  • The Barren

    I couldn't wait for this book to come out after reading book one. It was all I hoped and more! Thank you, Jessie Donovan, for this wonderful story of love for those who didn't think they could ever have it. I admit I wasn't so sympathetic to Thorin until I read his story. Can't tell you why you'll have to find out for yourself. Vala is a Barren. Literally a labeled class of women who could not bear children, an imperative in their society. They were marked-yes-an actual tattoo on their forehead that identified them to all. No man would ever marry one of them. Vala had an invitation to a new society on a world who could give her chances she'd never have in her own world. Thorin is the General in charge of the transport ship Vala is traveling to her new life. She is assigned to tend to his needs. Although some Barren did more than clean the room, Vala did not. The happening that brought the two together was pure genius. The author made the situation so strong. The choices were no choices at all. It forced them together. Enough said. Learning about the man, having sexual feelings is new to Vala. Can she succumb? When trouble shows can he protect this woman who draws him? The danger is worse because he doesn't know the source. The story line is compelling. The characters captivating. The steam all consuming. The secrets critical. Plan to sit back and enjoy reading--cover to cover. Putting it down is going to be as hard as solving their problems. While addicted to the author's dragons, this series has my heart as well. I want these people living such constricted lives to find freedom and love. My message to Ms. Donovan, More, please. I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very Enjoyable

    I truly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the Princess & Raven book to come out. I realize there will probably be a few in this series & they haven’t been written yet, but there are hints galore. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I do.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Pleasant surprise

    Surprisingly I enjoyed this book. Not what I expected. Nice plot twist. This book involves general thorin and vala a (barren female). It also givesa nice introduction to the characters in the next book involving the eldest prince.

    Thanks for your feedback!
