Half human and half Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful of the Elder races. 

I decided to read this again because I remember loving this when I read it the first time. 

I really hate it sometimes, when I can’t decide between ratings but I got tired of giving half stars, so I ended up giving this one four stars. I don’t know if I have better taste than I had few years ago or if I was in a better mood while reading this last time but I didn’t enjoy it as much. This book was written in third person.

The world was interesting and I wouldn’t ever have guessed what kind of Wyr Pia is. She can’t trust anyone because of how she was raised and that ex- boyfriend of hers, so I  was so happy when she finally told Dragos about what she is.

I really liked our main female character. I really like how brave Pia is. Usually female characters are small, even really short but Dragos describes her being “Normal height for tallish person” and “5”10″ so she would be like 177 cm.

Dragos on other hand is very determinated to find Pia. He made a big thing about that thing and I don’t think he ever got it back unless I missed something. I like Dragos but he made things complicated for the two sometimes. He’s very romantic for a guy who doesn’t believe in love but some things came out a little creepy.

Romance is insta-love. I enjoy them, OK? But it was written well because Pia just didn’t give in right away and tell all her secrets to him. If you don’t like romance this book isn’t for you because the romance is main focus in this one.

4 stars

  1. Lovely review. I really enjoyed this one here, and I remember loving Dragos and Pia together.

    I have found that re-reading old favorite can change your view especially when its years between them. There are some books I used to love when I first started to read romance, but now I can’t anymore. Probably because my reading tastes have changed over the years.
