It's All Things Bookish....
Because Life is short and there is so much to read, read fast!
This book is absolutely amazing. If you enjoy a good paranormal fantasy then it's a must-read. The story is set in a world of dragons and Creators. It's full of mystery, action, and adventure. It revolves around one breeder and a flock of dragon shifters or warriors, as they are called sometimes. Their job is to fight Creators and keep them from enslaving Hisgeii.
The story starts when young breeder, Danu, and young shifters come off age. They will now enter society and do their duty. As a breeder, Danu must ensure the continuation of shifter's next generation. Although she is nervous about her role and what it entails, she has learned enough to deal with it. However, councilman Calmus has a surprise for her, at the last minute he changes the rules of the game. He pronounces her as their breeder queen and the one who would marry her would become king. That has never happened before. It's bound to ruffle some feathers and cause chaos in this small community. As Danu tries to make up her mind about her next step she finds out things that she probably shouldn't have. In order to make the right decision, she would now lose somethings that are precious to her. No matter what happens next, one thing is for sure, Danu has the best interest of her people at heart and she would do anything to protect them and ensure their survival.
Things get more complicated when the creators come looking for them. It turns out that there is a lot which they don't know about themselves as well as their worst enemies. Divided by castes, will these people be able to stand against an enemy so powerful that even their best warriors don't stand a chance against them... unless there is another way to defeat this time old foe? One thing is for sure, it's going to get far more complicated than it ever was, but maybe this is their chance to reclaim their true identities and finally be able to live in peace.
This story made me imagine primitive Roman society. The story is quite engaging and characters are all well-developed. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend to all fans of dragon-shifters, this one is definitely an original and interesting take on dragons, where they came from, and how they live.
P.S. Can I just say that the book cover is absolutely gorgeous and goes well with the story?
