I was caught at a glance…The Prophecy, book I of A Dragon’s Tale trilogy, by Mark Boyd.
Book II is out and Book III is in progress.
Cover Designs by Laura Allen Bold
A fresh, original, and fabulous story about one of my favorite supernatural creatures, The Dragon.
Go out for a fish dinner – dragonstyle.
How many fish does it take to fill a dragon?
Always time for a little humor.
We begin with action and I am hooked. The couples story captured my full attention as they struggled to understand the prophecy.
Prince Leandro…she saved him, and he is the only human who had developed such feelings of love for Faeries.
They met and fell in love, but don’t get too comfortable.
Mark Boyd a shapeshifting dragon love story to a new level and to write this as a man surprised me most of all. He creates an antagonist who is so filled with greed and the need for power that he will stoop to the lowest levels of humanity to get what he wants. He does add a layer to the story that I didn’t see coming and it smacks of magical science fiction.
The character development and world building took me deep into the fantasy. Once I almost felt like I was flying with the majestic dragons, banking, diving, shooting up the face of the mountain for play and training. Think Avatar.
Vampires, trolls, werehounds, sirens, shapeshifting dragon, healer. An awesome collection of supernaturals. Magic visions, graphic and gruesome deaths.
Bliss and sorrow. Good and evil.
Even though it starts out with a storyline that is predictable, Mark Boyd adds plenty of fresh, original twists that kept me enthralled as I wondered what will come next. Give me more, please.
I voluntarily reviewed a free Arc of The Prophecy by Mark Boyd.
The prophecy, a foretelling of a great king born of dragon-human-elven blood that unites all of the races in a millennium of peace is an ancient story told to all dragon hatchlings from the Dragon Book of Lore. A foretelling born of old majic, through the centuries, became just another story to give the young hope. The old believed…the young cannot perceive how it could ever manifest; who would ever want to be other than pure blood dragon? The prophecy existed in story only, until Anaterri Strayarth, a blue dragon living in human form and the daughter of Stragor Strayarth – Head of the High Council of Dragons, saves the life of Prince Leandro Sargovia with a transfusion of her dragon blood. The unification of human-dragon blood sets in motion the beginning of the once dormant tale and a love that transcends time. Grand Magi Aloysius Alamaris, a black dragon hiding in human form, learns of the initiation of the prophecy and plots the ultimate destruction of all who seek to bring the prophecy to fruition. Anaterri and Leandro are now pitted against the ultimate evil, fighting not only for their own lives but also the lives of their children…and they must insure the prophecy is allowed to manifest…at all cost.
