Book Review – The Dragon of Despair

Wolf Book 3

All is not well in the land. Melina has married The Healed One and the Duchess Kestrel is the first to know. Settlers have pushed into the Iron Mountains to settle, much as Prince Barden did. Derian goes to check out the settlement and place grave markers thus fulfilling his promise. Firekeeper goes to see her family and finds out that the Royal animals are not pleased. In fact there is talk of war with the humans if the settlers do not leave. Firekeeper travels as fast as she can back to King Tedric to let him know and to find out what he will do about it

Meanwhile Elise is asked to lead an expedition back to New Kelvin to find out what Melina is up to as well as trying to save Citrine’s sanity. She travels to the Kestrel holdings to get Citrine comfortable with the group that will be going New Kelvin and to have everyone tutored in the language by Grateful Peace.

Is Elise still in love with Doc? Does Firekeeper have new enemies and not just the 2 legged kind? What is the secret that the healed one knows? Is there really a dragon? How the hell is Elise going to get into New Kelvin again when they were fugitives the last time they left? Is Melina still a raging byotch? Does a wolf shit in the woods?

All these questions and more are answered in Book 3 and I just bought the last 3 books in the series, I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but I think this is one of the best series I have read in a long time.
