Gendra—partblood daughter of an elite mossback soldier and the only shapeshifter to achieve the coveted dragon form—is anything but interesting. She’s actually plain and awkward and … invisible. Every guy she meets either looks right through her or—worse—thinks of her as just a friend. Fortunately Gen is far too practical to wallow in self pity. Much.
A Search for True Love
But as Gen accompanies her oldest friends on a quest for Her Majesty High Queen Ursula, she can’t help feeling bitter about her lonely fate as, two by two, they pair off with each other. As usual, everyone but odd-woman-out Gen seems to be finding the happiness in true love that has always eluded her. And Gen’s pathetic attempts to come out of her shell have only met with social disaster.
Still, with magic rifts plaguing the Thirteen Kingdoms and a strange intelligence stalking them from an alter-realm, Gen has plenty to deal with—especially when she’s cut off from the group, isolated and facing a lethal danger. It just figures that Gen is on her own, once again. But with no one coming to save her, she has only herself to rely upon.
And, perhaps, the help of a mysterious, stranded magician…
I love the world Kennedy has created here. I’ve loved it since I read the first book set in this world in The Mark of the Tala, which I read back in 2014. She keeps creating new series that are set in this world, and I can’t get enough.
While I love the world created here, it is really the characters Kennedy creates that I like most. I get very invested in each and every one of them. I look forward to that happy ending for the couples in each book. I also love how we see all the characters grow throughout the entire series. Each book is built on the previous book, so you want to read the series in order (though you can read each of the series separately, even though they are all intertwined).
To give a little background on the series, if you’re not familiar. This series follows the new adult children of the characters from The Twelve Kingdoms, The Uncharted Realms and The Chronicles of Dasnaria series (again, you don’t have to have read these series before reading this series). They are sent on a mission by the high queen to figure out riffs/portals between worlds that are happening in her kingdom. So far, we’ve seen them pair up together. Gendra has never had that person that she secretly wanted to get with like all the others. She is a bit of a loner and now is starting to feel like a third wheel. But all that changes in this story.
Again, I want to reiterate my love of these characters. I always look forward to my time with the characters that Kennedy has built here. I would get to them faster if they were on audio, but I still love reading them. I find time to sit down and read these on my Kindle. There’s one more book, The Storm Princess and the Raven King, coming to this series, which comes out right before my vacation 🎉 💃
