Michael's Mystery, The Nations of Peace by Linzé Brandon was provided for an honest review by Book R3vi3w Tours. I've only had a few books that didn't interest me. Three tops the list, but this one makes 4.
The very beginning of the book has me in a foreign land where there are dragons and riders. Their relationship is near symbiotic but more like lovers. They're playing a game, similar to hide and seek I guess, but it's interrupted by two men on an intergalactic mission. Then the story takes me to a totally different place. I was like, "Wha? Where am I?"
I'm then introduced to a healer and a Guardian, Michael. The story from there was semi-interesting, but I just couldn't get into it. There is so much missing from the story, I couldn't quite tell what it was about. There are High Lords who are doing their best to protect a planet called Kryane from a villain by the name of Grandmaster. Honestly, I
wasn't sure what he'd done that was so bad. Yeah, he'd killed a few people, but I didn't get why. All I knew was that he was a bad guy, causing a huge rebellion against High Lords who weren't even on the same planet or in the same dimension! I can say, the relationship between Andesine and Michael developed nicely. I loved it! They were playful and bashful about their feelings and that was real to me.
There's another piece I truly enjoyed about this book. Dragons. I've loved dragons since I can remember and they're in this book. Baby dragons and dragon-human hybrids. It's pretty cool and I loved those parts the most, but it just wasn't strong enough for me because it was almost fairy-tale like. As far as the adventure I'd hoped to receive, it was light in coming. It made for an interesting read but that was about it.
I like the cover. It doesn't come off as dystopian or futurist to me, but it's nice. It's more like a romance novel, which is honestly the theme this book leans towards. I'm sure this author's pretty good, just not for me. So I'm off to the next book! 📚
