Embracing the Dragon by K.L. Bone narrated by Kylie Stewart

Embracing the Dragon  audiobook cover artBook Summary

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. But it is 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?

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book from the start. Amelia is the younger sister so she never anticipated life changing from her. Her sister was to be queen. She was going to go forward with life and her love as it had been. Except, that isn't the plan the new queen has for her. The narrator did a great job at conveying feelings. My only issue was the pacing was a bit slow for me.
The dragon shifter aspect of it was amazing. I loved that! Amelia has such a crushing time of it at the start, I felt so terrible for her. She is strong though. I think my favorite character was the captain and the decisions he made. Overall, it was a fabulous story.

It was a 4/5 for me. I cannot wait to see where this goes next.
