Series: The Droseran Saga

I never thought I'd be a space opera fan, but this series has made a believer of me! I am on the launch team for book three and was given an ARC ebook for review, but I also purchased my own copy.


The war he fears may be the very one he’s been called to start.

Held captive, tortured by monsters of a nightmarish alien race, Marco Dusan clings to a final goal: keep these beasts from the Quadrants, even if it means orchestrating his own death. But his dreams betray that singular design. In them his bonded calls to him across lightyears. Does he leave her to fight Symmachia alone, or risk bringing an unwinnable war to every planet in the Quadrants?

On board the alien dreadnought, Eija Zacdari flounders, torn amidst military machinations, prophecies, and an inexplicable bond with one of the fearsome creatures who have imprisoned her friends. Only by uncovering the truth about an ancient conflict now shrouded in deception will she find her place.

Faced with her true identity, Eija sees her purpose snap into focus, and she realizes the war Marco fears may be the very one he has been called to start.

My Review:

If you're a fan of Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, Star Wars, and Star Trek you're going to want to make sure The Droseran Saga is part of your collection! This series should be in the same list as those other stories! Shadow of Honor continues this fantastic series.

With book three we're taken back to the Quadrants. We have three different main storylines and locations happening through this story. The first is with Isaura and Kersei, the second with Marco and Eija, and the third is with Tigo. They all move smoothly from one chapter to the next while we wait with bated breath for them all to be together fighting the enemy!

The entire story was a constant sensation of heart stopping moments. Talk about holding your breath during the intense moments, I'm not sure how I made it through without an oxygen tank! lol There were a LOT of surprises, but things are starting to make sense as we dive more into this Saga.

There's SO much going on with this story I won't be able to cover it all. And if I did, there were be spoilers galore. We want to avoid that.

We'll start with Isa and Kersei. Isa is a strong character who tries to stand in the stead of her husband, Marco. Kersei, y'all, my heart still goes out to her. I have a soft spot for her and have since book one. Her feelings are still raw with all that's happened in a short period of time. Both of these women go through SO much in this story.

Then there's Marco, Eija, and Reed. They've jumped far away from everything they know and what they encounter and learn along the way is mildly mind blowing. I felt so bad for Reed because he's just and Eidolon trying to complete the mission they started. Marco is still the incredible character we've come to love in this series. His main goal, to save his people and get back to Isaura. Eija... well, her story really unfolds in this story!

Lastly, there's Tigo. He's with the Faa'Cris training men to fight. He's still a cloud of frustration walking around on two legs. His story is also one that unfolds in an interesting way! Jez, too. How book two ends with a shock of who she is spills into book three and we get to know her and her sisters better.

The detailed elements that make up this entire book show how well the author has thought out this full story. How she created this entire universe, the Draegis, the languages, the intricate storyline is a credit to her skill! She has brought the Quadrants to life and has made this world one the reader can't help but care about.

This has become one of my favorite all time series and while I'm excited for book four, I'm also not ready for this series to be finished. I have become a huge fangirl of the series and want it to go on & on!
