When two warring kingdoms unified against a deadly menace laying waste to both their lands, they had to make a choice: vow to marry their heirs to one another, or forfeit their lives to the dragon.
Centuries later, everyone expects the sheltered princess Sorrowlynn to choose the barbarian prince over the fire-breathing beast—everyone, that is, except Sorrow, who is determined to control her own destiny or die trying.
As she is lowered into the dragon’s chamber, she assumes her life is over until Golmarr, the young prince she just spurned, follows her with the hopes of being her hero and slaying the dragon. But the dragon has a different plan. . . .
If the dragon wins, it will be freed from the spell that has bound it to the cave for centuries. If Sorrow or Golmarr vanquish the dragon, the victor will gain its treasure and escape the cave beneath the mountain. But what exactly is the dragon hiding?
There are no safe havens for Sorrow or Golmarr—not even with each other—and the stakes couldn’t be higher as they risk everything to protect their kingdom.

My Thoughts...I loved the storyline, the characters, and the romance! The pacing was a tad slow so it did take me quite a few days to get through this one. About 60% of the way in though it really picked up and I read the remainder in one sitting!
My favorite thing about this book was the romance. It certainly has a Cinderella/Ever After vibe going on. Imagine if Cinderella knew how to fight, well that's Sorrowlynn, the main character in this book. Golmarr is absolutely perfect for her!
I will say that I did guess the ending pretty early on. I was a little disappointed but on the plus side, I like the direction that book two will be going in!
