4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

Skylar is determined to save her sister from the dragons. What she doesn’t expect is to find herself attracted to the ruthless dragon king Ladon Ormarr or to find herself being claimed by him. 

After reading the first book, I was very interested in this world and the dragon’s war. I went into this book more for the background story than the romance but that quickly changed. I adored Skylar and Ladon’s relationship. It was a marriage of convenience that was beautifully written and filled with danger and excitement. 

“Stubborn women keep the world from falling to shit.”

Skylar was fearless. She wasn’t afraid to out herself for her sister, or stand up to any of the dragons. She was always tough and protective and I loved her so much. I also loved how she never really panicked, she just rolled with the things happening and found ways to survive. 

Ladon is known as a tough and ruthless king, but he is actually very sweet. I loved his determination to win Skylar over. He may not show a lot of feelings towards others but he really opens up with Skylar and I loved it all. 

“You have my heart and my soul, woman. I love you so much, these days without you hurt like the fires of hell.”

Overall, this was a wonderful couple and a great sequel to this story. I can’t wait to read the next one and learn about Meira.
