Title: EMBRACING THE DRAGON
Author: K.L. Bone
Pub. Date: August 2018
Publisher: K.L. Bone
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Can a human heart withstand the flames of a dragon’s soul? For centuries, the dragons of Kalleen have ruled the skies. Blessed by the goddess of fire, those born of her power are destined to exist within two worlds, while fully belonging to neither.
As the youngest daughter of the dragon queen, Amelia has always been torn between her humanity and winged form. In meeting Stephen, she found a blossoming love that gave her hope of finding balance.
A dream destroyed when her sister, and future queen, sets her sights upon the same man.
Forced from her lover’s side, Amelia embraces a self-imposed exile, taking refuge in the northern mountains. In this new life of solitude, she banishes painful memories by retreating to her dragon form, sheltering the wounded girl within.
Yet it is an isolation that cannot last, as the new dragon queen’s cruelty bears down upon the kingdom, allowing an ancient enemy to rise. Drawn from her banishment by the pleas of friends, Amelia must choose. Will she embrace the destructive beast within? Or draw upon the frail humanity that lingers dimly in her soul, in a desperate attempt to help her people, and mend a broken heart?
What an amazing story with great character details! Amelia’s story is heart wrenching and hard to read about, but when we look closely you can see the similarity within our own dynamics as people. There is greed, heart ache, and recovery that comes from all of us.
I certainly don’t want to give anything away from this story as there are lots of important details, but it was amazing! There are a few “adult” scenes through out the love story of Amelia and Stephen, so I don’t know that I would recommend this for school age, but it’s not too detailed either.
