My long-running grumble about this cute series has always been “needs more Lumie”, so imagine my delight when I discovered that not only was this Lumie’s book, but that he also wasn’t about to be romantically paired up with Alloy. (Goldie? Who is Goldie? Did I miss something?) Then imagine my horror when I found out that Lumie was all grown up, whiny and lazy, and I didn’t like him much at all!

Thankfully this doesn’t last long. Yes, he’s a bit whiny and is very lazy, but he’s still cheeky little Lumie underneath, doing unfathomable things with his magic just because he can. And the way he feels about Goldie is so sweet. He tries so hard to make the quiet, nervous dragon smile for him, wanting him to feel safe and be happy, but he’s also mature enough to realise that not even his crazy-wonderful magic can fix everything.

I liked Goldie too, even if he is very nervy and uncertain at first, and his sudden sadness over Lumie giving up on him seemed to come out of nowhere. I absolutely adored seeing him overcome his fears and take control of his powers. He’s a strong dragon, but still sweet underneath, and a perfect match for Lumie.

It was also great to see Lumie face challenges for the first time. He’s pretty cocky about his abilities and how instinctive they’ve always been, so it was interesting to learn a little more about what they are and where they come from. I liked seeing the relationship between him and Goldie grow too. Just because Lumie’s always known Goldie was his mate, didn’t mean it was easy, so that was nice.

Away from these two, it looks like the overall plot has kick-started again, which is great because I was beginning to wonder just how much longer the series would continue. Now I have high hopes that there’s still plenty more to come, especially Alloy. This book needed more Alloy… because, apparently, I am never satisfied. Can’t wait for more!
