About the book
Royal twins ripped apart at birth become reluctant champions of good and evil.
Kylie, a teenage science geek, has no faith in people. Instead, she relies on what she trusts the most, the facts––what she can see, touch, and hear but never feel. With enough pain to deal with in her own world, she is thrust into another––a kingdom at war whose strange inhabitants fear one thing the most––the return of the dragon. All of this is illogical to Kylie, but even more so, when she discovers she belongs there.
Her brother, Prince Jarlon, journeys to kill the dragon who has laid waste to his kingdom. His only hope for destroying the beast is help from his sister, whom he has never met. Will their paths cross before the beast’s malevolence infects Kylie and turns her into his creature or will Jarlon have to destroy her, too?
Read an excerpt
“Hey, Kylie, you’ve been in the water for over an hour. Get out now! Something’s wrong.”
She ignored him. Her swim couldn’t have been an hour. She had just entered the pond. Propelling herself down again, she thought it silly that she’d always been ruled by her brain and had been clumsy and disconnected from her body. Always being the last person to be picked for a team, but not now. Sensations of water, skin, and muscle breathing together as one, consumed her usually dominant analytical mind. The deeper she dived, the more the energy intensified. The force seemed to coalesce into substance, as if there were a presence pulling her toward him.
“Welcome, little one. You have found one of my sources of power,” said the male Voice that had led her to the village. But this time he surrounded her. His deep timbre vibrated with the energy of the pond. “You have part of me inside you, so you, too, have access to this power.”
With each stroke, she felt the caress of water and fire.
“All you have to do is take it in,” the Voice said. “I had planned to wait until you reached the cave, but why? My power’s nice, isn’t it?”
She heard the delight in his voice. His words tickled inside her the same way bubbles in the water brushed her skin. She swam deeper.
“Yes,” the Voice cooed. “Join me. Release and meld into it. Don't let it just tease you on the outside. Open your mouth. Let me fill you up on the inside.”
It seemed so simple, just open her mouth. But her brain snapped back into control and would have none of it. She would die if she did that. The Voice didn’t offer joining, but drowning.
And I thought
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. The synopsis intrigued me so I thought I would give it a try. I am not sure
what I expected. But it was really good with a blend of
fantasy and contemporary it will keep you engaged and turning the pages.
There is lots of adventure and the characters draw you in.
I enjoyed this one very much.
I received a complimentary copy.
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
