Cop-turned-bounty-hunter Gabe Dominguez is hired to capture firestarter Nat Wyatt. For a dragon-shifter like Gabe, apprehending Nat is easy, but transporting him involves more time, energy, and blood loss than he envisioned. An attack from a band of fairies, an out-of-control forest fire, and a showdown at an auction don’t faze Gabe, but Nat’s innocence might stop him entirely.
Since discovering his abilities, Nat’s lost a best friend, a boyfriend, and trust in his brother. Only his love of concerts and card games get him through life without a home. Rumors of the Judge, a giant dragon who once destroyed half of Canada avenging those he loved, provide Nat with hope of vindication. When Nat discovers his captor is the Judge, he thinks he’s finally caught a break. Through late-night conversations and a shared love of music, Nat tries to convince Gabe he’s not guilty.
Can Gabe continue his cutthroat lifestyle, or will he run away with his dragon hoard like he’s always longed to do? Can Nat escape his legacy, or will his be another spark snuffed out by people who don’t understand? The Oracle, the most powerful wizard in Canada, might be the only one who can provide answers.
This was a really entertaining read. Nat and Gabe were awesome characters. I really felt for Nat and all of his trouble. Nat has a really hard life. He is constantly hunted because of who he is, and he doesn’t really get any peace. Blamed for things he didn’t do he’s just trying to survive. Gabe just wants to do his job. He’s at war with himself between his head and his heart. He’s trying to move beyond his past, but he can’t really let it go. The author did a really excellent job crafting this story. You really felt the turmoil and struggle throughout the book. Gabe was the perfect counterpart to Nat. The characters were easy to connect with and I found myself rooting for Nat and Gabe to get past everything and get together.
