Faced With Destiny By Caleb Wright

It’s time to focus on relationships, as all the characters pair up in the fourth book of the series.

Despite the building tension of book three, book four begins a bizarre one and a half years after the end of the last book. Tatsuo and Theo (who must now be 10?) have been moldering in a dank prison for 18 months, but don’t worry, the rest of the Dragolitha have been enjoying themselves training, so it’s all good.

I was excited to read this book after book three, expecting it to start with the rescue of Tatsuo and Theo and end with the defeat (or victory) of Ramathule.

Unfortunately, I was wrong.

In a bizarre twist, the characters have spent 18 months pairing off and getting loved up. Well, most of the characters that is. Poor Tatsuo and Theo are stuck in prison, with Theo’s speedy growth causing him great pain.

The ending is abrupt and leaves everything up in the air. I had wrongly thought that this was the final book in the series, but it obviously isn’t. I’m not sure when the author is planning on releasing another installment, or even if he is.

As I am not a fan of romance, I found the focus on the love lives of the characters uninteresting. The pacing felt off and there seemed to be little connection to what had gone before. Despite it being technically better written than the first two books, I enjoyed book four the least.
