Embracing The Flames

Book 2 of the Born In Flames Trilogy
Embracing the Flames Blurb:
The Stone of Immortality has always been kept under the watch of the Draconta. That is, until the betrayal of a Fate. Now everything is about to change.

Aurora Megalos accepted her destiny without blinking-even if it meant succumbing to her dragon side. Deemed the Progeny, she left the ordinary life she knew and has done everything in her power to learn the ways of her new realm and what it means to be part dragon. But when her mentor, Astral, suddenly disappears, she is forced to take the reins.

With war on the brink, she sets out on an epic journey to not only find her mentor, but to stop her Arch Enemy, Zordon, from obtaining the Stone of Immortality. But what she discovers about him along the way is far worse than she could’ve ever imagined. She will be tested and pushed to the limit. Lives will be lost, love will be questioned, and a battle will begin.

Will be available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, KOBO, and as of 07/17/2013.

~~Kj's Review~~
 Aurora is back in her own realm, learning more about who she is and just what she is expected to do with her life. She and Fenn are very much together but Zordan’s son Zane pulls at her too for some reason. When Astral is taken away from her she is then forced to step up and take charge; scared and unsure, she makes decisions and wonders if she’s doing right.
 Of course she is trying to keep track of Zordan also, there is way too much on her plate and everything keeps changing. Meeting her dragon family is exciting and gives her roots to fall back on. As she learns more about being the Progeny, and the missing part of the prophecy, the more stressful and dangerous her world and life become. Will she be able to survive the dangers and the losses to make it through and save her world?

 I love this book as much as I did the first. Candace Knoebel creates a world where the extraordinary seems normal. I am thrilled to have been able to read and review this book, many thanks to the author for giving me the book. I am excited for the next book!!

Book 1 of the Born In Flames Trilogy
Born In Flames Blurb:
Red mirrored scales race up my arms as the haze of pain blurs my vision. My bones crack, breaking to realign. I scream. It is then that the realization of my unavoidable fate sinks in; I am of a dying race. I am dragon.

Aurora Megalos, orphaned and teetering on the edge of adulthood, thought finding her past would curb the sting of being an outcast. Having no memories of the time before she awoke on her foster mother’s doorstep, she yearns for the emptiness inside her to be filled. With her fellow orphaned best friend, Fenn, by her side, she has nothing to lose and everything to gain. But something powerful stirred within her that she couldn’t explain. Something wanted out.

In the dark of night, a crazed Seer, dubbed Mr.Creepy, erases everything she’s ever known with an impending prophecy. She now faces two paths. Return to her true home to protect a dying race against a growing evil, or stay hidden in the safety of our realm with a shot at a true love. With a vengeful Arch Enemy stopping at nothing to see her dead, she’s running out of time; a decision must be made. What would you choose?
