It is something to think on and gives her a perilous distinction among her companions. Elizabeth Bennet, Dragon Keeper, accidental guardian of Pemberley the young firedrake, and even more accidentally betrothed of one Fitzwilliam Darcy, would beg to disagree. Banished from her home, her marriage indefinitely delayed, and desperate to secure Pemberley's future, Elizabeth must tame a rogue dragon who is determined that she is the last Dragon Keeper in the world whom he would ever accept.Darcy cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or thewords, which upended every expectation he had for his future.

But he never expected for that future to be stayedwhilst he was called so very far away from her, caught in the middle of keeping the fragile peace between dragons and humans. Darcy discovers a treacherous plot against Elizabeth. More shocking, the heart of the conspiracy beats in someone very near and dear to her.With war on the horizon, time is running out for Elizabeth and Darcy to save the dragons and any hope of a future together.Meryton meets Pern in a fantastical regency romp bound to delight readers of Jane Austen and Anne McCaffrey alike. Book 3 in the Jane Austen's Dragons series.
Maria Grace has created an entertaining world with engaging characters, both human and dragon, that you come to care about enough to wish to learn their outcomes. There is just enough romance thrown in to keep the Darcy and Lizzy theme going, but most of all, this is a dragon story. The human characters are given a back seat to all the Dragon intrigues, and there are many intrigues. It’s hard to believe the humans have time for anything other than keeping their Dragon friends happy and fed, so demanding are all the different species of dragons, each with their unique wants and needs. Jane Austen’s Dragon series is a fantastic story, and the audiobook is an excellent showcase of the special series.
