Review – Dragon in the Blood (Vale of Stars #2) by Juliette Cross

While all seems quiet in Gladium Province, the Morgon Guard—the global justice force for the dragon hybrid race—knows their enemy is rebuilding its forces in the underground.

Valla Moonring, an assassin for an order of the Morgon Guard, is ordered to join an expedition through the Wastelands of Aria, a formidable, icy wilderness fraught with all manner of dangers, including outlaws, deadly weather, and big-game predators.

To her great distaste, she’s partnered with a Nightwing Security operative, Conn Rowanflame, a Morgon with the aggravating ability to get under her skin. While she takes her mission seriously, Conn’s confident charm throws her off balance, a dangerous place to be in conditions like these. Especially when cold nights require close contact.

Sensual attraction binds them ever closer, igniting a passion of unexpected force—soulfire. But when the hunters become the hunted, their bond could prove perilous. Even fatal…

What do can I say about the second installment to a series I’ve had a serious book hangover from? HOLY MOTHER MOON!!!! Are you seriously leaving me with another book hangover that just might throw me over the edge if I don’t get the next one stat? SERIOUSLY??? I hate loving you so much right now. Sigh………………….

In the first installment of Vale of Stars, we met Valla, sister to Kol and his twin, who was in training to become an Assassin of the Guard. What we missed from the first was everything…Valla. We truly only got a glimpse of her, but get the full picture in this one. Of course it took the dominant yet gentle hand of Conn to get the real Valla to emerge. Conn was the Morgon from the first installment who clearly got under Valla’s wings. At first, we think it’s just because the two are warriors and felt challenged by the other. But OH NO, nope, that’s not the case at all. In fact, we find out just what the true “issue” is and it’s mostly Conn who we get the description from.

This story continues the search of finding the Blood King, the slaves and what the prophecy REALLY means. Valla, Conn and Bowen are the team sent by the Guard to find the witch sisters (providence) to question them about a missing sister that may be helping this Blood King. But in order to get to the providence, they must travel through Aria, where Morgan outlaws and a few unknown creature have flocked to hide and live, away from the Morgon rules. We’re taken through a wonderful journey, not only through Aria, but in discovering what the truth is behind Conn and Valla’s “discomfort” with one another.

I’m in completely and utter infatuation with this world and series. I love everything Moonring and Morgon Guard. I love the how Conn flamedances and I absolutely LOVE the meaning of soulfire and what it represents. And oh my goodness, once you complete the book, look back at the cover. You’ll truly see SO MUCH of the book within just this simple cover that speaks VOLUMES!

I’m in love and I’m not afraid to admit it.
