"What if the Legends Are True?

Jason Masters doubted the myths that told of people taken through a portal to another realm and enslaved by dragons. But when he receives a cryptic message from his missing brother, he must uncover the truth and find the portal before it's too late. At the same time, Koren, a slave in the dragons' realm, discovers she has a gift that could either save or help doom her people. As Jason and Koren work to rescue the enslaved humans, a mystic prophecy surrounding a black egg may make all their efforts futile"

I am usually really good at picking out books that I know I will like. So when I found myself having a hard time getting into this book I was upset. I really want to like it but I found that I just could not.

The plot for one moved to slow for me and it was a bit confusing. As soon as you started the book, you were thrown into the story with hardly no back round on the legends on the Dragons. You learn secrets but all of it was cryptic. I had a hard time relating to Jason the character whom we follow in the book. Jason is younger and is pretty much kept in the dark about things.

Even now I have a hard time writing this review because I really wanted to like it. But in the end this book is just not for me.

I give it 3 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. Sorry the book wasn't for you. I haven't heard of this one before. I've read quite a few slow moving books lately, and now I need something fast paced and fun!!

  2. Aww that's too bad. I've seen this around and thought it looked good too.

  3. I hate it when that happens. Sorry it wasn't for you.

  4. I've never even heard of this book before, but I'm kind of a fan of dragons so I was hoping when I saw the cover you would have given it your stamp of approval! I definitely don't like being confused or feeling like I was dropped into the middle of a series without knowing it, so I'll pass on this one! Thanks Savy:)

  5. When a book provides only ambiguous descriptions I get to feeling frustrated too. (Sorry for your displeasure - I hate being disappointed with a book.)

    Here's a positive idea ... I'm granting you with a fabulous blog award (it's kind of fun, actually ... hope you decide to participate). See my book blog, for details on how to collect.)

    Here's a personalized image if you'd like to use it:

  6. It's ashamed that you didn't find the mythology better developed. I hate when that happens. Hopefully your next read will be much better. :D

  7. I haven't heard of this one, but I think I'm going to skip it for now.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  8. Oh, I love the fact that it is about dragons, but no, don't think it is for me either. Thanks for the honest review.

  9. I had not heard of this one and it looks like I wouldn't have like that much either =/

    Thanks for the honest review Savy! =D

  10. It sucks that this book was a disappoint especially that you were really looking forward to it.

  11. I read this book too, and sadly I couldn't connect with the story either. IMHO it could have used a real good polish (editing).

  12. It's a pity it didn't come up to expectations, because it does sound good and the cover is great. Thanks for your honesty.
