Series Discovery: The Pendragon Legacy.

Last week I searched for certain info on an author and for the life of me I still can't remember how I ended up on the website of Susan Kearney. In the end it doesn't matter for I was surprised by the discovery of a new series that stirred my interest like no other. It is about her new series titled: The Pendragon Legacy. It sounds like a futuristic paranormal series and I haven't got many of these on my shelves, though I really like to broaden my horizon :)

While I discovered more info I thought I'd give a shout out about this series and perhaps add another release/series to your TRP. Because, let's face it, we all know there is always room for just ONE other book, or in this case, three. *grin* Has anyone heard of this series already or even read the first one out there; LUCAN? I would love to hear your thoughts on this series or if you have read more from this author.

Healer and high priestess of her people, Lady Cael is fated to life without a mate. But a mysterious explorer named Lucan Rourke doesn’t know her secrets, and his touch makes her crave a future that her extraordinary birthright has forbidden her...

Lucan has just one mission on Pendragon: to find the mythical Holy Grail, Earth’s only hope for survival. His powerful attraction to Cael is a distraction he can’t afford, unless he convinces her to join forces with him. Yet working so closely together only heightens their passion...even when the terrifying truth of Cael’s heritage threatens to shatter Lucan’s every belief—and the galaxy itself.

Marisa's gift is the only way Rion can communicate with his people, enslaved by a powerful enemy. He knows that kidnapping her is wrong, but saving his planet is worth sparking the fiery clairvoyant's fury. Yet hotter-and more explosive-is the psychic bond growing between Marisa and Rion. Could their passion be the key to freeing Rion's people? Only if he and Marisa can discover how to channel their desire . . . before a vicious enemy destroys them all.

  1. I just started reading Lucan last night... and so far I'm really liking it. :)

  2. Eek...the desire to add the first in this series to my tbr is overwhelming..don't think I can fight it off. It is a losing battle ;) Thanks for the heads up! Futuristic paranormal always gets me!

  3. I just got Lucan!! Everyone is talking about this series and saying good things!! :)

  4. I read about this series and it sounds good. A lot of blogs are gonna be on her tour and giving copies away.A good way to see if you'll enjoy the books.

  5. Oh my, I saw this at Midnight Moon Cafe's place! The guy on the cover is hot... and the series does not sound that bad either. But I am very scared to add another series to my ever growing TBR pile right now... Scared... but what's another book... another series... OH my... I see the credit card running away from me!!! **running to catch it... come here damnit!!!***
    I love your way of sucking us in for the kill Leontine!!! =) Putting those men up like that... like they are to be bought... Oh I see the credit card!!!!
    I hope you had a great night!! And a wonderful tomorrow!

  6. Oh Lord, I'm already moving "funds" around so I can go out and buy this series... the covers are so pretty. Great Discovery!

  7. I just saw on Goodreads that Anna was reading the first book--which I must say sounds pretty good!!

    These covers are gorgeous!

  8. I got a mail from something I signed up for, I think it was writer's space, they mentioned this series so it is on my radar!
    And yes just like the others I like the covers!

  9. Now these are sure on my radar too, futuristic paranormal, yes please :D
    And I just love the covers.

  10. @Anna, you lucky girl, you already have it. Will be on the look out for your thoughts on it :)

    @Mandi, I had the same urge and I am weak, I just wanted/needed to get a taste from this author.

    @Blanche, I haven't heard anyone yet but the info alone piqued my curiousity!

    @Elain8, I think I missed the heads up on a blog tour, isn't that where the giveaway os for US and Canada only? I'll be checking it out, I always enjoy the posts/interviews the authors do on these blog tours ;D

    Yeah and it's not like we didn;t already had our daily dose of hawt man candy. In my world there is always room for more *grin*

    @smokinhotbooks, I am really glad The Book Depository Store has a worldwide free shipping policy, it leaves room for me to check out new-to-me authors like Susan Kearney :)

    @Barbara, I look forward to hear Anna about Lucan too!

    @Marissa, looks like this series is receiving quite the shout out, I think my writerspace e-mail got dumped in my spam folder again. I will check it later.

    @Blodeuedd, I had the same reaction when reading the synopsis from each book. Yes, please...love to get me some :D Covers like these are always my belgium chocolate covering the cake (story)

  11. Great find Leontine! I plan on checking this one out. I love it when I come across a series that's not already several books in. That a way I can stay current as the book publish. Thanks!

  12. I just lurve a new series. More books to add to my tbr list. This series looks fab. Thanks for sharing Leontine! Also thanks so much for adding my All Hallows Eve button, so nice of you :)

  13. @Donna, I can still remeber the frenzy of collecting all Dark-Hunter, Highlanders, McClouds et cetera. It cost me an arm and a leg but read one and wanted them all. After a time I felt I was up to par with what everyone else was reading...well guess again. I still have author who rock with series I discover via rec's from others. Finding out about an author with a series just starting is a blessing for me, TRP & CC ;)

    @book Chcik City, Your welcome, both for shout out Halloween as rec for series. I am looking forward to what you are going to bring in October. We in the Netherlands don't celebrate Halloween but love the atmosphere!

    @Stephanie, Hope you enjoy the series :)

  14. Hmmmm...I don't read much futuristic romance but these books do sound compelling. I might wait until I see some reviews first. The covers are definitely gorgeous and that helps.

    Thanks for the heads up on this series, Leontine!

    (((hugs))) VFG

  15. I also started reading Lucan last night. I enjoy paranormal romance as well as SF, but I've only found few "futuristics" worth the time. Lucan however has captured and kept my attention so far. He really has a terrific hard body!!
