From the Inside Flap
The first in an enthralling new mini-series of novellas from the #1 bestselling authors of the House of Night, Dragon's Oath tells the story behind the House of Night's formidable fencing instructor - the love that will transform him, and the promise that will haunt himWith almost 12 million books in print, the House of Night is an international publishing phenomenon that shows no sign of stopping! Now, for the first time, the Cast duo will share the back stories of some of the House of Night's most crucial--and mysterious--characters. And it all begins with Dragon's Oath. Before Zoey is Marked and arrives at the House of Night... before she rises in power to confront utter darkness, and the House of Night is divided... there's Dragon, and the dark choice that won't let him go. Long before he's a professor at the House of Night with Zoey and the gang, in the early 19th century, Bryan Lankford is a troublesome, yet talented human teen. He thinks he can get away with anything... until his father, a British nobleman, has finally had enough, and banishes him to America. When Bryan is Marked on the docks and given the choice between the London House of Night and the dragon-prowed ship to America, he chooses the Dragon - and a new fate. In 1830's St. Louis, the Gateway to the West, Dragon Lankford becomes a Sword Master, and soon realizes there are dangerous challenges - and beautiful perks. Like Anastasia, the captivating young Professor of Spells and Rituals at the Tower Grove House of Night, who really should have nothing to do with a fledgling... But when a dark power threatens, Dragon is caught in its focus. Though his uncanny fighting skills make him a powerful fledgling, is he strong enough to ward off this new darkness, while protecting Anastasia as well? Will his choices save her--or destroy them all? Illustrations by Kim Doner.

I have to admit that I think the novella is actually better than the several latest HON books. The pace, the atmosphere and the style of writing are much more alike to the first few HoNs and I'm pretty sure everyone will agree with me that the reason we love the series is because of the first few books. Anyway, the novella is well-written and really has the content in it. I was hooked by it. It really explains why Dragon acts the way he does in present day. Though I can understand why the book is mainly focused on the interaction between Anastasia and Dragon (the book is named 'Dragon's Oath'...), I'd hope to read more about what happened to Dragon after he was Marked and study in HoN.
Nevertheless, this book is a good read and if you're a fan of HoN like me, I highly recommend you to have it in your collection:)
I believe it is a must read if you are planning to buy Destined, as it gives reasons for actions, that may be taken in the next book, which will probably not be understood if Dragon's Oath isn't read beforehand.
Even if you have not read the other HoN novels i believe this book would be a good way to start them off.
