Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Defying the laws of the Dragon Temple that rules her people, Zarq Darquel has acquired a dragon estate of her own as a safe harbor from those who wish to imprison her for her actions. Pursued relentlessly by her former overlord, however, Zarq abandons her sanctuary and flees with some of her female dragons into the jungle, where she hopes to uncover an ancient secret of the dragons that will help her bring down the oppressive Dragon Temple and her corrupt overlord. Wrapping up the tale started in Touched by Venomand continued in Shadowed by Wings, Aurora Award nominee Cross combines an unusual approach to dragons and dragon lore with strong characters and an exotic, tribal culture. With particular appeal to fans of dragon-based literature, this book, along with its series predecessors, belongs in most libraries.

    Awonderful over the top saga

    Though the Dragon Temple forbids females from owning property, Zarq Darquel ignores the tenet. Instead she makes a home for herself by purchasing a dragon-egg producing farm in Clutch Xxamer Zu. She also struggles with her craving for addictive dragon venom while finding herself nurturing the young victims of the repressive regime.------------- Meanwhile her former overlord Waikar Re Kratt, outraged by her behavior even before she defied the ruling paternal oligarchy, is coming for her. He wants her incarcerated at the least but his real goal is to see her dead. Forced to react, Zarq flees into the jungle lair of the dragons where accompanied by her female dragons, she seeks an ancient power to defeat Kratt and his male priestly supporters of the status quo.---------------- The final book of the Dragon Temple fantasy trilogy (see TOUCHED BY VENOM and SHADOWED BY WINGS) is a vivid dark fantasy starring an intriguing heroine struggling with an addiction yet ironically her only hope to survive is using the venom that she craves. The story line is action-packed as Zarq lands in one nasty escapade after another. While not for everyone as this tale and miniseries is graphic, Janine Cross provides a deep look at the crippling impact of sexism, racism, slavery, addiction, and oppression in a wonderful over the top saga.---------------- Harriet Klausner
