H.L. Burke [Read] Dragon's Bride

review Dragon's Bride

Book four in the Dragon and the Scholar SagaA Fantasy RomanceDragon Prince Ewan has promised his beloved Shannon that he will become a man again or die in the attempt Now he will do anything to make good on that promiseWith the aid of his scholarly friend Martin Ewan consults the great Dragon ueen Harviss who offers him a uniue solution return to. It s always a sad moment reaching the end of a series and waving farewell to favourite characters Will the author produce a final triumphant flourish or will it fall a bit flat Will obstacles be swept aside too easily or will everything make perfect sense Fortunately the author got pretty much everything right in this Ewan and Shannon s story was tied up in a very satisfactory way bad guys got their comeuppance good guys got their reward and even the time travel worked out very neatlyLet s start with Ewan and Shannon I was always very pleased that Ewan embraced his dragon ness and Shannon was cool with it too even as they both had good reasons for wanting him to be human again It seemed likely to me that the end of the story would have to be bittersweet with one or both of them having to make a sacrifice But the author cleverly produced an ending that satisfied on every level I can t say than that without giving things away but I loved the final resolution PerfectThe sub plots were less interesting to me Ryan s chase round to find his son felt suspiciously like filler Shannon s pregnancy issues likewise and Acacia and Will seemed to be there solely as plot devices The resolution of Riley in particular felt very contrived and the rebellion never really rose to the occasion In the end I d have traded most of this for time with Ewan and MartinIt s tricky to do time travel plots without getting tied in knots or leaving plot holes big enough for a dragon to fly through There were some nice twists here that took me by surprise but it all fell into place very logically The fae were well drawn but I did find their magical powers a bit arm wavingly convenient at times How shall we get out of this particularly desperate mess Oh look here s someone with the power to just poof make it all go awayIn the end though this story was all about Ewan and Shannon and the resolution of it was note perfect although the sub plot niggles keep it to four stars

Dragon's Bride

The past to find Ewan's Fey ancestor and beg for her help Leaving Shannon behind Ewan and Martin travel to a dangerous past and fall into the clutches of a powerful Fey ueen Meanwhile Shannon finds herself alone and with child Unable to sit still with her husband absent she joins with Ryan of Westshire in the prince's desperate search for his yo. This fourth and final novel in the Dragon and the Scholar series contains a brilliantly written dual plot is there a better way to say two subplots woven into one story that is eual parts frustrating and captivatingFirst off the fey terrifyingly fascinating and just all around awesome I love their lack of respect for physics and how they explain this mentality Meeting this race made the time travel something I don t usually like worth itAside from time travel I think the most frustrating part was how Ewan and Shannon handled being separated from each other Or perhaps the loose ends still dangling after the last page For instance why did Acacia come suealing for Will She was introduced as such a strong and interesting character but dropped off the pages once her purpose was spent I think there could almost be a fifth book featuring some of the minor characters I d definitely read itH L Burke has a wonderful talent for writing fairy tale flavored fantasy and I can t wait to see what she has up her sleeve nextThanks to H L Burke for sending me a free digital copy of Dragon s Bride to beta read

H.L. Burke º 7 Summary

This last book in the series was really different and at first I wasn t sure I liked the change of time and place But the life threatening adventure that Ewan and Martin experience adds to the depth of the overall story The heart breaking situation really resonated with me and made me love these characters even But the BEST part about this entire series is the absolutely perfect ending It will stay in my heart and mind forever

    I loved this book It is hopeful and lovingly written Sometimes you just need to read a good fairytale Well this is a great fairytale This series of the Scholar and the Dragon was well conceived expertly woven with characters that come to life and you want to either kill or root for I expect that once HL Burke is discovered by the public at large she is going to be very very famous
