Dragons annihilated civilization some ten generations ago. A few Crossbreeds, humans born with dragon-like characteristics, now lead opposing tribes who still battle for dwindling resources.
Rhone’s wings have been stripped from his body, his family killed, and his hopes of leading the Mountain people away from the constant threat of marauders destroyed.
Ketta’s life has been full of pain and anguish. Her brother rules her and the Lax tribe with a bloody fist. Tired of the violence, Ketta takes a stand and rescues Rhone from the brink of execution.
Armed with knowledge from Ketta’s somewhat addled grandfather, the unlikely pair embarks on a quest to heal Rhone’s wings. Along the way, the couple struggles to find the truth beneath hatred and lies. Desire and a mutual enemy bring them together; mistrust and secrets tear them apart. These lifelong foes will have to fly high above their differences to defeat a deadly dragon and save what’s left of both their tribes.
I absolutely love the whole idea of this story! That the end of days is brought about by dragons and from that, Crossbreeds are made when the humans come into contact with something left behind by the dragons. It's not something I've read before and I'm happy to say that I enjoyed it quite a bit. I've read a few other books by this author so I knew it would be good but I didn't know how good until I started reading it. :)
For a first book in a series and a short one at that, it's written very well. There isn't too much information thrown at you but you still get the needed facts about their history and the world building is done very well. I loved the characters, especially Arwin, the grandfather. He was definitely a fun character. Ketta and Rhone were good characters too though I did feel that their relationship was a little too rushed for my taste with everything that they went through and the whole rivals thing made it too fast too. But it didn't make the story any less enjoyable, just a bit unbelievable.
Overall, this is a fun, refreshing and very enjoyable read! It has enough action and adventure to keep you turning the pages and great characters and dialogue that pull you right into the book. I will definitely keep up with the series, can't wait to see where she takes it, and I recommend this book to all of my PNR fan friends. It's one of those you really don't want to miss!!!
