Another great dragon kin book. Lots seem to happen and yet there were no big battles, or wars. Just preparation for the big one coming.

It has been about 2 years, in storyland, since we last saw Annwyl the Bloody and she has since had the demon twins. Talaith has also had her second daughter, though Izzy didn't even know she was pregnant as she has been out on patrol for 2 years learning to be a soldier.

The unlikely heroine of this episode is Keita, who has been assuming a guise of stupidity and uselessness. The better for her to gain the trust of her mother's, Queen Rhiannon, enemies, so she can extermiinate them.

Along comes Ragnor the Cunning, from the Northlands. He falls for the stupidity angle although not the charm, unlike all other males. He challenges Keita and he also intrigues her. He follows her and gradually realises all is not how it appears.

He decides he wants her for the next six or seven centuries but realises if he mentions that she will be running away very fast. He decides to keep her but not tell her that and it seems to work out just fine for him.

Meanwhile the war with the Irons and the Sovereigns grows ever closer.

Once again this author has provided some hilarious moments and a feeling like you really know these humans and dragons, normal things as well as extraordinary things are always happening but you don't feel rushed. Looking forward to the next instalment.

LOL! I need to read this series. Must finish the Pride one first though.

Sandra Yep, I like it. But start from the beginning, either ebook or pb. I started them when they were only available in ebook. Whichever name she writes under Shelly is always funny.
