Ketera survives a shipwreck landing in Dragonia. She is found by Dane, who saves her from a slaver then takes to his home. Dane sets out to change her mind about Dragonians, as they are considered enemies by the Magonians.

Daryk Hunter is the first book in the Daryk World series and sets the stage for the coming civil war in Dragonia. Ms. Agnew has created a vibrant world as the backdrop for this story. The descriptions of some of the animals and plants found in Dragonia created pictures in my mind.

Dane seduces Ketera and the chemistry between them is hot and requires keeping ice on hand. The emotional change that the two undergo is a realistic look at two people of different backgrounds growing to love each other and then overcoming adversity. The relationship between Dane and his half-brother gives a realistic look at the rivalry between siblings.

Some of the secondary characters are very colorful and give the reader some entertainment during some of the situations that arise. The interactions between all the characters are interesting and I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
