Book Blurb: 

It’s 1915, and Lora Jones is finishing up her first year as a charity student at Iverson, the eerie, elite boarding school on England’s southern coast. While she’s always felt different from everyone around her, now she finally knows why: She is a drákon, a rare, enchanted being with astonishing magical abilities.
As war hits Britain’s shores, and Lora reels from an unimaginable loss, she finds that her powers come with dangerous responsibilities. At the request of Armand Louis, the darkly mysterious boy whose father owns Iverson, Lora will spend her summer at his estate. To help the war effort—and to keep Lora near—Armand turns his home into a military hospital, where Lora will serve as a nurse. For Armand is inescapably drawn to her—bound to her by heart-deep secrets and a supernatural connection that runs thicker than blood.
Yet while Lora sorts out her own feelings toward Armand, fate offers an unexpected surprise. Lora discovers there is another drákon, a prisoner of war. And that only she, with her newly honed Gifts, will be able to rescue him.

With Armand at her side, Lora will cross enemy lines on an incredible mission—one that could bond her to Armand forever, or irrevocably tear them apart. 

My Review: 

Enjoyed this story. Great descriptions. Lora and Armand's attraction is rather one-sided. She still has feelings for Jesse, who she lost recently. I loved the interaction between them and hoped they would become closer. I did get confused for a bit when it switched POVs between Lora, Mandy and Jesse. I believe I would have understood it better if I had read the first book, The Sweetest Dark. I still give the book 5 stars. I will track down the first and anxiously await the next.
