Publisher's Summary

Seven thousand years ago, an Amethystine dragon fell in love with a Kalleen princess, and nearly uncovered an unholy truth. As a consequence, to protect the status quo, the Amethystine were banished from the kingdom, their very existence wiped from the epics of history.    

Plagued by inescapable nightmares, Amelia wonders if the unknown dragon in her dreams, whose boundless fury destroys all she loves, is a glimpse of an ancient past…or uncertain future?   

Despite her fears, the newly crowned Dragon Queen must find the courage to face the kingdom’s darkest secrets. Evil truths that those who prefer the old ways, especially the temple’s powerful leaders, will go to any length to keep in eternal shadow.   

Standing steadfast by her side, Amelia’s Captain Gwain, and newfound love Conner, strive to assist her. In their quest to forge a new kingdom, one free from oppression of those not blessed with a dragon form, Amelia delves deeper into the temple’s corruption and uncovers the horrors wrought upon her kingdom’s children in the name of control and power. A necessary task, for a better future, but her revelations could spark a civil war between the temples’ devoted followers and those sworn to the royal dragon bloodline.

Releasing the Dragon

This book is an amazing piece of work. The story is great and keeps you captivated from start to finish. The back story in the book bought me to so many tears. The audio narration is just perfect for this book. I cannot wait for book 3 to be released.

A fascinating dragon shifter fantasy

I quite enjoyed this second book of a solidly written dragon fantasy. This series need to be read in order. The author K.L. Bone takes the subject matter seriously and has created a detailed royal court with dramatic events. There is only a small splash of romance. There is violence and an instance of attempted rape, so this is definitely not YA. This volume continues the story of the Amelia, the new dragon-shifter queen of Kalleen. New political tension with the Temples and uncovered secrets from thousands of years ago kept me interested. There is a cliffhanger, which I expected and I liked. The overall tone is a little sad, but the determination of Amelia and the loyalty of her friends balanced out the sad tone. I recommend this to anyone who wants a serious dragon fantasy for adults.

The narrator Kylie Stewart delivers a beautiful, regal performance that is perfect for bringing this book to life. Her high-class English accent works really well for the nobility of Kalleen, and it brings elegance to the political intrigue at the royal court. She is pretty good at differentiating the voices of the different characters. I think that she talks a little too slowly, so I usually listened at 1.25x speed. I wish her men's voices could have been a little bit deeper. Overall, the narrator did a great job.

I requested and received a free audiobook copy via #AudiobookObsession, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

WOW!

Wow... this book was just as good. If not, slightly better than the first one. I've always loved history so maybe it was the back and forth of now and 7000 years ago that made me think this one was slightly better. But I love both of these books. I was actually sad when it was over. And even sadder when I realized I would have to wait for the third book. I highly recommend these books and hope KL Bone continues writing them for a long time!

Wonderful story, but hurts my heart.

Narrator does a great job. She has a nice accent and fits the tone of the story well.

This is the 2nd book in this series, so definitely start with book 1 before starting this one. This book starts after the events of the first book.

The story is entertaining and the writing is great. Love Amelia’s strength and intelligence; she’s a good queen. Love how Amelia and Connor are so sweet together, and they have such passion between them. He’s so supportive of her. They have a wonderful connection. The thing that doesn’t work for me as much is how depressed I feel reading this story; about 85% of this book is depressing, which is similar to the first book. The present story is a little more hopeful, but the author gets her depressing quotient in by having a depressing story from the past. Amelia finds some scrolls that tell the story of a dragon princess long ago that tries to take on the horrible priestesses. In the present, Amelia is also trying to take down the evil corruption that the priestesses have been allowed to complete many atrocities against many innocents. The author has created a unique story that draws me in, so I’m still looking forward to reading the next book. Unfortunately, another depressing thing is that it seems the next book isn’t out and this one ends with some cliffhangers. So, yeah, a very good story with some strong and wonderful characters, but it’s depressing.

Great

Great paranormal romance! I was just as hooked on book 2 as I was on book 1. I really enjoyed all the pieces of this story. There is mystery, romance and suspense! The flashbacks really helped answer some questions beautifully and added a great layer. The narrator's voice is beautiful and is perfect for the characters.

Book 2 of Flames of Kalleen Series

Releasing The Dragon by K.L. Bone is book two in the Flames of Kalleen Series that I listened to on audio narrated by Kylie Stewart. All I can say is K.L. did it again. She does an amazing job pulling you into the story. This story does end on a cliffhanger and there is not a book three currently out. Kylie did an amazing job narrating. She uses different voices for the characters which made it easy to follow along. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves paranormal/shifter books.
