I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
After saving her family and a dragon hatchling from the King, Nadine returns to Lord Logan’s lands with the rest of her family. However, the King is coming for both her and Lady Christine so Nadine is far from safe. In order to keep everyone she loves safe, she is going to have to prepare to fight. With the help of the dragons, her family, female warriors, a Friar, and a Dragon Whisperer, Nadine begins to train for the fight that is sure to come. Meanwhile, the King begins to make his move.
I actually enjoyed this book even more than I enjoyed the first one! I loved seeing the various characters as they prepared to do their own missions. Also, Muquin’s growth since we first met her in book one was so nice to see! Her perspective was one of my favorites. I also really liked the POVs of Lord Logan and Captain Julian as they are usually rather amusing. I will say that I thought that a particular battle in the middle of the book had a bit of an abrupt ending. Also, as much as I admire Nadine for her spirit and courage, I did feel like she was a bit immature in this book which is understandable as she is young and under a lot of stress. However, I loved the dragons the most and I’m hoping to hear more from them in the next book! I’m really looking forward to seeing the characters go against the King in the next book; they’ve grown a lot and it is definitely time for this King to go!
If you’re a YA Christian reader looking for a medieval fantasy or dragons, check this book out (or start at book 1 if you haven’t already read it!)
