DANICA SHARDAE IS an avian shapeshifter, and the golden hawk’s form in which she takes to the sky is as natural to her as the human one that graces her on land. The only thing more familiar to her is war: It has raged between her people and the serpiente for so long, no one can remember how the fighting began. As heir to the avian throne, she’ll do anything in her power to stop this war—even accept Zane Cobriana, the terrifying leader of her kind’s greatest enemy, as her pair bond and make the two royal families one.
Trust. It is all Zane asks of Danica—and all they ask of their people—but it may be more than she can give.

One of my staple favorites
I absolutely love, love, love this series. It’s so magical and raw, the characters development flows perfectly. There’s no rush in this story, the author lays out the plot beautifully and does a great job of setting the picture in your mind. I get a rush from every interaction between the two main characters. The second book is another great installment and also my favorite! I come back and read these two (and the others as well) at least once a year! I’m in love with this world and I wish there was more stories to continue it!
I love this book. I haven't bought it on ibooks because I think it's too much money for just one book. I have read it and it is amazing
Hawksong Soars into our hearts!
The character development was amazing to every detail. When you looked at the two pasts each had a well developed past. The story was an amazing one. I still have not read a book like this one anywhere else. I have read this series over and over, still love it.
Zane and Danica had me captivated from the start! Amazing book to read!!
