About the book:
A kingdom divided cannot stand. For those caught in the middle, it means death.
For centuries humans and dragons existed side by side in Alveria, bonded by their care of one another. But no longer. After decades with no viable eggs, humans far outnumber dragons, and the survival of the species appears bleak. The outlook for everyday humans is little better as rogue dragons raid and torment villages. Yet it’s far worse for the tamers, beaten and killed simply for serving the noble dragons.
But eking by at the bottom of Alverian society isn’t any easier for seventeen-year-old Kaelan Younger. Harder still when her loyalty to the dragon crown is no secret. But when her dying mother reveals a horrifying truth about her identity, Kaelan is thrust into a world for which she is ill prepared. Faced with a new life at the proving grounds for humans and dragons alike, Kaelan must reconcile not just her past but embrace the future laid out before her. When her responsibilities as an Akademy tamer collide with her feelings for a powerful dragon shifter, it will take everything she has to prepare for the danger threatening them both. The fate of the dragons she has sworn to serve rests in her hands.
Now Kaelan is no longer an outsider. She’s the enemy.
I love any story that involves dragons and old magic, so this was a treat.
It also helps that Kaelan is a young determined woman who is more than her social status and is as kind as she is fearless in battle. I got to read this book courtesy of Netgalley and now I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
My take on it:
If you are looking for a fast paced adventure into the world of dragons through the eyes of a young girl who is seen as an outcast, then Get the book on: Amazon
