Did you say dragons? @kayelleallen #scifi #dragons #kindleunlimited

Pietas takes dragons, adds his twin sister Dessy and no matter how he does the math, it equals trouble. After a literal lifetime away, his sister is back and as usual, brings chaos into the mix.

Did you say dragons?

The nameless, empathic bond between him and his twin drew Pietas, and he caressed Dessy's cheek with the back of his fingers. "Dess, have you--" He yanked back his hand, biting off the words. "Never mind."
"It's all right. Go ahead. Ask me."
He held her gaze, reading the depth of her knowledge with the innate connection their bond afforded him. "Have you-- No." He turned away. "Never mind. It wasn't important. Forget I said anything."
The single word stopped him cold. He faced her, chin lifted. "What?"
"You heard me. Dragons. That's what you wanted to ask, isn't it? If I've been dreaming about dragons." She unzipped her leathers down to her rounded bosom, and pulled out a fine chain dangling a dragon charm. "In the dreams, yours are teal and silver. Mine are ruby and gold."
He returned to her, and took the pendant in hand. The golden creature sparkled, its eyes glistening as if wet with blood. "Beautiful." He rubbed a thumb over it, and the dragon warmed to his touch. He smiled into Dessy's pale eyes. "How often do you dream them?"
"Every night. Tas, what does it mean?"
At hearing her childhood name for him, he dropped the pendant. "Dragons are primal protectors. They symbolize defeat of the beast within and show selfless courage."
She tucked the chain back inside her top. "How do you know that?"
"How do you not?"
She called him a rude name, and shoved him.
It broke the tension, and he laughed. "Come on, Sis. Let's do what you came to do and be done with it. I'm busy."
"Fine, you big spoilsport. You never let me have any fun."
"Father wouldn't approve if I did."
"And we all know how much you want Father's approval."
One thousand nine hundred and sixteen years old, and the truth behind her teasing still stung. Pietas spun away from her and crossed the room.

Read Bringer of Chaos by Kayelle Allen

Two enemy warriors: one human, one immortal. Different in belief, alike in spirit, marooned together on an alien world.
Imprisoned and in isolation over a year without food or water, the immortal Pietas survives. Though broken in body, his intellect and will are intact, thanks to Six, the special ops warrior who captured him, but kept him sane. The warrior had no hand in his deprivation and, like Pietas, was betrayed by his own kind. When Pietas is abandoned on an alien world with nothing but his honor--and Six--he must find and rejoin other immortal exiles. After centuries of war, Pietas detests humans and kills them on sight, but he is too damaged to continue on his own. Though he despises needing help, he allows Six to nurture and restore him to full strength, and then accompany him. As they cross the planet together on foot, the immortal begins to wonder if he has found his first human friend, or if Six is loyal only because Pietas could keep the others from tearing him to shreds. This human will either be his closest living friend, or the one whose betrayal will trigger all-out vengeance by the most powerful immortal ever born.
Immortal. Warrior. Outcasts. Traitors took everything. Except their honor.
