The consequences of falling for a beast gifts Marina wonders never before seen ... in this world.
My Review:
            Okay......finished this one fairly quickly. The plot and the world building was imaginative. Where can you go wrong with DRAGONS who turn into hot men??? I was really excited to read this book because the cover was the first thing that got my attention. I know, I know don't judge a book by its cover bla bla bla... but I do it anyways. I can't help it. Anyway this book is about a 21 year-old named Marina, who to me wavered between brave to annoying. She threw a lot of temper tantrums one minute then  became a complete flirt the next. This bothered me a lot. Firstly, it made her seem extremely childish acting in two different ways, and secondly she is portrayed as a mature 21 year old.
            One day Marina comes across a dragon falling out of the sky. She is curious and approaches the dragon that turns into a man. She instantly falls in love with this man/dragon whose life she saved. The man/dragon is Koen who inadvertently changes her life. She treks into another dimension where she finds out she's a princess, meets her father and enters a battle to secure her position alongside the dragon she loves. Fletcher did an amazing job by making this book interesting and fast paced. The characters were fascinating and imaginative. Over all I enjoyed reading and can't wait to finish this series.
