***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
In Tallenmere, fate has a way of catching up with you…
Somewhere, hidden in the waters of the Southern Sea, lies an island unlike any other. Within the amber glow of its pyrogem-laden cliffs, legend says the very heart of the dragon god Drae keeps the island, and its occupants, alive.
Loralee Munroviel, daughter of Leogard’s High Priestess Arianne, had no idea what she would face when she arrived by boat ten years ago and was left alone in exile. All she knew about Draekoria’s inhabitants was written in one tattered notebook. Now, her life revolves around keeping Drae’s descendants happy. Never in her life did she imagine being a Dragon Keeper.
Captain Igrorio Everlyn, known as Sir Robert to his unit of Holy Paladins, has faced his share of hell, battling the evils of Emperor Sarvonn’s tyranny and the dark god Tyr’s abominations. But none of that compares to the ten years of hell he’s been without Loralee, presumed dead.
One freak storm changes everything. Now the two of them must fight to reestablish the delicate balance of the island before the dragons take things into their own hands. Through it all, they discover the secrets that kept them, and their hearts, exiled for a decade.
Let me start off by saying that yes this is the 3rd book in the Tallenmere series but it is completely stand alone. I repeat you do not have to have read either one of the 2 previous books to understand this one. That being said I will begin my review.
This book is completely spellbinding. It took a few chapters but once I was hooked I couldn’t put the book down. I was totally captivated by Loralee and Igrorio’s story. The writing is so beautiful it’s hard not to get completely caught up in the story.
The characters were so well written and likeable (or despicable depending on whom we are talking about). Of course my favorites were Loralee and Igrorio but I also liked how the supporting characters were more then just background scenery. They actually had depth and became just as much a part of the main story as Loralee and Igrorio.
Overall this is an excellent book full of beautiful imagery and loveable characters. I am definitely going to check out the first 2 in this series and I suggest everyone else does as well.
