Story Line Overview: Sloane Murphy didn’t know she was a dragon until her hiking trip turned awry and she almost died. After turning into a dragon, she was chased by men, whom she would later discover were druids, that wanted to kill her.
She had been on the run for days by the time Keegan, another dragon, found her. He and his pack, a group of shifters that had taken a pledge to protect the skyborn, took it upon themselves to teach/train Sloane in the ways of the Skyborn.
But things aren’t always as they seem to be. Dragon magic is green, but Sloane’s magic is purple. She discovers that she has the blood of the enemy running in her veins. With the help of a high witch, her pack, and a rogue druid, Sloane must learn how to survive with her new found powers.
This was a wonderful read. I was able to guess some of the plot twists and turns before they happened, but overall it was an interesting story. Sloane’s character was relatable and Keegan’s character was tolerable. The romance between the two was a smolder that threatened to spark into flame.
Brielle would soon come to realize that fate has a sick sense of humor. Growing up in demon city, she knew how to handle herself and what to expect of demons. Living the good life in Angel City was just a dream, or it was.
Emma is brought back to life by Willa, but her life will never be the same. After waking up in Neutral’s cave, Emmy realizes she is no longer a dweller. The tension between Neutral and Emmy builds as they pick and poke at each other.
