Dragon Spawn Chronicles
Enchanted as a child, Rhiannon grows up hidden, safe from a destiny that could be disastrous to her world. But when an evil sorcerer, seeking to destroy the Power of Two, opens the veiled gate that holds the dragons underground, Rhiannon must emerge. She must find the warrior marked with the dragon’s flame, for only he can defeat the evil devouring the land.
Laird Dylan is a shadow in his own keep. Branded at birth with a dragon's head mark, he is shackled to a cursed life. Now dragons lay waste to his land. But his duty to stop them is derailed when he meets a woman who is unafraid of his shadowed past—a woman he could love.
In the midst of evil, Dylan and Rhiannon find a love more powerful than dragons and sorcerers. But will it be lost to save the world they know?

My Thoughts

A quest to her world ends in finding the love of a lifetime, but will their love be lost in their quest to save the world?

Rhiannon and Dylan are both thrust into a world of magic, evil, and love. Rhiannon has lived a sheltered life being kept from a disastrous destiny. Dylan has been an outcast since he was branded with a dragons head mark at birth and has been shackled to a cursed life. An evil sorcerer has unleashed the dragons from the underground and it is up to Rhiannon to find the one with the dragons mark. She is afraid of this destiny, but finds the courage to find Dylan and fulfill her destiny to save the world from its disastrous fate. Unfortunately the evil sorcerer will stop at nothing to get her first.

Rhiannon is a very strong character with a lot of depth she is a brave heroine and even when she is afraid she still does her best to fight for the safety of her world no matter how dangerous it may be to do so. Her courage and kindness makes her a perfect match for the scarred and emotionally hardened Dylan. He has always been feared by others because of his past, but he is a very honorable man and Rhiannon sees this. I loved the romance between these two characters. The story drew me in from the beginning and was filled action, romance, and mysterious mythical creatures.

I highly recommend this to lovers of fantasy novels!
