Ashen NordornQueen and Gaurin NordornKing are enjoying peace at last, after the defeat of The Great Foulness, a mighty ice dragon. Their infant son has been crowned Bjauden NordornPrince, and though the land still has a lot of healing to do, things are looking on the bright side at last. Unfortunately, things are about to take a huge turn for the worse. When Ashen discovers a mysterious letter in the false bottom of one of her gifts, she realizes that the assault of the Ice Dragons is not over. According to legend, only the Dragon Blade, which was forged from the scales of the Mother Ice Dragon's mate when he was killed, can subdue her, and until she is subdued, she will continue to produce offspring that will attack the lands of ice and snow. Can Gaurin defeat the mother Ice Dragon without the Dragon Blade? Can Ashen get to her husband in time to give him the map to the Dragon Blade and the Mother Ice Dragon's lair before it is too late? And can their friends defeat a new ancient evil that threatens the lands while Ashen and Gaurin are away?


Dragon Blade is an unbelievable book. Prophecies and Ancient legends, love, magic, hope, and the strength and courage to attempt the unthinkable are interwoven throughout the story to make it a huge success. The imagery of the piece is unbelievable, making you not only see everything that is happening but feel it too. Fantasy, mystery, and romance readers will all love this book because it is written in such a way that even if you are a romance reader who dislikes Fantasy, or vice versa, you will still love the book. Norton and Miller have done a wonderful job creating this masterpiece.
