Synopsis from Goodreads
In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two mates find themselves on different paths, torn between their duty to the Wyr and the passion that binds them…
Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom.
In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear…
What I Thought
I suggest 18+ for sexy scenes
This book goes back to the continued story of Dragos and Pia, who starred in the first book of the seres. I’ve become used to meeting new characters each book, so while it was cool to get back and see how they were doing I also wanted to read about a new couple.
It was nice to see how the partnership between these two started to develop more though. Dragos is so used to getting his way and not being told what to do. Pia challenges this every chance she gets, especially with her trip to visit the Elves. I really did like seeing how much he cares for her and her safety too. But even Pia is not perfect and she’s also trying to learn how to work everything out and be a couple with him. Hearing a little about the baby was cute too and I’m so excited for him to be born.
The story was pretty good, although the whole plot that comes from a prophecy last book wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be. It was still interesting to learn about certain items and figure out what was happening and by who though but I guess I just wanted a bit more.
This book was still good and a great addition to the series. I’m excited for the next installment and the next couple!
