ABOUT THIS BOOK
Meet the shapeshifting dragons of Hong Kong. Adept at passing for human, they are the kind of dragons you'd find at a Gatsby party—charming, sophisticated, glamorous, outrageously wealthy—and utterly ruthless.
Nothing, it seems, can challenge their privileged lives—until Lady Feng leaves one of her eggs to be raised by human foster parents in a remote mountain village.
The dragon child hatches. Born with dragon power, raised with human emotion, this child is trouble. And his powers are growing . . .

I really liked this book. Amazing story and crash between human and dragon ways of emotions and how they use them. Scared for the ones around the creepy, angry main just waiting for things to explode. Good writing, cool story and I'm looking forward reading it's continuation.
