    Holy Grails and Spaceships

    I began reading Susan Kearney's The Pendragon Legacy series with book 3, Jordan, but Rion, book 2, would have been a better place to start. In Rion the willing suspension of disbelief is eased by sweet humor, and those shape-changing dragons that so startled me in Jordan appear as new and curious to the characters as they are to the reader. They're also very enjoyable to watch as twin babies scramble and play with the family dog before returning to human form for food.

    Rion is an entertaining tale, combining Arthurian legend with adventure, romance and science fiction. It continues the story begun in book 1, Lucan, where, it seems, the Holy Grail is both found and lost and the fate of humanity saved.

    Marisa is a telepathic human dragon-shaper, and for all the strangeness of that definition, she's a believable, interesting character. Rion is an alien with an alien agenda, but also with very human emotions and physical attraction. Each tries to deny their feelings for the other, for their various different reasons, and each will learn that love is more important than our reasons to hide it.

    The story travels from earth to alien planets via curious portals and magnificent space-ships. Its tie-in with the sequel, Jordan, is pleasantly satisfying, making me glad I've read both books, but sorry I didn't read them in the right order. While the romance may be a little too intimate for my tastes, and the story a little too close to the "great science appears as great magic" approach, Rion is a fun adventure and a satisfying addition to the series.

    Good I guess

    This is the first Kearney book I read, I can't say it's that great, there are part of the story that were nice, but there were other parts where I actually skipped pages.

    Rion - a satisfying and fun escape!

    While it is the second in the Pendragon Series, Rion is a satisfying stand alone novel.

    Rion is a convincing romantic lead. He must betray a woman that he's come to care for and respect in order to protect his countrymen. Rion does not make this decision lightly and he somehow continues to behave with heroism and decency. The story is strengthened by Marisa's independent and nature. She acts as a hero in her own right.

    The story is fun, engaging, and will have you eager for the third book in the series which comes out in March 2010.

    Publisher: Forever; 1 edition (December 1, 2009), 384 pages.
