After Belora kills a deer, she ends up being taken by a dragon to Gareth to make a decision about who gets the deer.  Gareth and Kel realize that Belora could be one of the rare women who can become a mate to a Dragon Knight.

Maiden Flight is the first book in the Dragon Knights series and is a fast-paced read that kept my interest throughout.  The author went into lots of detail about the interesting customs among the knights and their dragons, the relationships that they had with their dragons and mates for both. I actually shuddered when I read about the enemy they would be fighting.

There is also a subplot involving Belora’s mother and Kel’s mother, as dragons don’t usually raise human children.  Kel’s mother also didn’t behave as a typical dragon around humans.  The relationship is heartwarming, and ended up giving me a little shock at the end as we discover more about Belora and her family.

The chemistry between Belora, Gareth and Lars, as well as between Kel and Tina is very intense.  I did have a small issue with Gareth, as he neglected to give Belora full disclosure about what would be expected of her when she accepted his proposal.

I am looking forward to learning more about these knights and some of their ladies in the future, and want to see some resolution about Belora’s family as well.
