** spoiler alert ** This is the 3rd of a series, where I didn't read the first two, (not in the library)... so I was playing catch up... Mayling is 'twin' of a long lived water sprite, consort to a banished demon prince (did they have sex before Gabriel claimed her? the clues were not clear, sometimes I thought yes, and sometimes I thought no)... and mate to Gabriel, wyvern of the Silver Dragons - cursed to not have a mate born, but as she sprung forth, she was not born, and therefore can break the curse... she can move into the shadows for safety...

Drake's brother Kostov, reuintes the black dragons and wants back into the fold (and it happens)... bad Fiat is struggling to be Red dragon wyvern, but loosing, and he is joining forces with Bastian - one who died, but resurrected and has more than just dragon powers... his mate also died, except at the end, she is alive - but unaware of who she was - reborn? amnesia? hmmmm

Mayling, from a previous book, has in her breast a shard of the 1st dragon's heart... there are 5 pieces, one held by each clan... the dragon shard allows her to shift to dragon - which is Gabriel's preference when making love to her... and she is learning to control it's influence at other times... she succeeds in uniting the 5 pieces - and the dragon heart finds her worthy, and a part of its spirit continues to live in her, and the heart splits again into 5 shards...

story ends with Aisling giving birth to twins... with Jim, Rene, & Nora in attendance... Bastian is free, and his mate is alive... fiat is imprisoned by the blue dragons because he killed 40 of them...

2nd reading... after reading the 1st two... things made much better sense... I like how the author took the stereotype of the dragon wyvern (strong, controlling, autocratic) and made Gabriel softer & more responsive to Mayling (as compared to Aisling & Drake)... Bastian's story is next? hmmmm
