  • Not what I was hoping for

    By M3ssi4h
    Up until this point, I could not get enough of this series. I never like leaving negative comments, but this book just seemed like a filler and just dragged on. I truly hope this series is soon coming to a conclusion, as I don’t know if I will continue with this set of books.
  • Awesome read!

    By Tbell4571
    Awesome read! Action packed and exciting read. It had me from the beginning to end. I couldn’t put it down. Lexi’s powers are coming in nicely. Cole shows his love for Loxi. His powers were getting stronger and he didn’t want to cause more harm than good. Loved new life brought back to the land. Grab this one you will not be disappointed.
  • Well done, love all the characters and realms.

    Looking forward to the next book.
  • Action Packed and Pulling all of the heart strings

    By iammommaP
    There are too adjectives to choose to describe how amazing this book is. Things are happening from page 1 to The End. Cole and Lexi are in the battle for their lives and the future of all the realms is dependent on the outcome. Can they regain the throne? Will Lexi be able to save Cole from the darkness that threatens. Will we lose any one else. All I can say is this series is the gift that keeps on giving. Be ready for a book to give you all the feels. I wish I could give it a hundred stars. It’s amazing.
  • AMAZING! Need more!

    By Rebel Leah
    Wow!! I mean WOW! This adventure has been nonstop since book 1. Lexi and Cole are just amazing together. This book is definitely a page-turner and the ending had me wanting more. One thing I can say is I absolutely love this book, this series and most definitely this author! She has a way of bringing you into the story! I cannot give anything away but I will say you won’t be disappointed. Anxiously waiting for the next book!
  • Great book

    By 5sosdirectioner
    I was ready for some answers in this book. It starts out slow. I think it is from all the information pact into it. Once you get into the first chapter it is all moving fast. Lexi and Cole have so much going on. I am afraid for Cole. That shadow reaving stuff has me wondering if it is going to take him over eventually. Lexi is still learning her powers. She is supper bad butt. We know at this point we are going to war. But they need to figure out who to take. This journey was a lot. We see some people we thought was on our side not so much now. We also get to meet some great new characters. This book is going to have you screaming at the end. I was not ready for the last part of this book. You are going to want to start with book one and read all of them if you haven't. Great story to read over the weekend.
  • Loved it

    By Justucker0401
    Omg, this series just keeps knocking it out of the park, seriously my new favorite series by Brenda. I’m not sure my heart can take it with all that’s going on, preparing for war, new characters, deep sole binding love and darkness and fricken Dragons!!! I am always so involved in Brenda’s writing and series, I always feel like I am there in the pages living what’s unfolding. I can’t wait to see what happens with the Lord, it’s going to be epic!!!!
  • Have Kleenex handy!

    By not happy camper!!
    OMG this book blew me away! So many emotions. Love, fear, happiness and sadness ( hence the needing Kleenex ). We have dragons, lots of them, in this story. Nicely done too. I can’t say much due to spoilers. But, I highly recommend this book. Grab it now, begin. You are very welcome. I’ll be in the corner sobbing. ( In a good, cathartic way. )
  • Amazing!!

    By Steelazfanz1
    This series just keeps getting better and better, but it also keeps me on the edge of my seat as well! The Lord sets them up in a way he knows he will win, but he truly underestimated Cole. Cole knows he must sacrifice himself in order to take the Lord down and make sure Lexi can rule over Dragonia like she should be. Lexi must stay strong so when the time comes she can hopefully bring Cole back to her. His love for her is so great that even though he knows he will probably be lost to the shadows forever, he doesn’t even pause to do what needs to be done! Come back to us all Cole!! Lexi needs you and so do we!!!!
  • Omg Amazing.

    By GMMoody66
    I loved every second of this book!! Yes it’s time to battle, time to gather your forces, time to face the Lord and his dragons. I cried, oh my gosh did I cry. Yep Cole will protect Lexi at all costs. But does she want him to give his all? No of course not she loves him. Their love is epic. It’s what dreams are made of. This book is breathtaking and absolutely amazing. You’ll love every minute and won’t be able to put it down.
