The Beginning (The Legend of Oescienne, #2) By Jenna Elizabeth Johnson

How can lives change very very drastically

The story continues in the life of our heroine. Years pass, stories told, mysteries seen but will she ever learn the truth? What will happen when she does? Good to read the continuation of the story. Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult Excellent storytelling

It's not often I love the subsequent books in a series as much as the 1st but this really was an exception. So well written and full of action, drama and intrigue..A heavy dose of emotion throughout. Thoroughly enjoying my journey with Jahrra and pals. Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult Shaping up to be an excellent series!

This series seems to move slowly, but only because there is SO MUCH going on! I feel complete yet left yearning for more with the ending of each book. It's been fun watching Jahrra grow up and struggle through every hurt and triumph with her. Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult I absolutely love this book and series. It is well written, flows smoothly and is easy to read. It kept me engaged from the first page through the last.

I love the characters. Little Jahrra is quickly growing up. At the beginning of the book she is 12 years old. She has already been through so much in her short life. She has the best of friends in Scede and Gieaun, brother and sister who live just down the Great Sloping Hill, a great mentor and tutor in Hoombramantu, and Jaxx who occasionally pops in (although Jahrra may not consider Jaxx a friend).

We meet new character, see existing characters grow and change and learn a bit more about the outside world. Through the stories that are told you learn more about what has happened to the world in the past.

I can't wait to read book 3 and see what happens next. Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult Possibly a 3.5 score. I enjoyed it, but didn't love it. To be honest if it hadn't got the preview of the next book I would have given up on the series Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult

Twelve years have passed since Jahrra arrived in Oescienne and became the responsibility of the old Korli dragon Hroombra; yet much can happen in twelve years. So far, Jahrra’s life has been filled with adventure, danger, friendship and even loss. Despite what she has learned in school and what she has learned from life, she has no idea that she is in fact human, a child of the race that has been absent from the world of Ethöes for five long centuries . . .

But the girl’s identity must be kept secret, even from Jahrra herself, for if the Tyrant King of the East knew of her existence all would be lost. And as time goes by those responsible for the young human girl grow anxious and cautious, for there is evidence of an unknown danger in their midst; a danger they cannot see or hear, but one they can sense like a bad omen.

As Jahrra continues to grow and learn about the world around her, facing personal dangers, challenges and enemies of her own, she will become aware of the prophecy that she is meant to fulfill and what she must sacrifice in order to survive what lies ahead. The Beginning (The Legend of Oescienne, #2)

Even better than the first book in the series. The story moves along and it was interesting watching Jahrra grow up. I did however laugh a bit at the lake monster not because it wasn't well done but, it reminded me of an episode of Little House on the Pairie.

I look forward to the Third book especially looking forward to seeing how Jahrra and Jaxx will work together. Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult Twelve year old Jahrra is now finally starting to get the hand of how her life will proceed. With school, history lessons with her dragon mentor, and self defense lessons with the elves she's trying to squeeze in any little amount of time to be with her friends and just be a child.
But Jahrra isn't just a child. Her destiny is still unknown even to her, so she naturally doesn't realize the kind of danger she places herself in when she goes wondering around with her friends or does favors for her newest friend (a mystic).
However, the Crimson Kings spies are everyone and they are now on the hunt for the prophesied human. Their arrival has sped up Jaax's timeline for young Jahrra and now he's become her guardian and must convince her it's best that she leave the castle ruins to outrun the Crimson King's army.

I was sad to read about Jahrra's mentors demise. He had become such and important part of helping raise Jahrra to be who she is as she grows into adulthood. The book is a bit too lengthy still and could really use a lot of editing. There was still many times where places Jahrra's already been was once again described page after page. I hope we soon will get to learn the identity of the hooded figure that has been in a way protecting Jahraa in her dreams. Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult Very interesting world.

The concept of only one of her kind. Only chance for so many. Dragons of knowledge and strength. Strife of growing up difficult enough without so many hazards. Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult Truth and consequences.

Jarrah had always longed to know the truth about where she was from and why she was being raised by a dragon. Well she finds out and the truth comes with some very hard lessons Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult Jahrra is still learning and growing, but now she faces dangers and enemies. Eventually, she learns of the prophecy and also learns that she must sacrifice to survive. The question is what is it she needs to sacrifice. Science Fiction Fantasy, Childrens Books, Young Adult
