Can magic save them before it’s too late….
After the defeat of the Lowland Army, King Seran is still at large, and Torsere needs the Elves’ protection more than ever. Nykin returns to his duty as a dragon rider and accompanies Ryneq to the Elven city of Alel to witness the joining of their two realms through marriage.
As the wedding approaches, the dragons sense a malevolent presence lurking at Alel’s borders. Nykin and Fimor take to the skies to patrol the magical city, but as the evil grows more potent, the enchanted boundary protecting Alel grows weaker.
Working alongside the elven guard, Nykin and Ryneq once again ride headfirst into danger as they struggle to protect Torsere from Seran’s thirst for revenge.
I am always aware that authors are stuck between a rock and a hard place when they come to write book two of a trilogy. It’s neither a beginning or an end. I gave the beginning five stars, and even with knowing this was book two and inherently problematic because of that, I was still heading towards the five star direction before the last chapter.
Nykin is officially King Ryneq’s consort. They have the problem of the Elven wedding and the baddy rearing its ugly head. (I don’t rehash the plot in my reviews – it’s hot men riding dragons, read it.)
Everything’s going to plot and plan and then it stopped. If I had months to wait for book three I’d be annoyed, but I don’t think this will be the case.
What I would have liked is some more character development. Relationship wise they seem to be in the same place in book two as they were at the end of book one, with a little more sex, but having said that I’m still reaching out with grabby hands for book three.
