Twenty-three year old, Amari Hawke, is thrust into the world of two-soul shifters when she is injured and kidnapped by trackers outside the veil, beyond the safety of her homeland. Unable to remember her past, she trusts no one and relies on instinct to survive. As her awakening approaches, the first time she will transition into her animal, she must evade rogue shifters trying to capture her.

Now free from the King’s Army, powerful dragon lord, Jaxon Blackthorn, seeks a peaceful life. Intent on building his lands into a viable plantation, away from war and bloodshed, he is reluctantly pulled back into the fight when he defends the mysterious shifter with no past against an unseen enemy.

As evil threatens to destroy the entire realm, can the battle-hardened warrior and coming-of-age noblewoman accept their differences to forge an alliance that will ultimately unite the shifter nations?

Please note: Both Rogue Dragon Rising and the subsequent novel, Sleeping Dragon Stirs, end in cliffhangers. The third book in the serial trilogy, Alpha Dragon Awakes, provides a satisfying conclusion to Jaxon and Amari’s story, but broader story arcs continue into the Outside the Veil series. Sleeping Dragon Stirs has an early November release date and Alpha Dragon Awakes is set to release in late December, 2018.

Available at Amazon.

This was the first time I had read a book from this author. I loved the way she opened the book up with a real attention catcher. Two sisters are in immediate danger right away and we begin needing to see what their plight will be.

Amari will take you with her on what happens,  and you are  a willing captive. The book has an Interesting story that will have you asking questions,  especially when each level of this book continues. You also will be very intrigued by the dragons; but there is one in particular that will also lead us a time or two.

Jaxon also has a devilish humorous side  that shows forth on occasion. Things also happen out of the ordinary for this Fantasy realm with you wondering ‘wow’what is going on.

This story is quick with many things happening  in a flowing manner that you must hold on tight and enjoy the ride. Keep in mind though this is only the first part with anticipation being the norm.
