Shannon Pemrick is a new author for me, but based on her Destiny (Experimental Heart Book 1), I’m promising myself that we will become well acquainted. I love the concept of this book, with its lead Eira seeking to escape from a her life as a designed emotionless tool of war. I love how she is drawn to Raikidan and the whole way that a dragon is brought into the tale. I love the plot and writing, and supporting cast. Generally I pretty much live this novel. But for the fact that I’m literally dictating this review to my husband from my hospital bed I could go on and on with praises - the book definitely deserves it. Since I can’t do that I will simply note that the book is most definitely one to read, it is easy to highly recommended and I’m definitely looking forward to book 2.
