ARC Review: "Dragon's Treasure" (Dragons Awaken, #1) by Maya Starling

Dragon's Treasure by Maya Starling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

"She was the girl who longed for the freedom of the dragon, and he was the dragon who longed to be a man."

A heroine reclaiming her fate. A dragon with a secret. A prince on a quest.

Olivia flees to the forest seeking freedom from her family's demands. She finds refuge in a cave, only to discover it is a dragon’s lair. The dragon, Kaden, is not the monster she first thinks him to be. After overcoming her initial fright – of not being eaten – Olivia discovers that the dragon has a gentle heart.

Kaden is resigned to loneliness after centuries of wandering the lands. Meeting Olivia brings joy to his solitary life, and never has he dreamed that a young woman would be the one to start the change in him.

A storm brews on the horizon.

A prince with a handsome face and a cruel heart is on a quest to slay the dragon, and take the throne. He will do whatever it takes to have what he believes is his to own. And now, he has his eyes set on the pretty little maiden from the forest. He will make her his Queen, whether she wants it or not.




I recieved an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I was very excited when Maya Starling decided to publish her Wattpad novel! I've been a follower of the series since she first started updating the book and I was very pleased to see how the new, editted version would look like!

Olivia and Kaden are two of my favorite characters in this trope of "the prince saving the girl from the dragon". But everything is not as it seems for neither of them. Not to mention that Mgnus is a horrible human being. The story has also action but mostly it focuses on Kaden's and Olivia's relationship. The author did a great job on her characters' grownth, since the first draft and there was nothing that made me dislike the book.

I mean, it's a book with a dragon!

I'll be eagerly expecting how the second book will go, since I've already read it (a few years back) on Wattpad. Recommended if you like a good read about our scaly friends. ;)
