On a hike deep in the Rocky Mountains, Kai Monahan watches as a dozen dragons—actual freaking dragons—battle beneath a fat white moon. When one crashes nearly dead at her feet and transforms into a man, Kai does the only thing a decent person could: she grabs the nearest sword and saves his life.

As the dragon/man, Rhys, recovers from the attack, a chance brush of skin against skin binds him inextricably to Kai. Becoming heartsworn to a human—especially such a compelling one—is the last thing Rhys wants. But with an ancient enemy gathering to pit dragons against humanity and his strength nearly depleted, Kai has just become the one thing Rhys needs. A complete bond will give him the strength to fight; a denied bond means certain death.

Kai is terrified at the thought of allowing any dragon into her mind…or her heart. Accepting the heartswearing and staying with the dragons means sacrificing everything, and Kai must decide if her freedom is worth risking Rhys's life—a life more crucial to the fate of humanity than she could possibly know.
Soul of Smoke (Dragonsworn, #1)Soul of Smoke by Caitlyn McFarland

A human young woman stumbles into the world of dragons by accidentally rescuing aother woman who ends up be a princess to the dragon shifters.

Soul of Smoke had a unique and colorful world where dragon shifters remain on the periphery of humankind. The story was interesting leaving the reader with a giant cliffhanger and feeling somewhat incomplete. I will definitely have to read on to get more of a feel for this storyline.

The overall read was good, entertaining and had a very interesting premise. In the end, I give Soul of Smoke 3.5 stars.

I received this ARC copy of Soul of Smoke from Carina Press in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication July 27, 2015.
