The Queen's Wings (The Emerging Queens #1) by Jamie K. Schmidt

(The Queen's Wings tagline)

Blurb:

Long ago, the Cult of Humanity sacrificed the Dragon Queen, crippling the breeding process.  But now Carolyn hears the voice of that long dead queen telling her that she holds the key to breaking the spell that will free all the female dragons.

 FBI dragon Reed’s disdain for humans can’t mask the magnetic attraction he has for Carolyn, but when she tells him she’s going to shift into a dragon he thinks she’s crazy. A female hasn’t been hatched, or shape shifted, in over a thousand years.

 He’s proven wrong after Carolyn shifts and is named the new Queen on the block. A never-ending line of suitors forms, but she only wants Reed. Too bad he doesn’t want in on the competition. But when the Cult kidnaps Carolyn to sacrifice her in an effort to make the curse against the female dragons permanent, Reed must face his fears—and feelings, racing to save the woman he realizes he can’t live without. 

(quote from The Queen's Wings)

My Review:

The first book in a new dragon series is a mesmerizing action packed romance.  Carolyn is used to everyone thinking she’s crazy when she insists that she is going to shift into a dragon and FBI dragon Reed is no different. He’s proven wrong when Carolyn starts to shift and suddenly she’s the new Queen on the block with a never-ending line of suitors and enemies and Reed must face his fears – and feelings to save the woman he realizes he can’t do without.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with action, suspense, drama, humor and romance.  The author makes it easy for readers to picture each scene as its happening with well written events and details that inspire vivid images and the well orchestrated action scenes are believable and exciting. The strong compelling characters are charismatic, easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.

The attraction between Reed and Carolyn radiates heat from every page and the sex scenes are hot and steamy and the drama in their relationship ensures that the reader never gets bored.  Reed is a great alpha dragon, he has the arrogant male with a disdain for humans attitude along with a sexy bad boy vibe that makes the reader swoon, while Carolyn has the reader empathizing with her plight and cheering her on throughout the story.  The tale inspires lots of smiles and chuckles with some very snarky dialogue, some sad moments, quite a bit of anger, and a lot of spine tingling delicious anticipation.

The author has created a fantastic world of captivating characters where dragons are the norm and humans live along side them. There are lots of refreshingly different elements and some surprising twists that keep the readers on their toes and I really have to say that I love how Carolyn got revenge on her brother at the end.  I can’t wait to read the next book in this enchanting series.

The Emerging Queens series:

It was easier to slay dragons back during the Crusades, but a treaty forged with blood strengthened their protections. In return, humans grew prosperous and plentiful, while the dragons grew powerful. Integrating into human society, dragons were revered as warlords and statesmen and as time marched on, celebrities and CEOs.

When the cult of humanity sacrificed a dragon Queen to break the treaty, they crippled the breeding process. A female hasn’t been hatched or shape shifted in over a thousand years. With the dragons looking extinction in the face, they are desperate for females. Only five Queens remain, each more corrupt and sinister than the other.

Coming next:

2. Queen’s Flight

3. The Queen’s Dance
