Loved it!!! I'm so excited that Nora has upgraded her writings and made me fall back in love with her books again. I can not wait for the next books to come out for this series! ( )

synopsis (from author's website):

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…

When Breen Kelly was a girl, her father would tell her stories of magical places. Now she’s an anxious twentysomething mired in student debt and working a job she hates. But one day she stumbles upon a shocking discovery: her mother has been hiding an investment account in her name. It has been funded by her long-lost father—and it’s worth nearly four million dollars.

This newfound fortune would be life-changing for anyone. But little does Breen know that when she uses some of the money to journey to Ireland, it will unlock mysteries she couldn’t have imagined. 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…

Very competently written -- she has a great feel for scene and sentence. It was a little plodding, as if everything had to be spelled out and described. Maybe because that is what her audience wants or because she knows she will be writing a trilogy so there is no rush? It's the first NR I've ever read, and I will probably read the next installments. HOWEVER, her depiction of the Black gay best friend (and the other gay characters) is horribly cliched and his dialogue is insultingly awful. ( )

I had to knock a star off for the slightly weird relationship between Breen and Marco. I get that they were very close best friends...but there was a lot of snuggling going on. Maybe that's an indicator that I'm cold and dead inside...but I don't snuggle with my platonic friends on a regular basis and it just felt odd to me. That said, aside from a sloooooow start to the action, I really enjoyed this one. I appreciated that the romance was allowed to develop slowly and the love interest wasn't a complete tool. I'll definitely be picking up the sequel when it's published. ( )

The Awakening by Nora Roberts is a captivating novel. I was immediately drawn into this tale and I did not want to put it down. The Awakening is the first installment in The Dragon Heart Legacy series. I thought it was well-written with developed characters and a complex plot. Breen Kelly learns her mother has hidden a vast sum of money from her. Breen is surprised to learn that her father who disappeared many years ago has been sending her money. This money will allow Breen to make changes to her life such as quitting her teaching position. Her roommate and best friend, Marco Olsen suggests she do something that she has always dreamed of doing. Breen has always wanted to visit Ireland. She rents a cottage for the summer in Connemara where she begins to dream of a magical place with red dragons. Breen is in for the adventure of her life. The Awakening is a magical tale. I like that the author took the time to establish the characters, storyline, and setting. Her vivid word imagery brought the scenery alive for me. We get to meet Keegan and Breen’s loving grandmother along with a cast of enchanting folks and creatures. There is good versus evil and a bad woman who is intent on causing conflict. I liked seeing Breen come out of her shell and blossom. Of course, The Awakening ends with a cliffhanger. We must now wait a year for the next tale in The Dragon Heart Legacy series. If you have never wanted to visit Ireland before, you will after reading this book. You can tell that the author did her research. I enjoyed the whimsy and humor in the story. Marco is a delight and I frequently laughed after reading his dialogue. My favorite phrase from The Awakening is, “Girl, take it from an old queen. Be who you are and the heck (I changed this word) with the rest.” The Awakening is a magical tale that will keep you riveted until the very last word. ( )
