Publisher Comments:

Sweeping readers along at a breakneck speed with breathtaking imagery and effortlessly readable prose, Ms. Bertin has created a thrilling new mythos, fresh in conception and filled with the joy of discovery, scope and enchanting to read, with characters who Will instantly steal readers' heart. The Last Dragonlord is destined to become a sensation among fantasy readers.

As never before, we are present in the society of were-dragons. Linden, the eponymous hero and youngest of the Dragonlords, is an extraordinary magical creature who can shapechange from human to dragon and back again. Tragically, among the Dragonlords he is the only one of his kind never to have found his soulmate.

Now the Queen of one of the Dragonlords' subject realms has drowned under suspicious circumstances, and two aspiring regents vie for control of the vacant throne. But a secret society, headed by a sinister mage, has their own dark plans, and a beautiful young sea captain who becomes romantically involved with Linden may fall victim to their fiendish plot. When Linden finds himself trapped by their deadly magic, he realizes that he might end up being the last dragonlord — ever.

No simple plot summary can convey the power of this exciting debut, which evokes visions of such masters as Mercedes Lackey, Anne McCaffrey, and Melanie Rawn.

Synopsis:

Dragonlord Linden Rathan, last-born of a race of immortal weredragons, has spent six hundred years alone, searching for his soultwin while his fellow Dragonlords watch over humanity's Five Kingdoms.

When the Queen of Cassori dies mysteriously, Linden and the other Dragonlords are called upon to prevent civil war as two human claimants vie for the regency.

As the battle for Cassori rule escalates, Linden becomes the target of the Fellowship, a secret society of true-humans who could actually destroy his immortal life.

Then he meets a beautiful young ship captain named Maurynna who may be the only one who can help Linden bring Cassori back from the brink of chaos.
