Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: The Dragonlords of Xandakar #3
Title: Dragon Green: A Vision Unseen
Author: Macy Babineaux
Publisher: Tule Publishing
Published: December 1st, 2016
This is the third novel in this paranormal, alternative worlds series and is another riveting read, a real page turner that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Dr Brynn Mulbrook is an archeology professor who is somewhat obsessed with the idea that there are alternative realities – so much so that she has been ostracised by her peers. She’s now investigating independently, following clues and endeavouring to read mysterious texts.
Vander Tanglevine is the new, relatively young King of the Emerald Isle and a dragon shifter. One of his duties is to swim to consult with the merfolk oracle when she signals by turning the sea pink. The revelations made result in him having to travel to Earth to obtain a powerful weapon, a trident, with which to overcome the enemies foretold by the Oracle. His journey takes him straight to Brynn and the two set out to successfully recover the hidden weapon. Working together awakens unexpected feelings between them but Vander has to return in time for his arranged marriage to the princess of the dark swamps, Nevra Nightshadow, though the two have only met briefly.
When a powerful siren lures Vander his only chance of escaping is if Brynn comes to his rescue. However, to do that she needs to travel to his world, a world she doesn’t know and she isn’t sure who she can trust.
Brynn is a smart, feisty and determined young lady. She’s goal orientated and absolutely convinced about the existence of alternative worlds, so she isn’t so surprised when she meets Vander. It is a fast paced story which flows brilliantly. The characters grow and develop within the story, especially Vander who is initially quite content to laze on the beach doing very little but develops into a more worthy hero and Kingly presence, but only after experiencing the effect of a siren, maniacal mermaids, being disheartened and finally rescued. With danger, double dealers, a powerful demon and so much more, this is a great read that I have no hesitation in highly recommending it – I’m really looking forward to reading the next book in this dragon series.
Many thanks to the author for gifting me an ARC of this novel with no obligation. This is my honest review.
Can love overcome the spell of the siren’s song?
Vander Tanglevine is the young king of the Emerald Isle. But a meeting with the merfolk oracle will send him on a journey to earth to recover an ancient weapon he will need in the fight ahead. There he meets Dr. Brynn Mulbrook, an archaeology professor at a small West Texas college, ostracized by her colleagues for spending her career trying to prove the existence of an alternate world.
As she helps him find what he’s looking for, they begin to develop unexpected feelings for each other. But Vander has to return to his world to be wed to the princess of the dark swamps, Nevra Nightshadow. When a powerful siren lures Vander into the depths of the ocean, Brynn will have to find a way to travel to his world to help him.
She’s the only one who can.
Dragon Green: A Vision Unseen is the third book in the Dragonlords of Xandakar series. It has a happy ending and a little bit of steam, and it mostly stands on its own.
