Breen is back in Talamh but this time her best friend Marco is with her to help her face what is to come. Breen is growing stronger in her magic and the ability to defend herself. She is learning more about Talamh and the history of her family. After her visit to the capital, to meet those on the council and also witness the judgment hearings, Breen gains new allies and also villains. Her biggest ally is her very own dragon.
This second installment is more about Breen learning more of what she is capable of and also explore the romance between her and Keegan. We also learn more about Odran and what he is doing to cause harm and havoc in Talamh.
I struggled a bit with this one as I wanted to know more about the history of dragons and why they have only one rider. This book definitely needs to be read along with the first book. I am truly hoping for a happy ending in the last book of the series. A great sequel, a page-turner, five out of five.
From the back cover:
The world of magick and the world of man have long been estranged from one another. But some can walk between the two—including Breen Siobhan Kelly. She has just returned to Talamh, with her friend, Marco, who’s dazzled and disoriented by this realm—a place filled with dragons and faeries and mermaids (but no WiFi, to his chagrin). In Talamh, Breen is not the ordinary young schoolteacher he knew her as. Here she is learning to embrace the powers of her true identity. Marco is welcomed kindly by her people—and by Keegan, leader of the Fey. Keegan has trained Breen as a warrior, and his yearning for her has grown along with his admiration of her strength and skills.
But one member of Breen’s bloodline is not there to embrace her. Her grandfather, the outcast god Odran, plots to destroy Talamh—and now all must unite to defeat his dark forces. There will be losses and sorrows, betrayal and bloodshed. But through it, Breen Siobhan Kelly will take the next step on the journey to becoming all that she was born to be.
