Review of A Dragon Forsaken

A Dragon Forsaken
Krystal McLaughlin
Kindle Edition

   This is the second book in the Enchanted Island Series. In this episode, we encounter Daphne. She is quite unique in this fantasy world of mystery and magic. Daphne was born a dragon, unlike her friends  who have become awakened to the magic inside themselves. In this installment, Daphne's past resurfaces to haunt her which forces her to form alliances and end up risking everything for love. This is the one thing she swore she would never do.
   This episode starts off with Daphne searching for her sister who has been lost for some time. Along the way, she encounters some sinister goings on that threaten her very existence and the lives of those around her. Will she be able to remain strong in her convictions and save the person she has grown to love?
   This story started off just a little slow and I was uncertain about it. After a few chapters, it took off and kept moving until the end. The ending was most definitely a surprise and I just did not see it coming. Daphne is a bit of a hard character and it was rather difficult getting into her. She was kind of a hard case. As the story progresses, her character grows in intensity and compassion. She becomes quite the likable young woman. The storyline is well written and even with the slow start was very enjoyable. If you are into fantasy reads, I highly recommend it. It contains love, hatred, betrayal, and murder.
   Keep your eyes open for the third book in the Enchanted Island Series coming in the fall 2011, The Goblins Daughter.
   I wish to thank the author for providing me with a copy to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own. I was not compensated in any way except for receiving the book to read and review.

I give A Dragon Forsaken 4 out of 5 stars
