Goodreads Synopsis

On the back of the dragon Wahirangi, Finn the Fox flees the world he has known. As he sets out to find the brother he never knew of, he still holds in his heart the memory of the Hunter. He has denied his love for her, but he cannot deny it forever.

In the halls of the Last Believers, Talyn begins to uncover her own mysteries, but her lust for the death of the Caisah is still strong and clouds her vision. She must choose her path, as the Seer of her people or as the assassin of the overlord.

Meanwhile, Byre, Talyn's brother, must venture into the fiery world of the Kindred, to rebuild the pact that his ancestors made. He will risk everything he is as he forms a new pact that will change his people forever.

Dragons and myths will be reborn, as the Hunter and her Fox face each other once more.

Why am I waiting on this book?

The minute I discovered that dragons
were involved in this plot,
I just knew I had to get this book!
I LOVE dragons!!
Anne McCaffrey and Christopher Paolini
are two authors whose books
I want to read, and now...
I'm adding Philippa Ballantine!
(And I'm happy to have found out
that she's from New Zealand,
where The Lord of the Rings was filmed!!)

What do you think of my choice?
What fascinating book(s)
are you waiting on this week?


  1. This looks really good! It is new to me so I must add it to my tbr! Great pick!

    My WOW

    1. Hi, there!

      Yeah, it sure does! Glad you agree, and that you're adding it to your TBR!

      Thanks for the visit and the comment!!:)

  2. The cover alone makes this one look good. Years ago a read a fair share of Anne McCaffrey. She was a great author and I recommend her. I never read Christopher Paolini, his books do look good to.

    1. Hey, Brian!

      Yes, I LOVE this cover! I might have read an Anne McCaffrey book in the past....don't remember. And I DEFINITELY want to read Paolini's books, even though I do think McCaffrey's books should have been made into movies already, before his were. After all, she was the one who created the idea of dragon riders.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting!! :)
