Xandra’s ship capsizes and she is picked up by a Dragonian slave ship and forced to marry Rayder, in order to keep her safe. Xandra is unaware she is Rayder’s mate and that he is playing a dangerous game with the ship’s Admiral.

In the second book of the Daryk World series, Daryk Rogue gives you more information about both the Dragonians and Magonians and continues to highlight the differences between the two countries. The author brings more intrigue to this story, which keeps the story flowing as you wonder how Rayder is going to pull off his self-imposed mission.

The chemistry between Xandra and Rayder is explosive. The lengths that Rayder goes to protect Xandra is not unrealistic. In some ways, the danger that Xandra and Rayder experience is not unlike the stories we learned about the Old West as we grew up. I liked the way the author resolved the situation after all the twists.

I found some of the secondary characters intriguing and am looking forward to learning more about them in the future. The introduction of a female Daryk One makes you realize that every society has exceptions within and how, sometimes prejudices can have unintended consequences.

You will need to read this series in order, as you will need the background of each book to get a clear idea of what is going on within the Dragonian society. Not only am I looking forward to the next book, I will be reading this series again.
