Summary

From Sunday Times bestselling author, Nora Roberts, the final thrilling instalment in the epic Dragon Heart trilogy.

It's time for the final reckoning....

With Odran's defeat at the Battle of the Dark Portal, his quest to rule over Talamh and Breen has stalled—for now. But the terrible battle and heart-breaking losses have taken their toll. It's a time as painful as any Breen has ever known as she helps to treat the wounded, bring the dead home from blood-and ash-soaked battlegrounds and support her friends and family in their grief.

With the enemy cast out and the portal sealed it is a time to recover but there is little time to rest. Soon the enemy's witches begin to appear to Breen in her sleep, practicing black magick, sacrificing the innocent, and plotting brutal destruction. It is time for Breen to seek out those in desperate need of rescue and confront the darkness with every weapon she has.

An epic battle is coming. A battle Breen cannot afford to lose....

Enthralling

Totally loved this series. First set of novels that I have listened to on audible.. The narrator was excellent at changes voices and accents for each character. Could easily envision both worlds she had created. Hopefully I will find more of a similar nature.

Good ending to the series

I'll start with what I thought was a bit rushed and that is the final battle, but otherwise the book has a good build up, the characters develop and mature and the epilogue is lovely and funny and just the perfect ending 😁

Great end to a great story.

As the title said, but I would have liked to hear more about their life after the battle as well. And im suprised that there werent more casualties. I excpected a bit more difficulty in the last battle.

A satisfying conclusion!

Robert's work is my guilty pleasure and my happy place, so lovely to start seeing Black and LGBTQ inclusion here in her later work. And still steamy and gripping as ever. Lesbians next please Nora! 😍

A Fitting End

For Nora Roberts fans, this is a well anticipated time of the year but it's especially so this year with the release of The Choice, the final part of The Dragon Heart Legacy.

It's necessary to have read the other two novels in this trilogy to fully understand and enjoy The Choice....but OMG Nora Roberts has hit this one out of the park!

The characters, their relationships and their dialogue is, as usual, of the highest quality (We'd expect nothing less from this author).

The fight by good against evil, continues to be compelling and only falling asleep took me away from this amazing final episode.

As a Nora Roberts fan, I'm never fully satisfied but only because she writes such amazing characters. As a reader, I feel that I should be privy to the continuing lives of them all. Sadly I recognise that's never going to happen and the end of some stories just need to be 'imagined'.

The Choice is an absolute must for Nora Roberts fans. In fact the whole trilogy should be on the list for lovers of dragons, magics, Ireland and the Fae!
