Goodreads Synopsis

Ren and Axel are caught between two powerful magical races: one destined to end the bloodshed, the other out for vengeance.

Seventeen-year-old Ren Pernell is prophesied to end the war between the Dracians and the Telalians. So when a Dracian, Axel Knight, is sent to find and bring back the prophesied one before she turns eighteen and Telalians discover of her existence, unexpected sparks start to fly between the two. Once Ren finds the truth behind Axel’s arrival, she wants everything to do with him and nothing to do with his mission.

Things prove to become difficult as Ren’s life is constantly threatened by the Goarders, humans who sold their souls, a Proxy Succubi, and the leader of the Telalians, who has been searching for her as well.

With the clock ticking and Ren’s life in jeopardy, it is no longer just a mission for Axel. It becomes a personal endeavor to save the only one he’s ever loved. In a heart racing ending, they must find a way to evade the preordained war that won’t also end Ren’s life.

My Review

Dracian Legacy was a riveting story that enraptured me after the very first page.  I was drawn in to the story and felt as if I was there the entire time.  It felt like I was right there with them the entire time.  I was able to feel every emotion that the characters felt.  This story was beautifully written.  Like I said, each page drew me in.  The world-building was well crafted and well thought out.  I was able to picture everything in my mind while I was reading.  What I loved about this book was its uniqueness and originality.  I haven't read another book like it so it got even more bonus points from me.  Dracian Legacy was very action-packed and filled with love, loss, tragedy and self-discovery.  This is a book I will definitely reread.  I absolutely loved it!!!!

Ren has a normal life until everything starts to change.  After meeting Axel leaving the cemetery, they are immediately attacked.  Axel shares some secrets with her, but not all of them.  He starts going to school, because the electricity between them is hot.  Ren becomes Axel's everything.  Her best friend, Dean, also wants to win her heart which is very sweet.  He goes from woman to woman, but Ren is the only one he wants. After Ren faces a demon, she finally learns thee truth.  HUGE secrets are revealed.  She learns that everyone has kept secrets from her.  Ren also learns about her destiny and the prophecy.  After tragedy strikes, Ren picks up and leaves to head to Dracia to face her destiny head on.

I loved the characters in this story.  I loved all the Dracians.  Each of their personalities were so different that I couldn't help but love them all.  Ren was a character I was able to relate to easily.  It was so hard for her after parents death that she pushed everyone away, because she didn't want to lose anymore people she loved.  All that changed when she met Axel/  They have a connection unlike others that makes them feel whole and complete.  After several attacks, she finally learns who she truly is.  Secrets become revealed.  I loved her relationship with her brother Joshua.  They loved each other unconditionally.  Alex was a sweet guy.  He seemed to love Ren more than anything.  I enjoyed watching their relationship grow and develop.    I have to say that my favorite character in this story ids Dean.  He just has the sexiness and attitude that I love.  He seems to really care about Ren as well.  More than any other woman he has preyed upon.  I was wondering what their connection was about, but I learned his secret as well.  What he truly is to Ren.  I know Ren and Axel has the electricity between them, but I am hoping against all hoe, that she sends up with Dean.  They have history together and he really is hurting with the loss of her. 

I am hoping to learn more history of the Dracians and the Telalians in the next book. Something was up with Telal.  He didn't seem evil as all.  He father was horrible though.  Hated him with a passion.  Can't wait to see more about Telal and what really happened him. 

This ending tore me to pieced. I cried my eyes out.  I loved Joshua.  I am hoping somehow that situation gets fixed.  He is one of those characters that I fell in love with.  I was complete shock.  He told Ren to trust him so I have to trust him, as well.  It better get fixed.  Love Muskles!!!

What an ending!!!  The cliffhanger definitely left me wanting more.    I need the sequel to this story NOW!!!!  I am already missing Dean.  Looks like I will be rereading this book again very soon. I wa sso enthralled by this story that I didn't realize how much time passed when I finished it.  Priya did a fantastic job with this story.  I loved everything about it.  I was completely captivated after the very first page.  It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  There are so many twists and turns in this book that every time I thought I had something figured out, it completely changed.  The secrets are huge in this story.  At the end there were more secrets mentioned so I can't wait to see more on those.  This is a must read everyone!!!  I highly recommend it.

I also want to point out that I love the cover of Dracian Legacy.  It is just gorgeous!!!  The colors are simply beautiful.
