Though Luke Dryden, cryptozoologist, is welcomed back to the castle at the tip of a blade, an old romance ignites. Until a lingering illness acquired in a secret biotechnology facility takes a turn for the worse – all while disaster circles. To help defend a lady and her dragon, he must attempt a risky cure.

I adored Natalia and Luke’s story
Every time I read a book in this series, my love of words wants to run away with my review: the bigger the word the more I NEED to use it to explain how much I loved reading this story. I feel the need to hunt out words that reflect the elegance we expect of the time and also those having the dramatic impact of the adventure I’ve just been taken on. So please forgive me if this sounds like so much pretentious folderol. I did try to rein it in. The things I like about this book are the same things I’ve liked about everything I’ve read in this series. A dashing yet vulnerable hero, paired with an endearing spitfire of a heroine. Medical marvels taken from the controversial headlines of current research, blended with myth and legend from our deepest history. And all of this happens in a place and time where this mixture of past and future shouldn’t make sense together yet does. It is so easy to see the author’s great love of the science she manipulates for our benefit. She makes it accessible to those of us who aren’t technically minded, making the seemingly impossible feel perfectly commonplace. I adored Natalia and Luke’s story and I hope to see them again in future books. Zia too.
I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
