Book will not disappoint! Great read. Strong characters, adventure, and love! I will continue to read this author!
What stands out for me about this story is the strong female lead and her determination to make the best of her lot. She’s in an unusual situation but as evidenced by her hardships thus far in life she knows how to adapt and make things better when and how she can.
Tracy Cooper-Posey’s writing is rich in interesting and relevant historical details with an amazing slice-of-life approach which means we feel a part of the story.
One of my favourite aspects of this novel is the changing interactions and developing relationship between the main characters. I enjoyed tagging along for their journey of self discovery and growing fondness for each other. Seemingly thrown together by chance I loved that the two leads both change and learn from each other.
I enjoyed learning more about previous characters in the series too and where their lives had led them with the passage of time.
A very satisfying place to leave these lovers but with so much more to look forward to in the overall story I’m eagerly anticipating the next book(s) in the series.
You will not regret reading this book. Once I got started, I couldn't put it down. I love the characters and the twists and turns in the story are great. I love that the women aren’t helpless, but are valued for their contributions during difficult years. The love story between a king and a woodcutter’s daughter is believable. I thought the characters were well developed and the story-line kept me interested!
I always get excited when Tracy releases a new book! She is one of my favourite of my favourite all time authors. I loved the storyline and all the twists and turns. Couldn’t put it down. It was captivating and mesmerizing. You simply have to read this book. You will not be disappointed.
I am a paranormal lover so I was hesitant about this story from the beginning. I liked the historical details and a lot of research must have gone into this book. But I must confess I was a little disappointed in the characters and the love story. For me they just didn't come to life and as a consequence this story didn't grab me as other novels by this author did. I would have liked a bit more focus on the characters. This book felt to me more like a history book than a (romantic) novel.
Having loved Arthur & the round table for as long as I can remember really swung this book for me, so I'm looking forward to the whole series.
King Arawn was a wee bit of a sad man even in them days believing in curses but he did. A lady was the only one who break it, who other Ilsa was out hunting for her family, to feed them in the hard times & guess who she came over.?
Wow this was some story, I just loved it & how everything came about, both the king & Ilsa went through a lot of trials & tribulations throughout their time together, but they came to understand each other.
Other kings from other kingdoms mainly saxon/Viking & roman seemed to treat their wives more like trophies, Awran seemed to be getting real feelings for Ilsa & she for him as their time was getting longer & they seemed to understand each other.
The giving of the new ring really brought it home to me how Arawn loved Ilsa, a ring within a ring was a lovely touch.
Loved this book it was a great read, all the historical work that must've gone into it, would've ben a lot of hard work. (I loved this kind of history!) Thank you.
I first fell in love with the Arthurian cycle with Marion Zimmer Bradley when I was but a kid. Now, years later, I can appreciate the fine narrative that Tracy Cooper-Posey delivers. Bear in mind this is not the typical historical romance, it's even better. It's a slow burning story which started more than a decade ago in Born of No Man- such an interesting way to introduce Merlin, by the way. Dagon Kin is the story of the cursed King Arawn of Brocéliande and her Queen Ilse. Ilse is supposed to help Arawn broke his curse bearing his first child. At the end, this is a story of loyalty, personal growth and slow path to love. What I LOVE the most is the strong female characters and how they evolve through the book, along with the others. So, if you like the Arthurian myths and British medieval history don’t hesitate to pick up the series, we are bound to a long ride!
Loved it, left me hanging for more
Excellent book. There is so much depth to the characters, and the historical aspects are amazing. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys historical novels. The book is complete within itself. But I can't wait to read more.
Tracy has not disappointed anyone who has or will read her new Historical Romance. The 2nd book takes more the time where magic and soothsaying was believed. We also learn that Merlin gift was becoming strong. If you enjoy reading about the medieval era.....about Sorcerers and magic that has found a way into those times; Tracy's new series Once and Future Hearts will be a series you will not want to miss.
The second book of this series Dragon Kin kept me so enthralled,I was sorry to see the end of the book. I cannot wait for the Third book and knowing Tracy's way of weaving a great story; I know it will not be boring.
