Book Review. Hales Fire by Carl Harwood

A book about dragons.. or is it?
So often when people think of a sci-fi book they say "oh it's not for me". If they gave this book a go they would be pleasantly surprised.
Hale is an orphan accused of being an arsonist. He has been held in a mental institution since he was 14, days before he turns 18 he meets Valder and his whole life changes. He is asked to re-think his whole life, find out the truth about his parents death and deal with a life changing discovery.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a real page turner, I cared about the characters, cheered them on and felt their frustrations, and happiness. The ending was perfect and there is so much more that can become of many of the characters whether it be prequel, sequel or a complete spin-off series.
For me this is on par with "The Hunger Games" trilogy.
As the first in the series I can't wait for the next installment. Don't leave it as long as George RR Martin!
