The review -- Spoiler alert,
if you haven't read the other 3 books, you might want to skip this review.
This is book 4 in the series, and so far, the last book. Will there be more? I hope so, because I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. In this book, we get to the last of the 4 dragons, and now, the only one not mated - Tahr. He feels he will never find his dragon mate, since it was his uncle who set events in motion that started the curse to begin with.
Now one common thread that goes through all the books is the humans who serve the dragons. Now there's an interesting concept that the author has come up with. They are brought into the dragon's realm as children, from earth, because they are very sick to the point of dying. Bringing them into the dragon's realm heals them and takes their voice. They are raised in the dragon's castle and serve him.
But they are servants only, until this book. When one of them aspires to be more than just a servant. She wants to be a dragon. And thus we have our book. It's a wonderful finish to the series, with an awesome ending. There will be surprises for you in this book too. This one is almost the best of the 4, as it has some wonderful moments. But you will want to read the other 3, as they all build upon the other.
If I tell you any more, I'll give too much away. Suffice it to say, this series is not to be missed if you are a fan of paranormal romance.
