In 2018, I read the Talon saga by Julie Kagawa. I wanted to finish this series before the year was over and I managed. Today you can find my mini reviews of the last two books in this series.
LegionLegion by Julie Kagawa

Series: Talon #4
The legions are about to be unleashed, and no human, rogue dragon or former dragon slayer can stand against the coming horde.
Dragon hatchling Ember Hill was never prepared to find love at all--dragons do not suffer human emotions--let alone the love of a human and a former dragonslayer, at that. With ex-soldier Garret dying at her feet after sacrificing his freedom and his life to expose the deepest of betrayals, Ember knows only that nothing she was taught by dragon organization Talon is true. About humans, about rogue dragons, about herself and what she's capable of doing and feeling.
In the face of great loss, Ember vows to stand with rogue dragon Riley against the dragon-slaying Order of St. George and her own twin brother Dante--the heir apparent to all of Talon, and the boy who will soon unleash the greatest threat and terror dragonkind has ever known.
Talon is poised to take over the world, and the abominations they have created will soon take to the skies, darkening the world with the promise of blood and death to those who refuse to yield.
This book was pretty decent. There were some plot twist and we finally got to know Talons plans. However, the battle in the end felt a little rushed. The book read really quick as well, just like the others in this series do.
InfernoInferno by Julie Kagawa

Series: Talon #5
TODAY, WE STRIKE BACK.
WE SHOW TALON THAT WE WILL NEVER ACCEPT THEIR NEW WORLD.
Ember Hill has learned a shocking truth about herself: she is the blood of the Elder Wyrm, the ancient dragon who leads Talon and who is on the verge of world domination. With the Order of St. George destroyed, Ember, Riley and Garret journey to the Amazon jungle in search of one who might hold the key to take down the Elder Wyrm and Talon—if they can survive the encounter.
Meanwhile, Ember’s brother, Dante, will travel to China with a message for the last Eastern dragons: join Talon or die. With the stakes rising and the Elder Wyrm declaring war, time is running out for the rogues and any dragon not allied with Talon.
The final battle approaches. And if Talon is victorious, the world will burn.
For the final book in this series, Inferno felt a little dragging. In my opinion, this series became too long and the end was pretty predictable. Still a 5-star read.
Oops, my reviews are very very short, but there is not much to say about these books actually. They are good and fun to read. I had a good time reading this series and that’s the most important thing I guess.
