Crown of Dragons: Bleeding Realms:
Dragon Blessed Book One
by Nina Walker
Wow! I can’t even believe that I finished the first book in this series so fast! I definitely lost some sleep trying to speed-read to find out what happens next. I was disappointed when I realized that I had come to the end of book one and would have to wait a few months till the next book. (Sigh)
The story is told from two POVs and if that bothers you, then this book is probably not for you. However, there is a purpose for these two POVs since there are two realms to explore. Nina Walker gives the reader a glimpse inside both the magical and non-magical realms by telling the story from Hazel’s (non-magical realm) and Khali’s (magical realm) POVs.
Hazel has lived her life blending into the background as much as possible but entering college has changed her anonymity. She also has quite the secret. She sees dead people. Her brief encounter with bad boy Dean only heightens her curiosity on what secrets he’s hiding. Getting a job as psychic medium can only help her situation, right? She’s tried her whole life to control her ability but has had no luck. What is she? Why is this happening to her? When multiple girls go missing in the small college town, Hazel sees their ghosts and doesn’t know how to help them. What can she do? Will Dean be able to help her?
Khali is a princess because she was born with two different colored eyes which indicated she had all four elemental powers. She is destined to be the next queen to one of the four Dragon princes. She is also Dragon blessed – she can shift into a dragon. She is powerfully powerless to control her own destiny – or is she? Tragedy strikes and forces Khali to make a decision about her future. Does she have what it takes to forge her own path?
Super interesting concept and definitely need to read the next book now! I’ll just be here waiting impatiently. Highly recommend!
