Thank you, NetGalley, for offering this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Okay, that was… Bad. Like My Immortal but with dragons bad.

I originally chose this ARC of Firebolt by Adrienne Woods to read for a few reasons. 1) I was a new reviewer, trying to bolster my review rate, and it was available to read. 2) The synopsis sounded pretty cool! A girl learns dragons exist after a group of them kill her father, who has secretly also been a dragon all this time, and now she has to cope with this new reality—and this new world—she’s been thrown into. Yeah, sounds neat. 3) The rating for it on Goodreads was solid, and that site’s usually harsher than others, so I figured it was a safe bet that this would be an enjoyable read.

But I was wrong. So very wrong.
