YES-YES-YES--getting better with each book!
Our Bailey is growing, no longer able to age, the strength to take down dragons. With her humanity intact, a heart that is only growing, and most importantly--the brains to use it all well.
This time Bailey is a fully trained Dragon Killer and is known as such. In this story she is forced to follow the path of a prophecy, which guides her, and a chosen few, on a dangerous quest. This dangerous trek will reveal secrets, (which must be offered), trust in others, (which will be tested), and magic, (to be overcome). It becomes a race they are all on to save this newly transformed world, from being turned into a hell on earth.
Again thank you both--Susan Illene, and Marguerite Gavin. I can't wait for the next novel.
A classic quest
Damn, this book has left me restless.
Forged by Flames is a classic quest which was a nice transition book after the previous story arc ended.
Bailey, Aidan, Conrad, Miles, Danae, and Aidan's uncle and sister are travelling together to different parts of the US to reassemble a magical orb which can control dragon shifters, dragon slayers, and magic users. They have to go through a few trials, and in the process learn important things about their history and mutual origins.
You see, this part was really fascinating to me, and I wanted to know more.
I also loved Aidan's change of heart about his relationship with Bailey and their mutual character growth. Really nicely done!
Conrad was a sweetheart continuously providing comic relief but we also found out an intriguing backstory to Aidan's sister and Miles & Danae.
At the same time, the plot in parts lost focus, and I didn't feel like some storylines were wrapped up successfully. The witch or Aidan's brother, for example.
Saying all that, it was a pleasant, smooth read, and I'm looking forward to this series expanding its world-building in the future. Recommended.
