Celeste and Brock remain true to their characters as seen in previous stories. The new characters that are introduced (Mirhana, Landon, Jeslyn, and Gillespie) are all just as well-developed. Their physical descriptions as well as the descriptions of their "powers" make them easy to picture.
Once again the different creatures that they encounter are described in detail. I can almost feel how soft Melwyn's fur is or smell the odor of the deadwalkers. There are so many more that I loved but I can't say anything without giving too much about the story away.
The settings are amazing. I felt like I was sitting there watching everything happen. I don't want to give anything away but I want to go to the place where Landon discovers who he truly is!
The storyline is exciting and fast-paced with a lot of twists. It isn't so complicated that you can't easily follow it either. Everything flows very well and I found myself literally biting my nails (I know, I know, bad habit) toward the end of the book.
I would recommend at least reading Cursed in Shadow before reading this one.
Mirhana is a twin-born elf raised by witches due to a long held tradition that the one of any twins born are given to the witches as a sacrifice. But far from sacrificed, Mirhana is raised well and taught to use her magic to its maximum potential. Because she looks more human than elf, her powers tend to be underestimated by her enemies. And as a result of dwelling centuries among the short-lived and physically vulnerable humans, she has learned not to get attached.
Prince Landon is heir to a large kingdom and betrothed to woman he’s never met for the benefit and protection of his people. While he is sought by an evil sorceress for reasons not quite clear early in the story, his heart is enraptured by the bold and brave Mirhana.
He and his companion join forces with Mirhana and her recently discovered twin to battle the mounting evil in their lands. The group of gifted warriors bands together on a quest to confront the unknown evil threatening their freedom and their lives.
In the process, Mirhana and Landon clash wits and wills and battle an obvious attraction that can never be—because Landon is betrothed and Mirhana has closed off herself to love.
But all is fair in love and magic and the two continually find themselves together and unable to deny the chemistry between them.
Son of Dragons is a harrowing adventure of epic proportions set in a world full of magic and mayhem. I barely had time to catch my breath before a new crisis arrived. For fans of Tolkein and romance, Son of Dragons will not disappoint. The world is rich and vibrant, but so fast-paced you better hold onto your butts.
I highly recommend this wonderful fantasy adventure romance.
The main character is a twin born Elf named Mirhana. Picture a cross between Buffy the Vampire Slayer (television, not the movie) the pretty Elvin love interest in the Trilogy of the Rings, The Sorceress from 'The Scorpion King', and Sigourney Weaver from any of the Sci-Fi parts she has had, and make her a real badass, and you have described a pale imitation of Mirhana.
The book has unrequited love, evil mechanisms by bad actors, and a refreshing spin on the old themes that you find in all the rest of these fantasy books. I do not want to tell you the whole story here. To get that, you have to buy the book.
If you enjoy tales of the sword and sorcery variety, with strong female characters that are more likely to hack a lad up than to weep on his shoulders, then this is the book for you. My former wife once pointed out that I have a thing for these strong women characters. I am fairly sure she did not mean that nicely, but she was right. My ex was no Buffy.
As to the book, the cover is well done, the story flows well, you will not be distracted by typos or ragged composition, and the story telling is a thing of wonder. If you like fantasy, or just well written literature, this will make a good weekend of reading for you.
