What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
What happened after the happily ever after?
You all know the story of your favorite fairytale, but did you ever wonder what happened after the fairytale ending? Well we know. Not all afters end up happily, sometimes the real adventure starts much later…
No one understands what it’s like when your mother is famous for her beauty and you are, at best, average. Actually I’m wrong. She wasn’t famous just for her beauty, but that’s how people tell the story, how people have always told the story. That was even her name for a while. No one remembered her real name. She was just the sleeping princess or Sleeping Beauty. Even all these years later, when the royals appear in the paper, my father, the king barely gets a mention and I’m only a footnote in my own life, destined to always be Sleeping Beauty’s daughter.
My name’s Princess Azia Rose of Draconis and here is my story…
Following famous fairytale characters, eighteen years after their happily ever after, the Kingdom of Fairytales offers an edge of the seat thrill ride in an all new and sensational way to read.
Thoughts on Queen of Dragons
In a word, this was sweet. I enjoyed the determined pride of Azia and the interactions between her and her parents, Milo and the Fae. It’s a modern tale with an old world feel, still bleeding that subtle innocence all fairy tales have. I did find myself turning my nose up at heavy handed twist of her father, despite his grief, as well as the reluctant, yet seemingly ‘trained’ way she obeyed him. Regardless, it still flowed fairly well and was sweet enough to continue.
- I LOVE Remy!!!!
- The writing is occasionally stilted.
- Very short.

My Final Verdict on Queen of Dragons
Short, sweet and just enough to keep you happy – this fairy tale continuation (it is NOT a retelling) is both charming and intriguing…. and it’s free on Kindle Unlimited.
