Synopsis from Goodreads:

In a time of false peace, the dead rise as soldiers for the Warloc’s scheme. For thousands of years he has stood ready for the final battle. Though the witch and her cursed Elvin have destroyed his physical body, now with his protégé, he has honed a new way to wage war.

Shunned by her own people and weary-hearted from centuries of lost loves, Elvin warrior Mirhana scours the land to silence the undead. Her heart has turned as cold as the sword she wields, until a prince seeks her aid.

Never has Prince Landon met a woman like Mirhana. Both beautiful and deadly, she haunts his dreams. The battle at hand becomes more enchanting than fighting to remain true to his unseen betrothed.

When a traitor emerges, new alliances are tested and the only remaining hope is to follow the prophecy and find the ... Son of Dragons.

My Review:

What a novel! I felt like I’d walked into a fantasy right from the first page. Cooper creates this vivid world in a seamlessly captivating manner. Her descriptions paint it in your mind’s eye. As a reader you can feel the shifting of dark and light in the author’s writing. It heightens the sense of magic and surrealism that gives her readers a break from the monotony of the everyday. The characters in this novel are on the adventure of a lifetime, even if it is a dangerous one. I could feel the excitement and adrenaline. The fast pace of the story makes time fly by. I read it in a single sitting without realising it. I definitely couldn’t put this one down.

The characters in this novel lead us down a great many roads with some definite plot twists to keep you on your toes. Rather than simply having a main character or a main couple, there is a core group of characters that carries this story forward. Each is individually developed, but the group is also developed dynamically. It’s quite an intriguing balance that lets you get to know everyone in many different ways. Their interactions with one another not only let you get to know them, but also further the story itself.

Overall, this was a fantastic novel. Cooper’s writing is creative yet seamless. This novel definitely falls into the category of escape from the everyday. I’d highly recommend it to anyone who wants to escape from reality within the pages of a book, with some romance thrown in the mix.
