Battle Bond is the second book in the Death Before Dragons series. It begins with Val and Sindari searching to find kidnapped children. Val locates the kids and discovers that they were kidnapped by a dragon--one that she's never met before. It turns out the second dragon, Dob, is trying to get Zav's attention and was using the kidnapped children to do it. Dob tasks Val to deliver a message to Zav, much to her chagrin. As much as Val would like her life to be dragon-free, she now has to work with Zav to help him capture Dob. On top of that, Nin is being bullied by a rival group of arms dealing shifters and she asks Val to help her negotiate with the bullies.
I really enjoyed the book, it's a great follow up to the first! I still like Val and Sindari’s banter back and forth and I love the way Val gets under Zav's skin. I'm eagerly anticipating the third book to see what the repercussions are from activities at the end of this story. In my opinion, this series is worth the investment!
