It's not the only connection. All of our favorite characters from Always make an appearance via different incarnations. Simon aka Einarr is again the main character. This is the story of his first incarnation, which takes place on a different planet; a world of dragons and violence. After a mishap caused by two human boys the dragons of the world, who had hitherto had an uneasy peace with men, take revenge and wage a bloody war. This is the world Einarr is born into, and one he is destined to save, whether he wants to or not.
Einarr's father is the last of the dragon riders; brave warriors who, in the new war torn world have been forced to give up their titles. But his father has secretly maintained contact with his ancient friend, and by infusing his son unborn son with the dragon's magic, he becomes the father to the Lone Hero, a figure prophesied to save the world. But when dragons destroy their village, Einarr and his family are forced to live on the run, hiding out in caves ad forests. This strange, isolated life leaves Einarr with heavy scars that he must learn to heal in order to fulfill his destiny.
DM ytaes has come up with a genius series idea; by using reincarnation it allows us to follow our favorite characters again and again, but instead of being stuck in the same lifetime/story line there is so enough flexibility to keep even the most finicky reader entertained.
I've been looking forward to this sequel since I finished Always and enjoyed it just as much, if not more, than I thought I would.
Einarr leaves the spiritual realm to be born a half dragon to Lord Zavat ( a Grand Dragon and leader of his kind). The two must find a way to save the human race from annihilation at the hands of the evil dragon, Lord Tsaemo.
As the story unfolds, Einarr is trained not only in combat, but also learns the wide variety of species that comprise Dragonkind. He finds that, like humans, dragons also have those that are evil and those that are good.
I highly recommend this fantastic tale of war and love. DM Yates develops marvelous main characters that the reader will cheer and cry for
For those that love dragon stories such as Eragon or The Dragonriders of Pern, The Lone Hero is a must read..
Similarly the main hero is far from perfect, rather he is a well developed character with all the rough edges his experiences would leave. Add in fast moving action and page turning writing and you have a book that kept me up much too late several nights in a row. Highly recommended.
