Roland is fatally wounded.  Lana and Tor realize how bad he is and end up saving him.  Just as Roland realizes she is his mate, he also realizes she is one of the lost princesses.

The Ice Dragon is the third book in the Dragon Knights series and introduces a new dragon to the readers.   New weapons are discovered that the northern warlord has created to use against the dragons.  He is also trying to re-capture Tor.

As Lana’s story unfolds, I was a little disappointed that more information wasn’t given about how she ended up where she did after being abducted as a child.  The warlord whose slave she was couldn’t have cared less whether she lived or not once Tor was born and he made a big mistake by making her care for the baby dragon.

I loved the way Roland and his knights were willing to listen to Lana and made her feel that she had a lot to offer militarily, along with her healing ability.  As Roland and Lana became friends, the chemistry between them scorched the pages as he becomes her lover.  Though this is not really a BDSM book, there are some mild elements in some of the later scenes between them. 

I liked the way the author also introduces Roland’s brothers and a few other characters.  The dragons that are bonded to knights are just as interesting as the human characters and I am looking forward to reading more in this series.

Publisher’s Note: This book is a re-issue - all of the books in the series will be reissued.
