In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two mates find themselves on different paths, torn between their duty to the Wyr and the passion that binds them…Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom.Goodreads
In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear…

Crystal L's Thoughts:
Raise your hand if you love Dragos! Cause I do! I do! When I found out Thea Harrison was going to write another book about Pia and Dragos I was like, 'Hell Yeah!', and then I was like, 'Oh No! What if it's not as good as the first one?!' Well, rest assured you chronic worriers, we have an excellent book on our hands. My favorite part about this book? HELLO - we FINALLY have our little white peanut dragon being born! Cause seriously, what woman wants to be pregnant that long? The nine months I carried my two kids was long enough. I think Harrison did an excellent job of continuing the series (which I read like a rabid Harrison crack addict), and I totally can't wait to see what she does next. I guess someone would like me to tell them what happened now, huh? Well, I'll tell you a little, so here goes.
There's still conflict between Dragos and the Elves in South Carolina. Pia is on a mission to try and mend some of those problems, but her trip south is quickly turning sour by her totally moody new bodyguards. She wants her old Sentinels back instead. This time she can't get what she wants though because Dragos needs them in New York with him to take their places in the Sentinel Games. Since Rune and Tiago left, Dragos has two spots to fill. To do that he's going to have thousands of Weres fighting each other to see who the seven top dogs are in the arena to get the jobs. The five remaining Sentinels have to prove they still deserve their place.
Pia does her best to straighten out her new bodyguards, but when she gets to the Elves she encounters even more problems. None of this drama is helping her deal with her separation anxiety from Dragos, and he's even more wound up about than she is. This book is so good people. You have to read it! I love the book. I love Thea Harrison. So it's a four and a half wine glass toast for Ms. Harrison and everyone who's read this series should run out and get this book!
