Publisher's Summary

In the country of Sohlgain, all young men are expected to chain a dragon and claim its charge. For Berun Toirnach, the eldest son of the nation's ruler, this means venturing onto a dragon reserve and hunting a wild dragon. A tradition his family has upheld for generations.
The aftermath of this hunt will shape Berun's life. He is given a position as a Thunder Priest and gifted the power to control lightning, Berun must decide what to do with this new power. Will he use it selfishly, or will he use it for the benefit of his country?
Years later, in an attempt to escape responsibility for a short time, Berun and his friends take a trip to the idyllic beachside city of Hurthow, where an ancient festival is celebrated by locals and foreigners alike.
But the safety and warmth of the sun and sand is an illusion. Dangerous enemies wait, hiding behind smiles and cold eyes.
Soon the lives of Berun's friends and family are put in danger, and the young prince must rely on his power and his allies, old and new, to save them. His father's most trusted bodyguard, a disgraced assassin known for his skill and ruthless precision. A young God Mage and her companions. And a coward with a power he's afraid to use. All of them will be needed to save those threatened.
But time is against them and their enemies have secrets of their own.

Great Book

I thought this book was great. I thought the magic concepts were new and exciting. the narration could use some help, but at times was OK.

Interesting but frustrating

Any additional comments?

At times the book feels overly juvenile. Details such as naming their currency soul dollars and catch phrases like "Thunder" seemed to detract from this oddly satisfying yet frustrating story. Jakins has created a very interesting world that begs to be discovered, but lacks substance at times. The book is very entertaining.
