Summary of the Book:

For twenty-seven hopefuls, discovering a mate-bond with Dragonwall’s princess offers a chance to gain the crown.

When King Cornan issues a summons, hopefuls flock to the capital to try their luck with the princess. Lena wants absolutely nothing to do with them, but she understands the rules of Dragonwall’s Charter. If she fails to find her mate by the age of eighteen, she must relinquish the crown. All she has trained for will be lost.

Fate deals Lena a terrible blow. Then a mysterious stranger appears to compete for the crown, with pearlescent dragon scales and smoldering green eyes. Tristan’s name is on everyone’s lips, even Lena’s. As she gets to know him, she begins to question everything. Perhaps the life she has always wanted might not compare to the unimaginable future Tristan has to offer.

The Selection meets Gladiator in this sweeping tale about unexpected love.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. Lena is a the crown princess and she has been trained to rule her kingdom, but to hold on to it she has to find her mate among the dragons. That is what actually drew me to this book was the mention of dragons. There is just something that draws me in and wants to learn more about their world. There is a lot of pressure on Lena’s shoulders and she is a warrior and she is not going to go down without a fight. The world is amazing and the characters want to know more about them. This only the first book in a series. I love Tristian and wonder what decision Lena will make. I will have to read the next book to find that out.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
