The Becoming excerpt

I know you’ve been waiting for a peek at The Becoming, book 2 of The Dragon Heart Legacy, and that time has come!

First, the official description:

The world of magick and the world of man have long been estranged. But some – like Breen Siobhan Kelly – can walk between the two. She has just returned to Talamh, with her friend, Marco, who’s dazzled and disoriented by this realm–a place filled with dragons and faeries and mermaids (but no WiFi, to his chagrin). In Talamh, Breen is not the ordinary young schoolteacher he knew her as. Here she is learning to embrace the powers of her true identity. Marco is welcomed kindly by her people–and by Keegan, leader of the Fey. Keegan has trained Breen as a warrior, and his yearning for her has grown along with his admiration of her strength and skills.

But one member of Breen’s bloodline is not there to embrace her. Her grandfather, the outcast god Odran, plots to destroy Talamh–and now all must unite to defeat his dark forces. There will be losses and sorrows, betrayal and bloodshed. But through it, Breen Siobhan Kelly will take the next step on the journey to becoming all that she was born to be.

You’ll find the written excerpt here: The Becoming excerpt. And for the first time, we also have an early listen to the audio book: Audio excerpt.

Just 80 days until The Becoming is in stores on November 23. Enjoy!

  4. Sounds like my kind of book. What is the name of the first book so I can get it and read them in order.

  5. So excited!!! Finally something to look forward to as the world seems to be burning around us.

  6. I can’t wait. The excerpt just made want more! I will be re-reading the awakening again and again until this book comes out!

  7. I love it, I can’t wait to read it, I will reread the first one, I love her books

  8. Is it November yet?
    This is going to be a great book, I’m so excited!

    I’ve read The Awakening 8 times and I will probably read it again before November. Such a great story.
    I understood Breen’s mother’s reasons for trying to make Breen just “average” blend in and stuff. But when Breen returned and she revealed what she’d learned she was downright cruel. She showed she never truly understood what Eian’s life was about. In some ways she was self centered.

  9. 80 days, I can do 80 days . . .maybe. Something to look forward.

  10. I just read the excerpt! I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!
    Nora does it again!

  11. I can’t wait to get it. I wanted to keep reading. I am going to read the first one again.

  12. Can’t wait I love Nora’s books I am from Hagerstown Maryland …I’ve met her a few times at book signing in her store

  13. I’m being patient since I like to have the entire trilogy so I can read them one after the other.

  14. Will reread the first before Becoming, but I am looking forward to it.

  15. Wahoo! Looking forward to enjoying, rereading and collecting Book 2. The new In Death series book arriving on Tuesday will also be greeted with cheers at our house.

    Thank you, Nora, for continuing to consistently create stellar literature, especially these past two years. Over 10,000 people have died from Covid-19 in my state since January 2021. At our home, we’re living in a safety bubble of our own making, and your writing helps keep it positive, enjoyable, sustainable. We’re also looking forward to temporarily moving our bubble up north to your inn for a weekend this Fall. (Congrats to MD for efforts to vaccinate/mask up/save lives!)

  16. I can’t wait! I love these characters! Seeing Nora Roberts, the queen herself, writing such prominent LGBTQ+ characters into this amazing fantasy world, especially gay men, is just wonderful. Love her books, and I’m beyond thrilled for November.

  17. Why, oh why is the excerpt just 4 pages? Forgotten was 9 pages… I need more if I am going to make it 80 more days….

  18. I’m a big fan (like everyone) but would like to suggest a pronunciation guide at the end of the book for reference to the Irish words. Would love to know the correct way to pronounce as you go through the story. Thanks
