Book Review: Legend of the Inero Dragon by J.F. Jenkins

Legend of the Inero Dragon (The Dragons Saga #2) by J.F. Jenkins
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: January 16, 2012
Publisher:  Astraea Press

Twin brothers Jason and Matthias Inero are the favorite sons of the great dragon lord of fire. More often than not they get whatever they want. Matt wants to do great things for his people while Jason wants to go off and explore the world. Both can have what they desire, but not until they take a bride and enter into adulthood.

Enter Kat and Gwen, two girls from very different backgrounds. Kat is happy to leave her home when the royal guard comes to bring her to loving arms of her childhood sweetheart, Matt. Gwen on the other hand is livid to be taken from her farm only to be thrust into Jason's life, and he's not to thrilled with the idea either. They have one year to find happiness with each other, or else they will be placed at the mercy of the ruthless dragon lord Lynx. Favorite or not, dragon law must be obeyed.

As their nation begins to prepare for war against a neighboring tribe, the brothers find themselves as key components in the battle plans. A dark prophet has had a vision of Inero victory, but at what cost? Both must decide where their loyalties lie and what they're willing to sacrifice – including each other – to achieve their goals.

Legend of the Inero Dragon by J.F. Jenkins is the second book in the Dragons Saga. With this book we are given the perspectives of Jason and Matt Inero and their chosen wives, Kat and Gwen. Jason and Matt are twins and couldn't be more different. Jason and Kat were best friends long before she was chosen to be one of the elite. Their relationship has the best chance of survival going in, but the more time went on the more it seems they have a lot to work on. I sense some hard times coming. I don't like Matt. At all. He's a jerk. While he is in love with Kat now, I wonder how long that will really last. Something Lynx, Jason and Matt's father, said makes me afraid tragedy is on the horizon for them.

Jason and Gwen didn't know each other prior to Gwen being chosen as an elite. Jason doesn't want to marry someone he doesn't love, but he is forced to choose a wife. It's customary. Gwen would rather pass too. They are both taking things really slow. The Inero Dragons are known for hopping from wife to wife, and Jason doesn't want to do that. He wants it to be about love. Needless to say, he's my favorite, but I'm worried about him quite a bit for reasons I can't say without giving away a major spoiler.

I love how this book gives you the Inero side to the events that took place in book one. I have to say, the Ineros are pretty unpleasant as a whole. Something is building. A battle maybe? There is an aspect of good vs evil beginning to appear that I didn't expect. This is turning into a pretty unique series. I'm curious to see what happens next.
