Then a junior operative breaks Rule Number One by changing into his dragon form in public—on Kitty’s watch—and suddenly, the world knows. About dragons. About the Draconic Intelligence Command (DIC) Kitty works for. About Kitty herself.

Now the government is hunting down and incarcerating dragons to stop a public panic, and a new shape-shifting enemy has kidnapped the president’s son. Kitty and Bulisani are the last free dragons, wanted by both their allies and their enemies. If they can’t rescue the president’s son and liberate their fellow dragons before getting caught themselves, dragons might never live free again.

My Opinion

Kitty was raised with a secret- a pretty big secret. You see instead of the gossiping loving care-free sixteen year old girl that she shows the public, she is something different. She is part of a secret government agency the DIC and she has been assigned to protect the president’s son, Jacob. Jacob doesn’t know her secret, I mean come on she is a sixteen year old girl. Do you really think a girl could protect the president’s son? Hmm… no? Well, what if that girl was not just a trained government agent but also a dragon?

Jacob is kidnapped on the same day that the public finds out about dragons and panic ensues. The president has to promise the public that he will protect them from the dragons. To do this, he rounds up all of the dragons that he can find. Most of them already government agents. Kitty now not only has to save Jacob but also her parents, friends and co-workers. This is a lot of stress on a gal. At least her crush Sani is with her, and yes there is a bit of romance.

Kitty has the type of personality that people flock to.  She is easy-going, fun loving on the outside. She plays her cards close to the vest and rarely do people know much about her.  Partly because of how she is raised and partly because of what she is.  Her romantic relationship with Sani has been a long time coming, although others couldn't see it.  Sani is a different kinda love interest.  He is not an alpha male- but instead the sweet understanding beta.  He gives Kitty the room she needs to make the decisions that she has to make.  While he does speak his mind he trust in her leadership.

Dragons Are People, Too is a different kind of paranormal tale. Vampires are so last week and werewolves…over it. Dragons are the newest and hottest things around. Or they will be, especially if they breathe fire. Will Kitty save Jacob and the other dragons? Will Sani and Kitty kiss? These are all questions that are answered in the book. Looking for something different? Go on and one-click away. I promise you won’t regret it.

My Rating 4 out of 5 stars

Favorite Quote Number One rule of an operative for the Draconic Intelligence Command: Don’t let anyone know what you are.
