Not everything in the Records of the Ohanzee matches what is written in the history books.

Having learned the disturbing news that the fifth book has fallen into Casimer’s hands, Nerissa and the Ohanzee make their way to the city of Maze where the Festival of Flames is about to begin. They plan to rendezvous with Charis and retrieve a set of spirit crystals that are elements crucial to fulfilling the prophecy. But when a letter arrives in the middle of the night from an anonymous sender claiming to be the owner of the sixth book, the Ohanzee will discover there is far more going on in the city than just celebrations.

Reflection: Dragon’s Bane is Book 4 of 4 in the first story arc of the Records of the Ohanzee series, which is written in a serialized style with a story line that flows continuously between books.

by Rachel R. Smith

Reflection: Dragon's Bane (Records of the Ohanzee, #4)Who and what do you trust when at every corner, an enemy cold be lurking or you discover that the carefully written Records of the Ohanzee clash with history books? There are still spirit crystals out there and Nerissa has learned that Casimer has gotten his vile hands on the fifth book. How can she get it from him without exposing herself or dying in the process? Is the mysterious letter true that book six is nearby?

As Charis makes plans to meet with Nerissa and the Ohanzee in the city of Maze to hand over another set of crystals, the prophecy’s fulfillment is precarious at best as goings on in the shadows become more dangerous and time is running out. Will all of Nerissa’s training be for nothing? Will it be enough to keep her alive? Will the team master their talents and their talismans or will they be at a disadvantage without all of the crystals?

As friends and allies gather to stand together with Casimer in their sights, a carefully laid, plan goes awry and now Nerissa must scramble to secure her hold on her beloved Chiyo, hold the Senca at bay and survive.

REFLECTION: DRAGON’S BANE is another of Rachel R. Smith’s intriguing entries in the Records of the Ohanzee series that turns pain, loss and betrayal into determination, bravery and a loyalty that comes straight from the heart. Feel the uncertainty, the faith in a better future and the struggles to reach beyond one’s best. With a mild touch of youthful romance, this is a saga not to be missed!

Ms. Smith gives life to her characters, true emotions and shared dialogue that feels sincere and believable.

I received an ARC edition from Rachel R. Smith in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
