While most students at Burtonwood Academy get to kill demons and goblins, fifteen-year-old Emma gets to rid the world of little annoying fairies with glittery wings and a hipster fashion sense. She was destined to be a dragon slayer, but cute and charming Curtis stole her spot.
The main character, Emma, was a really cool girl. She had humour, and was the best of her classmates at slaying supernatural beings. So, naturally she was devestated when she wasn't assigned to the most attractive job as a dragon slayer. Not only because she had most experience in that area, but mostly because her mother was a dragon slayer - until she was killed.
Not only one, but two surprising secrets were revealed near the ending - and they really took me by surprise. Well done, ms Ashby!
