The Becoming is a good young adult or adult fairy tale. It is about power, family, friends, hatred, love all in the setting of a make believe universe. This is the second book in a series that can be read as a stand alone book but better if it is read knowing the characters from the first book in the series. The story ends with the hopes of another book to explain what will happen next to our protagonists. The Becoming received four stars in this review. It is recommended for people who like to dream of dragons, witches and a good story. ( )

I make it no secret that I love Nora Roberts’ books. I particularly love her fantasy novels. Perhaps it is because she is amazing at world-building. Maybe it is because her fantasy worlds tend to have an Irish basis. It could be the fantasy elements are everything I love about fantasy. The truth probably lies with all three ideas. What I do know for certain is that while I might forget the plot details of her suspense and romance novels, I never forget the details of her fantasy series, of which The Becoming is the second book in her Dragon Heart trilogy.

What makes this particular series, especially The Becoming, so good is not necessarily the magic or even the fantasy realm full of faeries, mermaids, and dragons. The story shines because of the relationships among the characters. Ms. Roberts always excels at creating bonds of friendship that are better than any familial ones. This time, I believe she outdoes herself in Marco and Breen’s friendship. Their dynamic is everything you could ever want in a best friend. The selflessness, the lack of complexity, the unconditional love each has towards the other – we should be so lucky to find ourselves in one relationship even half as pure as the one between Marco and Breen.

On top of that, we have Breen’s relationship with her grandmother and new friends. Found family in every sense, there is something inspirational and hopeful about each of her new relationships. It is as if the idea of friendship does not have to be complex or fraught with hidden jealousies. It is a lesson I wish more of us would learn, as I think social media makes us forget just what it means to be a friend sometimes.

As if the charm of Marco and Breen, the lushness of Talamh, dragons, mermaids, and magicks aren’t enough, we also get the growing relationship between Keegan and Breen in this second novel. While we all know how this part of the story will end, I love how Ms. Roberts doesn’t rush their relationship. With the leadership demands of one and others’ expectations of the other, the fact that they are taking their time and not rushing to define anything tells us more about each of their characters than anything Ms. Roberts could otherwise write. The scenes in which they cave to their mutual attractions are HOT, but I relish those scenes outside of the bedroom when they are just people with the weight of the world on their shoulders trying to do right by their people.

Honestly, Ms. Roberts could publish a grocery list, and I would buy it. I love her writing style that much. Yet, when I read stories like The Becoming, I feel justification for feeling the way I do about her books. In particular, The Becoming got me out of a depressive episode and reminded me that while we might not have dragons or faeries, there still is magic in the world if you look for it. And this is only the second book of the series! ( )

The Becoming by Nora Roberts is the second novel in The Dragon Heart Legacy series. While The Becoming can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading The Awakening first. I have read all of Nora Roberts’ novels, and, by far, this is my favorite series. I opened The Becoming and I was immediately engaged. I did not want to stop reading (but my dog was quite insistent that I cook his dinner as well as mu mother). I have gotten down the fine art of cooking and doing dishes while reading (I have a holder in the kitchen to keep my e-reader safe). Nora Roberts gave us a beautifully crafted tale with unique, developed characters, a special world, and mysterious magic. I felt like I was pulled into the story. I was there with Marco and Bollocks watching Breen train, seeing the Capital for the first time, and learning to cook with Marg. I love the world of Talamh with the fae, dragons, the wise, and so many others. The story just flowed from one chapter to the next. There are some love scenes that bring the heat that will delight romance lovers, but there is one scene I wish had not been included. It was too graphic and violent for my tastes. I admit that I was put off by the amount of foul language. I wish the characters had used creative swear words instead. Breen is a dynamic character. She has come a long way since her days of dying her gorgeous fiery red hair brown and wearing all beige. Breen has come into her own. Her magic is progressing quickly, her writing is going swimmingly, and she has Marco with her as well as Bollocks and her Gran. Breen is a smart, determined woman who manages any obstacle in her path. I love the relationships in this series. Family and friendships are at the heart of the story. Keegan cares for Breen, but he knows that the evil must be defeated before he can explore their relationship. The ending left me eager for the next tale in The Dragon Heart Legacy. The Becoming is a story of magic, love, heart, hope, and adventure. You will go on an emotional roller coaster reading this action-packed fantasy. The Becoming is a spellbinding story with daring dragons, a gamboling Bollocks, a giving grandmother, a feisty friend, a stalwart taoiseach, and a courageous key. ( )
