Marked Unknown Soldier Shadow

Description

Calene, Princess of Blackstone, lives a sheltered life at the palace, unable to go outside as she pleases for fear of the king’s enemies. Her only form of release is the highly-taboo Old Lore: the stories of when man and dragon were deadly enemies. Nowadays those stories are forbidden, the dragons thought to be driven to extinction—until one shows up and kidnaps her brother Terran, the heir to the throne.

Unwilling to wait for others, Calene decides to take action. Frantic to save her brother, she escapes from the palace, seeking the aid of a powerful dragon like in the stories. Instead she finds Vear. Bitter and stubborn, he forces her to contract with him: he will help her find her brother but she must serve him as long as he wishes. Unbeknownst to her, the world is darker and more dangerous than the stories had led her to believe.

I really like the dragon lore in the story and the mixed feelings our protagonist has about marriage. To improve the story, I think less descriptive detail could be used sometimes since I feel there is too much description at times.

I would just worry a little about the title. There's a BIG YA series with the same name. But I will give it a shot!

Oh no, I didn't know that. I might rethink this title, then! Thank you for the advice!

I'm on chapter 3 and I'm enjoying the read! The world-building is on point! I find myself wanting the story to allow us to visit the countries mentioned in passing, which is a good sign that an interesting and absorbing world has been made.

P.S. Do you have any social media? Like say Twitter? I really like your book and would love to chat with you about it. :)
