From USA Today bestselling author, Karpov Kinrade, comes a new fantasy novel that will take your breath away.

"Throne of Glass meets Game of Thrones"

My mum used to say, "One day, your true self will be revealed. And on that day, your closest friends will turn against you."

My name is Sky Knightly. I had an ordinary life. My work as a firefighter. My kids. Rinse and Repeat.

Until someone kidnapped my little girl. Kara.

I'll do anything to get her back.

So when a mysterious stranger offers me a way to find her, I have no choice but to agree.

Even though it means leaving everything behind. Even though it means traveling to a new world.

Now, I must train to be an Ashlord, and fight in a war greater than any before. A war between humanity… and dragons.

If I trust the wrong person, I'm dead.

If I love the wrong person, I'm dead.

And if I die, who will save Kara?

If I die, who will save the world?

The dragons are coming. Are you ready?

My Review:

Sky Knightly is just a young girl/woman who lost her mom a couple of years ago during childbirth. Sky has been taking care of her little sister Kara that was born on that eventful night as well as her two brothers Caleb and Kyle. Sky considers them her children. She takes care of them like they were her own. She works as a firefighter with her best friend Blake, he helps her with the children and she just barely scrapes by from one pay check to the next.

Sky loves the children very much so when Kara is taken away from her she will do whatever she must to get her back even if that means leaving with a stranger that claims he can help her. Sky must leave her home and the children to go to another world to train to be an Ashlord so that one day she can hopefully find her sister and baby Kara. You don’t have to give birth to be a mother.

Of Dreams And Dragons is filled with lots of action. Sky may not be a fighter yet but she can hold her own and will not back down and go running off leaving a friend hanging. For someone with no training she does pretty well in a fight. Besides she does have her magic or powers.

I have read most of if not all of Karpov Kinrade’s novels and loved them all so when I got the opportunity to read Of Dreams And Dragons I jumped in with both feet even though I wasn’t too sure about dragons.

I have not read that many dragon books so I didn’t know if I would like it or not. But you know what I am glad I gave the book a chance because I really loved reading about Sky and her babies. How she had to grow up quickly and was mature enough to take on three children and one being a newborn as well a step dad that didn’t treat her or the children very well and was mean to them that was part of the package so to speak.

I can’t wait to read more about Sky, Kara, Caleb, Kyle, Kadan and Blake. Where is Kara? Will Sky be able to save her? What will happen to Caleb and Kyle? Will Sky finally be able to learn who and what she truly is?

Do I recommend Of Dreams And Dragons? Oh yeah, you bet I do. If you like reading about dragons or even if you have never read about dragons before give it a try anyways I think you will like it.
