Alek and his friends are awoken after years trapped in ice. Talia the scientist who was there when he awoke is instantly smitten. After a few attempts at being the lord of winter Alek starts a relationship with Talia . He and his friends enjoy living in this century . This was a fun book to read and the new dragons seem to be very exciting. I love how all terry’s characters go through some type of soul redemption in the face of the love of a mate. I am also excited to see which one of his friends gets their mate next .
