Trystan is an unchosen angel—shunned by society, bullied, and without a future. In a hidden well, Trystan discovers a carving of a dragon, who were once the commanders of demons and now believed extinct. But Trystan learns the carving doesn’t depict an ordinary dragon. Stories tell that millennia ago, the great dragon Asagoroth and his demon army nearly conquered the three realms but was killed by the five elders. The powerful angels combined their life forces to cast a spell, sacrificing their lives.
But history is full of falsehoods. The five elders only managed to imprison the dragon, and Asagoroth had cast his own spell—one of releasement. It only needs the blood of an angel to liberate him from his cage….
Asagoroth, enemy of angels, conqueror of realms, is free. But even as the angels prepare for war, the great dragon surprises them with an ultimatum: hand over the angel who awakened him or face annihilation.
I really enjoyed both the story and the narration!
I loved how Trystan, though either ignored or bullied and tormented his entire life, with the exception of his sister, finds his true mate in Asagoroth, a dragon feared by all Angels.
Told entirely from Trystan’s POV, I loved how Proczko conveyed the loneliness and frustration with life that Trystan feels.
I loved how fierce a protector Asagoroth was, and how much he did out of love for Trystan. This has such great Fantasy elements as well as a really passionate romance between Trystan and his Dragon.
“Trystan, all my power, all my strength, I give to you. They are yours to command. I am yours. That was a decision I made a millennium ago.”
I especially loved how there was no real religious sermonizing in the story, just a beautiful mates romance between angel and dragon.
“We are meant to be together. Always and forever. You are my angel. I am your dragon.”
Pavi Proczko is a new-to-me narrator, but I enjoyed his varied character voices, his timing, pacing, and inflection. I’ll definitely be checking out some of his other work.
