In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two mates find themselves on different paths, torn between their duty to the Wyr and the passion that binds them…
Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom.
In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear…
Now that Dragos has lost two of his sentinels, he needs to replace them. To do so, he stages the Sentinel Games, so the public can see the strength of the Wyr who will be guarding and governing them. While he works on that, Pia goes to visit the Elves to smooth over rough waters and learn more about her mother.
While Pia is away, she and Dragos plan to keep in touch through their dreams. Shortly after Pia crosses over into the Other land, Dragos loses touch with her. He freaks out and makes his way to her…which turns out to be a good thing because someone has put a large number of the elves under thrall. They’re acting like zombies and Pia is in very real danger.
Harrison has created such an interesting, three-dimensional world, I felt like I was there with Pia and Dragos. I was excited to read another book from their POV. This one is action packed from beginning to end. Though there were some slow parts, I was fully entrenched in the story from page one. I didn’t want it to end, but I had to hurry up and finish so I could get the rest of the story.
