“The Choice” by Nora Roberts is the epic conclusion to the three-part Dragon Heart Legacy series. We pick up as Breen is getting ready for the final battle and thankfully she has the help of Keegan, Marco, and all her friends and family in Talamh. Throughout the book there is more love and loss, it leaves one excited for what is to come on the next page.
The loss of the dragons was explained so beautifully, it made up for what I found lacking in the last book. I felt triumph when Breen confronted her mother and there was a sense of peace that a chapter of her life is finally settled. I felt the ending was wrapped up too quickly and wished for more during the final battle and the end between Breen and Keegan.
I would recommend this series to those who like a little bit of magic but also warn them about bloodshed and the darkness. I felt this book was a great book that had adventure, love, a family that is not only blood-related, and strong friendships. I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
From the back cover:
The conclusion of the epic trilogy from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Awakening and The Becoming.
Talamh is a land of green hills, high mountains, deep forests, and seas, where magicks thrive. But portals allow for passage in and out―and ultimately, each must choose their place, and choose between good and evil, war and peace, life and death…
Breen Siobhan Kelly grew up in the world of Man and was once unaware of her true nature. Now she is in Talamh, trying to heal after a terrible battle and heartbreaking losses. Her grandfather, the dark god Odran, has been defeated in his attempt to rule over Talamh, and over Breen―for now.
With the enemy cast out and the portal sealed, this is a time to rest and to prepare. Breen spreads her wings and realizes a power she’s never experienced before. It’s also a time for celebrations―of her first Christmas in both Talamh and Ireland, of solstice and weddings and births―and daring to find joy again in the wake of sorrow. She rededicates herself to writing her stories, and when his duties as taoiseach permit, she is together with Keegan, who has trained her as a warrior and whom she has grown to love.
It’s Keegan who’s at her side when the enemy’s witches, traitorous and power-mad, appear to her in her sleep, practicing black magick, sacrificing the innocent, and plotting a brutal destruction for Breen. And soon, united with him and with all of Talamh, she will seek out those in desperate need of rescue, and confront the darkness with every weapon she has: her sword, her magicks―and her courage…
