As a wolf shifter with razor-sharp senses, Jessa Lebron can perceive the slightest change in the air. And her lupine instincts go into overdrive right before her mother, who abandoned her years ago, returns to the pack bearing secrets that change everything.
The biggest secret of all: Jessa is dragon marked, a designation that places her in grave danger. The dragon marked are destined to resurrect the dragon king, a fearsome ancient warmonger. And they must be eliminated.
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to live as a shifter, or a vampire, or a troll? Well, maybe not a troll, but you get my drift. To live in one of the fantasy worlds we immerse ourselves when we pick up a book of this genre. To live in a community that takes care of each other and protects their own to the detriment of themselves? I would love to be Jessa. To have the Compass boys at my back, no matter what. To be loved as deeply as she is and to love another like she does.
I liked the way the author presented the abandonment my Jessa’s mom and her reappearance of her with her “surprise.
I enjoy the idea of a possible love triangle/quadrangle/ true mate angle. I hope in my heart of hearts that she chooses to address her emotions and those of Braxton’s, but I feel like there could be something with Louis or, at least, I would feel bad if he gets left out in the cold. This series could easily be a Twilight/ Vampire Diaries story with Team Braxton/Maximillian/Louis banners floating around.
I can’t wait to see what the bear shifters have against the Lebron’s and how Jessa is going to help in the war that is coming. I wonder if she will be a positive player or if she will end up on the other side of the fence.
I liked this book. It was sitting on my TBR list for NetGalley for longer than it should have and am sad I didn’t make it a priority as it is my preferred genre and is pretty much the type of story I like to read on any given day. It has the best dialogue without many he/she said moments, or if there are, they aren’t very noticeable. I followed the end of the book with an immediate search and seizure of book 2, Dragon Mystics and am happily plotting my alone time with the next chapter of Jessa’ adventures.
I would like to thank NetGalley, the author and the publisher for allowing me a free digital copy in return for an honest opinion.
About the author:
Jaymin Eve has a passion for reading, writing, and arithmetic … okay, maybe not the last one but definitely the first two. She loves surrounding herself with the best things in life: her two girls, a good book, and chocolate.
Living on the beautiful Gold Coast, in Australia, the family loves spending lots of time on the beach. And traveling as frequently as possible.
When Jaymin isn’t trying to wrangle two daughters, a puppy, and her husband, you will find her hiding in a corner trying desperately to write her stories (without little fingers pressing random keys). She asks forgiveness if you notice the occasional sskkkkssjs appearing in her book, her children are proud of their contribution.
She’d love it if you contacted her, giving feedback or just to have a chat.
