Publisher's Summary

For 17-year-old Elena Watkins, the world of Paegeia is not finished revealing all its secrets. During a summer break intended for relaxation, she discovers that her harrowing adventure to retrieve the King of Lion sword wasn't the destiny foretold by the cryptic Viden, a dragon with the ability to see a person's true fate. The words inked onto the page of the mysterious Book of Shadows remains black, and Elena must return to Dragonia Academy to discover their true meaning.

Upon her return to the magnificent castle, she has to face a challenge of a different kind - keeping her boyfriend, Lucian McKenzie, the Prince of Tith and love of her life, away from the dangerous new student, Paul Sutton. As a Wyvern, Paul has made it his mission to claim Elena as his rider, but he is proving to be more perilous than at first glance. Everyone knew that Wyverns were bad news and just as evil as the darkness lurking inside Blake Leaf, the Rubicon, who is forced to fight against his inner nature every day. But Elena can see a small light in the darkness, a destiny still unfulfilled, to prove that Wyverns can be claimed.

It has potential, I'm blaming the editor

I see talent in the writing but there are newbie issues (no I have no idea how many the author has written, just an opinion). For one, it needs to decide on an audience. The story line and easy read suggests preteen-early teens yet throws in cursing and sex like trying for a 20+ audience. Then they will be talking in one place then turn around and be in another making it hard to picture or follow. I'll think, 'wait what?' and go back to see if I missed them walking somewhere else but nope. And then in the middle it like, re-explained characters & the story like it was a new book and we had to be reminded? I'm guessing it's an audible thing, like the book was actually released in peices maybe?

There’s a novella at the start

Sort of important to know, because 6 chapters in there’s a complete recap and it gets super redundant. HOWEVER this book is so worth it. I always see twists coming, like always, and this book pulled one over on me three times at the end.

There is a marked improvement over the writing style in the first book, it’s clear that the author has hit her stride.

The first chapter has a weird pitch-shift downward at the very start and it was almost enough for me to call off the series if it had continued into chapter 2. It didn’t.

Pretty Good. Could be better

I keep waiting on something to develop between Elaina and Blake. There are plenty of hints that something is coming between then but after awhile its like, Come on already!

Mixed feelings

The beginning was slow, kept repeating the same things. The ending had me crying and I didn’t see it coming.

great story

loved it overall. my only complaints are these:

the author repeats certain things from the beginning of the book near the middle and end, it's kinda pointless because it's all still the same book.

the narrator pronounces Wyvern as Wayvern. it's just annoying.

Ok

the book was good but it kept going in circles to get to the point. honestly it sidnt need to be that long. But if you stick till the end it ansewers a lot of questions.

very great book

good narration with distinct voices and accents! Love the male narrator's voice!
Story foreshadows much, but you need a good detective mind to catch some clues. Tear-jerker and jaw-dropping after that.

The only parts I disliked was the complete lack of follow up on Flynn's death, then the extreme attention to the final student's death, and the fact that the healer could not smell cigarette smoke on her assistant despite many explanations on how sensitive dragon senses are.

Quite twisty

well, first things first. If like me, you read the first part and thought "yeah, it's not bad, Harry Potter with dragons....but predictable!" think again.
I spent the entire book knowing how it was going to end, knowing good will triumph, this will happen, that will happen and just enjoying the ride. Then the last chapters arrived! I now have no idea where it's going.
I thought it was all planned out, now I'm getting all of a fluster wondering if I should call a sickie and find out now, or just be patient and wait!

very well written, very good performance (although some of the accents are a bit suspect). very enjoyable
