Reviews of The Legend of Oescienne - The Finding (Book One) by Jenna Elizabeth Johnson

Stormswift reviewed on July 9, 2016

An epic fantasy adventure tale. A land where once humans; elves; dragons; unicorns; faun etc. lived in harmony is now under an evil king’s rule. Centuries ago, the king destroyed all humans and transformed the last humans of the city of Tanaan into dragons. Then a prophecy foretold that pure blood human girl would be born and would vanquish the king.

Jahrra is that child, placed by dragons in the care of a poor but caring couple. She is raised to believe that she is Nesnan (mix of humn/elvish/dwarven blood). She attends school and makes two friends but is tormented endlessly by a pair of wealthy cruel twins. She becomes the ward of kindly dragon Hroombra who is so old he can no longer fly, but she hates the younger dragon Jaax who is cold towards her.

Delightful story - after finishing this book, I bought the next 4 books in the series.
I deducted 1 star due to the grammar errors that could be corrected with proofreading.

I highly recommend this author and this book to anyone wanting to read something a little different. This book was like a breath of fresh air. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the first in this series and couldn't wait 'til I could get the second, which I am currently reading. (I am thoroughly enjoying the second one, too.)BUY THIS BOOK PEOPLE!!!!!!!
I,too, noticed the typos in the book. That happens to be a pet peeve of mine, but I honestly barely noticed. That is unheard of from me.
Love what I've read so far. Keep up the good work. I will be buying the rest of your books soon.
Thank you.

A basically well-written story that with intriguing characters. It would be a 5-star book except for some glaring misuse of language. For example. Jahrra is expecting Raax to bring the "anecdote" (read: "antidote") to a plague that has infected her foster father. There were a couple of gaffes like this. The problem with this type of gaffe is that it is not easy to quickly know what is meant, as is the case with gaffes like "you're" instead of "your".

I give the book 4.5 stars and have purchased the second volume.
