Sometimes what you don’t do can destroy you.
Alor survived the god’s purge that took the lives of all dragons. Or most of them, anyway. He vowed to bond to human and allow him to guide the future of the people they ruled over.
But power corrupts, and after generations, the humans that rule don’t act much differently than the dragons they replaced.
When Alor’s bond mate is murdered, he finds comfort with Evie, a beautiful maid that is as unlike the men he’s bonded to as a flower-filled valley is to a mountain peak.
But love and happiness are ephemeral dreams, reserved for humans and not the dragons that rule them. Or so the Dark Gods want him to think.
As the truth of his bond mate’s murder is revealed, Alor faces his dragon nature and must decide between the woman he loves and the people he rules.
