The Mysteries UnfoldAs a starlighter, Koren knows her destiny is to save her fellow human slaves from the dragon’s bondage- but by following the orders of the smooth-talking dragon king, Taushin, has she in fact doomed her people and herself?
As Koren struggles over her choices, Elyssa discovers a new aspect to her Diviner gifts when her pendant begins to unlock mysteries surrounding the stardrops from the Exodus star.
Soon Elyssa, along with Jason and his father, also discover new truths behind the dragon’s prophecy and learn that Randall has teamed with a major war imminent and talk of a new starlighter in the air, confusion and uncertainty reign- something Taushin might have planned for all along.
I read this book without reading the first two books, good thing this is a stand-alone and besides Mr. Davis hints the backgrounds of the characters, so it’s not that hard for me to get a good grip to the story.
Praise for the cover, it’s wonderful and beautifully designed!
I really enjoy reading and learning about how Koren, Elyssa, Jason and the dragons worked together to work against the dragon, King Taushin, and other dragons. In this book, the climax started to an ultimate battle between Taushin, leading the dragons, and the humans from Darksphere who are attempting to lead the unwilling slaves. Diviner takes the reader deeper into the mysteries of Starlight, its past and the unusual, turbulent relationship between dragons and humans.
There are a lot of revelations. And the characters are more determined to free the people. I’m just a little bit confused about the white dragon, if he’s the creator, he should be able to alter things. Maybe Mr. Davis intend to reveal this thing in the next book. Or maybe we could relate it into our world, there is God, but He still let us choose, He gave us free will in order for us to choose right from wrong.
It’s a book full of action, with dragons flying, throwing flames, sword-fighting, etc,. I couldn’t seem to put this book down, I am so into every adventure in this book, the storyline is getting complicated what with all those characters, but a reader could still keep up, it seems every character thrust into the story takes on a life of its on, not letting (me) forget them that easily.
The author brings to existence a new world where dragons exist, I enjoy reading and I feel comfortable in this new world he created.
The best thing I want in this book are the subtle messages about wisdom, faith and hope. It’s just that as I read the lines, and then something struck within me. It’s never a nuisance at all, it made me realize things…:) thanks to the author…
Mr. Davis weaves a wonderful story of love, sacrifice, truth and faith. I can't wait to see how it ends in the Fourth book Liberator. The story unfolds even more and answers start to come to the surface, and it still leaves you with answers to come. So many of my questions were answered - and many new ones were raised. I cannot wait for the final book.
When Diviner ended we were left wondering who will survive. Will Starlight ever be free or will history be repeated? Will Starlight learn the truth or will Taushin blinds them as their new Black King?
A must read! Highly recommended!
