a time there lived a dragon who fell in love with Sorcha, a
spellbound sorceress. Though human in nature, she found
herself trapped in the body of a dragon. Caedyrn, black
dragon and heir to the dragonís ice aerie, gave up his
kingdom to be with her. They mated, still in dragon form,
and Sorcha bore six exceptional offspring. Half-dragon,
half-human, Sorchaís children lived in the dragonsí ice
aerie, far from their parents until they were old enough to
master their shape-shifting skills.
where Dragonís Choice picks up the tale.
Aislinn, daughter of Sorcha and Caedyrn, decides to return
to the human world. Navigating the customs of King Leofricís
court, while learning the nuances of human language and
action is no easy task. When she falls in love with the
human prince of a neighboring kingdom, she must determine
whether she is willing to forfeit her place in the aerie for
the love of a mere man.
youngest and most ill brother, Taran, also accompanies her
to court. Never healthy as a dragon, he discovers that as a
human he actually takes after his mother, possessing
wizardís gifts. Since dragon and human magic donít mix well,
it is little wonder he never acquired the strength to
attempt a dragonís mating flight. In the world of the
humans, he finds the most enchanting woman is the one whose
father despises dragons the most. Unfortunately, convincing
Lady Senga that sheís Taran's destined mate is the easiest
task he faces.
between dragons and men holds a fragile peace between the
species. Some, both in King Leofricís and Prince Ewanís
courts, long for the old days where dragon slaying was not
only justified but encouraged. Can Aislinn and Prince Ewan
hold tight to their love while Ewanís father tries to turn
his people against her? Will Senga survive long enough to
escape her fatherís household and marry Taran? Youíll have
to read the story to find out for yourself.
Dragonís Choice is a well-written, passionate tale
guaranteed to satisfy the fantasy-loving romantic. Ms.
Mumfordís depiction of human foibles, emotions, and actions
never rings untrue. The couples, Sorcha and Caedyrn, Aislinn
and Ewan, Senga and Taran, are all completely unique and
equally enchanting. My only wish would be for more tempting
cover art. It certainly doesnít do the story justice. I
can't wait for Book 2. Aislinn's brothers and sisters are
bound to cause trouble!
