My rating: 5 of 5 stars
re-read aug 18 2017.. This may be my favorite book of all time. It is fantastic.
Oh you guys. This is by far the best book from this series. It is one of the best books I've read in a long while. I don't even think I can write a proper review. That's honestly how much I loved it. But I shall try.
The book starts off with Elina with a ridiculously long name from the Stepps "attempting" to assassinate the Dragon Queen. I say "attempting" because she really didn't try. She told the guard, Celyn, that she was there to kill the queen and then when brought before the queen she told her that she was there to kill her.. Everyone laughed and Celyn was ordered to put her somewhere safe and he put her in jail and then forgot about her for months. But then the Queen decides she wants Elina to try to help form an alliance with the dragons and the women of the Stepps. So thats how the whole journey started. Celyn escorts Elina back home.
Obviously a lot more happens but you can read the book and find all that out. What I freaking loved about this book was Elina and Celyn. I don't even know how to explain. Elina is blunt to the point of rudeness. She takes everything that is said literally and everything she says is meant to be literal. She says anything and everything that should never be said. She wasn't dramatic in any way. Everything was said just as a fact and I effing love her. I seriously want her in my life. No other character has ever made me laugh as much.
“It must be nice to fly.”
“Is that sarcasm?”
“No. If I could fly, I would live in tree. Stare down at everyone... quietly hating them all.”
“What are you doing?” he asked, sounding much more panicked than he’d like to.
“It has been long day,” she replied nonchalantly. “Much activity. I am tired but not sleepy. I thought we could fuck and then I would have good night’s sleep, making me ready for ride tomorrow.”
“You want to fuck me?”
“You are only one here. I could play with myself, but... you are here. And sometimes my hands get tired. I do not want them worn out in case we have more murderers to kill tomorrow.”
And Ceyln just accepts and takes anything that Elina throws at him. And he is funny as well. I also love his interaction with his sister. I don't think anyone else could have made a better mate for Elina. He was sweet, even when Elina had no clue why. He was just adorable. He is my favorite dragon. By far. I love him.
I loved literally everything about this book. I am excited to read the next one with Elina's sister :)
