My Review:

This is an action packed, fast paced and enthralling story and I’m so glad I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book.

Zakarai Mossknot had never really fitted in with his family. They’re all water rat shifters but he’s never learnt to shift. He’s also taller than them and has always been picked on, especially by his older brother. He was out with his Pa and brother when the sun turned black – and so did the eyes of everyone around him. As they set out to kill him, Zak escapes but witnesses further murderous mayhem as he tries to reach the Owls to find out what is happening and what to do.

Myrian Moonglow is the spoilt white dragon princess. She’s used to having servants do her bidding and a life of luxury but when everyone around her starts trying to kill her she decides to go to the Owls, too. When she and Zak meet up she’s a rude, stuck up, opinionated young lady and not very likeable. However as the two set off to save the world, she realises how wrong her attitude was and discovers that Zak and she have been prophesied to help save the world. Now they need to journey to find everyone else necessary to help defeat the demon intent on taking over the world.

The characters are diverse. I loved the were rabbit, especially! The dragons all have different strengths and powers to bring to the final battle. However, don’t anticipate this being the end of the series, it isn’t! There’s one more book to come and I can’t wait to read it! This is a real page turner, set in a well developed fantasy world with great characters and a fantastic good v evil battle in process. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys dragon shifter adventures and romance!

Synopsis

SA malevolent power has been unleashed upon Xandakar. The fate of the world lies in the hands of a young man and a young woman whose lives are about to change forever.

Zakarai Mossknot lives deep in the southern swamps with a family of rat shifters who steal and scavenge to survive. He’s out on the boat with his Pa and his brother when the sun turns black as pitch, along with the eyes of everyone around him, transforming them into murderous monsters. So begins the longest, darkest day of Zak’s life. He will have to fight for his very survival, discover who he really is, and meet a young woman who is also fleeing from the dark magic that has gripped their world. She is spoiled, selfish, and headstrong, but she is also the most beautiful, clever girl he has ever met.

Myrian Moonglow is a princess in the clan of the white dragons. She has lived her entire life in luxury and comfort, tucked away behind the high marble walls of the Moonglow castle. But her sheltered life is thrown into chaos when the sun goes dark and everyone she loves is suddenly trying to kill her. As she flees the horrors of the dark day, she will meet a young man, a peasant dressed in rags from the swamps to the west. And even though he is rude, impudent, and ignorant, he may be her only hope for living another day, if another day will ever come.
