Summary: [Goodreads]
Dragon’s Oath tells the story behind the House of Night’s formidable fencing instructor – the love that will transform him, and the promise that will haunt him.
In early 19th century England, long before he’s a professor at the Tulsa House of Night, Bryan Lankford is a troublesome yet talented human teen who thinks he can get away with anything… until his father, a wealthy nobleman, has finally had enough, and banishes him to America. When Bryan is Marked on the docks and given the choice between the London House of Night and the dragon-prowed ship to America, he chooses the Dragon – and a brand new fate.
Becoming a Fledgling may be exciting, but it opens a door to a dangerous world...In 1830’s St. Louis, the Gateway to the West, Dragon Lankford becomes a Sword Master, and soon realizes there are both frightening challenges and beautiful perks. Like Anastasia, the captivating young Professor of Spells and Rituals at the Tower Grove House of Night, who really should have nothing to do with a fledgling...
But when a dark power threatens, Dragon is caught in its focus. Though his uncanny fighting skills make him a powerful fledgling, is he strong enough to ward off evil, while protecting Anastasia as well? Will his choices save her—or destroy them all?
My thoughts (Lisseth):
"This was such an insightful, action-packed, sweet, and quick read!
Contrary to many I LOVE the House of Night Series! Although it may be a bit long. I normally don't read novellas BUT i just wanted to learn more about Dragon and how he ended up a vampire and at Tulsa. PLUS the cover is SO BEAUTIFUL!
I really enjoyed this book A LOT! It gave me insight into Dragon the young man and Sword Master. I learned that he had a rough past and was a completely different person from the person he was in the present.
I LOVED the romance between him and Anastasia. It was so SWEET. She was a challenge for him and that they both meet by accident was nice. I just thought that she brought out his good side not just his fierceness. I also loved that both POV's were included in the book.
Their is a lot of action and intense emotions. Well he is a master swordsman so lots of sword fighting. Their was also an evil which was unleashed and took Anastasia & he had to save her & I loved that he thought he wouldn't make it. They were just SO deeply in love that it made their separation harder to experience in the House of Night books.
You also feel for Dragon because it ends with him holding Anastasia's necklace that holds a strand of hair, a sunflower, and a message for him to NOT give up without her. She tamed him and she new that she would leave sooner than him. (tears) and then he leaves the prier & chooses to embrace the dark. AH! >__< I would have thought he would have reconsidered & joined Zoey & her crew.
Overall I LOVED this book! It was fast & interesting PLUS did i mention it has AWESOME drawings, like these:
I definitively recommend it for House of Night fans!!! So I give it 5/5 golden feathers!
