Overall it was an okay finish to the series although the ending of the Book felt lacking and incomplete. You can tell the author was ready to come to a close and didn't exactly tie up loose ends in a detailed manner. But having already read the next trilogy I know the author did this intentionally, so keep reading the next 3 books and you won't be disappointed. I hope Hollywood never gets their hands on this entire storyline because I love it too much to see them massacre it on the big screen.
I loved this series when I discovered it over a decade ago, and I'm pleased that the publisher was smart enough to finally offer an e-book version of Melanie Rawn's finest (completed) series to date.
This is the third and final installment in the series, and although it was marketed as a trilogy, the ending is a cliffhanger that takes you into the next trilogy (the Dragon Star Trilogy), which in my opinion was good, but not as good as this one .
I loved all three books, and the only real gripe I had was the rushed ending.
I really felt that the romance between Meiglan and Pol could have been better developed. In the end, their "shotgun" wedding was two or three sentences. I thought that, considering Pol was the most important character in the book, it should have been handled better. I also thought that Andry's excessive babymaking (the implication that he would father dozens upon dozens of children with various underage and unmarried mothers was a bit much). That, coupled with his penchant for murder, made his character even more unlikeable than I would have imagined.

This is the second book in the Dragon Prince series by Melanie Rawn. It is absolutely just as good as the first book in this series. If you love Dragons and being swept up in a story then this is the series for you.
I love Melanie Rawn's older books, the Dragon Princes trilogies and the Mageborn "Trilogy". If you love fantasy and haven't read these, start here:
. Dragons, magic, princes, sorcerers and more, these books have it all.
I loved these books as a young girl. My older son is autistic and loves dragons as well as loves to read even though he struggles with it. He is about halfway into the first book and loving it as well.
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat continuation of the story.

Well written. If you've read the previous books, you won't want to miss this one. Melanie Rawn faithfully continues each character's personality in every new work. She even makes the villains sometimes have a redeeming quality or two.
If you like Robin Hobb, Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Patrick Rothfuss and other writers of similar style ilk, you'll really enjoy the Dragon Prince series. I read the 1st trilogy (Dragon Prince, Sunrunners Fire, Star Scroll) and enjoyed it enough to buy the follow up trilogy, so it must have been OK. Some slick dialogue and intriguing relationships that are neatly and effectively developed. They are easy paced reads and lack long intricately described show piece moments eg pitched battles that roll on for days as in some of the Brooks and Eddings novels, but I didnt mind that. I enjoyed the fact that many of the key intense moments were on a more personal level.
