Synopsis


The brave, burning with fire, harnessed the Dragon’s Rage….

As the Dragon Heir, seventeen-year-old Kaia inherited the power of flame to protect her homeland from a godlike necromancer’s undead army. But after centuries of peace, the necromancer has faded to myth, and the Dragon Heir is feared by the people. Persecuted and cast out, Kaia struggles to embrace and control her seemingly useless gift while confined to her family’s farm.

But when the necromancer’s undead terrorize the land once again, Kaia runs away to join the battle.

With the help of her childhood rival, the handsome Shadow Heir, and a snarky, cursed cat, Kaia must figure out how to control both her fire and her confidence in time to save Okarria. If she fails, she will sacrifice her family, her new friends, and the enchanting world she has only just begun to see.

And time is running out.

  • BBNYA Finalist #2: The reading for the final round of BBNYA continues and, so far, it hasn’t done me wrong. I’m liking this read, so far, though I can’t tell you much more than that, atm. I can’t wait til we finish up this year’s contest so I can talk about all the books I read! There were some really incredible ones, that’s for sure.
  • Forget Me Not by Anca Antoci: I just started this one today at lunch. I’m reading it for a The Write Reads blog tour and, so far, I’m enjoying it! It’s an interesting story and I’m really vibing with the main character. I’m hoping I continue to love it.
