Dragon Eternal

Dragon Eternal (Dragon Kings #4)Dragon Eternal by Donna Grant
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We’re still on Zora, still trying to hunt down the threat to dragons in this world, so if none of that make sense to you, I’d recommend starting at least a full book or two before this one. Since this is the spinoff of another series that includes some spinoffs of its own, there is a lot of character and world building prior to this that may be rolled into my enjoyment of this one.

Shaw is the broody one (which is saying something when I’m pretty sure all the dragon kings are broody). He agrees to “infiltrate” the human kingdom to try to find their invisible enemy. This kingdom is all sorts of wrong. There is an extreme class system that is determined and ruled by “the Divine.” It’s implied that this person/thing/whatever will be the big bad, but we do not get any such straightforward resolution in this single book. Instead, we follow the story of Nia. She was a starving orphan until the Divine decided she should serve court. After some horrible darkness, she ends up as a courtesan, tasked with getting secrets out of folks. It’s in this role that she is sent after Shaw.

Fate has different plans for these two, however. They are draw to each other without the additional subterfuge they are tasked with. While we get some good happily ever after for these two, it’s almost like we took one step forward and two steps back in the overall story. I can’t wait to see what happens to Shaw’s partner and his journey, which I assume is the next book in this tale.
