My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Draigon Weather (The Legacies of Arnan Book 1) by Paige L. Christie, 4 stars.

This a fantasy story focusing around Cleod and Leiel. It starts out in Cleod’s life in his present day, but goes back and forth to their childhoods, starting around the time they first met. It slowly shows in great detail how each one of them grows and the paths they chose throughout their lives. There are many hardships and sad times, they become people they never imagined. The story is very moving. You feel Cleod’s determination to keep his promise while is young, and his guilt as an older adult. Leiel’s story is heartwrenching. The ones who are supposed to love her instead hate her. She could give up and let it break her, but instead she hides her time. Then things become clear that she never imagined.

The places and events are described so well, you feel like you are part of the story. While I have read stories involving dragons, I have not read one quite like this. The concept is unique and interesting, another reason I could not put the book down.

If you enjoy fantasy stories showcasing two people who strive to do one thing, but end up destined for something else, this book is for you.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Draigon Weather is the first book in The Legacies of Arnan series by Paige L Christie. This story took my mind to a different plane. This story is about Leiel and Cleod. Leiel is a marked woman and according to the town she is a tainted woman. She will be marked when Draigon Weather returns. Cleod is a friend of Leiel. Cleod is in a higher class and was able to join the Ehlewer Enclave. Cleod and Leiel are from different paths of society. Cleod vowed to avenge Leiel’s mother but will he be able to keep is vow to Leiel and the Ehlewer Enclave? Leiel is seeking knowledge that could have killed her mother. Will Leiel share the same fate?

Paige Christie is a mastermind story teller. This story is a coming of age story which fits in with the YA genre. The plot is magical and keeps going in directions that threw around a bend I did not see coming. This story is also told in two different POVs. Christie does this effortlessly and was able to follow along with the characters and their stories. I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves fantasy stories. I cannot wait to read more from this author.

Draigon Weather (The Legacies of Arnan, #1)Draigon Weather by Paige L. Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am so happy that I chose to give this new book and new author a read! This book takes what you normally expect from a fantasy, dystopian type novel and throws it out the window, only to be replaced with an epic journey that is so unexpected. This book has a bit of everything in it for everyone so if you normally don’t pick up fantasy don’t let that deter you from this novel. I was fascinated with the theme of feminism and the way the author wrote this into the story was so well done that I can’t help but fawn over it. We find a set of people in Draigon Weather, that have slowly built a life amid a world they feel they don’t belong in. Leiel and Cleod will make you rethink everything you ever expected from a dragon fantasy novel. I can’t wait to find out what will happen in the next book!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I do love novels about dragons, but when I first started this book, I was a little lost. But, as I persevered, I found my way. The story of Leiel and Cleod was epic and I am glad I persevered. I love a good adventure with heroes and heroines, which Draigon Weather had. As you read you enjoy the duel, but separate path Leiel and Cleod take. These paths place them exactly where they need to be. The story was intriguing and fun to read. I look forward to the next installment to  follow Leiel’s and Cleod’s journey and how it plays out.

Draigon Weather by Paige L. Christie is the first of The Legacies of Arnon book series. I was sucked into the story very quickly and did not want to put it down. There are great characters and story developments that left me wanting more. I really enjoyed the development of Cleod and Leiel. The friendship they share and how their lives are changed beyond their control is well done. I became invested in knowing what would happen to them next. I do not want to go into any plot points in the fear of giving something away. I look forward to the next book in this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Draigon Weather (The Legacies of Arnan Book 1) by Paige L. Christie is a refreshing fantasy story that is both unique and original and very well thought out. The story is told from a dual POVs which I love because it gives us greater insight into the characters and what was happening with the story. It flows easily and her narrative is well written. The experiences of the main characters are told back and forth through time allowing us to experience each and every loss, their friendships and their painful journeys. They learn truths and lies and dreams that can never be. Paige has woven a complex tale that encompasses a world of righteous men and special women who are so much more than they seem.

Leiel and Cleod as thick as thieves and when Leiels world is torn apart, Cleod makes a promise to her that neither of them ever dreamed would affect them as it does. It is a sacrifice so great that it leaves them on opposite sides of their reality. Consequences that neither of them as children would ever have seen. There is so much pain and suffering that it is palpable with each turning page.

I am really looking forward to reading the other books in this series. This is a great debut to the series.

Just off the top of my head I have to say this has been the best book I have read in quite a while. If I could give it ten stars I would. In Draigon Weather, Paige L. Christie has given us a marvelous cast of characters. The main characters, Leiel Sower and Cleod Woodcutter, were so carefully crafted that you know them. You know what motivates them and what they aspire to. They quickly grab your imagination. All the supporting characters in this excellent story are just as well crafted. The world that Christie has created for her characters is so well suited for them and has been so well described you feel like you are almost there. You can feel the heat drifting across the land. This is a book that will quickly grab your imagination and keep you reading long after the moon has crossed the sky. A new direction in Dragonlore. This is a book you will not regret reading.

5-stars

Draigon Weather (The Legacies of Arnan Book 1) by Paige L. Christie was exciting and adventurous. Cleod and Leiel were excellent main characters in this story. I loved every bit of it. Both characters were developed well and the author provided excellent detail spanning their younger years to the current day. Leiel was smarter than most girls of her time and more brave.

The storyline had an easy flow and each chapter was labeled to aid in the books organization. It is told from two different points of view but not once was I confused. The author made it very easy to keep track of time in accordance to what was occurring in the story. This book was well written and I highly recommend it.
