What's to like: This unique world has magical elements but it's not strictly supernatural. Torsere is a place full of humans, both royal and common. A limited number are born enchanted with the ability to bond with dragons. Sounds cool, right? Many moons ago the dragons took refuge in the kingdom negotiating a deal to benefit both the people and the dragons. Nykin was blessed with the ability and only recently bonded with his dragon, Fimor. Nykin is young, brave, and eager to prove his loyalty. As the story unfolds we are introduced to more mystical creatures, such as elves and witches. Of course, there are good and bad. A fragile peace has kept things quiet but when Ryneq is kidnapped a burst of turbulence takes everyone under. War ignites and an action-packed rescue mission kept me on the edge of my seat. Good stuff my friends!
What's to love: Even with a hefty plot, the guys soar to the top. I fell victim to the king's charm and was rooting for our dragon rider from the first moment of his mission. Save a life and steal a heart...what more can you ask for? Well, how about faithful friends, a delightful sibling, and sharp-witted dragons...oh, and I can't forget steamy sexual tension and daring battles! I enjoyed the unexpected moments as much as the anticipated ones. I loved the banter and the danger. I loved the passion and the excitement. Romance wasn't the heartbeat of this tale but it was a steady pulse. I have no doubt it's only going to get hotter and grip even tighter with the next book. Can't wait to find out!
Beware of: This introduction is an entertaining keystone...sure to whet your appetite. Dragon bonds are intimate...yet limited. And the king may be captured...but so is his heart.
This book is for: If you need an escape this magical ride is guaranteed to take you away!
Nykin loved being a dragon rider. Since marked at birth, he couldn’t wait to be bonded with his own dragon. And he was. Their bond was strong, but only would become stronger when Nykin actually fully trusted Fimor, his dragon, knew best, even when Nykin thinks he didn’t. But only being bonded a year, it would take a little time. But the love they already had for each other was obvious in all they did. But just when things seemed to calm for a moment from attacks from others, and the wedding of the princess seemed to finally be going forward, a sneak attack came, that ended with the king kidnapped and the princess in hiding. And with how Nykin felt about Ryneq, although he denied it, he wanted to go save him and now. But they had to make a good plan. Regardless, Nykin was going in. He knew he would be the best choice. He was the most expendable. But none of them have a clue of how far deep the spies are or who they are. And Nykin is about to face certain death when they catch him. It’s going to be a fight to see if the plan they have works, or if it falls apart before their eyes.
I was so enraptured with Nykin from the get go. I love his energy, his enthusiasm and his love of Fimor and their bond. He’s incredibly brave and sometimes a bit strong willed. But only because he’s young and has more to learn. But that doesn’t stop him from making sure all is right between him and Fimor or stop him from being brave when needed, even if he’s scared to his core. It’s amazing how incredible he really is and I had to laugh when Fimor was trying to get the King’s attention with Nykin. Ryneq was already incredibly aware of Nykin, but he had to run a kingdom. And with the threats at every turn, he felt he had no time for a fling. And that’s all it could be for now. And Nykin is not a fling kind of man. But sometimes I wanted to shake Rykin because you have to take opportunities when they come because life isn’t a sure thing. As he quickly learned. I think who made this book even more for me though, was Fimor himself. His personality is off the charts. His sarcasm, his quick wit, his humor. He was the one who made things more interesting. And I love how he’s willing to risk it all, for his rider, who he would snort at than admit, he’s quite fond of.
It’s a good start to this series. Espionage, kingdoms in wars, elves, dragons, magic. Mystery, intrigue. All the good stuff to make it a page turner you can’t put down.
I enjoyed the personalities of both Ryneq and Nykin, but especially the dragon rider. Fimor the bonded dragon to Nykin stole the show with his humor and wit. Slightly temperamental, the dragon added to the overall storyline and gave the reader a greater glimpse between rider and dragon.
Ms. Jacobs’s world was unique with twists and turns and open ended to allow the evolution of the subsequent books. As a fan of Ms. Jacobs, I look forward to reading the remainder of the series.

A four handcuff review
Dragons! A dragon rider and a king, what can be better than that? I liked Nykin right out of the gate, I think he states what he wants and loves his job. Ryneq, he took a little while for me to like, I'm not sure what it was that held me back from liking him at the beginning of the book.
All in all, it was a good read and I look forward to book two.
