As second son of the King of Levathia, seventeen-year-old Valerian desires the quiet life of a scholarly monk. But when he fails to save his older brother in battle, Valerian must instead become crown prince. While a traitorous knight schemes against him, Valerian meets Mercy, a pacifist Healer with whom he can speak mind-to-mind like the great dragons. Their bond emboldens Valerian to seek out the legendary dragons and ask for their help against the monsters who killed his brother. Can Valerian survive the traitor’s assassins long enough to find the dragons? And if he does, can he convince them to lay aside their hatred of humans and help him save the land from destruction?
Price Valerian is a second son, so he knows the throne is not in his future, until a unexpected attaxk takes the life of his older brother, the beloved battle harder prince of the land, and now Valerian must put aside his books and embrace a life of battle. Mercy, who’s life has been struggle and hardship feels like she’s meant for more then to be married off to the religious leader of her village. But war is coming to the whole land, and there’s a lot of changes coming for Valerian and Mercy, and a whole lot more. I love their relationship, and how they really compliment each other. There’s a lot of great moments in this book, and I really enjoyed reading it.
Overall, the book was really well developed, the characters were believable and I really enjoyed that there were DRAGONS in this world, though I thought we could’ve had a lot more of them in the book without hindering the wonderful plot. I also wanted some more history of the land, but those are picky things from a dragon obsessed fantasy lover!
Well done Jones! I cannot wait to check out book 2, because I’m pretty hooked on these characters! :)
