Blurb: Becoming a host for a parasitic dragon wasn’t part of the plan. Actually, there wasn’t really any plan to begin with, but when the dragon egg hatches, Ashe figures it’s time to come up with one.
Katsu’s plans are failing miserably. His vast medical knowledge isn’t helping Ashe’s dragon situation, he’s having problems staying detached, and the other mercenaries are concerned about their life-force being sucked dry and want Ashe to leave. Katsu is determined that if Ashe leaves, so will he. First, though, he has to make sure that his people aren’t killed in battle… something they seem determined to do.
Review: Ashe has a little problem, a baby dragon has become attached to him and it could kill him. Katsu is trying his best to help Ashe but his best isn’t enough.
Ashe and Katsu are back in this installment and they face even bigger difficulties than before. Ashe has somehow managed to get himself in trouble again. When the leader says he must leave to protect everyone else his lover, Katsu, declares he will leave too. There isn’t much world building in this book as it has been done in other books, but you get a very medieval feel from the book.
Ashe and Katsu’s relationship is very close but neither will say to the other that they love them. Even though it is obvious that they do. I really like the way these two interact and they are just perfect for each other. The story-line is cool and it doesn’t miss a beat. I love how we keep getting installments about these two that just work perfectly. I have to admit because I have read the other two books in this Dragon series it was easy for me to fall back into their relationship and how they treat each other. For someone who hasn’t read any of the previous books I think their relationship would confuse people. So I suggest that the previous books are read first.
I will recommend this to those who love fantasy, gruff men, cute elves, troublesome dragons and a good story.
