Born in Flames by Candace Knoebel


Red mirrored scales race up my arms as the haze of pain blurs my vision. My bones crack, breaking to realign. I scream. It is then that the realization of my unavoidable fate sinks in; I am of a dying race. I am dragon. 

Aurora Megalos, orphaned and teetering on the edge of adulthood, thought finding her past would curb the sting of being an outcast. Having no memories of the time before she awoke on her foster mother’s doorstep, she yearns for the emptiness inside her to be filled. With her fellow orphaned best friend, Fenn, by her side, she has nothing to lose and everything to gain. But something powerful stirred within her that she couldn’t explain. Something wanted out. 

In the dark of night, a crazed Seer, dubbed Mr.Creepy, erases everything she’s ever known with an impending prophecy. She now faces two paths. Return to her true home to protect a dying race against a growing evil, or stay hidden in the safety of our realm with a shot at a true love. With a vengeful Arch Enemy stopping at nothing to see her dead, she’s running out of time; a decision must be made. What would you choose?

 My Review:

I loved this book so much. Not only is the cover gorgeous but I was pulled in from page one and I loved every minute of this book.

Aurora is thrown out of her world and into ours for protection. She is a dragon which is a dying race and the fates want to kill her. She doesn’t remember anything before the age of ten when she was thrown into our world. Where she gets adopted and meets a boy Fenn who doesn’t remember anything also. One day on their way to work Aurora is bothered by Mr. Creepy has they call him. He starts telling her a prophecy and it freaks her out. But in the process she starts to realize things are coming true. Aurora and Fenn set off to find Mr. Creepy to decide if they want the answers to what and who they are. But time is running out and they need to make the choice to either cross back into the world they were thrown from for protection and learn their destiny or stay in our world and try to be normal.

I loved Aurora she is strong, stubborn, and so real that I was able to connect to her easily.  Even though she is so confused about everything she fights to learn the truth which made me love her even more. Fenn is just a great guy who loves Aurora and will do anything to keep her safe. Plus I love his blue eyes. Even when he made mistakes he was quick to apologize and find ways to fix them. They are everything you want in a heroine and hero.

This ended up being one of those books where I kept saying one more chapter and that turned into me staying up until four a.m. to finish. And I am not sorry I got no sleep. I loved this whole book and I can’t wait to read more by Candace.  5/5 Bloody Fangs
