I think this is a great world with dragons that live with humans. When I read the first book, I thought was more of a UF, because that is how the story read. More action that a standard PNR novel. I think this world is great.
In this story, there is a huge difference from most PNR novels. Both hero and heroine are human. Still makes for a great story as they deal with the dragon world.
We have the heroine who has been charged with treason against dragons. She is not able to return home. A journalist who believes she is not the one at fault has offered to help research who the real traitor is. He only wants the exclusive story. They decide to hide out in India and pretend to be a married couple while trying to research in a particular dragon's territory.
Although, this story seemed a little slow in the beginning, it really picks up. I think the overall story is better than the first book. You can see how the author's abilities have improved over book one. I can't wait to get to book three. I have no idea who the hero and heroine will be, but the world is so interesting, I just can't wait to get more of it.
