Summary

Their power is in the strength of their bond. But deceit threatens to break it. 

It’s official. Kaelan Younger has finally been accepted as a dragon tamer at the Akademy. Yet even as she begins to learn the extent of her powers, a mysterious illness stalks the dragons and threatens Prince Lasaro. 

More than her bond with the prince is endangered when Kaelan seeks help from a most unlikely source. As a result, the lies to cover her deception mount. But with the enemy’s armies gathering at Alveria’s borders, Kaelan will do whatever it takes to save those she has sworn to protect - even if it means sacrificing herself. 

Now Kaelan and Lasaro must find a way to heal the dragons and harness the depth of their connection in order to stop the treachery from within. 

If not, a once great nation will fall. 

This novel contains some sexual content and violence.

Good , Clean Fantasy Story

Story opens and progresses well. It is a good sequel to the previous novel, but, as the previous one, could stand alone. This is the mark of a good author.
Narration is very good as well as well edited. Changing between characters has good vocal pressure. I recommend this audiobook for ages 12 and older due to some violence.
I was given this audiobook for free and I freely give my opinion and rating

Great follow up to book 1

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

As with the first book, this was geared towards a younger audience but still really good. My son and I listened to this book together too and, like last time, we both enjoyed it. The narration continues to be well done. I really enjoyed where the author is taking the story in the series. Definitely a great listen and one I would recommend for fans of fantasy of all ages.

Fantasy

I love academy books and this one was no exception. However, I would recommend you read/listen to the first book so you can connect more with the characters. I listened to this book without realising it was book two. As soon as I listened to it I knew it was not the first book, it carries on from book one.
Other than this it is a great book. Looking forward to the third in the series.

Another great series

This is the ninth book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I think I’d listen to anything she writes. I’ve enjoyed everything so far.
I like the relationship between Karelian and Lazaro. Their partnership is not easy and both have to work hard at it. It’s easier since she has been accepted by the Akademy, but prejudices continue. When the man that helped her on her first journey to the Akademy reappears and offers to secretly train her, their bond and trust is tested. Yet, they must work together to try to heal the dragons. More are getting sick every day and the survival of the dragon species is threatened.

This is the second book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Rebekah Nemethy ) and I would listen to another. She does a great job narrating. Her style helps the listener get involved in the story, and her character voices are varied. .

There are no explicit sex scenes, and despite the synopsis warming of sexual content, I can’t remember any. There is no excessive violence or swearing.

Solid fantasy adventure

A looked down upon "peasant girl" is seemingly the only person trying to find the cause of the illness spreading throughout the Akademy while working through the ups and downs of growing up in a society that doesn't fully accept her. Also, it has a generous amount of training, drama, betrayal, and romance that make it an entertaining listen. The characters sometimes stumble and make imperfect decisions which add to the enchanting atmosphere the book has to see these young characters try and prove themselves and be accepted as worthwhile people in their circles.

The narration by Rebekah Nemethy is quite good and she delivers a good performance on all fronts that capture the characters, their emotions and very good pacing throughout the whole book. Not everything is perfect, it is clearly a YA book with some important things either skipped over or told to the audience instead of shown, but it is engaging and entertaining throughout. I think it is a solid second book that sets up things for the final book in the trilogy.

Decent Fantasy Book

I thought that the story was pretty good. It didn't really connect with me as a reader or a listener but there were no glaring mistakes. I personally think that maybe it just didn't speak to me personally. If you're a great fan of dragons this could definitely be extactly what you're looking for.

The proper way to care for your dragon

Kaelan has finally been accepted as a student and is beginning her classes as a dragon trainer. Things are looking up! That is when dragons start falling from the sky.

A strange sickness is starting to incapacitate every dragon. As a healer, Kaelan knows that something is very wrong and puts all of her effort into finding out who and how!

This is a good clean fantasy story that is certainly worth your time. I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the last book of the o!

Good book

Nice continuation of Kaelan's story. It follows her as she learns that just being accepted to the Academy is not the end of her challenges.
