One of my favourite series'
14 February 2018
Absolutely loved this book, and love this series. I love that while we have dragon shifters, the world they live in is unique and has been artistically created. This is unlike any other shifter novel I have read - and that is so refreshing. Add the Phaetyn to the mix, and their balance between light and dark with the Drae, as well as humans and you have a unique and interesting story already.
I love how Ryn has been developed and portrayed in this book. Broken and healing from the events in book 1, she is cautious and questions everyone's motives. She has trouble trusting herself and her instincts after the betrayal with Tyr in book 1 as well. I do love that she grows in this, and slowly learns to trust as people prove themselves to her - its not freely given! And lets not forget her newfound obsession with shiny objects - and how her Phaetyn side still questions this attraction in the back of her mind - she's not blind to it. Loved this - so well done!
Tyrrick redeems himself in this book. He is struggling with how to act now he's not under the blood oath, and the habits of 100yrs if slavery are not easy to break, but he is trying. He goes through a lot in this book as well - pain, near death, poison, more poisoning, and so on. Ryn calls him out on his selective information giving too - lying/deception by omission, and he then tries to break that habit and open up to her. As Dyter also points out to Ryn, he was 9yrs old when he was enslaved - he wouldn't have had a lot of knowledge of the ways of the Drae so only has his instincts to act on. Loved Dyter as a more involved character in this book too.
In short, if you haven't started this series already- why not?! Can't wait for book 3 to come out!
