Publisher Comments:

In the remote hills of northern England lives a powerful clan with a centuries-old secret. They are the drakon, shape-shifters who possess the ability to Turn — changing from human to smoke to dragon. And from the very stones of the earth, they hear hypnotic songs of beauty and wonder. But there is one stone they fear....

Buried deep within the bowels of the Carpathian Mountains lies the legendary dreaming diamond known as Draumr, the only gem with the power to enslave the drakon. Since childhood, Lady Amalia Langford, daughter of the clan's Alpha, has heard its haunting ballad but kept it secret, along with another rare Gift....

Lia can hear the future, much in the way she hears the call of Draumr. And in that future, she realizes that the diamond — along with the fate of the drakon — rests in the hands of a human man, one who straddles two worlds.

Ruthlessly clever, Zane has risen through London's criminal underworld to become its ruler. Once a street urchin saved by Lia's mother, Zane is also privy to the secrets of the clan — and is the only human they trust to bring them Draumr. But he does nothing selflessly.

Zane's hunt for the gem takes him to Hungary, where he is shocked to encounter a bold, beautiful young noblewoman: Lia. She has broken every rule of the drakon to join him, driven by the urgent song of Draumr — and her visions of Zane. In one future, he is her ally. In another, her overlord. In both, he is her lover. Now, to protect her tribe, Lia must tie her fate to Zane's, to the one man capable of stealing her future — and destroying her heart....

Review:

"Set in 18th-century England and the Carpathian Mountains, Abé's lively sequel to The Smoke Thief continues the saga of the drákon (or 'dragon-people'), 'magnificent, terrifying creatures who have the ability to exist as humans but may transform into dragons at will, especially at night.' Zane, a handsome thief, and the Lady Amalia 'Lia' Langford, who can see the future, join forces to search for the lost Draumr, a dangerous jewel that can control the drákon. Zane, a delicious anti-hero, finds himself captivated by the delightful Lia, who has been dreaming precognitively about him for years, certain that Zane is her destiny, though he might cause future problems for the drákon. When Lia finally 'Turns,' first into smoke, then into full drákon power, their passion for each other is tested in an exciting, fire-breathing resolution. Paranormal romance fans will be well rewarded." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

This is the second book in the series by Shana Abe about the Drakon, a race of dragons who live as humans on the outskirts of society in 18th Century England. In the first book, we meet Rue, a seemingly powerless "halfling" who has fled from the Drakon in order to live independently among humans.
In this story we follow the path of Lia, one of Rue's daughters. Like Rue, Lia is not fully accepted among her own kind. The have little expectations for her power and this prompts her to go on a quest to try help her people.
Fans of this series will not be disappointed. Romance, adventure, and plenty of magic make this an enjoyable read.
