Be sure to check out this great series by J.A. Culican! I’ve read them both, and they’re wonderful! Full of adventure and surprises, ideal for even young adult readers, and who doesn’t love a good book about dragons? 🙂
The Prince Returns (The Keeper of Dragons #1)
How would you react if you found out you were a dragon?
Not just any dragon-the one who was fated to save all that was deemed true.
On his 18th birthday, Cole’s once humdrum life spirals into an uncontrollable battle for life or death. First, he learns that his family isn’t really his own and his birth parents are actually dragons. With that legacy comes a special calling; devoting an eternity to protecting all true beings from creatures bent on controlling the Earth and bringing an end to dragons.
As the newly-minted Prince of Ochana, Cole is also the Keeper of Dragons and his first task is to keep the nefarious farro-fallen fairies-at bay. With no formal training, no control of his mahier-dragon magic, and fear like he’s never experienced before, will Cole be able to reach outside of his human side and embrace his destiny in time to defeat the farros?
My personal review after reading:
What a wonderful book! I was able to sit and read it in a day’s time, but there is so much going on in this book! It’s about a high school graduate with no plans for college or life goals discovering he was ‘adopted’ of sorts, then discovering he is both a dragon-shifter and a prince in one fell swoop…along with learning many details of the background of his new home and all the other dragon kin that live there. From fallen fairies to the royal debut of Prince Colton of Ochana, this is a magical experience all in and of itself. I can’t wait to read future volumes of this series to discover how much Cole grows while adjusting to his new lifestyle.
The Elven Alliance (The Keeper of Dragons #2)
The fates have spoken.
Cole and Eva are the Keeper of Dragons – the only ones who can save all true beings from a time of fear.
Cole finds himself unstable, unpredictable and volatile. He has no control of the tilium-fairy magic he stole from the farros. Out of options, the dragons turn to a once ally – the elves – for help. Curious about the dragon who wields both dragon and fairy magic, they accept – but on their terms only. The dragons must submit to Prince Gaber and his rules.
A new enemy.
Queen Tana continues to haunt Cole’s dreams, as a new enemy shows his face – another fallen enemy with a bigger agenda than the farros-fallen fairies; an enemy stronger and smarter; an enemy with an army that could destroy all true beings. Enter King Eldrick of the eldens-the fallen elves.
Sometimes evil wins.
My take on this book after reading:
|I absolutely love this series. There is a wide variety of supernatural beings present in this novel, and the fantastic adventures embarked upon in this book are airtight and make for an enjoyable read for all audiences. If you’re a fan of high adventures and dragon-shifters, pick up this book. I guarantee it’s for you!|
