Brian Coari | 6 comments Hey experts, I've been looking for this book for about 12 years and I'm really excited to see if someone can help me! Here's what I remember of the plot:

A young man needs to become a king due to a death in the family. The reason it needs to be him is due to a genetic trait in his family that will transform him into a fire-breathing monster, maybe a dragon or similar, and he can use his powers to defend the kingdom. In his spare time between turning into a monster he also survives assassination attempts and, oddly, tends to a flower garden.

The leader of the invading country was really interesting to me. His country used owls in combat, and there's a scene where he walks into a dinner party followed by hundreds of owls, and they tear the place apart. Finding the book would be worth it to re-read that chapter alone.

I don't remember much else, there's a subplot with the main character's sister who I think is studying or something. I also think I remember it being a female author, but I'm not 100% certain on that.

It is not related to Game of Thrones or Guardians of Ga'Hoole, which come up any time I reference dragons or owls, respectively :).

Any help is appreciated, and thank you for your time!
