Drakkar Dragoni, the only son of Princess Absinthe Dragoni, always believes what his mother tells him.
Humans are nothing more than cattle bred to nourish their kind, and her half brother, Jared Bonatelli, stole a kingdom which is rightfully hers. Drakkar vows to right this wrong, even if it means Jared dies by his hand.
But what if none of it is true?
What if this his mother’s biggest lie yet?
Who can he turn to?
Who will help him escape the prison within his own home?
I felt sorry for Drakkar from the beginning. The thought of the abuse and lack of love in the environment he was raised in. I thoroughly enjoyed Nick and Serenity. Talk about true friendships. And Britt rounded out the foursome. You could tell that deep down Drakkar wasn’t evil like Abs tried to brainwash him to be. Abs is one of those that you love to hate! You knew Serenity and Drakkar would be a couple and watching their relationship bloom was heartwarming. Abs wanted baby Annabell as she would secure her “rightful” position of Queen. Drakkar made his first attempt to snatch Anna and was able to get into Jared’s home even with the spell. It was when he failed but told Abs that he got in with the spell, the truth of his parents was tacticallly released by Abs. And….Giovanna was allowed to discover the truth. Abs used that and his feelings for Serenity to force him to steal baby Annabell and this time Drakkar could not fail. He had too much at risk. Drakkar, Nick, Serenity and Britt all plotted and planned how to pull off baby Anna’s heist. It worked…..but just a bit different than the foursome had planned. In the end, Drakkar was reunited with his father and shown what being loved and cared for was really like. Giovanna was saved and safely hidden because of Drakkar’s request.
Now….Abs was all hacked off and cut off of benefits at The Final Resting Place. Then….here comes a creature from the past, RIM…. And, the hinting of Giovanna’s responsibility in the Jared/Giovanna incident in the very beginning.
I look forward to the next chapter in the storyline.
Sandi Bischoff lives in the historic town of Cornwall, NY with her husband, son and a menagerie of Dragons all of whom have their own distinct personalities. She is a Pharmacist by profession but finally found her true calling in a simple twist of fate. A friend approached her to write for a character in a forum on a popular networking website and over the next five years her passion had found its niche. She then went on to compose a few poems and short stories which she would post on her homepage at the same networking site. Recently one of those poems was chosen to be published in a compilation called Collected Whispers.
Her first manuscript entitled Beyond the Sun was another short story gone wild. It has recently been picked up by Bayou Brew Publishing and was released on April 1st.
