Synopsis: Nicias has never felt completely at home among the avians and serpiente in Wyvern’s Court, despite his loyalty to Oliza Shardae Cobriana, the heir to both thrones. He is a falcon, the son of two exiles from Anhmik–and images of this distant island have always haunted his dreams. But when Nicias’s visions become more like reality, his parents have no choice but to send him back to the homeland–and a royal falcon–they’ve tried their best to forget.
If Araceli won’t bind Nicias’s newfound magic, it could destroy him. In a place where everyone is a pawn, only one other woman has the potential to save Nicias. But she holds the keys to a dangerous power struggle that will force Nicias to choose between his duty–and his destiny.
Sequel to: Snakecharm
I found the third book in the Kiesha’ra series really hard to get into. I was about halfway through before I found myself to be really engaged.
I was excited to read from Nicias’ point of view, now that we are in Wyvern’s court. I liked it very much, though it was a little sad how we’re no longer on Danica and Zane. Nevertheless, I liked it.
One thing I did notice about not just this book, but all of Amelia Atwater-Rhodes’ books, was that you get a lot more the second time you read it. The first time is kind of confusing, when you’re trying to remember all the details and follow the story line. I found that when I reread her books in a few months, you get a lot more and it makes more sense.
Sorry for the short review – I guess I didn’t have as much to say on this as I thought. What were your opinions on Falcondance?
