The Temptation of Dragons by Chrys Cymri (Book Review #69)

  True to its name, The Temptation of Dragons is a fantasy novel about a priest girl wandering in a world where dragons, vampires, werewolves, and unicorns live. The whole story I believe pans out as a love interest following Raven, the dragon, falling in love with Penny. The world of Lloegyr speaks Welsh, and this is also where all the animals live.

“If you have already read The House of the Soul, you will find my words were laced with a certain irony. One of the insights the protagonist learns on her journey is not to rely on validation from the outside world, but to find it within yourself. As an author, I’m afraid my spiritual journey has not evolved that far. Instead, I rush to read any new review and bask in the validation of my work wherever I can find it! Jeyran did a wonderful job describing the heart and soul of the story, without giving too much away. She also hinted at the different layers available for a reader to explore beyond the main plot. I highly recommend utilizing Jeyran’s many talents if you’re after an insightful review of your work.”
