Book Review: Legend of the Touched by J.F. Jenkins

Legend of the Touched (The Dragons Saga #3) by J.F. Jenkins
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: May 28, 2012
Publisher:  Astraea Press

Darien and Tai Oceina have not been married for long, but already they have one of the most complicated relationships and it hasn't even been a year yet. He is the leader of a nation and a dragon. She is carrying their first child who is supposed to be “the answer”. As Darien dives further into the politics of his people, a wedge is driven deeper between him and his wife.

Twin brothers Jason and Matthias Inero were always inseparable. For the first time in their lives they are apart from each other. Matt continues to do the will of their father, the corrupted Dragon Lord of the Inero, while Jason has fled with his bride to an island where he can forget about everything. Or try to. Being possessed by a demon makes that hard to achieve, and as the creature fights to control his body, Jason discovers a lot of shocking truths about his lineage and destiny.

The two worlds of fire and water collide as both dragon tribes prepare for war with the other. Matthias is determined to crush Darien's people. Only an ancient spell will give Darien enough power to fight back and have any hope at winning. The spell is complicated however and requires all four dragon tribes to work together in harmony. Something that is a lot easier said than done.

Legend of the Touched is the third book in the Dragons Saga by J.F. Jenkins. This book took off right where the previous two ended. All the perspectives that were divided in the first two books are included within this book, so we see the point of view from six different characters. I'm not normally a big fan of so many point of views within one book, but since we were really able to get to know Tai and Darien in book one as well as Jason, Gwen, Matt, and Kat in book two, it was easy to distinguish between each point of view change and actually enhanced the story, helping it progress smoothly. This is a series you need to read from the beginning.

At this point, I can't comment too much without letting a spoiler or two loose. There is definitely a good vs evil battle going on here, and those on the bad side don't necessarily even know they are on the side of evil. I made predictions while reading the first two books as to what I thought would happen, and I'm happy to say they weren't all right. I loved that. The resolution happened a little quickly, but with that being said, this book thoroughly wrapped up this part of the story line. I'm glad the series isn't over though. I'm enthralled by this world. I look forward to more Dragon Saga adventures!
