About the Book:
Royal twins ripped apart at birth become reluctant champions of good and evil.
Kylie, a teenage science geek, has no faith in people. Instead, she relies on what she trusts the most, the facts––what she can see, touch, and hear but never feel. With enough pain to deal with in her own world, she is thrust into another––a kingdom at war whose strange inhabitants fear one thing the most––the return of the dragon. All of this is illogical to Kylie, but even more so, when she discovers she belongs there.
Her brother, Prince Jarlon, journeys to kill the dragon who has laid waste to his kingdom. His only hope for destroying the beast is help from his sister, whom he has never met. Will their paths cross before the beast’s malevolence infects Kylie and turns her into his creature or will Jarlon have to destroy her, too?
Except of The Dragon's Shadow:
She walked to the clearing and stared up at the cave. Taking a breath, she lifted her hand onto the first rock and pulled herself up. She climbed the steep rocks that led to the dragon. Three teledicthus glided in the air, two large and one small. They swooped past her, jaws snapping. Oddly, she didn’t fear them. What did, resided in the cave.
At the top, she stood in front of an enormous opening, the size of a jet hangar. She peered in but saw only darkness.
Kylie stepped into the cave. The rhythmic sound of breathing echoed around her and the air tingled with electricity. A huge outline appeared. Her gaze followed it, trying to make sense of its parts.
A pulsing wall of scales the texture of seaweed glittered and glowed in the vast darkness. A long, callused neck rose before her, topped by a head with two large nostrils oozing a clear, sticky film that covered the inside of the cave. The beast lowered his horned head directly in front of her.
Her body went rigid.
Kylie stood face-to-face with the dragon.
