    One thought on “The Dragon Wakes”

    1. The Dragon Wakes is the story of Reva, Luca, Stefan, and Davead. Reva & Luca, betrothed at a young age & separated just as quickly, are living much different lives than they imagined for themselves at age 13. Stefan, misguided & cruel, will do whatever necessary to overcome his horrible reputation & secure his spot as next in line for the throne. King Davead lives in fear of a prophecy that promises his life will be taken by a Menti, sorcerers possessing powers all along the spec [...]

    2. I was looking for a book with dragons in it and I kind of found it in this one.It's mainly about Prince Luca and Reva, as children they were in love and pretty much inseparable. They had always thought that they would end up married to each other, they even had Luca's father, King Davead's, blessing. Then the King makes a cruel decision and the two are separated. After that you will still follow both of them, you'll see them go through many ordeals, you'll see them falter, fall and get up while [...]

    3. Sarah Dalton has written the first book to what has the potential to turn into one hell of an epic fantasy series. This book was such a great and gripping tale that at times i had to remind myself to breath, there is the usual court intrigue and jealousy among siblings and greed for power however there is also the Menti magic which the king and his son Stefan were doing their best to wipe out! There are the enlightened nuns and governors who also use their own methods to curb the sorcerers, the [...]

    4. Good Beginning of a Tale of Swords and Sorcery Dalton has created an interesting world, with people who can manipulate fire, water and wind. Others can shift into various animal forms. But all are hunted by a king who fears these powers. Simple iron chains or manacles can chain the powers of these outlaws, known as Mentis.This story is a good mix of dialog and action as the Mentis try to escape death or slavery at the hands of the King's forces or misguided murderous "religious " forces.

    5. Grabbed me from the start, and kept me intrigued almost to the very end. There were a lot of "Gasp! No! I can't believe that just happened!" moments while reading it, which was awesome. The plot advanced quickly.Complaints? I was disappointed with the amount of language I encountered toward the middle of the book. Several usages of the "s" word. Also, the last chapter could have been shorter, because it was already clear what was going to happen, and so it seemed tedious.

    6. The writing was a little choppy instead of flowing perfectly, but it was still ok. I feel like this book was just setting a lot of things up. It was kinda depressing to read because of everyone's bad situations, but there was a lot of character growth and I could see that everyone was starting to improve their bad situations. Sadly there was very little romance in the story.

    7. ­čś╗Thank goodness for KU. This book was so good I don't want to wait to be able to read more. I needed a good fAntasy and this did the trick.

    8. Truly more than I expected!A real page-turner, I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. I will recommend this book to my friends and loved ones!

    9. Really goid i love itI like how all the stories fulfill one by one been tide together at the sane time very impresive and good action!!

    10. This is a different kind of read, which is a good thing in this case. A good story and well developed characters, will keep you reading. Good reading everyone!!!!!!!!!!

    11. Dragon wakesExcellent book enjoyed very muchA twist in the tale which was a surpriseHoow you enjoy as much as I did

    12. I grew up on fantasy. For the first 20 years of my reading life, it was what I gravitated to, and what I thrived on. Now, many years later and having branched out to other genres, I find I'm less patient with the genres tropes, but regardless of my bias, I enjoyed this book.We follow 4 separate perspectives, telling three different stories. While they all start at the same place, one of them never connects back with the others. Not in this book. The characters are sympathetic and well drawn, but [...]

    13. A brilliant beginning to another fantasy series, this time the focus is upon the Menti, their powers and struggles, and those who wish them dead.The rulers despise the Menti, religious fanatics, too. Yet hypocrisy is rife and the 'adventure' begins.Fabulous characters and development, a great plot and storytelling make this a compelling read - I was hooked from beginning to end.Looking forward to more.

    14. The Dragon WakesWell done, an author I've never tried before. I enjoyed her writing very much , kept entertained throughout the book. Highly recommended by me.
