Out of all the mysterious boarders who call Sanctuary home, no one is more antisocial or withdrawn than Maxis Drago. But then, it’s hard to blend in with the modern world when you have a fifty foot wingspan.

Centuries ago, he was cursed by an enemy who swore to see him fall. An enemy who took everything from him and left him forever secluded.

But Fate is a bitch, with a wicked sense of humor. And when she throws old enemies together and threatens the wife he thought had died centuries ago, he comes back with a vengeance. Modern day New Orleans has become a battleground for the oldest of evils. And two dragons will hold the line, or go down in flames.

Elizabeth's Thoughts
I was VERY worried about reading this book. The last book—SON OF NO ONE—was a tough read and ended so abruptly, I thought part of the story was missing. Well, I didn’t have to worry because DRAGONBANE was awesome! I started it last night and read all the way through to the wee hours of the morning until I finished it!

First of all, I loved that it was nonstop action from start to finish. Constant battles, CRAZY alliances and even crazier actions set into motion! My mind was blown so many times, I could put the book down because I was afraid I’d miss something!

I did have a few issues with some of the characters. It wasn’t the characters per se but the revelations about the characters. First they were one thing, then they were another until finally their true origins were revealed. It was confusing at times and difficult to keep up with, which took me out of the story but fortunately, the action drew me back in!

I also loved that DRAGONBANE filled in a lot of holes in the Were-Hunter universe. I love the intricate complexities and wild oxy-morons of the series. When you think that something just couldn’t be possible, it is. And will exceed all of your expectations.

I will say though that I didn’t much care for the heroine, Seraphina. Her betrayal was unforgivable in my eyes and while it worked out in the story, in the end, I couldn’t get behind her.

All-in-all, it was an entertaining story that I really enjoyed.
