Fire’s Edge #4
The cousin of the High King, Lyndi Chandali has lived with the constant threat of being pawned off as a political prize. A rare, female-born dragon like Lyndi can’t truly mate—not in the way it counts. Which is why she’s kept her distance from a certain sinfully delicious Beta. Instead, she’s built a life for herself giving orphaned dragons in the Americas a home.
As Beta of his team of enforcers, Levi Rowtag is a fighter first, last, and always. His job is to protect—his team, the shifters in his territory, and the stubborn woman hell-bent on fighting with him at every turn. He knows from the moment they first meet what she’ll never accept—they are destined to be mated.
But with the kings at war, the enemy is now coming for Lyndi. Worse, he’s coming for her orphans, too. He’ll have no choice but to defy his king and go rogue if he has any hope of protecting them all…and finally claiming his mate.
I had to re-read this series before diving into The Protector. I’ve been soooo curious about Lyndi’s and Levi’s story. There was so much working against them, but I wanted their happily ever after more than anything. And it brought up a lot of questions of if it would be possible for them to be together.
When it comes to most romance I’ve read, it tends to be the hero that makes rash decisions for their counterpart, but it was rather surprising to see it from the heroine. I don’t know why that stood out to me, but it just did.
The politics of mates is what has irked me the most with this series and I’m sure I’m not alone in that. I’m beyond for that to end and as we get through each book in the series, we’re getting closer to a resolution of all the corruption.
I loved getting to know Lyndi and Levi more, as well as seeing all of my favorites through the series. These two have had a strong connection for a decade, but never choosing to act on it. Levi would do absolutely anything for Lyndi and my goodness, she held back for so long..
With everything they faced along the way, I was completely satisfied with their story. I definitely need to see more of them in the next book, which I’m rather eager to get to.
Love this series by Abigail!
