Rating: 4.5 Stars
Lord Elliott Mayfield aims to correct the very messy marital mistakes and spousal scandals of his brothers and sisters by requiring his nieces and nephews to choose worthy companions. If they choose wisely, they will receive their generous share of the family’s inheritance.
Peter, Elliott’s eldest nephew, thinks the entire idea is ridiculous. A widower with two young daughters, he simply needs a governess, not a wife. Julia Hollingsworth certainly has the credentials and the experience, but is altogether too young and pretty for such a job. So why can’t he stop thinking about her?
Julia loves working as a governess, despite the objections of her mother, Amelia. And as it turns out, Amelia has a lot to say about the Mayfield men—none of it good. But Julia dismisses the rumors of ruined reputations and instead concentrates on helping Peter with his children and his fledgling business in canine husbandry. His kindness and gentleness is endearing—and increasingly attractive.
But Amelia, whose heart was broken thirty years ago by none other than Elliott Mayfield, is determined to prevent any relationship from blooming either between Peter and Julia—or between herself and Elliott.
Hearts and history collide as both couples must face their pasts and decide if risking it all is worth the promise of new love and a new future.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an early copy of Wrath of the Dragon King for an honest review.
Dragonwatch, Wrath of the Dragon King is perfect for fans of the Fablehaven series as you get to continue with a new adventure and for those new to the series this is the perfect time to check it out! The second book is even better than the first and Mull does such a great job of cluing the reader into things that have happened in the Fablehaven series. It is fast-paced and perfect for fantasy lovers of any age!
Wrath of the Dragon King begins right where Dragonwatch left off. We get more character development and growth with Seth and Kendra. The new characters are also a great addition.
Wrath of the Dragon King is full of fantastic magical creatures. It is a great adventure for young and old that has high stakes, magic and action! The cliffhanger will definitely leave you wanting more. I would definitely recommend and I am giving it 4.5 out 5 stars.
