Mini-Review: The Dragons Saga: Legend of the Oceina Dragon

The Dragon Saga: Legend of the Oceina Dragon by J.F. Jenkins
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Pages: 183 (Ereader)
Source: Author

Darien Oceina is the youngest son of the Great Dragon Lord of the Water. For years he's loved and cherished Tai Dawson from afar. Tai is a simple, ordinary girl who doesn't even know Darien exists. On his eighteenth birthday, he chooses her as his wife. But there’s one problem: She thinks his choice means she's going to be offered as a sacrifice to the Dragon Lord, but instead, she’s forced to move to his home, far away, to give up her life and be his bride.

When she first sees Darien after the ceremony, she doesn’t expect to feel anything but hatred toward him. The two are struggling with the complications of a new marriage when their nation is attacked by a rival dragon species. Together they learn to love one another while they struggle to stay one step ahead in a game where the prize is their survival

My Rating:
Quick Thoughts: Magical. Romantic. Love. Dragons. Secrets.
I really love this book more than I ever expected.  The take on dragons defy any traditional folklore.  I felt like I was reading something fresh and found myself entranced.  The characters are memorable but not perfect.  The romance is sweet and perfect BUT Tai's reaction to it makes it much more genuine and realistic.  Although I was interested from the start, I feel like the beginning is a bit bumpy in terms of character development and transitions could be a bit jolting at times.  But I just LOVE the storytelling.  It is truly a magical read.  This is a series I would definitely continue.
