Release Day 4 STAR Review! Highland Dragon Rebel (Dawn of the Highland Dragon #2) Isabel Cooper
Highland Dragon Rebel (Dawn of the Highland Dragon) - Isabel Cooper

 

 

Madoc of Avandos is on a journey to cement alliances. Targeted by an assassin, he needs a companion who can fight. When dragon shifter Moiread MacAlasdair returns from war, he knows she's the best woman for the job. Duty and political strength compel Moiread to agree, but when they cross into the otherworld and Madoc's life is threatened, Moiread jumps into protection mode-and will do whatever it takes to keep the man of her dreams alive.

 

 

Moiread and Madoc are brought to brilliant life as readers join them on their quest to protect the future of Wales. Along the way the couple enjoy a light hearted romance that they both seem to believe can’t really go any further due to some pretty interesting concerns which keeps readers wondering until the very end.

 

Their romance as well as their quest is fraught with danger and suspense as assassins seem to pop up everywhere with the determination to keep them from accomplishing their goal. The thrilling uncertainty certainly keeps readers on the edge of their seat as magic and dragons add wonder and excitement for readers and characters alike.

 

The story is set in long ago Scotland, England and Wales as well as another magical realm which adds spice and beauty to the journey for the readers and the pace is a nice even one that keeps readers glued to the pages. I have to say that keeping the romance on such an intriguing last minute timeline kept the “happily ever after” in question throughout and then there was a spectacular final battle between Madoc, Moiread and the assassin to liven things up while adding an inspired and surprising twist that I didn’t see coming.

 

I haven’t read the first book in the Dawn of the Highland Dragon series yet, but I am definitely going to be remedying that before the release of Highland Dragon Master in March and not just because I love dragon shifters. Isabel Cooper used well written descriptions to paint vibrant settings and brilliant characters that I just fell in love with so I can’t wait to visit the Highland Dragons once again.

 

 

 

Highland Dragon Rebel is the 2nd book in the Dawn of the Highland Dragon series.

 

Highland Dragon Master will be released on March 6, 2018.

 

Highland Dragon Rebel is available in print & ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   BAM – Print   ebook   GPlay   Kobo   Sourcebooks

Once I could keep most of the characters straight on who is who, I found myself enjoying this, and what amazing characters they are.  Amani is with-a-doubt one of my favorite YA heroines of all time.   She isn't whiny, she uses her head and she's kind of bad-ass too.  I did really miss Jin, we didn't get nearly enough of him.  I really wish we could get inside his head, just once, at least.  Also, the narration is excellently done by Soneela Nankani.  

 

Will I continue this series⇜  Yes, I will…I need to not wait so long, though, because I was lost for a bit on this one.  There's a lot of names to keep straight.  Even with the first chapter re-capping what happened in the book one. Hero at the Fall is due out in March of 2018.

I Can not tell a Lie, this book was really Rocking!!!!!!
Rebel of the Sands - Alwyn Hamilton

I so very much enjoyed this book a whole freaking much!!!!! I really thought Jin and Amani worked great together, and I thought they were so freaking cute together. I had so much fun going along with them on their journey so far. I loved there time with just one another, as well as when they were with some other characters. I was pretty sad when someone dies, even though us readers so expect that to happen, during a war. I also liked what we found out about Amani, which of course I am not going to spoil. 

I really want to know what happened to Amani's friend Tamid, since it wasn't ever revealed in this book, maybe my question will be answered in the second book, when I have a chance to work that into my reading schedule. So I will most definitely be reading book 2 as well as book 3.

Reading progress update: I've read 40%.
Rebel of the Sands - Alwyn Hamilton

Really great and enjoyable plus exciting book so far. I love both Jin and Amani so far a lot, there both very interesting characters ,and they so far seem to have a lot of strength. Amani so far seems much more serious than Jin, to me Jin tries to lighten things up. So far I know a lot more of Amani's past than I do of Jin's. 

I feel like I am going to enjoy these two together a lot, I am already enjoying their relationship. I can't wait to continue on in this book to see how there journey ends in this first book.
