From Publishers Weekly
Abé's fifth Drákon fantasy romance (after 2009's The Treasure Keeper) introduces Honor Carlisle, whose time-traveling powers help her fit into a dragon society hidden in the midst of 18th-century England. In an original and ambitious spin on time travel stories, Honor is at once the heroine and, from a future time line, the nemesis who drives the plot. The slow revelation of why and how such a sympathetic character could turn against her values adds dramatic tension, and the drákon's well-meant efforts to avert tragedy lead them to horrific expedients, making a welcome change from stock villains. Despite occasional purple prose and an unsatisfying ending precipitated by a third party who forces resolution on the conflicted protagonists, this story delivers a real sense of wonder. (June)

I am still very happy I read this series, and I still highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good romance series that sometimes gives up a healthy dose of bittersweet.
The only thing that concerns me are the open plots in the series -- whatever happened to Kit & Rue, and what became of poor, scattered Hayden? I hope Ms. Abe's new off-shoot series will address these concerns, and finally put those plots to rest for us.
Really enjoyed this series, and Ms. Abe writes beautifully, almost lyrically. It's a pleasure to read.
