Legend of the Touched Book Review


Darien and Tai Oceina have not been married for long, but already they have one of the most complicated relationships and it hasn't even been a year yet. He is the leader of a nation and a dragon. She is carrying their first child who is supposed to be “the answer”. As Darien dives further into the politics of his people, a wedge is driven deeper between him and his wife.

Twin brothers Jason and Matthias Inero were always inseparable. For the first time in their lives they are apart from each other. Matt continues to do the will of their father, the corrupted Dragon Lord of the Inero, while Jason has fled with his bride to an island where he can forget about everything. Or try to. Being possessed by a demon makes that hard to achieve, and as the creature fights to control his body, Jason discovers a lot of shocking truths about his lineage and destiny.

The two worlds of fire and water collide as both dragon tribes prepare for war with the other. Matthias is determined to crush Darien's people. Only an ancient spell will give Darien enough power to fight back and have any hope at winning. The spell is complicated however and requires all four dragon tribes to work together in harmony. Something that is a lot easier said than done.

My Review
 

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  This is book 3 of The Dragon Saga Series.  Darien and Tai are finally crazy in love and they are now expecting their first son Ethan.  As time progresses Tai feels unprepared to be a mom.  This only adds to his stress, as he leads the Ociena people and braces them for war. 

Jason and Matthias are beginning to drift apart as Matthias continues to do their father’s bidding.  Jason and Gwen escape to an island to forget about the impending war that haunts him.  He finds out the truth about his family history which will certainly shock you.  Added to that, since the ritual, he now has an unwelcomed guest in his head.  He has yet to tell Gwen, but she already senses that something is wrong.  Matthias’ wife, Kat is pregnant with the first girl baby in dragon history.

The war is about to begin, will Matthias have enough power to overtake the Ociena people?  Will Jason aid his brother or betray him?

This was an amazing book and great page turner.  It finally ties in everything from book one and two.  I think the most surprising character in this book would have been Alex, by the end of the novel he’s pretty come into his own and his fate is sealed.  Out of all of the characters, Jason is my favorite.  No matter what seemed to happen to him, he was determined to do the right thing.  I was drawn in by the characters immediately,  there were moments my heart ached for Navi and Tai.  If you love clean sci-fi/fantasy novels, you should read awesome series!
