There is a lot going on in this book. Characters both old and new are integral in the plot, so the reader may wish to refresh his or her memory on the couples from the Banded Brothers series. However, I believe you can enjoy this book even if you start with this one. Jiang and his fellow dragons were cursed by an evil emperor, but as their curse finally fails, Jiang grows into his potential as he was not able to before. I liked how he was drawn to Kurtis despite Kurtis' own cursed state hiding their mating from them and the way Jiang was determined to do the right thing rather than the easy one. I also liked the plot arc being developed for the new series as whole.
Amber Kell is a writer I can count on for entertaining stories and I look forward to the next chapter in Aden Gale's saga as a dragon king.
