Ward Hurog, lord of the dragon lands is kidnapped by the King's men and brutally tortured - more psychological than physical. Tisala, warrior woman and his soon to be lady love, helps with the rescue attempt and the ensuing war against the insane King. This is book two in the series and a good addition to the tale of Hurog and the Five Kingdoms. The romance is light and sweet between Ward and Tisala - hopefully more to come in the next installment. This is fantasy at it's best blending dragons, mages, war and romance to perfection.
With the same theme as Drac and the Gremlin; this is a picture book about letting your imagination run wild. I love exploring the idea still, with this story taking place down at the beach. However the creatures they 'created' weren't engaging or interesting for me and the illustrations weren't of a style that appealed.
