Rate this book
Grand Summoner Dre’Kariston D’Vaire understands firsthand the brutal reality of war. Barely surviving a gruesome battle, he is one of the few remaining warlocks. After recovering from his wounds, he returns to the castle of his birth only to find his entire race annihilated. For centuries he disguises his power and appearance, refusing to be another victim. When he reunites with his twin, his life changes from barren to beautiful. For years he follows his brother’s example of scrying for his mate, but it is not until they join their power that Fate answers, leading him to Court Ethelin.

Prince Somerly Ethelindraconis is stunned as he races to an appointment and runs into a crowned sorcerer standing on his father’s land. His only parent hates magickind and keeps them far from home, but Somerly cannot deny the attractive man his name and number. King Ethelin has his son’s life planned out for him, and Somerly is willing to sacrifice his freedom to help his court—until he falls for Dre’Kariston. He is soon caught between the promises he’s made and what his heart desires. There’s no way to please everyone, and Somerly finds himself teetering on a precipice that forces him to decide where his future lies.

With infinite paths twisting ahead, Dre’Kariston and Somerly must follow the truth in their hearts to make the right choices if they wish to forge an enduring love. Fate brought them together, but will they run out of chances before it’s too late to save their matebond?

Grand Summoner Dre’Kariston D’Vaire with the help of his twin finds out a name for his mate and where he is. On learning they have to travel to Court Ethelin and Prince Somerly. But alas this will not be an easy road for Dre’Kariston. With his familiar, Derwin so angry all the time, a dragon king who is an ass and only looking out for himself not to mention his mate has secrets that when revealed could tear the two apart it was a wonder that Dre’Kariston was sane as I would have been extremely angry at the way Somerly treated him.

I loved this story so much. There was drama, heartache, love and the support of the D’Vaire clan with every step of the story. The search still continues for a way to make Carvallius and his daughter (when they find her) pay for their crimes as well as new members that arrive and one is a surprise I never saw coming.

It’s best to read these amazing stories in order as they are connected and pick up where the last book leaves off so to speak. I love immersing myself in the D’Vaire series with it’s wide range of characters, attitudes, mystery, suspense and adventure.

Simply a brilliantly written story that holds your attention from start to finish with every book.

Fantastic addition as always and highly recommended. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

One thing I enjoy about this author is that she doesn't use the same "formula" for all her books - it'a amazingly refreshing and this book was no exception. While most of them can be read as a standalone, you'll get the most benefit out of reading them all in order. Her MCs are unique and they all go through their own journeys to find their happiness. This book continued to expand the incredible D'Vaire world while placing the focus on the struggles felt by the two MCs. I can't begin to describe the amount of love I have for these books and I can't wait to read the next one!

Love these characters

I liked both MC'S .... I also liked the new family members that were introduced as well... The only thing that was confusing that was not really explained is why Derwin was the way he was... He was mean thru out this book and previous books but in the end it was really not explained why?? Other than that good read... Off to book 11

Seriously, so many questions I had answered!! The stories of Alexander and his 2 brothers, Worth & Somerly, the resurrection of T’Eirick & Saura, the story of Somerly’s awakening to who he was related to, and Dre’Karston’s journey...so many stories intertwined & completed with humor and love. On to the next book!!

Another great one

I love that D'Vaire is turning into this wonderfully interconnected family. Don't feel like I can say much without spoilers but love all the new characters we gained in this book. Lucian rocked

While enjoyable, what ultimately brought this book down a bit was Somerly. He was a just a bit too clueless for me. I understand that he was sheltered all his life by his father, but he showed absolutely no initiative to know more about the world that he lived in. Then there was Derwin. I’m glad we got some sort of explanation for him being the way that he was but I’m not sure I totally buy into his actions toward the end of the book. Overall the book was enjoyable and I am looking forward to the next one.

When Dra' Kaeden and Dre’Kariston D'Vaire scry for Dre'Kariston's mate, they find that he's in Europe which is under Consillium law. At Court Ethelin. King Aleksander refuses to allow them to travel alone to his father's court and as a group they travel to king Brion's land. Where they are turned away.
Dre meets his mate despite Brion. Somerly is young and sweet. But there are a few things he neglects to tell his new mate. One, that he's crown prince. And two, that he's engaged to marry a princess from another court.
This book is quite packed with action and emotion. At it's end, Aleksander has two new brothers, Dre'Kariston embraces the dark losing his angry familiar in the process, and the Grand Summoner gets his well earned HEA. Now Kingley needs to get moving on Aleksander.
