In the fast-paced final volume of St. John's popular medieval paranormal series (Heart of the Hunter, etc.), Randwulf of Greycliff lives only to avenge his slain wife and child, but he temporarily puts aside his quest after a shipwreck washes him ashore on the north English coast near a remote forest. There he's found by Serena, an innocent young maiden who has lived her entire 19 years alone with her mother in the ancient woods—and who possesses the gift of Knowing, which enables her to see into the minds and hearts of others if she touches them. Brief physical contact with Rand shows Serena his black hatred. However, since this gentle child of the forest also sees the hurt and grief Rand feels, her healing nature is drawn to him. When the outside world encroaches on their isolation, Serena defies her mother and gives her heart to Rand with consequences that almost prove disastrous. As usual, RITA Award finalist St. John peoples her tale with vibrant and engaging characters. (Dec.)

Again, the characters are well drawn and interesting. Particularly enjoyable is Serenna, the 19 yr. old wood nymph with a magical touch. Despite her innocence and guilelessness manor, she is wise in many ways. The extreme sheltering of Serenna from the rest of the world gives an interesting dimension to this fantasy style romance.
Rand, the hero, is consumed with avenging the horrific deaths of his wife and young son. He is traveling to Scotland seeking the last piece of the Dragon Chalise in order to draw forth the murderer. During his shipboard trip, and during a storm, Rand finds himself in a fight to the death. This results in him being lost overboard and eventually washing upon shore near death.
The story shows the affect that the sweet and caring Serenna has on the hate-filled and cold-hearted Rand. Of course there is the suspense and urgency surrounding the need to complete the Chalise that propels the story at a rapid pace. Good writing and an interesting plot have created a most enjoyable book and trilogy!
Dragon Chalice is a bit fantasy but for the paranormal romance reader you will not miss a bigger paranormal storyline AT ALL. Ms. Adrian writes great characters , great men, great struggle, perfect villians ( had to change from "great" lol ) and good femaile heroines. The second Dragon Chalice is my fav but they are all really really good and worth far far more than $3.99 … hurry and take advantage of this crazy price for an awesome series. EXCELLENT.
Will the feelings Rand starts to have for Serena cause him to give up his quest to find the last part of the chalice or will his desire for revenge cause him to lose her? Also who are Serena and Calander and where did her powers come from and why do they live in the glade away from everyone. What secret does Calander have?
In this the third and last book of the Dragon Chalice series the answers will come with a twist at the end that I didn't see coming till the very last.
