Quick Thought (or not)
Yes, I read another HoN novella. These are actually fun to read because we get a more in depth look at some of our side, adult characters, and how they came to be associated with the house of night. Dragon's story starts off in present day, and then it goes into how he made an oath to his love.
It was like most novellas and kind of trotted along. Which is actually fine with me. his one went from Dragon being at home, to thrown on the HoN ship, to the new world, to becoming a swords master and falling for Anastasia.
I can never remember much about the professors in the HoN series so to be able to go back and read about the past and learn about them was nice. Dragon is a warrior on the outside, but inside he's this gentle boy. During his youth he was arrogant, and cocky, and to be honest I would have loved nothing more then to put him in his place. I think Anastasia did a very good job at that.
I thought this novella was going to be just about Dragon Lankford, but it was more his and Anastasia's story
The ending was a bit sad, but it shaped Dragon into the person he is now.
