With Rios happily mated and planning an entire future, Aqua can't help but feeling left out. The brother that was always been his chief playmate and best friend is going to leave him behind, which isn't at all acceptable. The obvious answer is to leave first, so Aqua packs a bag to go on an adventure. But this adventure isn't anything like his last one and the chances of him returning home alive dwindle every moment.
Aqua’s brother, Rios, found his mate and now he’s off every day with Nixie and Aqua is left with no one. He shouldn’t be jealous of Nixie because Rios is so happy, but he is. When Aqua is moping around the house one morning his Uncle Willy told him that he needed to make friends and he wasn’t going to meet any if he stayed at home moping. Aqua immediately packs a bag, turns into his water dragon form and heads off on an air current to seek adventure.
Aqua doesn’t know where he is when he realizes that he’s hungry. He stops in a desert to eat but he gets ready to leave he’s conked on the head. A family of fire salamanders – led by the oldest brother – ties him up thinking he’s a spy. Aqua tries to tell them he’s not but they don’t believe him. When he thinks everyone is gone he meets a silent member of the family. Ash is an albino salamander. He can’t create fire and can’t go out in the sun or he’ll burn. Ash explains that his sister Safara had dated a nearby dragon but when their older brother went to meet the dragon he had brought Safara back with him and they were then at war with the local dragons.
Aqua decides that the only way to work things out is to talk it over with the local dragons. He takes Ash with him and heads off to play peacemaker. Unfortunately, what he discovers is something he can’t fix jut by talking.
This was such an adorable story. I just loved it and would have given it 5 stars had it been a little longer.
Aqua was a good kid/dragon kit and had such a good heart. He just wanted to be loved and feel like he was a part of something. Yes, he had his brother and Uncle Willy but he needed more. Finding Ash and his family situation was a huge turning point in his life and it warmed my heart to see him so happy.
I don’t want to tell you too much about the story because the revelations are worth reading. Now I did put this under M/M but Aqua and Ash are young and the only thing they do is hold hands – just FYI.
As much as I want to get the stories of the other dragon kits from the first few books this was a wonderful interlude and definitely worth reading.
