I was raised for battle. And as the first daughter of a warrior family, I've earned my reputation the hard way. Yet now I fight alongside uncivilized male Northland dragons who think a female is only good for breeding and waiting back home in the cave. But it's the foolish and foolhardy who would try to stop me, Rhona the Fearless, from doing what I do best—destroying the enemies of my kind.
So the smartest thing wily barbarian Vigholf the Abhorrent can do for me is stay out of my way as we risk all on a deadly mission in enemy territory. I don't care if he's fascinated by me, even though he is as attractive as he is resourceful. He's having far too much fun putting me in difficult situations and testing my sense of duty to the limit. And I'm going to enjoy challenging his insufferable confidence, outwitting his schemes, and making him surrender in the wildest ways. . .
A great addition to the Dragon Kin series from G.A.Aiken. I adore the entire clan. But a small warning - there are some events in the book that might be confusing if you haven't read the previous books in the series. The entire story arc is sometimes difficult to follow even if you read the books.
I love both Rhona and Vigholf. Rhona never really enjoyed war (unlike 90% of her family), but she's a great soldier and that stupid Lightning that says otherwise clearly has no idea what he's talking about. Vigholf for his part, knows that the female can take care of herself, but his instincts tell him he's the one who should protect. Of course that's the reason they spent the last five years arguing. :-)
We get to see a lot of characters from the previous books. Mostly the royals, and of course Anwyl the Bloody (I love that woman). It's nice seeing them again (except for Keita, that dragon is so bloody annoying).And it's nice that there's finally peace in the kingdom. I wasn't so happy to discover that most of the couples spent years apart (especially poor Gwanvael)
I'm now even more curious as to what will happen with Izzy and Eibenhar. I hope they get their book soon.
