I was engrossed from the beginning. I couldn't put this book down. I loved all the characters. So much raw passion. Clara did a great job with the details. I got goosebumps while reading. I could feel the connection of Ren with Axel, Joshua and Dean. My heart aches at the end. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the Dracian Legacy series. Thank you Quirky Blind Date with a Book for this opportunity. I found a new author to read.
This is a fantastic debut YA paranormal romance novel by Priya Kanaparti. It takes us slowly out of the dramatic every day teen life with a few hints of something magical going on, and then we're thrust into the frightening thick of it with Ren. Ren hasn't fully recovered yet from her parents' deaths when her life is altered drastically. She doesn't realize the strength within herself and comes across as wishy-washy. But Axel sees it. He's not only hot, but a great guide to bring her into the world of the Dracians. He's a good complement to Ren.
I found the world building and mythology most fascinating. Priya has prepared a solid base for what is to come in the series. Her writing style is clean and captures a powerful YA voice. I wasn't fond of the love triangle or instant love aspects of the story, but the plot carries great promise for where the series is headed.
There’s lots of kissing and intense make-out sessions. I mean LOTS. There was also a good deal of martial action and add in the magic, that makes for a romance-centric adventure to keep you turning the pages! I thought that the world building should have been done more and earlier in the story and it should have been clearer sooner who was who and what was what. There were a few inconsistencies, mainly this one part around midway through where Ren says to Axel “you could always give up the throne for me,” but we don’t hear anything about Axel :SPOILER: being a prince :SPOILER OVER: until past the 90% mark of the story. This version also cuts out the explanation about what Dean and Ren being “bonded” means and how they ended up that way and I thought that should have been elaborated more. Still, the story trots along at a good pace and there weren’t any “dead zones.”
I will say that Ren was more multi-dimensional in this version and doesn’t throw herself at Axel as easily, which I liked. She was good about sticking with decisions once they were made and not trying to back out. Though I wish she’d ditch her best friend. Pey annoys me. (Sorry, Pey.)
Axel is a dichotomy of sorts. He’s drop-dead gorgeous, carries magical daggers, rides a motorcycle, and favors leather. With that description, you’re probably expecting a bad boy, right? Nope. Axel is…oh, gosh he’s amazing. Sweet and romantic, yes, but also a talented young warrior driven by guilt and a need to save as many people as he can. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a dangerous boy with a conscience.
I mentioned Dean earlier, so I should probably talk a bit about him here. I want to hate Dean very badly, but the author does a good job of showing his vulnerable, non-cocky side just enough that he can’t be completely written off. I get frustrated with him and I can’t help but want to scream in his face that it’s his own fault Ren didn’t choose him because if he was good enough for her, he wouldn’t have spent his high school years screwing around with half their high school’s female students.
I adored Joshua, Ren’s older brother. He was overprotective of Ren and utterly precious with his girlfriend, Cassie. He’s the big brother nobody would mind having.
There were a few other characters who made their appearances. I laud the author for giving us glimpses into all of them, even when they weren’t central to the story. Even the characters who come across as bullies are given lines that hint at an unknown backstory and I loved that.
We’re told who the villain is earlier on and shown in no uncertain terms that Goarders are bad, but I felt like more should have been explained through the story—like why Ren feels drawn to a certain baddie, etc. At the end we learn how Ren could be the end of the Dracians, but I thought it should have been made clear just how Ren could save the Dracians. I suppose that’s for the future story installments.
In short, I like this series and I want to find out what happens next. There were some places I took issue, but I think it’s still a wonderful, original story and especially love that the hero isn’t a bad boy for once. I recommend this to fans of YA paranormal romance, especially ones who like swoon-worthy romance!
