Hey everyone! Today I have a review of Letters from the Dragon's Son by Tammy Lash!  This is the sequel to White Wolf and the Ash Princess, the review for which I also have a review HERE. Here's some more info on the book before we get started on the review itself!


Tammy lives in Michigan's Upper Peninsula near the shores of Lake Superior with her husband and three teen/adult children. Currently, they are working together on their "new" home just outside the Hiawatha National Forest she writes about in her stories. Tammy enjoys hiking, kayaking, beach wandering, "hunting" for birch bark, and spotting migizis. She is the author of White Wolf and the Ash Princess, Letters from the Dragon's Son, and the short story Eagle Eyes from the Descendants of White Wolf series.

Letters from the Dragon's Son is a delicious, fictional blend that is sure to please any reader. Historical, romance, adventure, faith-based, with a fairy-tale feel!

A father…
A son…
and the dragon they became.

One head: Malevolent, attired in barbs and spines, took pleasure in decimating the forested village.

Avery, formerly White Boar, wanders the forests seeking forgiveness from the people he sold into slavery, but is repentance payment enough?

Righteous, with two horns on each side, tried to calm the evil one’s violent ambition.

More servant than son, Jonathan Gudwyne, had been powerless to stop his father from taking the Men of the Forest into captivity. As a man, White Wolf reverses the damage he and his father caused by returning the Natives home. Jonathan gains honor and worship, but what does he do with the remains of his past? Justice has yet to be served to the dragon. Should Jonathan be the one who administers the sentence to his wandering father? To himself?

The two heads formed Brinsop, whose iron talons wrought chaos….

Can a man change? Can a broken family be made whole again? If one head is destroyed can the other survive?


While this one started out a bit slower than Book One did, I still found myself fairly quickly sucked into the story.  Lash again artfully weaves indigenous beliefs and lifestyles into the complex relationships between the "white man" and the tribes affected by their immigration, especially those around Izzy and Jonathan. The attention to detail involving her inclusion of PTSD is, again, commendable and very easy to relate to.  It's a great story full of heart, impactful ideas (often just delivered in a simple sentence or two...favorite style), and the characters are heartbreakingly relatable. I absolutely love these characters, and while I'm kind of disappointed that this is the end of the series, I very much enjoyed reading this book. If you enjoyed the first book, you'll definitely want to pick up this one as well.
