Pia’s latest pregnancy has become a daily challenge, her relationship with Dragos strained with argument. That hasn’t stopped them from achieving a compromise and traveling to Las Vegas to celebrate their friend Rune’s wedding to his mate Carling.
From the moment they arrive, the trip goes awry. Death walks in Vegas, and Pia is kidnapped as an ancient enemy makes a move to destroy the Great Beast once and for all.
But the Great Beast has other plans.
On Planet Dragos everything goes the way he arranges it—unless someone decides to cross him, and God help them then, because he doesn’t know how to back down, and he doesn’t ever, ever let up….
First of all, thank you to the author for the gifted ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Note: the reader should have read all previous books including Pia and Dragos to understand the context of this book
When I first starting this book, I couldn't help but feel anticipation, excitement and a sense of coming home. I have been a fan of the Elder Races series ever since I read Dragon Bound. These characters, especially Pia and Dragos, are more than just characters - they're like friends. I am so invested into these characters that every Elder Races book I read that had even a glimpse of them in it became a 5 star read to me.
In this book, the characters are all meeting in Vegas for the wedding of Rune and Carling. All isn't sunshine and rainbows between Dragos and Pia's marriage either. The new baby, Liam (Peanut) going off to college and Dragos' weird behavior are all taking their toll. Throw in the appearance of a character seen once or twice in previous books, Death, and we have ourselves a 'WTH is going to happen' book. And I love those. I love when I can't predict the outcome or even the journey of the characters in a book. I wasn't sure who would be in danger and in which manner. I just knew that if at any point Pia was the one in danger Dragos was going to flip out and burn the world.
And boy was I right.
Pia is kidnapped by an old enemy of Dragos's. Take note that in a previous book Dragos suffered a head injury and memory gaps so there are a lot of enemies that he has (he is an ancient being) that he does not remember. So when Pia disappears its not easy to create a list of Dragos's enemies. All we know is that it may be up to Pia to save herself. And let's not forget that she is almost ready to give birth. Dragos's Sentinels as well as Dragos's other allies will all band together to save Pia and take out the enemy of old that is behind the kidnapping.
