"Within the first few chapters, I knew that I had discovered a rare gem... Writing in two different worlds, each with their own cast of characters, is nothing short of extraordinary. They way she blended these worlds from one chapter to the next, left me desperate and anxious, yet eagerly devouring each chapter to finish what was happening in the one before. I have never read a book written so flawlessly in this manner. Bravo!" -S.H. Timmins, Goodreads Review ★★★★★
"5 huge stars!!! I would give Crown of Dragons more if I could! I loved this book so much! This is such a unique story, alternating between a fantasy world and earth... I can't recommend this book enough! If you enjoy fantasy, please read it! You won't be disappointed!" -Emily, Goodreads Review ★★★★★
"Two worlds, one amazing book! This book grabbed me from the beginning. I enjoyed it from start to finish and I am left wanting more! I really enjoyed the dual point of view and the juxtaposition of the human realm and the dragon realm. I was really into the book and right before chapter 7 I was dropping my jaw. It's so good." -Telisha, Kindle Reader ★★★★★
"THIS BOOK WAS PHENOMENAL!!!! Nina has somehow managed to magically weave two books together into one seamlessly. I can't even word right now after finishing this incredible story. #PleaseSendHelp." - Katelyn, Goodreads Review ★★★★★
From the Author
"You don't understand. I need you to help me. You have to."
"No," I shoot back, keeping my eyes straight ahead. "I don't!"
"You can't say no to me," he growls, reaching out and grabbing my arm. Burning heat presses against my long-sleeved shirt and I yelp, jumping back. My eyes don't want to believe what I'm seeing but there's no denying it. There's a hole in my shirt sleeve, singed around the corners. The pungent smell of burned fabric wafts through the air between us.
I whip around. This time it's my turn to make demands.
"Explain this!" I point to the black mark against the white cotton. He looks, but he doesn't say anything. "Explain why your eyes have fire in them right now," I continue. "Explain why your body heat raises when you're angry, or why you just burned a hole through my shirt. Tell me everything, Dean, or don't ask for my help."
He shakes his head, pained. "I can't."
"It's always been just me and my mom," I say, my voice cracking. "For me, letting other people in is super hard. And I get that, I get that you don't want to let me in."
His eyes search mine, but he still doesn't say anything
"I get it, because I'm the exact same way." I pull my arms into my jacket, covering the singed material. "I can't let you in on my secrets without you returning the favor. I'm sorry, but this is how this works for me."
He grimaces. "It's too risky for me to answer your questions."
Does he think he's the only one who has risks involved here? The disappointment is heavy, but I know what I have to do. I step back onto the sidewalk, my voice calm and my resolve strong. Maybe I'll regret this, but right now, I'm fresh out of options.
"I'm sorry, but I can't help you."

This is a ya story and the two points of view, are told from Hazel who is experiencing somethings in the (modern) human world and Khali who is a princess in a magical kingdom that is ruled by dragons. The stories are on a dual timeline with each girl doing their own thing until the worlds start to collide.
Hazel is just starting college, trying to live on her own for the first time and make friends. She is smart, pretty but not very sociable, she starts to find herself more in college. Hazel starts to open up to people, becomes more confident, and experiences new things. While Khail who is a rebel at heart does her duty of princess without too much complaint and cares greatly about those she loves and her kingdom. She is adventurous and daring in ways that Hazel is only starting to discover. I like both girls and I can't wait to find out how they are connected.
The world-building in this book is so good. The human world was easy just add a few magical touches but the supernatural world had so much magic and a creative backstory that just made me want to know more. I loved how not only were there dragons but the dragons had elemental powers. There were mentions of other kingdoms and other supernaturals and I hope that Nina dives more into more of that in the next book. The overall story was amazing and kept my rapt attention, this book was pretty addictive and I have more than a few questions that I want answers to.
Crown of Dragons was everything that I, as a fantasy reader could have wanted. Duel timelines and perspectives, alternate worlds, snobby royalty, magic, complex characters, great world-building, political intrigue, supernatural creatures, betrayal, an excellent plotline and so much more. The story drew me in and I didn't want to let go, I loved everything about this book, things are just getting started and I'm so excited to read the next book in the series, Kingdom of Spirts.
I have read other books by this author, and I can see a definite maturation in her writing.
I also adore the characters! And I especially love how even the brothers are vastly different. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a sassy, strong willed heroine but there's something endearing about both Hazel's and Khali's shy characters. They know their worth and are strong-willed but lack the confidence and bravado that's become so common in heroines lately. I think it'll be an amazing adventure to see how these girls grow as they learn to trust in themselves and their abilities.
Great YA book, but maybe a triggering scene toward the very end of extreme date violence. It is influenced by a magical force, but is there non the less. Has a theme of college age girls going missing throughout the whole book.
