Everything changes in Silesia when Sahara’s prison ship crash lands, leaving her as its only survivor. She is found and saved by Jared, who brings her to his city. Having a tragic past, Sahara has a difficult time becoming part of life in Albadir, connecting only with Jared, whose past is equally torn. Together they share a connection that neither of them understands, but is the only thing that allows them to survive as they battle against the power-hungry Dragon Lords bent on their destruction. This fast-paced escapade blends together a torrent of betrayal, cunning, and romance as the fate of Silesia is decided.
I enjoyed reading such a refreshing story, so different from the usual fantasy adventure. I admired Sahara’s fiery spirit, bravery, and determination, which provided a nice dramatic foil with the more level-headed Jared’s contrasting characteristics. The story held enough suspense to keep the reader interested, without needing constant action to make it enthralling. There were some improbabilities in the plot, but overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. I await the second book with curiosity.
