Death matches. Dragons. Ancient secrets.
Sam and Jake are battle tested warriors, but nothing can prepare them for the Evil One.
Sam is eager for the attack they know is coming. Yet Jake has grown distant from her and won’t tell her why. Giant Lessers attack and attach a bomb to Jake’s arm. Sam is beside herself, but Jake has a deeper secret worry.
They are blackmailed - capture the magical dragon, Drasine, or Jake dies. Everyone wants Drasine, including the powerful Evil One, who has sworn to destroy KiraKu. Worse, Drasine is protected by a mysterious being no one has been able to defeat.
Sam will do anything to save Jake, but they don’t know who to trust. They are betrayed at every step.
And one of them may have to die to save the other....

Sam Green and the WhipEye Great Ones: Drasine Book 3 brings Sam Green, Jake and Charlie back together but this time they are fighting to save their world and Kiraku from the great Evil One – Gorgon and Magnar’s mentor/partner! Samantha and Jake are moving into dangerous territory … teenage angst along with some fierce and ferocious monsters stalking them.
Having to put their faith in one another while still having doubts about their relationship, Sam and Jake are charged with finding the great Evil One – did I mention that no one has ever seen this being?? He hides in plain sight and manipulates the guardians and everyone around him until he traps Sam with the golden dragon with healing fires, Drasine, in the “in between” place.
Nothing is as it seems, and some are not who they say … everyone has a secret agenda, but it is up to Sam, Jake, Charlie and Uncle Biggie to discover who to trust! Together they must expose the great Evil One and defeat him.
I have to say, this is one amazing book and series! There is immediate action and the listener is thrust smack dab into the middle of the mystery with the first few words. The author, Geoffrey Saign is wonderful and skilled at captivating his audience. His plot twists are epic leaving the listener stunned at times. This is a series that anyone could love – it has mystery, death matches, dragons, danger, surprise, adventure and above all else it has valued messages about friends, trust, love, and truth. There are a lot of characters and moving parts in this book but Saign does a beautiful job in keeping everything and everyone clear.
Lauren Holladay, the narrator, performs the book making each being come to life with the passion and energy she brings. It is obvious she has purposely selected the right voice for each character helping them to stand out, she moves the story along appropriately and captivates each listener with her smooth voice. Saign gives us an amazing story but Holladay gives it life through her talent and skill.
I highly recommend this book and series to anyone who enjoys mystery, animals, and adventure! This is one of those rare finds that the listener will find it difficult to shut off until the end. I cannot wait for the next one!
