Truth of Dragons by Aja James
Every lore of every clan, across time and space, dreamed of dragons. Did you ever wonder why?
Erebu the Black Dragon must answer the Jade Emperor's summons to repay the debt for his miraculous resurrection from a fatal battle. Accompanying him is his Phoenix Mate, Sorin.
Their success is limited by seemingly arbitrary rules and an even more arbitrary sandglass of time. The only things they can count on is that: 1) each of their quests takes them to a time in the past, 2) they will witness (and perhaps even enable) True Love along the way, and 3) the Universal Balance hangs in...well, the balance.
Their fifth task is to learn the Forgotten Truth.
This time, Ere and Sorin have disappeared, leaving Ben to pick up the pieces. With the help of Seventh Sister and the Mirror Pond, he travels back to the Age of Dark Ones, when “vampires” ruled the known world, in search of the Truth that could set them all free.
Ben meets an exiled Dark Hunter along the way, a mysterious man called Zaidu, or Zai. They team up to infiltrate Queen Ashlu’s fortress and free a prisoner Beast. This animal spirit, Sin, who can transform into a liger, is also Zai’s bitterest enemy, but that doesn’t stop Zai from paying the debts he feels owed.
The three unlikely collaborators seek out the Tiger King who knows how to find the Eagle King, Sol, who happens to be Sorin’s previous incarnation. Ben feels certain that finding Sol would lead to the discovery of the answers he’s looking for.
Can the three men work together to find the Truth (and somehow avoid two bitter enemies maiming and killing each other in the process)? Who is the strange nine-tailed fox that befriends Ben in the journey? Can the path of Destiny be altered, or are they doomed before they’ve even begun?
The end of the world may be just around the corner. Along the way, enemies may become lovers, reluctant friendships may form, and lots of hot, desperate, this-may-be-the-last-time-we-have-sex sex will definitely be had.
And who knows, you too may help discover the…
TRUTH OF DRAGONS.
