My rating: 5 stars
After five hundred years’ labor destroying worlds, half-dragon half-human Aelana returns to her home planet. She expects to be anonymous, but instead she is worshipped as a god. She finds the reincarnation of her centuries-dead first and only love and life begins anew. Little does she know, however, that a shrewd and formidable evil lays in wait, one with the power to undo everything she’s worked for. To maintain the balance of the universe, she must confront and destroy the menace before it annihilates her and everything she loves.
Wucaii by Pembroke Sinclair
Sometimes a book comes along that just sweeps you up into its world and you marvel at how different it tastes. Wucaii by Pembroke Sinclair is one of those books that took me into a world of dragons, evil, the possible end of mankind and a love that has lasted through the ages and reincarnations of two souls meant to be together, but always torn apart. In a world far beyond our knowledge, dragons are the caretakers of planets. They feel the pain each planet feels as they are destroyed from within through the dirt of pollution, the hatred of wars and the greed of the inhabitants, who take and take while failing to protect the world they live in.
Aelana is part dragon and part human, she has spent hundreds of years destroying worlds so they may rise again, hopefully better and wiser. Earth’s time has come to be “cleansed” and for Aelana, returning to her home planet so long after she left it finds her caught up in a fight for all she believes in as she is forced to stand against a power much stronger than hers with the ability to bring chaos to the delicate balance of the universe.
Flashback to Aelana’s time, when her change began, when the only ones to accept her were the dragons as you learn to understand the actions Aelana takes at the behest of the dragons. Theirs is not a cruel action, but one meant to save the universe for the future.
Little did Aelana know she would once again, find her soulmate in a new reincarnation. The bond is familiar, but as humans they are strangers, making her job all the more difficult to carryout. Will she be forced to choose between the universe and the man her heart craves?
Pembroke Sinclair is not a follower, she blazes her own trail in the literary world and sets each page on fire with vivid details, intense emotions and an intricately patterned plot that weaves a beautiful tapestry of words to get lost in. Follow a very strong heroine as she finds the will to take on her hardest assignment yet. Feel her emotions, her strengths and her sorrows as she is tested to her limits and beyond, while learning inner truths about her own heart and mind.
Simply a fascinating, well-planned plot, paced to perfection. Definitely a hidden gem in the world of reading!
