Overview

An elite forces officer with a dreadful reputation.
A bookish paleontologist with a love for mysteries.
An ancient stronghold full of secrets that will take both of them to unearth.

Professor Lilah Zirkander (yes, she's related to the famous pilot, and no, she can't get him to autograph your undergarments) is looking forward to a summer in the paleontology lab, researching and cataloging new fossils. But that summer takes an unexpected turn when the king sends her into the Ice Blades to a secret mine where ancient dragon bones have been discovered. Rumor has it that they're cursed and dangerous, but Lilah is more concerned about dealing with the outpost commander, a fierce officer with the temperament of a crabby badger.

As punishment for irking the king, Colonel Vann Therrik is overseeing the hardened criminals working in the remote Magroth Crystal Mines. He would like a chance to redeem himself--and escape the loathsome duty station--but nothing is going his way. Cursed fossils have delayed production, miners are trying to escape, and now a scientist has shown up, making demands on his time. Worse, she's the cousin of his nemesis General Zirkander. As if one Zirkander in his world wasn't bad enough.

Investigating the fossils leads Lilah and Vann into the depths of Magroth Mountain where centuries-old secrets lurk, and a long-forgotten threat stalks the passages. To have any chance at survival, they'll have to work together and perhaps learn that neither is what the other expected.

Shattered Past is a stand-alone novel set in the author's Dragon Blood world.

I love all of Lindsay Buroker's books, but I'm especially looking forward to the next in this series. I found the new story incredibly entertaining. Lilah definitely changed my opinion of Therrick and I always love the side remarks whether they are from Jaxi or Kaika.

This is an excellent read. Great character development, plenty of action, and romantic element, too. This is a stand alone, but the tie in with the series is well done. All in all a fun read! I highly recommend the entire series.

Introduced to family characters from earlier stories, and more history brought to light.

I enjoyed reading the entire series! I still think that there can be more books in the series/saga. Will anything more be found in those caves at the outpost? Will there be more sorceresses found?

I have read the whole series and it is awesome it keeps you wanting and is very hard to put down. I look forward to more.

Who would have thought the bristly, unlikeable Colonel Therrik would turn out to be a romantic hero? My only complaint is this book is too short. I hope this isn't the last we see of Lilah and Vann. Thanks for another winner, Lindsay Buroker!
