A Dragon Forsaken (Enchanted Island 2)

Title: A Dragon Forsaken
Author: Krystal George
Rating: 5/5
Goodreads Summary:
In a world of mystery and magic, Daphne is unique.

Unlike her friends, who have awakened to the magic inside of them, Daphne was born with it. Daphne was born a Dragon.

When her past begins to resurface, forcing her into a web of lies and deception, she is forced to accept unexpected alliances and risk everything for the sake of love. Something that she swore she would never let into her life.

As the newest installment of The Enchanted Island Series unfolds, she'll learn that nothing is ever what it seems, and when webs get this tangled, everyone's fate hangs in the balance, and nothing is coincidence.

My Review:

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review actually as you may know I was given both in a read to review on Goodreads and after reading book one and knowing that this one was told from an alternate point of view form book one, I found that both exciting and a little refreshing. I get all the same characters but told through someone else's perspective that was a big plus for me. I must also mention the beautiful cover it drew me in a was perfect for the book, both books have great covers but for me this one wins!
I found this one a bit more exciting and a bit more drama filled since all the tension from both books comes to a head, as it is all connected and in a large climax many details are exposed and some questions answered as to how they all found each other and managed to end up in this cluster of crazy with all such a different experience. There was also much more heartbreak and betrayal, not only for Daphne but a few others as well.
Daphne starts out a bit to cocky and it gets her into a lot of trouble although as this book proves all of our choices lead us somewhere and even though she must face many struggles they all lead her to make choices that will help her and a few others around her.
   "I was too cocky for my own good. I knew what I was capable of, but I let that make     me forget that other people were capable of much worse than I was."
I think that was a huge turning point for her and I liked her character as I read more. She was strong and she was also weak in her love for others whether she wanted to admit it or not, but they were strong in their love for each other, cheesy for some maybe, but I liked it.
Teagan had a lot to prove after book one I know he helped but it was hard for me to trust him and I want you to find out for yourself, but I will tell you he had some adorable moments in my opinion and it was nice to have him around in book two if only for the mystery of it all.
Okay and now the one very small thing in both books that I did not like, they called each other babe and baby a few times and as I have said I like a bit if cheesy or romance if you will but to me it always feels a bit awkward in a book but it was a small thing easy to over look.
Overall good book, good series and I will for sure continue on. I can't wait to read book 3. The Goblin's Daughter told from Gianna's point of view. can't wait to see were her story leads and if she will find Drew.
