In a time of false peace, the dead rise as soldiers for the Warloc’s scheme. For thousands of years he has stood ready for the final battle. Though the witch and her cursed Elvin have destroyed his physical body, now with his protégé, he has honed a new way to wage war. Shunned by her own people and weary-hearted from centuries of lost loves, Elvin warrior Mirhana scours the land to silence the undead. Her heart has turned as cold as the sword she wields, until a prince seeks her aid. Never has Prince Landon met a woman like Mirhana. Both beautiful and deadly, she haunts his dreams. The battle at hand becomes more enchanting than fighting to remain true to his unseen betrothed. When a traitor emerges, new alliances are tested and the only remaining hope is to follow the prophecy and find the ... Son of Dragons.


After reading "Cursed in Shadow", the lovely novella between the first instalment and this one, I was really looking forward to meet Brock's sister and see those two finally reunited. Unfortunately, it didn't work as well as I hoped...

I definitely think the main problem here is the pace. Everything runs so fast that I didn't have time to properly enjoy the events and, I have to admit, a 'slow down' escaped from my mouth quite frequently. I couldn't connect with the characters and the so awaited brother and sister's reunion was just too quick, same for their attachment to each other. It didn't seem particularly believable, and I'm afraid the fast pace the author kept for the whole book didn't let me be drawn into Landon and Mirhana falling for each other either. Too bad because there is also lots of action that makes you think of an exciting read, but in the end that wasn't enough for me.

Anyway, I enjoyed other Cooper's books, so this one episode won't stop me from reading her next works.

RATING: 2.5/5
