After thinking his luck hadn't held out again, Mirek is shocked to discover his true wife, Riona, in the woods outside the Breeding festival grounds. Next thing he knows, Riona is in a coma, seemingly having an allergic reaction to the Yellow, flowers that induce sleep. Waking up months later, Riona finds that life has moved on around her, but can she work with her new husband to overcome that? Or will she return to her old ways?

I can't believe that Dragon Lords is over, I really don't want it to be! Let me find out more about the younger generation of Draig, or just something! The Impatient Lord gave an insight into Riona and Mirek's story, but also provided a tie up of the rest of the series, mainly because it took place months later than the rest of the books.

While the other brides all had each other going through a similar time struggling to accept their marriages, Riona had it a bit harder, because when she woke up she was faced with the other three brides in her household already happy in their marriages and moving on with their families. But then Riona had a different attitude from the rest of the brides anyway! Or at least that was the impression that I got.

I liked the relationship between Mirek and Riona. Though their relationship was far from perfect and there were hurdles for them to get over but their attraction, and mutual interests, were never in question. I liked that their feelings grew over the course of a physcial and somewhat emotional journey.

This series has had me wanting to keep reading from the very beginning, and I'm sad thaat it is over! I need more!
