Title: Lost Truth by Dawn Cook
Notable: Book #4 in the Truth series
This fantasy dragon adventure finally wraps up with Alissa, Strell, Lodesh and Connen-Neute going on a journey to find some long-lost comrades. Alissa and her true love are finally united, though that means one young man is left seriously disappointed.
After enjoying the previous book so much, this one was a bit of a letdown. The action was interesting, with several new characters being introduced (which was a welcome relief) and a completely new setting. Meeting Keribdis brought the story full-circle and it allowed Talo-Toecan to face the foibles of his past which had wreaked so much havoc.
The resolution to Alissa’s love triangle fiasco was sadly disappointing to me. I didn’t care much for her choice (I tend to root for the underdog), and it didn’t really seem to matter much anymore. In the previous book her relationship with this particular character had been neglected so much that I pretty much lost interest in it altogether. There wasn’t enough in this volume to convince me that she was really committed to the relationship. The other character she had been attached to is basically discarded at the end of the story and that really rankled me. Oh well. I’ll get over it.
I recommend Lost Truth to fans of fantasy, dragons and female heroines!
- A bit of violence
