Summary: (from goodreads) In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two mates find themselves on different paths, torn between their duty to the Wyr and the passion that binds them…

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…

Once again I was in total enthrallment by the magical world this author has created and was left wanting more of their magic, not because it was missing from this book but because I do not want it to end.

The first couple of chapters were read at a slower pace, to bring back memories of the characters and match them to the ones met in previous books (reading previous installments is recommended to better understand this magical world), but once I was back to par I couldn't read fast enough.
In the process to prove to the Wyr Demesne that their leader Dragos and Tia, even as her gift is still kept a secret, belong together and that their bond is stronger and unbreakable, things get crazy. He must go on as normal as possible considering all the changes going on. To prove to the world that Wyr is still strong, the Sentinel Games to replace the two lost sentinels must go on, even when a very pregnant Pia is on a mission to better the relationship with the Elves and restore their treaty in the Elves territory.
While on this mission an old threat comes back and becomes a menace to the world and the Wyr have to step up and help their enemies, even before mending their old trouble which creates an interesting twist. 

While this chapter of the " Elder Races" is full of action, mystery and adventure, there is no shortness of passion, love and lessons that will make the greatest immortal fortify his power and position but also makes him more human, you could say, by giving him the feeling of empathy for others. The baby's debut "Peanut" opens a great introduction to what his great powers will be for the Elder's Races future chapters. Love it!
