Goodreads Synopsis:

In the second book of the vibrantly depicted Dragons of Galicia Series, Evelyn of Gorias rises to her dragon slayer calling as she fights to conquer a kingdom of deceit, betrayal, and powerful dragons.

Though Evelyn survived the journey across the mountain ranges, the challenges are just beginning. Verubri Castle holds dark secrets, Prince Kieran is a tyrant, and Ciara is resolute on destroying Evelyn and seducing the prince.
When a dragon nearly burns down an entire village, Evelyn must go after the beast. But this won’t be easy, not when the prince has her heavily guarded. Evelyn’s hope wains, until she encounters a stranger who changes the course of everything.
With the looming threat of the entire clan of Galician Dragons being reawakened, Evelyn must hurry to save the kingdom, while Ciara aims to rule it. To accomplish their goals, they must defeat Prince Kieran. In their individual struggles to conquer and prevail, Evelyn and Ciara face external and internal demons they never imagined possible.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I ended up being somewhat disappointed, but the first book. My expectations were a little high. But I am still hoping that this book will help to change my opinions.

Thank you so much to Silver Dagger Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing stayed pretty much the same as the previous book, but the dialogue seems less stiff and took on more life.

Plot Thoughts:

A lot more happened in this book which I am happy about. There were so many new and interesting things that occurred in this book. We were also able to see a whole lot more about the world which was nice as it added to the world building that was scarce in the first book. I liked how well the book continued after the first one. I definitely think that one should read these books straight after each other. 

Character Thoughts:

The characters felt a lot more fleshed out in this book. Not completely round but less one dimensional. Ciara was still kind of weird and just didn't seem like a great character. I really ended up missing Dorian in this book, but his relationship with Evelyn was just as weird as it was in the first book. However, it ended up being more adorable than weird and odd. 

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I thought that this was a great follow up book. The writing was a lot smoother in terms of the dialogue, the plot was more busy and just felt like it was a lot fuller and the characters were more fleshed out and less one dimensional. Thank you so much to Silver Dagger Books for providing me with a copy of this book.
Yours in Reading,
