Battling a Migraine Dragon

By: Cait Marie

Hello! Today is my stop on the Dragons Within Book Tour, and I was supposed to have a review for you, but alas… I do not. I’m on day four of a horrific migraine battle, which makes it very difficult to read and focus, so I haven’t finished the book yet.

However, I can tell you that I’m reading Dragons Within: Embracing Her Fire, and I’m really enjoying it so far. I will put up a review as soon as I can finish it. For now, here’s a list of the short stories in this anthology, the blurb, and the link to get your copy!

Anthology Blurb:

“People who only see the bad call us cursed. Now I have a chance to change that narrative.”

A noblewoman struggles to mind her manners when a pack of brutes manhandles her silks.

A strategist weighs the growth of her career against the fate of her humanity.

A deadly huntress questions her ability to serve as a kind, gentle leader.

Fearing execution, a sweet-natured jeweler hides a dark secret.

Journey into the world of Dragons Within and dance with a fire that flows through the veins of powerful women. Often viewed as evil and destructive, dragons lend their strength to aid their friends and loved ones. Similarly, certain traits in women are touted as unacceptable or taboo, but the women in this anthology claim those traits for their own good and the good of those around them.

A lonely healer takes on the burdens of a troubled lake and the sorrowful spirits therein. A hapless lady taken to sea turns the tide from victim to victor. A self-conscious accountant dares to delve into desires that break the rules. A puppy lover with a short fuse takes on the Underworld with a quirky conviction.

Powerfully crafted by twelve new and emerging speculative fiction authors, these tales shine a beacon of hope in the face of condemnation, giving others the courage to chase their dreams with scorching determination and impenetrable resolve. Shedding their fear, the women of Dragons Within approach the all-consuming black blaze and . . .embrace their fire.
