Book Review: Love’s Consequence

Title: Love’s Consequence (The Dragonspawn Saga #1)

Author: G.W. Steen

Narrator: Charlotte Cartlidge



The Dragonspawn Saga- Book One (of Five) 

Castles, magic, and sorcery abound in this fantasy tale of a young woman, Eryka Danek, as she sets out on a journey in search of her destiny. She finds herself alone when a strange storm erupts, destroying her village and killing all its inhabitants, including her parents. 

The dark lord, Alazais Moorlange, upon hearing in his mind the reciting of a sacred rune ritual, conjures a vision and sees his next conquest. Summoning his ageless, shape-shifting abilities, the old wizard is transformed into a young mage. His intent: to deceive and capture his newest victim. 

Eryka unwittingly falls under the enchanter’s spell, but it is not strong enough to thwart an intervention by a vengeful ghost. Will Alazais’ powers rule, enabling him to keep this innocent? Or will his nemesis, Hendrik Naguum, save Eryka from suffering the same fate as the vile wizard’s wife?

My Review

4/5 Stars

This book followed the typical hero’s journey where we meet our protagonist at a young age, and she is taught the magic that she’ll need throughout her life. When her sixteenth birthday comes, it becomes time for her to leave the village. When it is destroyed by an evil wizard, she is set out on a quest.

I loved the worldbuilding in the story and the construction of the MC’s personality. The only thing I didn’t really care for in the book was the thick romance at the beginning. It was just a bit too sweet for my taste.

Narration was nicely done.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
