This short little novella takes us into the past. The book opens with the events at the end of Awakened in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Shortly thereafter, we are swooshed to the year 1830, location: England. We get a glimpse of Dragon as a human. Human Dragon doesn’t seem entirely likeable as vampire Dragon. He is extremely arrogant, cocky and more than a little annoying. He is being shipped to the New World by his father, although he meets a different fate at the docks than the one his father envisioned for him.

The novel mostly focuses on Dragon and Anastasia. It is the revelation of their love story and of an oath that Dragon made that changes the course of fate. We get a glimpse of the Raven Mockers before they were Raven Mockers and of the White Bull in action.

The novella adds another layer to the series. I do enjoy my flashbacks and getting to see how things thread together. However, it is quite small and short and nothing more than a tasty snack of a book. It has delightful illustrations marking each chapter and a tattoo design interspersed throughout separating chunks of the story.
