Featured Review: Dragon's Awakening (Sean Fletcher)

About This Book:

Kaylee looked at her hands. No, not hands. Claws. She had claws. 
“What am I?” 
“You’re a freak. An abomination. You never should have existed.” 

For Kaylee Richards, starting high school is hard enough. Growing dragon scales and blasting her date with lightning just makes it that much harder. But when the creep pulls a sword on her, what’s a girl to do? 

Turns out Kaylee is a dragon-kin, a half dragon/half human with the rare power to summon storms. The problem? She’s attracted the wrong kind of attention: Slayers, an ancient order dedicated to eradicating all dragon-kin. They’re planning something big. Something deadly. And they need Kaylee to do it. 

But Kaylee isn’t alone. She has her martial arts-wielding best friend, a bumbling wizard, and his hot, air-headed Protector by her side. Together they’ll try to stop the Slayers before their plans are complete. Or they’ll die trying. But hopefully not. 

Ready for a young adult urban fantasy full of magic, wizards, dragon (kins) and romance?

When Kaylee goes on a date and the guy tries to make a move on her, she accidentally calls on a storm. Then, the guy draws a sword on her and tries to kill her. She gets away alive and attempts to push the disaster date to the back of her mind and have a normal first day of her freshman year. But she quickly learns that nothing will ever be normal for her again.

Kaylee is no ordinary girl. She's actually part dragon and is a rare storm one. Dragon slayers are after her and Kaylee is surprised to discover that her best friend Jade is her protector, also known as a "tamer". Jade introduces her to Maddox, who is a protector and he watches over Edwin because he's a Merlin (a person who does magic). The four of them grow closer and are going to need each other with the slayers trying to capture Kaylee. They want her for something and that's scarier than killing her.

I love the friendship between Jade and Kaylee and the humor it brings to the book. There's a lot of action in this story and I love Edwin's character. I felt bad for him in the beginning, but Kaylee pushes him to be better and the scenes with them together kept me reading. Dragons are a favorite of mine so I wasn't surprised to enjoy this read!


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of magic, dragons, action, secrets, and mystery.
