I love the Dragon Kin series and laugh at loud at these books they are full of action great one liners and put downs and a hea at the end so for me always a great read and this one was another winner, I think G A Aiken was clever to not give this book too much romance, we knew at some point Izzy and Eibhear were going to get there HEA so I think if this book had, had loads of build up to that point readers would of got bored so for me thumbs up for the way the pair just seem to get their with each other.
This one starts off 10 years after the last book ended so Talan, Talwyn and Rhi are all teenagers and starting to realise their powers and strengths and this also sets up the future for their books (fingers crossed) later down the line and I can't wait!. They were scary and laugh out loud funny as kids and look to be even more as adults. all the characters are here, so we get to catch up with them including a few new ones.
We all knew Izzy and Eibhear were going to end up together since she first pulled his hair way back in book 2 of the series but after the two falling out at the end of the last book and Eibhear losing his friend in the last battle he went off to fight and is one changed dragon, bigger stronger and a better fighter than his brothers as he has become a Mi-Runach, the group of elite dragons who go and fight the wars no others want to fight. He still has his ever famous blue hair, and his love of books. He's ordered to go home and along the way he vists his sister and she tells him to go to the location where Izzy and her troops are currently fighting ogers and get her home where she is needed. He does and even after not seeing Izzy for 10 years, they start straight away bickering and pocking at each other.
Eibhear always tried to keep Izzy at arms length as he thought she was like a neice to him so even though he had feelings for her and knew she felt the same he wouldnt act on them, but 10 years and a changed dragon later and Eibhear wants Izzy they still annoy each other its just now they are having sex too!
There is a lot going on here for the next books the main thing being, the twins Talan and Talwyn now 18 years old and Rhianwen who has amazing powers she cant control. They still have the connection between the three of them and the twins are constantly watching Rhi to protect her from her magic, The only person that can help Rhi is her grandmother, who kicked out Izzy and Rhi's mum when she was 16 and pregnant so Talaith and Izzy hate her. This is another big focus in the book, Izzy and Eibhear must travel into the dangerous Desert Lands to gain a meeting with the witch and see if she can be trusted to train Rhi to handle her powers beforew she hurts someone she cares about (like the twins).
As always, the whole family fight constantly, they hurl fists and insults at each other while happily killing people and farm animals if they get a bit hungry, I love the way they are when they are all in the same room and I will be the 1st in line for the next book who ever it is about like all the books in this series you are never let down if you like to laugh out loud and get a great story with loads of action and a drop of romance this is the series for you start at book one to get the full enjoyment and keep going I know you wont be let down!
