Overview

Twin brothers Jason and Matthias Inero are the favorite sons of the great dragon lord of fire. More often than not they get whatever they want. Matt wants to do great things for his people while Jason wants to go off and explore the world. Both can have what they desire, but not until they take a bride and enter into adulthood.

Enter Kat and Gwen, two girls from very different backgrounds. Kat is happy to leave her home when the royal guard comes to bring her to loving arms of her childhood sweetheart, Matt. Gwen on the other hand is livid to be taken from her farm only to be thrust into Jason's life, and he's not to thrilled with the idea either. They have one year to find happiness with each other, or else they will be placed at the mercy of the ruthless dragon lord Lynx. Favorite or not, dragon law must be obeyed.

As their nation begins to prepare for war against a neighboring tribe, the brothers find themselves as key components in the battle plans. A dark prophet has had a vision of Inero victory, but at what cost? Both must decide where their loyalties lie and what they're willing to sacrifice – including each other – to achieve their goals.

    I really liked this book! It was about twin dragon brothers, Jas

    I really liked this book! It was about twin dragon brothers, Jason and Matt. These dragons looked like humans most of the time though. Tradition dictates dragons of a certain age must be married to become men. On a certain date they would choose from a lineup of human girls to marry. Since they would choose from a lineup it was pretty much an arranged marriage. Choosing their bride would be the marriage ceremony, and immediately following could do married things. Most of Jason's 100+ brothers took advantage of that fact, but Jason was different. He wanted to love his wife before they were intimate. I loved that about him. At the start of the book it was time for Jason and Matt to become men and get married.

    This book had amazing chemistry between the couples! It was fun to watch two couples in completely different relationship situations. I wish I could discuss more, but I don't want to spoil the read for anyone. Maybe I'll choose this book for my book club when it's my turn to host.

    The story was told from the four main characters: Jason, Matt, Kat, and Gwen. It was fun to hear everyone's perspective throughout the story. In other books switching POV sometimes annoys me because I don't want to move from the action of a certain character, but in this book I enjoyed it. I loved all the characters and really wanted to know what they were thinking and feeling. The author did a great job!

    I'll admit I did have favorites. I really liked Jason and Gwen; they were awesome. I wasn't happy with the ending though. Hopefully there will be more closure in future books. Overall a great read! If you love romance this book is definitely for you!

    Note about content:
    Let me explain my thoughts since this blog is called Clean Teen Fiction and everyone has a different definition of "clean" content. I don't mind the mention of intimacy when the couple is married as long as it's not detailed. I'm happy to report that I didn't find anything inappropriate with this book, but a younger teen might not be interested in reading about arranged marriages and how that effects the relationship.

    Legend of the Oceina Dragon was one of my favorite books of 2011

    Legend of the Oceina Dragon was one of my favorite books of 2011, so I was anxious to get my hands on this one.

    Legend of the Inero Dragon takes place at the same time book one does. It was fascinating to see the other end of things. The Inero Dragons are much different from any of the other nations. They do not fly, are smaller, and they are very aggressive and tricky. J.F did a wonderful job of expanding the reader's view of the different nations in this book. The character and world development is nice and never felt boring or slow. The story has equal parts romance and action. I just love the way Ms. Jenkins writes. I feel like I slip into the story and am watching everything actually happen. Third person really allows the reader to slip into each of the character's minds, allowing us to understand why decisions are made.

    In book 2 we meet the Inero twins, Jason and Matt. They are complete opposites. I found myself slowly falling in love with Jason. Certain events has me questioning if I will like him in book three. They pick their brides through the Elite. That's a really interesting part of the story. Watching the two couples grow and change was a big part of the story as well as prophecy. I believe big things will come to pass in book three.

    Lynx, the boy's father, is hard to figure out. It's unclear if he really does care for his sons, or if he is just using them as pawns for his schemes. It seems like everyone is being manipulated by him. Navi, his current wife, and Chris, her bodyguard, are great additions to the plot. Kat was slightly annoying, but I loved Gwen. I really do hope her and Jason will prevail!


    This book was very good, not as good as book one, but still a great installment to the series. There was a lot going on, and I think is the partial calm before the storm.


    This book was a fast read and really set the way for book three. It released today, so I'm very excited that I do not have to wait to find out what happens to all of these characters that I've grown so attached to. I encourage readers to pick it up if they liked book one, and if you have no read book one, I recommend it! I love this series because it is a breath of fresh air. It's a unique paranormal romance that has a wonderful new world, full of dragons, war, and love!

    I love how this book gives you the Inero side to the events that took place in book one. I have to say, the Ineros are pretty unpleasant as a whole. Something is building. A battle maybe? There is an aspect of good vs evil beginning to appear that I didn't expect. This is turning into a pretty unique series. I'm curious to see what happens next.

    Legend of the Inero Dragon by J.F. Jenkins was kindly provided to me by the publisher for review. The opinions are my own.

    I got this book for free from Astaea Press, in exchange for an honest review.

    What I liked:

    the contrast between the wives of the two brothers

    Kat & Mathias were in love which should have made her transition easier, instead it made their relationship weaker because they took a lot for granted- showed what miscommunication can do to any relationship

    I have a baaaaaaaad feeling about the new baby dragon being a girl and what it might mean for her future (a political pawn?)

    What I didn’t like:

    Gwen kept saying things which made it seem she was infatuated while her actions were the opposite

    A little more of the harem politics would have made the story more interesting

    the devil and the angel part felt so alien and not part of the story at all-made the ending disappointing.

    I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This is Book 2 of The Dragon Saga. This novel’s focus is on The Legend of the Inero Dragon. The timeframe is about the same time as in The Legend of the Oceina Dragon. This is where we get the Inero perspective and find out what causes the Ineros’ dislike of the peacekeeping Oceinas. I enjoyed the God/Devil portion, considering what happens after; it makes you wonder which inhabits which twin. Once again, really awesome characters, Kat was a bit too needy for me and I personally think Lenora is using her. There are so many things I was left hanging on and I literally screamed when I ran out of pages. I can’t wait to review book three, and hopefully it all comes together by then.

    Great fantasy read

    Legend of the Inero Dragon, book 2 of the Dragon Saga series takes place on the other side of the dragon world on the island of the Inero. There is some overlap between books 1 and 2 so if you read the first book, there will be an important event that you will see coming. I really enjoyed this book just as much as the last. The first book took place on the island of the Oceina and after reading that book, I started to think of them as the "good guys." However, book 2 is from the point of view of the Inero dragons, which I had previously thought of as the "bad guys." While my mind isn't completely changed, as I read, I found myself invested in members in each family and I am impatient to see how everything turns out.

    Jason and Matthias are twins and they choose Gwen and Kat as their bride. I love how both Mathias and Jason are both complex and flawed but I didn't care for Gwen or Kat much. I will say that the heroines in both books haven't been my favorite. While Gwen and Kat have different personalities, they seem to have the same voice. I would expect for a girl who has grown up the city and a girl who has grown up in the country to sound completely different. While I saw they were different people, I felt their characters could have been developed a bit more.

    Unfortunately the book came to an end as everything seemed to be getting started and I will be sitting on my hands waiting for the next book. There is quite a cliff hanger at the end of this book but it was more exciting then annoying. Overall, I really loved this book and I find that I am enjoying this series very much. Read this is you want to feel excited about a series. This one certainly does it for me.

    I have really enjoyed this series of Dragon books by J.F. Jenkin

    I have really enjoyed this series of Dragon books by J.F. Jenkins. The world created by Jenkins is beautiful fantasy world. Having read the Legend of the Oceina Dragon first, I was eager to dive into the Legend of the Inero Dragon. This story introduces the Fire Dragons and their culture. After reading the Oceina book, I expected the Inero Dragons to be selfish, power hungry, and bloodthirsty. However, Jenkins introduces us to Jason and Matthius, a pair of identical twins, who are favored sons of the Dragon Lord Lynx. The story begins by introducing the reading to a couple of girls, Kat and Gwen, being chosen for the Elite. The Elite are taken from their families and lined up in an impersonal ceremony to be chosen as a wife of a dragon. Kat and Matt were previously best friends and eager to become mated. Matt is the favorite son and highly involved in the dragon politics. Kat is insecure and becomes pregnant quickly. Matt is asked to do take an leading role in the beginning of a war among the dragon tribes.

    Jason seems more calm and laid back than his twin Matt. He picks Gwen by looking into her eyes for her soul. He is so attentive and insists on taking the time to build a relationship between himself and Gwen. Gwen feels very out of place as a wife of an important dragon who is expected to lay about a pool and gossip. I loved Gwen and identified with her immediately and rooted for her and Jason to fall in love. Kat and Matt were an adorable couple before they mated but as they changed I wasn't as sure about them. I really felt Kat's uncertainty. I wanted there to be a villian after reading the Ociena book--I really wanted to dislike Matt or Lynx. While, I disliked the turn the story took near the end(I don't want to spoil), it was only because I wanted to root for Jason and Gwen. In the end, I was left uncertain of who was good and who was evil and out for selfish gain. The only reason I rated 4 stars is this wasn't as much of romantic story for me and I throroughly enjoyed Oceina more than this one. This book was the other side of the story and takes place simultaneously as the Oceina book. I highly recommend these books for anyone who enjoys paranormal shifter stories especially dragon lovers.
