"Nobody wanted to talk to Dragos these days. No doubt it had something to do with him being so snarly."
If you read Dragon Bound (book 1 in the series) you know that Dragos is often snarly so why is it important in this book. Here is the Goodreads summary:
In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two mates find themselves on different paths, torn between their duty to the Wyr and the passion that binds them…
Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom.
In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear.
I just got the book from Amazon and am almost finished. It is not my favorite but it is a good story. Thea Harrison has a new series comeing out in 2013. There is a preview in the back of Lord's Fall. I hope that it does not mean she is through with the Elder Races series.
