Synopsis: Oliza Shardae Cobriana is heir to Wyvern’s Court, home of the avians and serpiente, whose war with each other ended just before Oliza was born. But hatred is slow to die, and not everyone likes the expressive way in which Urban, a serpiente dancer, is courting Oliza–especially not Marus, her reserved avian suitor. And when Urban is found beaten in avian land, Oliza is filled with despair. How can she be expected to lead a unified society if her people still cannot live peacefully together?
Before Oliza can try to mend the rift in Wyvern’s Court, she is kidnapped by mercenaries, who take her deep into wolves’ territory. As Wyvern princess, all Oliza has ever wanted is to see a future where she can find love and take a mate without inciting another war. The time is now. She owes it to her people–and to herself.
Sequel to: Falcondance
Again, I found it hard to get into. The first book was amazing – and the series went a little downhill, as far as the writing style.
That said, the story continues to impress and surprise me. A plot this detailed takes time to think out, and I love how well Amelia Atwater-Rhodes did it. I honestly think that even though the beginnings may be slow, this is a series worth seeing through to the end.
And speaking of endings…
Amazing climax and ending. It caught me totally off-guard – I just loved it! You come up with all these possibilities of how it could end, but all of them get mentioned and shot down at some point, so this ending totally surprises you.
I honestly still cannot get over this, and I finished the book a few days ago. It’s incredible.
I was originally going to give Wolfcry a 3/5, but I loved the ending so much I had to bump it up to a 4/5.
Looking forward to the last book!
