Summary: In early 19th century England, long before he’s a professor at the Tulsa House of Night, Bryan Lankford is a troublesome yet talented human teen who thinks he can get away with anything… until his father, a wealthy nobleman, has finally had enough, and banishes him to America. When Bryan is Marked on the docks and given the choice between the London House of Night and the dragon-prowed ship to America, he chooses the Dragon – and a brand new fate.
Becoming a Fledgling may be exciting, but it opens a door to a dangerous world.... In 1830’s St. Louis, the Gateway to the West, Dragon Lankford becomes a Sword Master, and soon realizes there are both frightening challenges and beautiful perks. Like Anastasia, the captivating young Professor of Spells and Rituals at the Tower Grove House of Night, who really should have nothing to do with a fledgling…
But when a dark power threatens, Dragon is caught in its focus. Though his uncanny fighting skills make him a powerful fledgling, is he strong enough to ward off evil, while protecting Anastasia as well? Will his choices save her—or destroy them all?
Thoughts: If you have been reading the House of Night series you'll be familiar with Professor Dragon Lankford. This is the story of Dragon and Anastasia.
Before Dragon was a professor. He was Bryan Lankford- human. The son of an Earl. On the verge of becoming a fledgling his father disowns him and banishes him to America. These two events change his life and lead him to Anastasia. Dragon's Oath is a most enjoyable read. Dragon's story is set at a slow pace - but wonderfully so. A captivating world filled with destiny and magic. The Cast's spin a tale of love, treachery and heartache. I love that they have broadened their series to tell us stories of the Professors that make up Tulsa House of Night.
Caitlin Davies narrates Dragon's Oath. The voice, tone and accent that she gives Dragon is perfect. Sounding exactly how I imagine he would.
