They say a Rider in possession of a good blade must be in want of a monster to slay - and Merybourne Manor has plenty of monsters. Passionate, headstrong Aliza Bentaine knows this all too well; she’s already lost one sister to the invading gryphons. So when Lord Merybourne hires a band of Riders to hunt down the horde, Aliza is relieved her home will soon be safe again.
Her relief is short-lived. With the arrival of the haughty and handsome dragonrider Alastair Daired, Aliza expects a battle; what she doesn’t expect is a romantic clash of wills, pitting words and wit against the pride of an ancient house. Nor does she anticipate the mystery that follows them from Merybourne Manor, its roots running deep as the foundations of the kingdom itself, where something old and dreadful slumbers...something far more sinister than gryphons.
It’s a war Aliza is ill prepared to wage, on a battlefield she’s never known before: one spanning kingdoms, class lines, and the curious nature of her own heart.
Elle Katharine White infuses elements of Austen’s beloved novel with her own brand of magic, crafting a modern epic fantasy that conjures a familiar yet wondrously unique new world.

An mildly entertaining romance with dragons added
The reader saved the tale. I found it easy listening and a relaxing change of pace from the daily grind. But it is not great literature or even especially well written. The characters' reactions to the death of loved ones seemed a bit cold and heartless. But on the other hand, this somewhat mitigated the fear factor of being killed by a gryphon. The lead character is a feisty young woman, who is quite intriguing and that really added to my enjoyment of the story.
