It's all coming to a head
Reviewed in the United States on May 27, 2022
Parts of this book are pretty harrowing.
The infected dragons that came through the portal in the last book are attacking all over the world almost completely unchecked.
While some people recognize that it is time to put their petty squabbling aside and unite to try and save what they can - others see nothing but the opportunity to further their own interests, taking advantage of others' misfortune in some pretty horrendous ways.
But it's not all bleak and hopeless. There are bright and even funny moments to alleviate the gloom, as well as glimpses of hope for the future.
I had a hard time putting this book down and am looking forward to September 30th and the release of the final Dragon Gate book.
Mild spoilers ahead:
Shikari continues to steal the show for me as he grows from a rambunctious kid into more of a teenager - learning to communicate with Jak in actual words.
Tonovan finally gets some of what he's had coming -though I'm vindictive enough to wish he'd gotten to choke down even more helpings of humble pie...
Uthari's obsession to control everyone and everything backfires on him in a way that *might* actually force him to take an honest look at himself and his methods (for Malek's sake, I hope so anyway).
