Review: Lord's Fall by Thea Harrison

In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two mates find themselves on different paths, torn between their duty to the Wyr and the passion that binds them… 

Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom.

In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear…

I hate to say this book is "filler" when I loved the first book of this series, Dragon Bound, so very much and Lord's Fall revisits Pia and Dragos, the two characters who helped to hook me on this series.  Maybe the reason I claim "filler" because I didn't savor this book and read it slowly.   Whatever it is, I will be honest and say that I didn't enjoy Lord's Fall as much as I had thought I would.  Oh, it has its moments, particularly the final chapters, but speeding through 280 pages with a teensy bit of payoff in the last third isn't what I've come to expect from Ms. Harrison, especially when Pia and Dragos are the main characters of the book.  Still, those final moments did give me a happy sigh.
