Today I’m bringing attention to the book Odriel’s Heirs by Hayley Reese Chow. I’ll take you through the blurb, about the author, and a few tour excerpts! If you’d like to follow along with the tour, you can find the full tour schedule here.
The brave, burning with fire, harnessed the Dragon’s Rage….
As the Dragon Heir, seventeen-year-old Kaia inherited the power of flame to protect her homeland from a godlike necromancer’s undead army. But after centuries of peace, the necromancer has faded to myth, and the Dragon Heir is feared by the people. Persecuted and cast out, Kaia struggles to embrace and control her seemingly useless gift while confined to her family’s farm.
But when the necromancer’s undead terrorize the land once again, Kaia runs away to join the battle.
With the help of her childhood rival, the handsome Shadow Heir, and a snarky, cursed cat, Kaia must figure out how to control both her fire and her confidence in time to save Okarria. If she fails, she will sacrifice her family, her new friends, and the enchanting world she has only just begun to see.
And time is running out.

What readers have to say
This feels like such a well-executed and well thought out book that I was just turning the pages as quick as I could go to find out more, especially during the battle scenes as I was so worried the author would kill off my favourite characters.Read to Ramble
The ending is just perfect but makes you want to pick up the next book to see what happens in the future. There’s just something so brilliant about the writing in this story. I love how I was instantly swept away with all the descriptions and how much I felt sucked into the story. It’s definitely one of the best fantasy books I’ve read and one I’ll definitely re-read again.The Strawberry Post
This is a fast-paced book that packs a lot in, but I don’t think this is an issue. The magic and creatures were so interesting, and I could easily picture them whilst reading. This was a fun fantasy read, with the addition of a rivals-to-lovers romance!Lost in Neverland
Gus, Kaia’s ragehound, stole my heart. I adore a faithful dog companion and Gus more than filled the role. I’ve had dogs in the past that spoke to me in my heart the way Gus does with Kaia. He’s an amazingly well-written character.Gina Rae Mitchell
We are propelled into this spellbinding world where shocking revelations are made, not everyone is as they seem, and knowing friend from foe isn’t always easy. It’s action packed and the final battle had me gripped wondering who would be the victor. It left me wanting more, and luckily it’s the first book in the series, and I can’t wait to step back into this magical world.BookswithDanSamEnd
