Hello friends! Today I have my book review of
Taken is the third book in the The Brindle Dragon series.
Trigger Warnings: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Kidnapping, Poisoning, Abuse.
Eist has survived treachery and has dedicated herself to raising the most unique dragon anyone has ever seen. While Fior has proven to be intelligent, loyal, and cunning, he still lags behind his now much larger brethren. As Eist faces the possibility she may never be able to soar on her dragon, a worse possibility is thrust on her. Can she overcome the latest threat or will everything be taken from her?
Taken is the third book in the Brindle Dragon series which follows the story of a young girl and her most unusual dragon as they set out to defeat an evil they are just starting to understand.
With Taken being the third book in The Brindle Dragon, Taken is an incredibly fast read. I’m talking even faster than the last book, Awakened. It seems like there are two parts of this story, and for good reason.
In the first half, the plot is building and I could tell that there was going to be something that would explode, peak plot. And then after that; while the storyline is still interesting there seems to be a lack of progress, even though there was just a huge lap in time.
The second part of the story seemed to be….lacking. There was so much buildup in the first half of the story, that by the time the second half of the story comes around… I felt like the story was…falling. Literally. The come down in the latter half of Taken was immense.
We get some insights on a few of the characters, we get to know more about the story background which was great to learn.
While we do get to know more about the story, much of the information that we need is left out. Effectively making me read more of the series.
However, there’s progress within Eist’s character. She’s paying more attention in class, and improving more overall as a student. I had hoped that this would happen, and I’m so glad that it did. Eist, being hard of hearing, is once again being top of her class.
I love the progress with Fior, and how far he’s come.
I give Taken, 3 stars.
