Publisher's Summary

When a desperate king threatens Dion and everything he loves, only dangerous magic can keep him safe.

Dion, now king of Xanthos, is finally in command of the naval fleet he's always dreamed of. But his hopes for peace are jeopardized when King Palemon, in dire need of ships to rescue his starving people from the frozen wastelands of the north, invades the Salesian city of Malakai.

Too weak to confront Dion directly, Palemon turns to magic: mysterious copper chains from the lost civilization of Aleuthea, which have the potential to control dragons...and Dion.

With the people he loves in danger, and his own freedom at risk, Dion's only hope is Chloe and the power she struggles to tame.

I really wanted this to be the last.

I enjoyed the book and the writing. The narrator remains great! BUT, I really wish the series ended, it would have easily been done and would have made sense the way this book was going, but nope. One paragraph saves the enemy almost like an after thought. Honestly, who knows how many books there will be in this SERIES, at this rate probably 6.

Entertaining

Not my favorite book in the series. It is entertaining but definitely not the strongest in the series.

Spoiler alert

I love the characters but was not happy with the addition of Isabella. It almost seemed as if the author tried too hard to add her and then quickly did away with her when he didn't like how that was going.

Simon Vance is a wonderful performer

The story is bright to life with many characters with Simon Vance as the story teller. As always James Maxwell doesn't disappoint. I highly recommend these books.

Well developed Story puts you in the action!

James Maxwell has a way of transporting you into the story with characters so real that you seem to know them. I am anxiously awaiting Iron Will which will be released on January 18th, 2018!

Good but lacking something

I enjoyed this book like I have the others, but something was lacking. I didn't get drawn in by characters or the story to the extent of the previous books.
