Review: Dragon's Oath

The all-new House of Night Novellas will delve into the backgrounds of some of the Tulsa House of Night's most important - and mysterious - professors. Beginning with Dragon Lankford, DRAGON'S OATH tells the story of the House of Night's formidable fencing instructor and warrior, whose mercy for one beast in the past will come back to haunt him in the future.

The House of Night is a famous YA urban fantasy series. In the HoN world vampires live among people. When a human is marked to become a vampire, they have to move to their local House of Night, the special boarding school for fledgling vampires. So far two companion novellas to the House of Night series are out.

The first novella, Dragon’s Oath, describes the story of the Sword Master at Tulsa’s House of Night. In the series he is not a main character, yet he plays quite an important role, especially in the latest books. This novella uncovers an important moment in Dragon’s life, the oath he once made to his mate Anastasia. The oath that changed everything and one could only guess how this fact will impact the story of the actual series, because believe me, it is quite shocking. Also, Dragon gained some complexity as a character, and his behaviour in the series makes more sense now.
It reads better that the last few books in the series. It is very refreshing and it makes you fall in love with the House of Night world all over again. It reminds you of all the good stuff the authors focus on in their book. Open-mindedness, tolerance, and the woman power. It makes you once again appreciate the obvious amount of research P.C. Cast has done for this series. It is, simply put, a great read.
And last but not least, it has beautiful illustrations that complete the novella and turn it into a little gem.
All in all, this was an enjoyable read that was never boring. House of Night fan or not, go read it. You won’t be disappointed! A nice book.
