Fans of Nora Roberts will have something extra to be thankful about when Thanksgiving arrives this year. The best-selling author will release The Awakening, book one of The Dragon Heart Legacy series, on November 24th—a mere two days before the holiday.
Macmillan, whose imprint St. Martin’s Press has published Roberts books since 2017, describes the new series as follows:
Nora Roberts, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the epic Chronicles of The One trilogy, presents a new series of adventure, romance, and magic where parallel worlds clash over the struggle between good and evil in The Dragon Heart Legacy.
In the realm of Talamh, a teenage warrior named Keegan emerges from a lake holding a sword—representing both power and the terrifying responsibility to protect the Fey. In another realm known as Philadelphia, a young woman has just discovered she possesses a treasure of her own…
In the first book, The Awakening, Breen Kelly has come to Ireland, seeking answers to her family’s mysterious past. Here, she will begin to understand why she kept seeing that silver-haired, elusive man, why she imagined his voice in her head saying Come home, Breen Siobhan. It’s time you came home. Why she dreamed of dragons. And where her true destiny lies—through a portal in Galway that takes her to a land of faeries and mermaids, to a man named Keegan, and to the courage in her own heart that will guide her through a powerful, dangerous destiny…
There’s also a brief teaser video on YouTube:
I was able to acquire an advance copy of the book through Edelweiss. I’m not sharing my full review until the publication date is nearly upon us—which is hard because I want to talk about it now—but I did share a brief thought on Goodreads immediately after finishing the book.
Oh my goodness, I am in love with this story. What a great trilogy this is going to be!
Stay tuned for my review. In the meantime, you can pre-order The Awakening on one of the websites listed below.
I suggest you read it as quickly as possible once it arrives on November 24th, by the way. This isn’t the sort of book you can easily set aside, and reading it while you’re in the midst of cooking your Thanksgiving meal might be detrimental to your turkey.
