Kundalis Storm Dragon Book Tour and Review

I recently agreed to be part of a book tour for the book "Kundalis Storm Dragon" by author Frances Pauli. I had not previously heard of this author, so, although I  have a love for stories about dragons, I was a little bit wary. 

The blurb:
"Karin knows she’s gone completely insane—nuts—absolutely batshit crazy, when she 
spots an insidious blue dragon twining through the trees at a  rest stop in the Cascade 
Mountains. Despite agreeing to join her roommate at a psychic fair, she’s never believed 
in anything metaphysical. She’s pretty sure the Reiki treatment she succumbed to has 
brought on a frighteningly realistic hallucination—until they roll their mini-van in the 
middle of I-90, and she is rescued from the vehicle by the same monstrous blue figment 
of her imagination. 

She awakens to find that she’s been delivered to a cabin high in the mountains instead 
of to a proper hospital. The “doctor” looking out for her is more of a new-ager than a 
physician, and the people who own the  house, including the urban highlander version 
of Fabio, don’t have any intention of letting her leave.

Faced with the unimaginable, and strapped to an all-too-real dragon, Karin must decide 
how to tame the beast or risk losing herself to it forever."

My review:
The cover, as you can see, is beautiful, and although the book was only an ARC copy which still hadn't had 
its final edits completed, I found it to have few, if any  grammatical or spelling errors. The book was very 
well written and a delight to  read. In fact, once I got past the first few pages and started to understand the 
story a bit more, I became thoroughly engrossed in the book. I read it within a couple of  hours and pretty 
much didn't want to put it down until I finished the story. I highly recommend it if you like the idea of 
reading a dragon story that has an interesting twist on the idea of what a dragon really is.
Spoiler (Don't read beyond this point if you don't want to read a spoiler): My favorite line in the book: 
"We are not enlightened. We are broken." (That may not be an exact quote; it's just from memory.)
