Rover is charged with helping Elwin, the thief who stole the book of spells, rescue his sister so that the Rovers pack can retrieve the book and destroy it.  The problem is that Rover is starting to feel something for this “enemy” and he’s not sure if that’s a good thing or bad one.

Rover finally gets his story told in Trailing Air, the fourth book in The Preternaturals series.  As one of my favorite characters in this series, I have been looking forward to him getting a book of his own.  The author did not disappoint and I am sure other fans of this series will like the book just as much.   Trailing Air picks up where the last book ended, the book of spells has been stolen and our good guys have no idea by who or what.  Pavel is still in the hands of Grime and the pack is having trouble locating him.  And no one knows what to do next.  Enter Elwin. 

Elwin is a dragon shifter trying to rescue his sister, who happened to find her way into Grime’s hands.  This character is an interesting one and the thing I loved the most is that he is not the typical dragon shifter.  In fact, I had to go back and read the author’s description of him just to make sure I got it right.  This little change was as refreshing as it is surprising since it was not what I was expecting.  While one of the oldest creatures around, Elwin still has a bit of innocence about him, due to the isolation dragons practice.  This, in my opinion, made him the perfect choice for Rover.

Having experienced rejection before, Rover is cautious of giving his heart away a second time, especially to someone who could be the enemy.  The fact that Rover feels something for Elwin is easy to see even though he is leery of the dragon.  While I liked the chemistry between them, and they do heat up the pages, I thought the shift to lovers happened too fast and would have liked to have seen a little more interaction between them first. 

Their relationship is not without issues, the biggest being Grime and the book of spells.  More about the book is revealed and it is more dangerous than anyone thought.  There is also a little bit of family interference, which is understandable since Elwin is an unknown factor to the pack.  

Several past characters show up to help the men in their quest to destroy Grime and the book.  It was fun seeing them again, especially Bandit and Allen.  The author also did a wonderful job wrapping up this story and did so in a way that leaves you wondering if there will be more stories added to the series or not.
