For all of you who thought it impossible for a series to be remarkable in to consecutive volumes; Legend of the Touched, is clear evidence to the contrary.
Picking up right where Legend of the Inero Dragon left off. Young Inero princes Matthias and Jason have fallen into place in their father's plot to war with the Oceina Dragons.
Jason and Gwen are getting closer; while brother Matthias and his lady love are finding that love and marriage are not all wine and roses.
This is a wonderful third book. Its author does a wonderful job in continuing the story, while not allowing the plot to lag, the characters to become stale, or the action to fizzle.
If anything these elements are taken to new and amazing heights in this third read.
Darien and Tai Oceina have not been married for long, but already they have one of the most complicated relationships. He is a dragon and the leader of a nation. 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.
