Dragon Prince Ewan has promised his beloved, Shannon, that he will become a man again or die in the attempt. Now he will do anything to make good on that promise.
With the aid of his scholarly friend, Martin, Ewan consults the great Dragon Queen Harviss, who offers him a unique solution: return to the past to find Ewan's Fey ancestor and beg for her help.
This fourth and final novel in the Dragon and the Scholar series contains a brilliantly-written dual plot (is there a better way to say "two subplots woven into one story?") that is equal parts frustrating and captivating.
First off, the fey: terrifyingly fascinating and just all-around awesome. I love their lack of respect for physics and how they explain this mentality. Meeting this race made the time travel--something I don't usually like--worth it.
Aside from time travel, I think the most frustrating part was how Ewan and Shannon handled being separated from each other. Or perhaps the loose ends still dangling after the last page. For instance, why did Acacia come squealing for Will? She was introduced as such a strong and interesting character, but dropped off the pages once her purpose was spent.
