The protagonist, Taniel, is in her twenties and her father, who is often drunk, runs the local tavern. Even though she seems held back by her gender (because of the culture) and her somewhat useless father, she is full of spunk and passion. Her father also has an opportunity to redeem himself, but I think we'll see more of him in Book 2. Taniel falls almost instantly in love with Jarryd, a man whom she thinks is a dragonrider. He means well, but he also has a few vices. Perhaps his vices, though, aren't as bad as others. Did Taniel make the right choice? And, why does everyone want a piece of her? The ending leaves you breathless and wanting more!

The story is told through multiple viewpoints, which are well melded together so that events move along smoothly. The many characters are well drawn and believable and interact well with each other.
The feisty protagonist, Taniel, is a young woman in her mid-twenties, living and working at the tavern owned by her father, Hanrey Bartle. On first meeting Taniel, we soon learn that two things dominate her thoughts. The first is that she longs to have her own dragon. The second is that she dislikes the man to whom she is betrothed on her father’s wishes – and to whom Hanrey has sold half his tavern in readiness.
Having been brought up by Hanrey, Taniel has no memory of her mother, who disappeared when she was a baby. On top of this, her father refuses to speak of the matter. His response puzzles and frustrates Taniel even more as unusual things start to happen in her life.
The story takes us on a journey of discovery for Taniel as she faces dangers, meets new people and strange creatures as she is taken to places she’s never been before...
And all she wanted was a dragon.
I would recommend this book to fantasy lovers, particularly those featuring dragons, as they play a major role in the plot. I look forward to reading the continuation of the story in Book 2 of the series.
