Mercy is a Draman - half human half dragon - and a reporter to boot. She is investigating the "cleansing" of a number of Draman towns where everyone is killed.
Damon is a full-blood dragon, and an assassin, also investigating the death of a friend; but he has a mind-fix about the value of Dramen as second-class (or lower) dragons.

Their coming together is not easy; Damon's prejudice angers Mercy, and Mercy's skills amazes Damon - he just doesn't understand how Mercy has managed to master (what amount to be) dragon gifts. Their interaction is up and down, good and bad; but, whooo, they fall in love (even though Damon won't acknowledge it).

This is a page-turner of an adventure, though occasionally I wanted to slap Damon in the hope he got a bit of sense regarding Mercy. Trae, Mercy's half-brother, and his betrothed Destiny (from the 1st book "Destiny Kills") appear towards the end - in a very amusing scene - so it's not really necessary to read the first book first.

Good fun all round.
