** spoiler alert ** Amalia Langford is the only daughter of Rue and Christoff Langford who cannot Turn. Although she lacks the ability to Turn, she does have some very interesting abilities that she keeps secret. One is predicting the future through dreams--and she runs away in order to help Zane locate the Draumr, the long-lost diamond with the power to enslave the drakon. She must locate the diamond and destroy it, because one future possibility her dreams show her is Zane enslaving her people and destroying her family.

This book was an interesting follow-up to the first of the series, this time following Zane, who was part of the first book, and Christoff and Rue's daughter Lia. The premise was good, but I felt like there was a lack of follow-through. Lia's disturbing dream premonitions are never addressed, and in fact Zane never comes close to being that person. Additionally, the fact that Lia's family will disapprove of her marriage is not resolved. The introduction of a new clan of drakons is interesting, with this clan apparently suffering the same lack of women who can Turn. Overall, an interesting book with some dangling loose threads.
