As the smallest dragon in the Heartstriker clan, Julius survives by a simple code: keep quiet, don't cause trouble, and stay out of the way of bigger dragons. But this meek behavior doesn't fly in a family of ambitious magical predators, and his mother, Bethesda the Heartstriker, has finally reached the end of her patience. Now, sealed in human form and banished to the DFZ--a vertical metropolis built on the ruins of Old Detroit--Julius has one month to prove he can be a ruthless dragon or kiss his true shape goodbye forever. But in a city of modern mages and vengeful spirits where dragons are considered monsters to be exterminated, he's going to need some serious help to survive this test. He only hopes humans are more trustworthy than dragons...… (meer)

WOW! Just. WOW! ( )

***Apparently third time read:Di 17 April 2018***
It's still good! I want to reread the whole series because the last book is out!

***Second time read: 21 August 2016***
I'm so glad to see that the second time around I still liked this book!

Although the title is a bit misleading. It has nothing to do with 'the friendzone'. Although he is friends with a woman he likes, he doesn't think she should sleep with him based on the attraction they feel for each other!. It has to do with his character. And yes he is truly a good person. ( )

Fun read. Nothing deep or complex, just cool characters and an interesting premise. ( )

Julius Heartstriker has a problem. Actually, he has a multitude of problems. His mother has gotten to the end of her rope with her very unsatisfactory son and has bound his magic and dropped him off in the DFZ to make something of himself or die. The clan seer has helped him a little; he's given him a phone and a small bank account -$98.02 to be exact. Julius has also been sent to his older brother Ian to do a small task for him.

Ian needs to find a dragon and send her back to her clan and he's given Julian a magical chain to bind her. He's also given Julius a very short time frame to get the task done. He needs a mage to put an illusion on him so that he can sneak into the party where the runaway dragon named Katya is going to be. He finds Marci who is on the run from Las Vegas with a magical object that some mobsters want. But her price is right and they become partners.

But Katya has already left the party by time they arrive and they need a new plan if Julian is going to save his neck.

The story is filled with magical creatures, plots inside of plots, and a growing friendship between March and Julius. It has great worldbuilding and intriguing characters. There is lots of action and intrigue and, despite what Julius's mother and the rest of the dragons think, nice dragons don't always finish last. ( )

Very enjoyable urban fantasy (with dragons!). I really liked the worldbuilding and character development in this book, and I'm excited to read more about the Heartstriker clan. I've also read the first two books in the DFZ series set several years after this series concludes, and so I'm curious to see how we get from this version of the DFZ to that one. ( )
