Centuries ago, Illarion was betrayed– a dragon made human against his will, then forced to serve humanity as a dragonmount in their army, and to fight for them in barbaric wars, even while he hated everything about them. Enslaved and separated from everyone he knew and from his own dragon brothers, he was forced into exile in a fey realm where he lost the only thing he ever really loved.
Now he has a chance to regain what’s been lost— to have the one thing he covets most. But only if he gives up his brothers and forsakes the oaths he holds most dear. Yet what terrifies him most isn’t the cost his happiness might incur, it’s the fact that there is just enough human in his dragon’s heart that he might actually be willing to pay it and betray everything and everyone– to see the entire world burn and the Were-Hunter clans fall– to sacrifice his own brothers– for his own selfish desire.
Long ago, Edilyn saved Illarion’s life and almost tamed the feral beast. Now she must stop him from fulfilling the Dragonmark prophecy or do what she was trained to do. Slay the dragon who spared her life to save the rest of humanity. Something that should be easy for a dragonslayer of her skills, yet nothing is ever as simple as it seems. And sometimes, just sometimes, the key to salvation lies not in the hands of your most trusted friends, but in those of your worst enemies.
Dragonmark releases August 2, 2016!
Why I'm waiting:
I have been a die-hard fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series for almost a decade now and while I have slacked in the past year or so when it comes to keeping up with her releases, recently my love for this author and all things paranormal romance has been renewed and as a result this book is at the top of my to-read list for 2016! Although I might have have to do a re-read of this entire series before I dive into this book next year because I have forgotten a lot of the little details and need to refresh my memory, so that I can figure out were Illarion and Edilyn fit into the grand scheme of things.
So what are y'all waiting on this week?
