Review: Earthborn

Author Leia Stone
Format e-book

Published Feb. 2, 2018

After finding out about her unique heritage, Sloane is taken under the wing of an Earth druid. She’s told she must learn to control both of her warring powers or they will consume her. She needs a special staff, made just for her, to help channel her unique magic. The problem? It’s only made by one very reclusive elf. She and her team set off to hunt down this elf in hopes of controlling the dangerous power within her. But what she doesn’t know is that she too is being hunted. 

My Opinion

Second books tend to be filler books in a series. Which is what Earthborn was, a filler book. The reader gets a bit more background into what is going on and why the druids hunt dragons. The author also gives us a little more about how dragons were created, and why which is pretty on point.

There is a new mentor in town, Isaac and we learn more about Sloane’s hybrid status. She is embracing both sides of her, yet this addition is heavy on the druid side. Pretty sure this one has something going on with Eva. 

Both Logan and Sloane have accepted that they are a mated pair. Their relationship progresses but man I still feel like there is a lack of chemistry between these two. Like it is forced or something. 

Again, the best thing about this book is the secondary characters.  Nadine, Isaac, Eva even the elf they are hunting for are all more interesting than the main two characters.  Would love a story of all of their stories.

Yeah this one ends in a cliffhanger. Which is a great way to get a reader like me, one who is on the fence about the series to want to continue reading it.  I hate when I review a book and basically say it was okay.  That is really all I can say about this was okay.

My Rating 3 out of 5 stars

Favorite Quote “You would make such a cool Disney princess. You have all the right ingredients. Orphaned, weird undiscovered powers, loves to be out in nature and of course, affinity for animals.”
