In a world of mystery and magic, Daphne is unique.

Unlike her friends, who have awakened to the magic inside of them, Daphne was born with it. Daphne was born a Dragon.

When her past begins to resurface, forcing her into a web of lies and deception, she is forced to accept unexpected alliances and risk everything for the sake of love. Something that she swore she would never let into her life.

As the newest installment of The Enchanted Island Series unfolds, she'll learn that nothing is ever what it seems, and when webs get this tangled, everyone's fate hangs in the balance, and nothing is coincidence.

In A Dragon Foresaken, the second instalment in The Enchanted Island series, the story this times follows Daphne on her mission to find adopted sister, Anna.

Daphne is an orphan – hazards of being a dragon. As a child she bounced around foster homes, never settling long enough to make friends or any kind of connection. But then she met the Hensley’s and she thought she’d found a home. Until tragedy tore them apart.

On her travels to find Anna, Daphne makes a few odd alliances. A few beloved characters from the first book of the story crop up, much to my delight. A Dragon Foresaken was more intense than The Witches Lottery. For one thing, there was way more action. Daphne was a kick-ass character with incredible strength and power – very reminiscent of Buffy.

But like Buffy, Daphne has her flaws. Like insisting she can handle everything alone. But like the Scoobies, Daphne’s friends are just as stubborn.

There is great suspense in the book that keeps the reader glued to the page, not wanting to miss a single thing. The twists and turns were well placed – catching the reader unawares just when they thought they had things figured out.

And a tender romance was the perfect breather for all the action. Like the first book, A Dragon Foresaken was enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

The cover for this book is awesome! I also really enjoyed your review. This sounds like a great book. I like the plot from your description!

I found you through Book Blogs and signed up to follow you. When you have a chance- please stop by and follow the blog for my middle grade novel that I am hoping to get published.

Take care-
Jess- although I may show up as Fairday, the main character from my novel. I can't figure out why that happens and I can't fix it. :)
