I hope everyone has had an amazing week so far. Today I am going to be doing a review of On the Accidental Wings of Dragons by Julie Wetzel. This story is about a solider being accidentally turned into a dragon when he goes to save a dragon Princess. The adventure that they go on will leave you laughing, and rooting for them. You will be on the edge of your seat wondering what they will get into next, and how they will get out of their predicament.
The description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“When Michael Duncan is sent to investigate the disappearance of several dragon subjects, he finds himself in a bind. Locked in a dungeon, his only hope lies wrapped in a bundle of cloth tossed at his feet. One kiss and his life is changed forever. Hunted by his own people for crimes he didn’t commit, Michael has to learn a whole new life at the hands of a beautiful woman. Can she help him clear his name, or will just being in her presence get him sentenced to death?
Carissa Markel doesn’t know who this man chained to the wall is, but he’s her only chance for escape. She has power, but, born without a voice, she lacks the means to wield it. One choice, made in desperation, sends them running for their lives. Does she have the strength to help him clear his name? And what will her brother, the King of Dragons, do if he finds out what she’s done? The real questions is… can she keep her hands off him long enough to find out?”
I don’t want to give too much of the story away, because I think that the description gives you a pretty good idea about what the book is about. But Carissa is one strong Princess who can take care of herself, and doesn’t need a man to protect her. I love that more authors are creating strong female characters that anyone can relate to. Plus, Michael doesn’t try to control her, and accepts her for the way she is, which I love. No wonder people think I have unrealistic expectations in men, but hey there has to be a man out there that fits the mold of these fictional characters.
Happy flying the skies on wings my dears.
