Three dragons wreak havoc throughout Mirabay--eating livestock, killing humans, and burning entire villages to ash. It was nearly impossible to kill one, using a legendary sword and the magic of the mysterious Cup; to tackle three, Guillot dal Villerauvais will need help.
The mage Solène fears having to kill again; she leaves Gill to gain greater control over her magic.
The Prince Bishop still wants Gill dead, but more than that, he wants the Cup, and he'll do whatever he has to to get it, even sending his own daughter--a talented thief and assassin--into the dragons' path.
As secrets mount on secrets and betrayals on betrayals, both Guillot and Solène face critical decisions that will settle not only their own fate but that of all Mirabaya.
Going with a 3.75 star rating. I stated this in the last review for book one, but I just don't care for books that contain a lot of inner dialogue and thought. I prefer books that have more character interaction. Just my own personal taste.
Guillot aka Gill is still awesome. He's straightforward, lazy and funny. He reminds me of a lazy version of Geralt. He was a lot more focused this time around and did things with a lot more care. I enjoyed watching him slay dragons, help the villagers and work with other people. Gill still rocks for me.
Solene is bae! I just adore her and her heart. She's seriously the only pure hearted character in this trilogy. She tries hard to learn about her magic, help Gill and survive in the craziness of her world. I can't wait to see how powerful she becomes and if she really goes along with the enlightenment.
Amaury aka Prince Bishop is still an infuriating man and his daughter is annoying. He is a great villain for the trilogy. I'm interested in seeing how far his scheme goes and how many people continue to die for his stupidity. After what he did to the king -- I just need him to die.
Pharadon was my new favorite character in this book! First off he was a cool darn dragon, but the ability to change into human form and speak was insane! He was sensible and well rounded. There is a lot of promise with him and I'm stoked to see what happens next and for the pretty golden dragon.
Overall, it was good dragon novel. I'm intrigued by the addition of Pharadon and him working with Gill. I will definitely be reading the conclusion of this trilogy to see how everything ends for the characters.
