Letitu was his aunt and asking Gaius why he himself must fight instead of sending his men and dragons and leaving his twin to rule. Aggie had been caught and held by her cousin Vateria for five long years. Noone knew what Aggie went through but there were nights she did not sleep or she woke up screaming. Aggie grabbed her brother and asked what he ahd done as Mi-runach which were warriors who only answered to the Dragon Queen. This story was just to busy for me. All these characters are brought in and just got me confused. I got some parts of the story but I just got bored tying- or trying to- everything together. I usually love dragon stories but this one not so much. I had not read the other stories in this series or I might not have been so confused.but also this didn’t have the WOW factor for me that kept me reading or wanting to read.
