The Treasure of Paragon, Book 6
Synopsis: She longs for a better future.
Avery Tanglewood has had enough of rearranging her life for the sake of others. After years of taking a backseat to her family’s needs, she’s ready to strike out on her own. If only she knew what she wanted to do with the rest of her life.
He’s a prisoner of the past.
For hundreds of years, Xavier has used his dragon magic to protect his Highland clan inside a pocket of space called the builgean. Generations have enjoyed years of peace and prosperity cut off from the modern world, thanks to his unique abilities. But when a fairy trickster captures him and claims his throne, his refuge becomes his prison.
Can they free each other from the chains that bind?
Avery agrees to journey into the builgean to persuade Xavier to help with the crisis in Paragon, but she finds a mysterious stranger in his place—a problematic complication, considering she can’t leave the pocket without Xavier’s assistance. Although she finds a way to release the dragon from his imprisonment, he refuses to return to the outside world with her, insisting on winning back his land and his clan first. At first Avery protests, but the longer she spends in Xavier’s magical world, the harder it is to remember the reasons she should return to her own.
Review: I had a great time with the previous volume which became one of my favorites of the series and I was a little afraid to see what the author had in store for us with this slightly different story. Why is that? Because this time Avery has to go to a pocket frozen in time in 1745 to find Xavier and ask him to come back with her to help her brothers and sister to free Paragon. Only she can do that – this adventure may help her understand who she really is.
When Avery goes to the castle, she discovers that the man sitting on the throne is not the one she’s looking for. Even worse, Xavier has been locked in the dungeon and everyone has forgotten about him.
I had a great time with this novel. I was thrilled to discover Xavier and to finally get Avery’s story. She is going to discover herself in this world that is so different, figure out what she really wants in life and help Xavier get his place back.
So this volume was a little different from the others, but just as well done and I loved discovering this story. The ending opens up new possibilities and I can’t wait to find out what’s next!
