This series of four books pulls you in...just when you think you know what is about to happen she pulls the rug out from under you! characters are introduced and develop as the plot thickens. Worth the time.

Considering getting the series, it was a good read but unsure if it will keep my attention for the other books.

Doesn't feel finished at all. Don't get unless you plan on buying the sequel as well.

Greeta is a young girl who is different from others in her village, she is pale and the others are darker. One day, a shaman comes to take Greeta away from her village, but the two get separated, and Greeta must find her way to safety. When she meets Finehurst, she thinks that her dreams of being married and having children will come true, but he is not who he seems, and she soon finds out that she is not who she seems to be either.

It was a good book I enjoyed it but I didn't realize it wasn't a complete ending and it doesn't look like there's something that goes beyond. I'm very disappointed

In spite of its rather simplistic wording, I'm still impressed enough to rate this a 5. It does end in a bit of a cliff hanger, but I knew that when I started it. Very good tale, well worth the read.

This an ‘arc” copy eBook supplied by the author. I am not receiving any monetary benefit or any kickback for this review. I received this arc for an honest review. This review is cross-posted on Amazon, Goodreads and given directly to the publisher. Dragonfly is a story about a girl trying to find her place in the world. Nelson writes a solid tale with an interesting twist. The premise is strong but seemed to stall in the beginning. The main character just didn’t seem to be getting anywhere. There was a scene that threw the mc into turmoil, but it didn’t feel resolved before the new turmoil began. But it was able to hold my attention and was fairly easy to read. Dragonfly is about finding yourself and your strength even when everyone including yourself is against you. It is written in a historical fantasy type setting, with third person point of view. It intricately intertwines Viking (Northman) and native American ideologies with our main character having one foot in each world. This could have been a higher rating for me, but I didn’t feel like I could connect with any of the characters. I have an intense need for strong, and dimensional characters. So many characters in Dragonfly seemed to show up, move the plot and then disappear. They didn’t stay or interact with the main character long enough for me to care about them. The only strong characters that I had a small connection with was the main character Greeta and the antagonist Finehurst. Greeta was interesting. She slowly grew a strength and backbone. I really liked the twist in her character. She was complex in the fact that she was the flux of strength and weakness. She was naïve and oblivious but had a cleverness about her that was not noticed in the beginning. Finehurst was a good antagonist. Hopefully, we will see and hear more of this character. Because he did his job as an antagonist in pushing the protagonist to be better. The plot was unique. I was surprised by the mixing of historical ideology and fantastical. That was what intrigued me most about this story. All in all, I like Dragonfly. Nelson had a compact writing style. It flows well from action to expose. The writing style is easy to read. I was left with so many questions. More questions than answers, unfortunately. But I see that there are 4 books total. So hopefully, we will get those answers. Especially, since it ended with a cliffhanger. Cliffhangers make me sad. I will be looking for the next book in the series. I give Dragonfly 4 out of 5 stars. I needed more character interaction and development.

It took me awhile to get into it because it started so slow, but eventually, it moved a little faster, but not without some glitches and gaps which makes me wonder about the whole "dreamtime" scenario. Those could have been more elaborately composed, giving more depth to the characters and their meaning. It almost appears that the author needed to hurry and find Shadow to finish the story without really having a direction or explaining Shadow's disappearance.
