Out of all the mysterious boarders who call Sanctuary home, no one is more antisocial or withdrawn than Maxis Drago. But then, it’s hard to blend in with the modern world when you have a fifty foot wingspan.

Centuries ago, he was cursed by an enemy who swore to see him fall. An enemy who took everything from him and left him forever secluded.

But Fate is a bitch, with a wicked sense of humor. And when she throws old enemies together and threatens the wife he thought had died centuries ago, he comes back with a vengeance. Modern day New Orleans has become a battleground for the oldest of evils. And two dragons will hold the line, or go down in flames.

Intriguing story line with strong characters. Maxis and Seraphina were fated a very long time ago which was a cruel joke by the fates. Maxis is an original dragon and Seraphina is an Amazon who prides herself on how many dragons she has killed. Thousands of years ago, Seraphina turned on Maxis and allowed her tribe to subject him to horrible torture that almost killed him. Maxis vowed to leave and never return to her even though it meant a life of celibacy for himself. When Seraphina turns up at Sanctuary looking for Max, he is more than surprised to see her.

The Dark Hunter series has been a favorite of mine for years. If you’ve never read the books I highly recommend taking the time to invest in an awesome series! Book 19 tells the story of the original dragons, how the Arcadians and Katagari’s were created and why the hatred exists between the groups. Now this wasn’t a typical dark hunter novel but was more focused on the other characters and species that exist in this world then on the dark hunters and their stories. It answered a lot of questions that have lingered throughout the years.

  1. I love this series. I haven't read this one yet but it sounds great.

  2. This sounds exciting! I love this genre. I'll have to check her books out.

  3. Somehow I missed this one! I do love her Dark Hunters and Were Hunters, but kind of stopped a few books after Acheron as they all felt the same. Adding it to my wishlist, because: Dragons! And Sanctuary.
