Review: The Dragon’s Brood Cycle

Haven Lost

The Dragon’s Brood Cycle Book 1

by Josh de Lioncourt

Legends never die …Sixteen-year-old Emily Haven, heroine of the girls’ hockey team at Lindsey High, has spent her young life keeping two secrets: her rapidly deteriorating home life and the seemingly supernatural power that makes her a star on the ice. When she begins seeing visions of a ragged boy reflected in mirrors and shop windows, a series of events unfolds that tears her from twenty-first century Minneapolis and leaves her stranded in another world with horrors to rival those she has left behind. Lost amidst creatures of fantasy and legend, she is forced to confront the demons of both her past and future to unravel the riddle of the mysterious boy and embark upon a journey to uncover long forgotten histories and the dark, cloaked figure in the shadows behind them all. Caught between opposing forces of a war she does not understand, Emily must find new strength within herself and, above all, the will to remember her friends.

REVIEW

5 out of 5

Haven Lost is absolutely brilliant. Emily is a strong (but fairly typical), teenager (minus her special ability). That doesn’t stop her from taking on each new challenge head on, and you can’t help but sit on the edge of your seat waiting to see where her adventures will take her next. The cast of characters is rich, and the twists will keep you guessing. Cannot recommend enough.

A Dragon’s Brood Cycle Tale 

by Josh de Lioncourt

Life is hard for Daniel and the other kids who struggle to live on the streets of Ravenhold, a seaside city allied with the sorceress Marianne and the kingdom of Seven Skies. There is seldom enough to eat, and the nights are cold, but Daniel finds warmth and friendship when he meets the enigmatic Harmony. Their special bond, coupled with the mystery of Harmony’s past, sends Daniel from his life on the streets to the wider world beyond in this short story prequel to Haven Lost and the Dragon’s Brood Cycle.

Harmony’s Song is a great way to start the series. Although you don’t need to read it before book one, it’s not a bad way to start. I love how it feels like you’re not just reading a book but stepping through a portal into Daniel’s world. Even if you don’t plan on reading the series and are looking for a quick epic read, you’ll want to grab this.

Treasures and Trinkets

A Dragon’s Brood Cycle Tale

by Josh de Lioncourt

Before she was a prisoner in Marianne’s crystal mines or just another face among the multitudes in the city of Seven Skies, Maddy had a different name and everything she could want—governesses, gowns, and gold to fill her pockets. And though she wasn’t the son her father had wanted, it was inevitable that one day she would inherit his title.

But Maddy’s predictable world is turned upside down when an extraordinary servant girl challenges everything she’s ever known; there’s a wider world beyond the comfortable confines of her castle, full of wonder and magic, and Maddy finds that the one thing she doesn’t have is the only thing she really needs.

Treasures and Trinkets is a great addition to the Dragon’s Brood series. I have to admit I always love seeing one of my favorite side characters get their own story (even a short story). I’m glad this was just as well written as the main stories (nothing worse than a side story that’s a disappointment in my opinion). Although you don’t have to read the other stories, after reading this you’ll want to!
