SLAYERS (SLAYERS #1) by C.J. Hil

Dragons exist. They’re ferocious. And they’re smart: Before they were killed off by slayer-knights, they rendered a select group of eggs dormant, so their offspring would survive. Only a handful of people know about this, let alone believe it – these “Slayers” are descended from the original knights, and are now a diverse group of teens that includes Tori, a smart but spoiled senator’s daughter who didn’t sign up to save the world.

The dragon eggs have fallen into the wrong hands. The Slayers must work together to stop the eggs from hatching. They will fight; they will fall in love. But will they survive?


First line:
"Mrs. Harriet Davis had never been afraid of dragons--until now."

Dragons. Knights. Slayers. 
Very cool premise of dragon slayers but there are no damsels in distress in this story. Tori can take care of herself, right down to getting her hair extensions. She's a spoiled, rich daughter of a senator who cares more about her clothes. 
She's sent to a special dragon camp where she hopes to overcome her fear/hate of dragons but what she finds at summer camp isn't what it seems. Sure, dragon fanatics go to camp, but unbeknownst to Tori, there is a second, hidden camp. One that trains dragon slayers. WHAT? Dragons are real? That is the truth Tori has to face as well as her abilities. 
I read this book in a day. It's a good, quick, clean read with great dialogue and good twists. 
The end of the book gets the reader ready for book #2.
