I had despaired after reading Dragon Ridden last year and discovering that it was published in 2012 that a second book would ever get written. I mean, it does happen, right? Luckily, T. A. White didn’t leave me waiting long! Unfortunately for those of you that read the first novel 5 years ago, you’ll probably have to re-read it just to remember the subtleties of the plot. Not me! I remembered Tate, her Dragon tattoo that moved crazily around her body, and the adventures or scrapes she got herself into in Dragon Ridden, just as if I had read it yesterday. Of Bone and Ruin picks up right where the first novel lets off and I was quickly hooked again on Tate and her status now as Dragon Ridden.
This is a fun fantasy series in the same vein as a Robert Jordan or Piers Anthony. Kind of old fashioned with great friendships, action, and a lot of heart. Tate is your average heroine. She is special because she is Dragon Ridden, or has merged with a Dragon and can shift into its shape. But she’s also special because she doesn’t have a memory of it. A woman merging with a dragon is extremely rare and that makes Tate a mystery that everyone wants to solve. As the story unfolds in Of Bone and Ruin, some of Tate’s mysterious background is revealed, memories surface and Tate becomes even more interesting to the reader. Her relationship to Rhys (also Dragon Ridden) or at least his feelings for her become a little more substantial, but this is in no way a romance novel. Although it is nice to see the growth of their characters and the evolution of all of the relationships is very natural.
I have really enjoyed the first two novels in this series, but if I have to wait another 5 years? Well, hopefully I won’t have to… ❤️❤️❤️❤️❣️
