    1. What I liked about it:the beginning- reminded me of the story from mythology where Andromeda was being sacrificed to the sea monster[image error]the author gives us enough of a glimpse of the world of Dragons and their different types which intrigues and makes you want to read morethe burning ritual when the father died was another thing I really likedhow the issue of Darien’s falling for Tai was dealt with and would otherwise have become “insta-love”!how Tai and Darien continued to strugg [...]

    2. ****Audio Review*****This was a re-read for me. I read the original book a few years back and decided to experience it in audio this time around.Any story with dragons makes me perk up and take notice so I was eager to dive in. This is an interesting blend of forced marriage, suspense, magic, and young adult elements. I enjoy the dragon world that the author created.The story opens with young Kai thinking she is on the point of being sacrificed to the dragon lord for the purpose of keeping her w [...]

    3. Wow! That's the only thing I could say after finishing the book.Mrs. Jenkins has created a brilliantly original story that is full of romance, mystery, powerful emotions, great characters, and dragons! This is the second series I've read about dragons, Eragon being the first. While Eragon was interesting and action filled, Legend of the Oceina is full of the love and romance that those books were missing. If you are anywhere near the romance junkie I am, this book will definitely not disappoint! [...]

    4. I'm having a hard time rating this book. I think my rating stands between a 2.5 and 3.The idea behind the story was very original and creative. I really loved the idea of the dragons - shifting into human form and taking human brides. It was all very interesting and different from other stories in this genre. The problem I had was with the execution of the story. The writing was disjointed at times, leaving me confused and sometimes lost. The grammar and punctuation was also lacking quite often, [...]

    5. A delightful fantasy, this story is unusual in that it is set in modern times. Characters had their cell phones and other creature gadgets and yet the world seemed much less populous than our world. The lives of the inhabitants seemed less frantic-paced, more spiritually guided – and then, of course, there are the magnificent sentient, telepathic dragons. I could not put the book down once I began reading. This is the first book in a planned series but in many ways, as I read, I felt as though [...]

    6. Every 8 years in Oceina Island the priests make a sacrifice to the great water dragon Lord Oceina. The sacrifice has to be a pure girl no older than 18 years old. If they refuse to this sacrifice the island will lose the protection the water dragons offer and will be left at the mercy of other species of dragons that are not as compassionate as they are. What the people from Oceina don’t know is that the sacrifice is not what they think it is, but much more than that.This book is a contemporar [...]

    7. The first few pages were a bit confusing, BUT you will be thankful for them later. You will see the stages of love unfold between two people who at first are not on the same page. You will be amazed as you watch Tai grow out of her shell where she has hid from the world. Both Tai and Darien have great potential to grow as characters and this was a great way to start the series. A lot of ground work has been layed out here. You learn of the dragon races, some of their traditions and you get a hin [...]

    8. I was a bit worried at the start of the book, as I found myself confused right off the bat. Thankfully by the time I hit chapter three (short chapters) everything fell into place and I was off and running. Jenkins is very creative with building her own view of dragons. The four dragon races that represent the elements have qualities and characteristics that most people could only dream of. Her characters show great potential for growth which is necessary for a good series. It was a novel worth r [...]

    9. An amazing read for anyone who loves dragons! Jenkins builds a fantastic world centered around the life of Darien, the next Oceina Dragon lord, and his wife, Tai (not by her choice). Jenkins combines romance, mystery, betrayal and death in the first installment of the Dragons Saga, a series I can't wait to read the next of. Darien and Tai are characters that stay with you long after the book has been closed.

    10. I may have some partial bias because I'm friends with the author, but I really love this book of hers. Even back before it was published and I read little pieces as she finished them, I begged her to keep writing it and was infinitely frustrated when she would tease me about what was going to happen.This is a story that is addictive like crack. Its got its flaws, which all books do. No book is absolutely perfect. But despite those, this is great and I want to read more in this world.

    11. This book was very interesting. I was wondering how it was gonna progress and it did not disappoint.

    12. Lord Oceina approaches the island Of Oceina when it is time for the giving of a sacrifice. This sacrifice enables the island people to live without fear of the other dragons nearby, and live life without worrying about the lives of their people. The sacrifice must be a virgin, no older than 18 years old, of pure blood; this sacrifice is given to Lord Oceina as a trade for peace, safety and protection for the island residents. The residents find the sacrifice is just and acceptable and even the b [...]

    14. This review was orginally posted at Pages of Forbidden Love My Thoughts:I instantly wanted to read this book because there are not many books where dragons are involved, well not unless you are going to read an epic fantasy title. So I was super excited about a book that featured romance and shape shifter males that turned into dragons. This one certainly is a mix between YA and Adult so I would say maybe save this one for older teens because there is some mention of things that go on behind the [...]

    15. To start, I will say that I have never read a book with so many grammatical errors. The punctuation was terrible. Also, there were many places where letters were left off the ends of words, and the wrong was word was used. For example, I saw 'threw' and 'through' mixed up in at least three places.I think the plot was really creative and had a lot of potential. I will say that the entire book was kind of slow, and about one hundred pages in I did consider quitting. But I forced through. I'll say [...]

    16. I don’t think I’ve ever been more frustrated with a book. Dragon stories really draw me, and I thought that this premise seemed unique, a fresh take on an old tale. A virgin is sacrificed to a dragon only to find out that said dragon is one super sexy dude who wants to spend the rest of his life with her…steamy. Ugh…I couldn’t have been more wrong. Although the main characters are teenagers, I felt the content would have been more suitable for NA or even just adult. I see few teenagers [...]

    17. Sure does leave room for another book :) Looking forward to that one :) When I first saw this cover I wasn't expecting a YA book :) But it was - but that's ok - because it was a really good story. Tia was chosen to be a human sacrifice for the Dragon Lord who protected all the people on her small island where she lived with her mom. Tia didn't want to be sacrificed - but she knew that the people were depending on her. Darien Ocina - the 7th son of the Dragon Lord himself was soon to turn 18 year [...]

    18. I have always had a fascination with dragons, so while scoping through the Barnes and Noble store (on my Nook) I found this beauty and decided to pick it up. I ignored all the other reviews because I wanted to form my own opinion rather than not picking it up because someone else decided to say it was horrible. Besides the synopsis was kinda irresistible I loved the story line already!The Legend of Oceina Dragon is about a girl, named Tai, who is to be sacrificed to the great Dragon Lord- Oceina [...]

    19. Dragons are fascinating creatures of myth that eat virgin sacrifices and breath fire. Well, not really in Oceina. In this wonderful world of fantasy, Dragons are revered in religon sacred and a direct line to God. Priests and Priestesses are the only ones who can communicate with them. This tale opens to an Ociena Dragon asking the priests for a virgin sacrifice. The dragon is very particular and wants only Kai, a regular girl who is her mother's only child. Kai doesn't want to leave her mother [...]

    20. I'm sorry I regret buying this book. Ive never been so utterly disappointed by a book before. I was excited to read this. Ever since reading Firelight Ive grown a new found interest in dragons. Which leads me to discuss the things I did some what like about this book.1. I liked the new take on dragons. They are shape shifters and Messengers from god. The were send to Earth to protect the people. Every 8 years a sacrifice is made to the dragon, a young pure woman. Everyone thinks that the dragon [...]

    21. My Review:My persoanl enjoyment rating-4Overall- 3.5I like stories where the character or characters are thrown into and stuck in a predicament they otherwise may not have chosen for themselves. Case in point, Tai being the sacrifice to the Dragon Lord to wed and not die. Hmmm, curious? I know I was.What I loved is meeting Tai and Darien at this point in their lives. It seems they are written as the pre-Hero/ Heroine. Both are young and still maturing- Tia with her abrupt new life and Darien wit [...]

    22. Chosen as the sacrificial virgin, Tai, though terrified, accepts her death sentence in order that others living in the small island paradise may continue to prosper, protected by the winged, water dragons known as Oceina Dragons.Darien is a young Ociena dragon with exceptionally strong magic that is able to effortlessly shape shift into an attractive human male. Soon he will be celebrating his eighteenth birthday. For years he has watched Tai grow into a beautiful, kind, and intelligent young wo [...]

    23. Rating: 3.5My thoughtsCover: I'm loving it. Yes it is not published by a big publisher and maye the cover is cover abusted out there, but this is exactly how I pictured Tai and Darien. On of my new beloved fictional couplesBook: I signed up for the tour of book two after i found i could read book 1. I took a leap of faith.I could have hated these books.Happy to have read it. Once upon a time the Great Lord created dragons to protect mankind. 4 types of dragons. 4 different elementsWe see Tai, a [...]

    24. Source: Received from author courtesy of the Teen Book Scene. Many thanks goes to J.F. Jenkins and Teen Book Scene for sending me a copy of this book for review. I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review. My rating: 3.5/5Darien and Tai are from two different worlds. Darien is a dragon, and Tai, well, she's going to be the latest sacrifice to the Dragon Lord. Tai accepts her duty with dignity, however she wishes she had time to live life a little before the sacrifice. D [...]

    25. Overall, this was a pretty good story. It is original in the fact that it's about dragons who can shift into human form. These dragons are only born male, so they choose a female human to marry from an island the dragons protect. The people of the island know about the dragon's existence, but the fact that the dragons can take on a human form is kept secret. When the dragon turns 18 and chooses a wife from the island, everyone on the island believes that the chosen girl is a sacrifice. She is ne [...]

    26. THOUGHTS/OPINION:This book had a lot of potential and I was really shocked that I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I found the heroine a little no scratch that really immature. She was offered as a sacrifice to the Dragons which she did props to her. She misses her mom I get that but the night of the sacrifice she sees a really HAWT guy and has sex. Then blames him repeatedly over and over that she is just a glorified breeding tool. She won’t listen to him and she doesn’t beli [...]

    27. Legend of the Oceina Dragon is the first book in Ms Jenkins’ Dragons Saga. I love the fantasy world that Ms Jenkins has created for this series. She did a wonderful job of creating a dragon mythology that intertwines with the human world. There are 4 dragon types: Oceina (water), Inero (fire), Terran (earth), & Aero (wind). Each dragon type has its own strengths and weaknesses along with its own way of keeping their “secret”. You see, all dragons are born male and so they are able to c [...]

    28. Dragons oh my! I've never had the desire to read a book about Dragons. And I never thought I would enjoy it as well. J.F. Jenkins' The Dragon Saga breaks the mold of all the stereotypes I created in my head about Dragon books - just goes to show you that you really can never judge a book by its cover.The Legend of the Oceina Dragon is a wonderful tale about the humanity of dragons with a splash of old world magic - they are not just beasts who breath fire.
