I liked this book more than I thought I would. It's fun and not over the top in terms of insta-love bonds. Kai and "said bonded dragon" fight it, but you know the way it'll go in the end. She does go over the top in her effort to not believe the things going on around her though. Too much time is spent with Kai trying to fight against the fact that the bond doesn't exist and dragons aren't...dragons. "THIS MUST ALL BE A LIE!!!!"
Another thing that just gets my goat
All in all I will be eagerly awaiting the next book with all its dragon royalty, usurpers, and rocky romances. Good thing is, all three books of this trilogy will be out by November 2015 end, so look forward to it!
