Kithric, an aging dragon tamer, leads a solitary life atop his mountain, until the day he accidentally traps a dragon that is more than he seems. Expecting to be killed for capturing a dragon shifter, Kithric instead finds himself spared and left to deal with his continued solitude.
He finds he can’t be rid of Ylfrin the dragon shifter that easily, though, and as Ylfrin continues to return, bit by bit Kithric begins to fall for him and starts to value using what life he has left to the fullest. But before he and Ylfrin can explore their feelings, they must first confront dangers and corrupt forces encroaching from outside Kithric’s Mountain.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Daily Dose package "Never Too Late."

Okay, this story had a few unique elements. We have Kithric our ‘older’ character, but when we get to know Ylfrin, we find out he’s much older, though we never quite find out how old he actually is. It’s kind of an amazing tale of a man willing to give up and finding the one who makes him want to fight on. Two old men willing to battle it out for each other gets 4 stars. Though I do wonder what they’re gonna do when the people come back. Reviewed by a-nony-mouse for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy provided for review*
