From Goodreads:

Danica Shardae is an avian shapeshifter, and the golden hawk’s form in which she takes to the sky is as natural to her as the human one that graces her on land. The only thing more familiar to her is war: It has raged between her people and the serpiente for so long, no one can remember how the fighting began. As heir to the avian throne, she’ll do anything in her power to stop this war—even accept Zane Cobriana, the terrifying leader of her kind’s greatest enemy, as her pair bond and make the two royal families one.

Trust. It is all Zane asks of Danica—and all they ask of their people—but it may be more than she can give.

For me, this is one of those books that you can read over and over again. I read this book when I’m sad, mad, lonely, and happy. When I travel (long distance) I like to bring a book with me just in case I can’t use my phone or any other electrons, and it’s always this one.

I picked up this book in 2010 at the National Bookstore in Bacolod Philippines. I’ve taken it to California, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, and every other trip I’ve gone on since buying it. When I move, and I’ve moved many times in the last 3 years, it’s the first thing I pack. I even took it to college with me. Hawksong is the kind of book that I have literally read more than 100 times and I can never get bored of it.

It is a story about sacrifice, love, and war. I am seriously in love with it.

What can I say that will give this story justice?

There’s a war, between avian and serpiente, and it’s been going on since the beginning of their societies. So long that neither side remembers why the war was started. There is two emerging leaders, one hawk and one cobra. They have lost and suffered so much because of this bloody war, and are willing to trade anything and everything for peace.
