Zane and Lia find themselves travelling to the Carpathian mountains in search of a special diamond, known as Draumr, which has the power to enslave her kind, the Drákon. They soon find themselves in company with others of Amalia's kind - who may not be peaceful toward them. Zane's position as one of the few humans to know about the Drákon tribe means that his life may well be forfeit and Lia's window into the future shows her that things will not be good. For Zane, finding the diamond will bring him riches, but Lia knows that if Zane has it her future will not be good.
This book is a very easy read, even if the first book in the series hasn't been read. Amalia and Zane are both great characters with Zane particularly an amalgamation of the events of his difficult childhood and his own mental strength and resourcefulness. The romance side of this book takes a back seat against the actions, including travelling by coach into central Europe, meeting other dragons and finding the diamond, and in some ways the romance isn't very well fleshed out, but it's an enjoyable read and an interesting twist on the dragon legends.

This book is about the youngest daughter of the hero and heroine of the Smoke Thief. She is unable to TURN into smoke or Drakon, unlike her other siblings and they believe her to be powerless. However she has kept a fews secrets from them - such as she can tell the future through her dreams and knows from these there is a threat to her family in the future, she hears the song of the Draumr (Dream Stone) which is a diamond that can enslave the Drakon and has been missing for hundreds of years, and she is also destined to be with Zane the young rascal from the Smoke Thief now grown up into a master criminal and the eyes and ears of the Drakon in the outside world.
The rest of the Drakon start to hear the calling song of the dream stone and decide to send Zane to find and retrieve it for them, not informing him that the stone can control them!

This second book in the series is the story of Zane who we met in the first book as the street urchin whose life was saved by Rue, the smoke thief. Now Zane has grown up and I loved the wonderful man he has become. Shaped by his childhood and relationship with the drakon as the only human they trust, he is tough, hard as nails, competent, ruthless, but capable of great loyalty and in the end.....well, no spoilers. Then we have Lia, daughter of Kit and Rue, the tribe alphas, from the first book. Lia is a princess of the drakon but apparently with no gift or powers like her older sisters. Zane is sent on a dangerous quest by Kit and Rue and that quest is the story within this book. Innocent little Lia should have had no part in this quest, but Lia is not all that she seems to be which Zane finds out along the way. There is intrigue and danger and of course a beautifully written romance as the story unfolds.
I think I liked The Smoke Thief just a little bit better than this one, perhaps because there was more of the amazing descriptions of disappearing from human form into smoke and then, at times, into a dragon. Those segments of The Smoke Thief are so beautifully done and magical, and not as much a part of this story. But having just finished this book, it is a five star for me and I am awaiting the third book!
I liked Lia a lot too, she was a much stronger character then Rue was in the first book.
I still didnt appreciate the detailed sex scenes, just like in the first book, but in this book they werent quite as bad and drawn out. I prefer to use my own imagination when it comes to love, I dont need it spelled out for me.
There was some real good exciting parts in this book, very well written, so now Im excited to read the next in line "Queen of Dragons".
Don't start the first one if you are not willing to read the entire series..............worth every dime if you are up for fantasy that is breathtaking and holds you hostage and wanting more.
