(Dragonath Chronicles #1.) By: Andi O’Connor. Format: Paperback. Read: January 2014.
Darrak Hunter is just your typical college student that strives for perfection in every aspect of his life, except for taking the time to clean his room. However life as he knows it, changes suddenly when he starts having dreams of a town with a purple sun. As the characters from his dreams become reality, he is whisked away to the planet of Dragonath, where he learns he is the true heir to the world. Darrak and his new friends must risk their lives in order to save their planets.
The Lost Heir provides a thrilling and intriguing start to the Dragonath Chronicles. Readers will be quickly swept up in the race to save Earth and Dragonath. The author describes the planet and sky in vivid detail. The characters each face their own challenges, while growing individually and as a group. The pace of the plot is slow at times, due to the explanations which set-up the premise for the whole series, while the characters appear to accept their circumstances a bit too quickly sometimes. Overall this novel is a must read for fans of the fantasy/sci-fi genre.
This book is an easy, fun read. The flow leans towards a young adult book, but it is definitely enjoyable by readers of all ages. I am very excited and anxious to see what happens next with Darrak and his entourage.
