This is probably just me and no fault of the author, but I'm having trouble envisioning the big dragon and Tylie's dragon (I can't begin to remember how to spell those names) as described. Despite numerous reminders that the big one is gold, I keep seeing him as red. And despite as frequent reminders that Tylie's dragon is silver, I keep imagining him as being green.
Anyway, I am really getting into this series. Each book is better than its predecessor. I'm looking forward to the next one!
It made it a bit hard for me to care about her. the rest of this tale also had a bit of a "raise the bar" motif that pushed the tale into the ludicrous zone. The series started with no dragon having been seen for over 1000 years. Two appear before this book in the series. (one in book 4, one in book 5.5) This tale adds 3 more dragons, although only one gets any real depth to him. We also see more fighting at and around the secret Iskandia mines where Sardelle was.
It makes for an interesting, but extremely chaotic story. It's still worth the read, but... I felt it could have been less chaotic and still moved the plot along. But that's just me.
I love the addition of dragons and while Phel seems way too closed off and stuck on Tylie for some odd reason, I loved this story's bad guy Mor. (His name is actually longer but I'm lazy and can't bother to look up the right spelling of his tricky name.) I also hope that Sardelle and Jaxi will find out more about dragons in the final installation as these mysterious creatures no-one had seen in a thousand years are definitely something I wish to learn more about.
This book was also the first that gave us more than two POVs (I guess I got what I wanted) and to my utmost surprise I actually prefer only 2 POVs to all four ... Maybe I would've liked it better if Buroker had added Kaika's POV to the others.
Also, WHAT KIND OF AN ENDING WAS THAT??? I NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOW!
The action is non stop, the fight scenes are written so you can actually follow them and all the characters have a unique depth to them that makes you care about what happens to them and what comes next.
Lindsay, I will be looking at other series but please occasionally come back and tell us more about this one. Please?
One thing that has become crystal clear while reading this series is the fine line that an author walks between making situations either overly serious or overly humorous. From the start I have loved the humor and wit that Buroker infuses into her characters, but not once has it taken precedence over just how serious her plotline is, that her charcters are fighting for not only their lives but a whole country's while they fight a war. It is so easy for humor to take away from that, and on the flip side for an extremely serious situation to drain the personality from the characters. NOT THE CASE HERE! Buroker walks that line like a pro, and that is what makes this series so wonderful. Her characters are so rich and so vibrant and brimming with personality that my heart can't take how much I love them.
If you are a fan of fantasy, do what is good for you and READ THIS SERIES!

The book continues the story at the usual high speed and is as hard to put down as all the books to date.
Warning - Spoiler the book does end on a cliff hanger and if you don't like those then wait to read this instalment until book 7 is out on 22/12/2015 - I've already pre-ordered my copy.
