Review Lords Fall (Elder Races) by Thea Harrison
Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom.In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear…
OH I was worried. I am a HUGE fan of the elder Races series by Ms. Harrison and this, this was the first sequel, or rather the first installment that went back and featured Pia and Dragos, the two that started it all and got me into the series. They were the original cute, hilarious, Wyr, dragonkind, power couple whose difficulties in finding their working relationship feet made for an amazingly charismatic, creative, intriguing, HAWT, romantic, hilarious book. Yea I loved it. Seriously loved it. You get that now.
So i was really really worried, because whenever you read the continuation of a couple that you’ve really come to love and enjoy, its a bit nerve wracking because you hope that the story won’t obscure your enjoyment and love of the first book. It didn’t. If anything Lords Fall made me love Dragos and Pia MORE and made the first book Dragon Bound, even more of a classic in my library because it served to enhance and deepen the relationship that they had with each other and the relationship I had with them as a reader. It was amazing.
Its not often the sequel gets better than the original, but I really feel like this was just as good if not better than the original, if only because Lords Fall simply enhanced and made every part about reading Dragon bound and the rest of the books in the world better.
I don’t know how else to describe it except to say that. Reading this made them all better.
