Publisher Description

An elite forces officer with a dreadful reputation. 

A bookish paleontologist with a love for mysteries.

An ancient stronghold full of secrets that will take both of them to unearth.


Professor Lilah Zirkander (yes, she’s related to the famous pilot, and no, she can’t get him to autograph your undergarments) is looking forward to a summer in the paleontology lab, researching and cataloging new fossils. But that summer takes an unexpected turn when the king sends her into the Ice Blades to a secret mine where ancient dragon bones have been discovered. Rumor has it that they’re cursed and dangerous, but Lilah is more concerned about dealing with the outpost commander, a fierce officer with the temperament of a crabby badger.


As punishment for irking the king, Colonel Vann Therrik is overseeing the hardened criminals working in the remote Magroth Crystal Mines. He would like a chance to redeem himself—and escape the loathsome duty station—but nothing is going his way. Cursed fossils have delayed production, miners are trying to escape, and now a scientist has shown up, making demands on his time. Worse, she’s the cousin of his nemesis General Zirkander. As if one Zirkander in his world wasn’t bad enough. 


Investigating the fossils leads Lilah and Vann into the depths of Magroth Mountain where centuries-old secrets lurk, and a long-forgotten threat stalks the passages. To have any chance at survival, they’ll have to work together and perhaps learn that neither is what the other expected. 


Shattered Past is a stand-alone novel set in the author’s Dragon Blood world.

Shattered Past

As usual Lindsay Buroker's tale is satisfying on many levels. Immersion in the story is easy and the characters realistic. It was enjoyable meeting familiar individuals as well as new. I read this book in less than a day. It is just as well that Lindsay is a prolific writer!

Four and a half stars

This book appears to be the conclusion of the Dragon Blood series. It mainly concerns Colonel Therrik, who has appeared in several of the earlier stories. Therrik is still stuck on an unwanted assignment, in charge of the prison mine in the Ice Blade mountains. Dragon bones are discovered while trying to excavate a new mine entrance. The powers that be decide to send a Palaeontologist to investigate the remains and to Therrik's dismay, this is an attractive female but undeniablely a relative to his nemesis Ridge.

This series is a roaring good read. Can’t wait for the next installment.
In this book we finally get an explanation of the colonel’s anger issues, a look at the reasons behind the fall of the sorcerer race and a lovely cameo from the dragon ‘god’.
I can’t help wishing that at least one of the dragon wolves had survived: perhaps in a “nature finds a way” puppy?
