Random House, Inc.
In the remote hills of northern England lives a powerful clan with a centuries-old secret. They are the drákon, 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 drákon. 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 drákon—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 drákon 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....

A spellbinding, magical read. This a a wonderful read impossible to put down and the author is a amazing story teller who captures your attention from the beginning to end. Filled with fantasy, romance, adventure, action and even a little horror ( just a little) This is a not to be missed book. Oh side note this is the 2nd book in the series of the Drakon The 1st is Smoke Thief. Though this book is also great as a stand alone read.

Princess of a shift shaping dragon people and a human thief collide together to find a diamond that both want for personal reasons.
Interesting read and enjoyable.

Less about adventure and fantasy. More about romance and sex. Some wordy filler used to stretch the story's length.
