A race almost extingushed, only four left, hunted by an evil emperor who was shunned because he could not shift and goes down the deep end in his revenge. So cruel that he even kidnapped the daughter of his hated brother and brought her up as his own, by such destroying her identity. Desparate parents still loving her, failing to realize that she is already lost. A young hero having escaped the great battle as sole survivor, now rising to the tasks at hand. A great king, coming out of hiding after many year s. All this is the combination for an epic story, full of desparate turning points, many moments that get you very emotional. That incredible couple the dragon king and his wife make! Oh, what a love these two are connected by. Makes your heart soar. For these two alone the story would have been worth reading. However the whole book is good and the story is well written. A clear recommendation.
I only deducted that one star because I disliked this being made into a trilogy, thus dragging the ending of the problems in into another two books. I would have preferred .... dead, period. Can' t help it.
