Best bits: I did enjoy seeing Martin finally fall in love, ill-fated as it may be. Loved Ryan’s eager delight in seeking his son, and Ewan's reunion with Shannon and meeting Marin. I also liked how Regone is named for Rega--like Martin, I didn't see it until it was pointed out, but that's good stuff. The dragon-sharing potion at the end is a bit easy, but it's happy, so who cares. An overall satisfying conclusion to the series.
Issues: Some typos and errors (one weird page break at the very beginning; the Dragon Queen, who is green, is described as red when she reappears near the end, etc). The POV switches are a bit more jarring in this book, mostly because we go between 2 such very different times and events. I'm a little skeptical about how very long it takes before Rega offers her "cure" to Ewan--it really doesn't seem like they needed to be gone a whole year. Sexual references ramp up yet again. Idriss is a very sexual being, fairly blatant about her desire for Ewan, though he is not tempted at all, and calmly reminds Idriss each time that he's married. Childbirth scenes, and Riley's attempted rape of a young girl.
2) Any course language present : One use each of the word 'damn' and 'hell' but otherwise suitable for virtually any age group
3) Type of book : Fantasy/Adventure book with some romance for good measure
4) Formatting/Editing : Well-written with few typos I noticed
5) Best/Worst aspect of book : Characters I cared about, great world-building and a phenomenal close!
6) Favorite Passage : "It takes humility to truly comprehend the world."
7) Bottom-line : The kind of series best enjoyed start to finish (Sure hope there are some spin-offs!) Superb book!
Shannon and Ewan find themselves in a bit of an unconventional spot in this book. A dragon is married to a scholar. They are very much in love, but his dragon form is a problem for their current state. They had one night together in the end of the third book, but all it did was make them both want more. Shannon will do her best to be content with him as a dragon as long as he is around. But not Ewan. He wants very badly to return to a human state to be able to touch and hold Shannon.
While Ewan is gone, Shannon finds herself with child and starts getting very lonely without Ewan. She tries to keep herself busy, waiting on his return. She did give him a year, but hadn't actually thought it would take that long. She holds the secret of her pregnancy for as long as possible, but can't forever. People notice when she hasn't eaten and isn't feeling well so often. She is doing her best to go on without Ewan there.
Martin finds himself particularly drawn to Idriss's daughter, Rega. She is only half Fey and an accomplished hunter. Her father had long since been turned into a stag and let loose to live out the rest of his days after Idriss was tired of him. She did this often with her lovers. They were all disposable to her. But Rega wasn't like her or even the other Fey. She had a soft spot for the humans. But things could never work out between Martin and Rega for an astounding reason you find out later on in the book.
The ending was absolutely fantastic! It was just as it should be with some surprise to it as well. Things never quite end like you expect them to. And let's just say that Ewan must pay a price to regain his human form. It is a price that affects everyone around him. Should he choose to take the risk anyway?
The ending really got me down because it's now over -- for me anyway. But all the magic, the characters, the Fey!, the dragons, the fact that Shannon is now an actual princess -- I guess it all boils down to how I cannot contain my love for this book. Read it read it read it.
Ewan and Martin go to the dragons, and then the Fey, seeking to break the curse that keeps Ewan a dragon. At the same time, Ryan seeks his heir, Shannon deals with intrigue and morning sickness, and the evil King Riley plans to attack Regone.
The action doesn't stop. I read this whole book in almost one solid shot. It's a satisfying conclusion to the series, although it is a bit bittersweet.
