Pirates, dragons, mermaids. Embark on a coming of age journey that will leave you breathless.
Prophecy says that the half-blood dragon will destroy the world – some might be looking forward to it.
A lady-in-waiting’s job is to follow orders. For Rowen, it is to execute her stepfather’s plan to elevate the family’s station by an advantageous marriage to the crown prince. Intrigue and seduction fill Rowen’s days, but the prophecies that haunt her dreams at night warn her that death awaits. The taunts of her sleepless nights are realized when she is framed and sentenced to death for the prince’s murder.
For a human, there’s nowhere to run and no one to turn to in a kingdom where power is tightly held by full-blooded dragon shifters. It will take a stranger from the shadows to save Rowen from execution and reveal a truth full of terrifying potential. It is time for Rowen to find the courage to accept her fate, awaken her gift, and set the world on fire.
Change is coming. So is a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world.
I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first book in the Dragon Born series. In this series we are following Rowen, a woman who is part human and part dragon. Being a half-blood, she is seen as lesser than full-blood dragons, people who can shift between their human and dragon form. She is a lady in waiting in Withrae and while at the castle, she falls in love with the prince. In her dreams, she always sees the same prophecy. When she is accused of a crime, she is rescued by Elian and his crew from the gallows. Elian is a pirate and a sorcerer that was drawn to Withrae.
This is a very good and promising beginning of the series. I loved the built up of the story, giving little pieces about the characters at a time. The descriptions of everything give you a good view of how everything looks like. I also enjoyed how the emotions and thinking of the characters is described, you learn more about them as the story evolves. This is a good blend of some romance, magic, and mystery. The book abruptly ends with many questions still unanswered and I am very eager to read more.
