In Goredd women are expected to be prim and proper, men are expected to be protectors, and dragons get to be whatever they want.
Tess is a troublemaker. She makes a scene at her sisters wedding and breaks a relatives nose. Her family plans to send her to a nunnery. Tess runs away and goes on a journey across the Southlands pretending to be a boy.
She doesn’t know where she’s going and with a stroke of luck she runs into an old friend. Her friend, which is a subspecies of dragon, offers her protection on the road. But a secret and her past is a huge burden to carry. The memories she’s trying to forget may expose her to the world.
This book came on a bit slow to me. I wasn’t really a big fan of Tess as a character. This book also gets really dark and heavy to proceed with caution. But this author is a phenomenal writer! Plus holy crap that cover 😍
