Genre: Fantasy, Dragons, Paranormal

 On a hike deep in the Rocky Mountains, Kai Monahan watches as a dozen dragons—actual freaking dragons—battle beneath a fat white moon. When one crashes nearly dead at her feet and transforms into a man, Kai does the only thing a decent person could: she grabs the nearest sword and saves his life.

As the dragon/man, Rhys, recovers from the attack, a chance brush of skin against skin binds him inextricably to Kai. Becoming heartsworn to a human—especially such a compelling one—is the last thing Rhys wants. But with an ancient enemy gathering to pit dragons against humanity and his strength nearly depleted, Kai has just become the one thing Rhys needs. A complete bond will give him the strength to fight; a denied bond means certain death.

Kai is terrified at the thought of allowing any dragon into her mind…or her heart. Accepting the heartswearing and staying with the dragons means sacrificing everything, and Kai must decide if her freedom is worth risking Rhys’s life—a life more crucial to the fate of humanity than she could possibly know.

This book was a real quick read. I enjoyed it but something was missing for me. For me this book needed more romance, more swoon, it just needed more for me. I mean you can’t find your soulmate just by touching skin…..

This book is about a human girl that stumbled upon a girl who was hurt. Kai decided to help the girl and the girl took her to a camp of dragons. The girl wanted to warn her brother about an enemy group of dragons; because that enemy group of dragons were near.  When Rhys, the brother of the girl got hurt; Kai decided to help Rhys. She saved him but the group of dragons took her away to a cave. They promised to take her home but things changed through out the book. Unexpected things…..

I think this book was good but you must read the other books in the series for this book to feel finished. This book ended at a huge cliffhanger that left me wanting more, I want to know if there will be any romance in the other books that will make a person swoon, because I really hope so!!
