The seductive and dangerous magic of dragons returns in the follow-up to last year's Dragonborn. Gifted storyteller Lee deftly unfolds her tale by having the chapters alternate between past and present events. Emotions run deep for these psychologically scarred protagonists, and the world they face is unforgiving. Leave it to Lee to create a story so darkly intense and so highly compelling!
Sabina's fate as a dragonmaid was sealed when she was 10 years old. Hatred for her parents, who have effectively condemned her to early death and madness, is the first emotion that Sabina shares with the terrifying copper dragon. Over time a unique bond develops between the enslaved dragon Cordain and his reluctant servant -- one that even defies the power of Dag Racho.
Years later when evil Dag Racho is finally destroyed, Cordain's soul is trapped in Dag Racho's body. Determined to find the dragonman and answers, Sabina tracks Cordain, only to discover his memories damaged. Without the copper dragon, the people of Ragona are weakened and vulnerable to their enemies. Are these star-crossed lovers destined to find peace? (LOVE SPELL, Apr., 337 pp., $7.99)
