Drake returns home to Draconia with some intelligence regarding the younger princes.  The dragon that wants to bond with him is still waiting, Drake runs into his childhood friend and runs into a guardsman that he attracted to. 

The latest story in the Dragon Knights series takes us on a journey that involves time manipulation, along with introducing new characters and species into the story.  Firedrake also gives some history about the wizards that seemed to be banished or extinct. 

This book is actually my favorite so far.  There were quite a few twists and turns that keep the suspense going.  Since each knight bonds with his dragon and the dragons can’t mate with each other without their knights finding their one for a triad relationship, I loved the reasons given for the bonding between Drake, Mace and Krysta. I think most of us can empathize with Drake, especially since he gets thrown a major curveball about his heritage.  There are some lighthearted moments between them, as well as some good natured ribbing that comes from longtime childhood friends. 

The author also described a wonderful training scene between Krysta and a fey warrior and their practice with fans.  The author did some research about some more exotic weapons for this one.  The fact that the kidnapped prince is now five years older within five days was an interesting concept within this story.  I would have liked a little more information about his training and some of the other characters on the Island

The war is heating up and I am waiting for the next book.  There are so many threads that can lead to different adventures.  I had not read these books before and am enjoying this series greatly.
