I have long been a Sherrilyn Kenyon fan and continue to be one.  Although the newest series did not live up to my expectations, I am a fan of her worlds.  I love the complex mythology and am constantly amazed by how varied her world has become.  It is a vast network of various mythologies and yet somehow they all seamlessly interact.  This is truly an amazing feat given that Egyptian and Greek and Sumerian Pantheons were never meant to mix.  This book promised explanations of Falcyn’s origins and perhaps even his orneriness.  This book did indeed explain Falcyon and his surliness.

I love the Dark Hunter world as well as the Were Hunter and Lords of Avalon worlds.  I loved this book, as it returns to the stories that are as typical as a book by Sherrilyn Kenyon can be in that they are all atypical.  This book was a little bit difficult for me as there are so very many story lines and interrelationships to try and keep straight.  Even using the website as a cheat sheet, when the Lords of Avalon, dragon, were hunters and dark hunter worlds intersect things can become complicated and this book added in the Apollites as well.  Put a cameo in by Simi and you have all the parts of Kenyon’s world in one place.   It seems that this book may be a two for one in that Blaise makes a romantic connection as well.

So, my review of this book is overwhelmingly positive.  My only complaint is that I have trouble keeping everything straight and that is a failing on my part but given that we book 28 and the length of some of those novels, I’m going to give myself a break.  And admit I used Sherrilyn Kenyon.com as a cheat sheet when I got a little confused, but I figure that is why the character directory is there.

There is nothing in the universe the cursed dragon, Falcyn, hates more than humanity . . . except Greek humans. In a war he wanted no part of, they systematically destroyed everything he’d ever cared for. Now he waits for the day when evolution will finally rid him of the human vermin. Medea was born the granddaughter of the Greek god Apollo, and among the first of his people that he cursed to die. But she will not let anyone rule her life. Not even her notorious grandfather. And when Apollo sends a new plague to destroy what remains of her people, she refuses to stand by and watch him take everything she loves from her again. This time, she knows of a secret weapon that can stop the ancient god and his army of demons. Once and for all. However, said device is in the hands of a dragon who wants nothing to do with politics, the gods, humanity, demons or Apollites. And especially not her. He is the immovable object. She is the unstoppable force . . . When Apollo makes a strategic move that backfires, he forces Falcyn back into play. Now Medea either has the weapon she needs to save her people, or she’s unleashed total Armageddon. If she can’t find some way to control the dragon before it’s too late, Falcyn will be an even worse plague on the world than the one Apollo has set loose. But how can anyone control a demonic dragon whose sole birthright is world annihilation?
