Prism recently reviewed Alliance (Torsere #3). You can find the review here.
King Ryneq and his dragon rider consort, Nykin, return to Torsere to defend the kingdom against the lowland armies already camped along Torsere’s borders. Seran wants the dragons, and with a new witch in his ranks, war is inevitable.
With the elves of Hervath now helping them, Ryneq has a chance at holding Seran at bay. But the witch is using old dark magic, and as Nykin and the dragon riders battle her deadly attack, unexpected betrayal forces Ryneq to make a difficult decision.
Faced with the prospect of losing his kingdom, Ryneq gambles on a plan that could ultimately save Torsere, if they can stay alive long enough to see it through. With Ryneq standing against Seran and his witch, time is of the essence, and Nykin must make a sacrifice to end the war. Only then will Ryneq and Nykin be able to start a life together.
Ryneq held tight to Nykin’s waist as they climbed high above the mountains. After what had happened in their room earlier, he wouldn’t have been surprised if Nykin had refused to ride with him.
The words had just slipped out, a knee-jerk reaction to Nykin’s innocent suggestion, because he was tired and not thinking straight. By the time he’d realized how it sounded, it was too late to take them back.
He shifted to try to get more comfortable; sharing a saddle meant for one didn’t make for the most forgiving of seats.
“Okay?” Nykin shouted, the wind almost snatching his words away. He pointed in front of them, and Ryneq squinted against the early-morning sun, trying to see what Nykin was showing him. “Fimor says we can only get a little closer than this, but you should be able to get an idea of the size of Seran’s army.”
Fimor climbed a little higher, dipping his wing to turn to the left, and Ryneq’s fists automatically clenched, tightening his grip. The clouds were low in the sky today, hampering his view, and Fimor weaved in and out, trying to give them the best vantage point. Finally the wind caused a break in the cloud cover, and Ryneq almost wished it hadn’t. His breath caught at the scene below him. He’d expected the army to be bigger than the one Seran had before, but nothing like this.
“May the Gods help us all,” he whispered.
