Perkins crafts a tale full of adventure with "Dragon Flame." Humans left Earth and settled on the planet Numar. After living in peace for eighteen years, dragons attack the human settlements. With Talei's ability to talk to the dragons, can she stop the havoc they make?

The story opens with a pulse-pounding dragon attack. Talei and her brother, Byron, live in Maass, a human settlement on Numar. After the dragons destroy the village, Talei and the survivors set out to warn the other settlements. Unfortunately, they aren't able to stop the dragons.

Talei's group and the survivors from Deen set up a camp. A survivor named Zach takes over this settlement. Against Zach's wishes, Talei and her brother set out to warn the other communities. Along the way, Talei discovers she can mind talk with the dragons. They are held hostage by a group of goblins called the "Pundra," and are being forced to attack the humans.

Talei meets Adri on the way to Boon. He's willing to help her free the dragons from the Pundras' influence. After mind talking with a dragon name Rafur, Talei's group sets out to travel to the dragon's continent. The adventure draws Talei and Adri close. Will Talei and Adri's attraction prove a distraction as they set about their task to help the dragons?

Perkin's imagination soars with this adventure-filled story. Talei and Adri face many obstacles from the dragons, disbelief from their fellow humans, and an ocean. Perkin's writing is easy to read and the plot moves at a nice clip.

I enjoyed the rich back story of the dragons. They possessed many emotions that the reader can identify with - love, distrust, kindness, and curiosity. Perkins paints vivid pictures of the setting that resonate in the reader's mind.

Talei, while only eighteen, rises to the occasion. She's strong for the young ones, and makes balanced decisions. Her perseverance in the face of hardship and adversity is admirable.

Adri is determined and wants to do the right thing. He's sharp, full of gusto, and not afraid to brave the dangers he faces.

The story is geared for young adults with Adri and Talei sharing a kiss or two. Their romance grows slowly over the course of their adventure along with mutual trust and respect. "Dragon Flame" offers an adventure full of excitement, danger, and sweet romance.
