This Chick Read: Mist’s Edge (The Broken Lands #2) by T. A. White

Mist’s Edge continues the story of Shea, a Pathfinder, who falls in love with a Trateri Warlord and has to reinvent herself. Her identity has always been tied to what she could do as a Pathfinder, but now as Telroi, she struggles with what that that title makes her instead of what she can accomplish. I first read and reviewed Pathfinder back in 2016 and loved how this woman was kick ass, not for some special super power, but because she was gifted at what she’d learned how to do. In Mist’s Edge, I am still enamored with the Shea who was accomplished, but now I have fallen in love with the Shea who is going through self discovery, trying to find her place among the Trateri and in her relationship with Fallon, her Warlord.

The relationship between Fallon and Shea is heated and passionate. They feel so much for each other, but Shea is still dissatisfied with her new place as Telroi. The beginning of this novel has Shea doing a lot of soul searching, so it starts off kind of slow, however, when a fellow Pathfinder finds their way into camp, the threat of Shea leaving makes the plot really move. Fallon feels threatened  because he knows she hasn’t yet settled into her role. A role which is kind of confusing, not just to Shea but also the reader. Telroi seems to be somewhere between a wife and a mistress, but women don’t seem to have leadership roles within Trateri society, so other than being attached to the Warlord, she doesn’t have much to do. It would be hard to go from a leadership role to the plus one, even if you are with the man you love.

After Reece, the other Pathfinder, shows up the plot moves along, the conflict heating up and giving both Shea and Fallon purpose together. I like it best when they are working together towards a resolution, so the second half of the book was great and the conclusion was very satisfying. Book three will hopefully not be two years out because I’m looking forward to seeing them face their final task together, each of them getting what they need. Fallon, world domination (seriously, he’s a conqueror) and Shea a place in his world that satisfies her need for respect and love. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

This Chick Read: Of Bone and Ruin (Dragon Ridden Chronicles #2) by T. A. White

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… ❤️❤️❤️❤️❣️

This Chick Read: Dragon-Ridden by T. A. White

Tate does not have any memories before she was found by some pirates alone on an island. She’s acclimated to life on board the ship, made a few friends, and had become a pretty good thief, but there are some that want her gone. She has been attacked more than a few times, and when they get to their next port, she makes plans to abandon ship and stay on land.

This Chick Read: Pathfinder’s Way by T. A. White

This is a wonderful fantasy adventure novel that introduces us to a new type of adventurer, the Pathfinder. Shea belongs to the Pathfinder’s Guild, a job that she was raised to do from the age of 10. She has more experience traveling than others in her world, who may be at a more advanced age. She creates maps of her journeys, and her experiences with dangerous beasts and creatures, makes her guidance invaluable.  Unfortunately, she is a woman, and in her village, where she has been placed, the elders think they know better than she.
