The Dragon’s Curse by Bethany Wiggins
Six months ago, Princess Sorrowlynn stood beside Prince Golmarr to defeat the glass dragon. But when the prince almost killed her after inheriting the dragon’s curse of hatred, he went into hiding to keep Sorrow safe . . . from himself.
Now the princess has been training to become a great warrior, with the hope of finding Golmarr. But her search proves difficult when she discovers she has been wed to the prince of an enemy kingdom. Desperate to end her forced marriage and be reunited with her true love, Sorrow must find a way to escape her captor husband. But there’s just one more dangerous obstacle in her way. A two-headed dragon is hunting her and will stop at nothing until she is dead.
Can Sorrow summon the courage to wield the only sword that can defeat the beast and save her world from the destruction of the dragon’s curse?
Princess Sorrowlynn has been living and training with her betrothed’s family while he tries to overcome the emotions from the dragon he killed. But Sorrowlynn faces another obstacle with the man that she loves, when she discovers that her father has married her off to another prince instead. Her father thinks the marriage was for political reasons, but this new prince knows about her new magical abilities. Meanwhile, a two-headed dragon is hunting Sorrowlynn and she begins having visions of a young woman asking for her help.
The Dragon’s Curse is the second installment in an exciting, fantasy trilogy. Sorrowlynn is now a stronger person, with the bravery and fortitude that I was hoping she’d gain. This latest story is well-paced, with plenty of action, drama, mystery, and a bit of romance. There is no middle book slump here. The characters are engaging and the plot is unpredictable. The suspense builds to a surprising finale – that left me wanting more and impatient for the final book in the series.
