17k / 18+, explicit language and sexual situations / Cliffhanger 

My Review:

Donovan picks this one up right where part 2 left off and takes off with a vengeance. The world that she’s been developing throughout this series becomes even more clear with the look at the Lochguard side of things. This shift in perspective gives readers a welcome addition to dragonshifter culture while also keeping us completely immersed in this intricately crafted world. At the same time, Donovan builds suspense and danger throughout, keeping me on my toes.

Ara vs her dragon is pricelessly comical. Seeing them get to know one another again is enlightening both as to who Ara is on the inside & what it means to have a dragon half. The intimate look at Finn & Ara’s relationship really puts the mate bond (and the frenzy) in perspective for readers. The heat in their relationship really ramps up as they come closer and closer to being a couple.

My final thoughts? Holy *&#$ing cliffhanger batman! The suspense in this serial (and the series as a whole) has reached a crescendo here. Donovan has set us up for the ultimate 4th instalment, & I, for one, definitely can’t wait!
