There is nothing in the universe the cursed dragon, Falcyn, hates more than humanity . . . and in particular, Greek humans. In a war he wanted no part of, they systematically destroyed everything he'd ever cared for. Now he lies in seclusion, away from the world and waits for the day when evolution will finally rid him of the human vermin.
Medea was born the granddaughter of the Greek god Apollo, and among the first of his people that he cursed to die. But she will not let anyone rule her life. Not even her notorious grandfather. And when Apollo sends a new plague to destroy what remains of her people, she refuses to standby and watch him take everything she loves from her again.
This time, she knows of a secret weapon that can stop the ancient god and his army of demons. Once and for all. However, said device is in the hands of a dragon who wants nothing to do with politics, the gods, humanity, demons or Greek Apollites. And especially not her. He is the immovable object.
My enemy's enemy . . .
When Apollo makes a strategic move that backfires, he forces Falcyn back into play. Now Medea either has the weapon she needs to save her people, or she's unleashed total Armageddon. If she can't find some way to control the dragon before it's too late, Falcyn will be an even worse plague on the world than the one Apollo has set loose. But how can anyone control a demonic dragon whose sole birthright is total destruction?
Oh, wow, I really enjoyed reading this book! Medea has been a part of this series since One Silent Night, and Falcyn is just a little been newer, at least, in playing even a minor role in the series! So great to watch them come together!
These two have a lot to do and a lot of face! Given that her father's people are dying, she needs Falcyn's help. Since he doesn't like humans, this is a challenge! And then, things go weird and they have a difficult journey just to get home. But that lets them really get to know one another!
This is a book where we learn another big piece of this world! That there were 7 original powers, 3 good, 3 bad, and then the 7th, in the middle, who is Falcyn's mom. And why Falcyn's egg is so important. Oh, and how Blaise is related, given that he's a mandrake-that he's Falcyn's grandson!
Really enjoyed them beating the bad guys in this fight. Things are far from over. It was a really awesome, tense stand off, and I really enjoyed that! The bit about Mordred being different then Morgen's other kids, that's important, and I can't wait to find out how!
Yeah, such a great book, and I can't wait for Battle Born, since we got a huge revelation in this book that she's still alive! So excited!
