Dragon and Herdsman
The best of the Dragonback novels so far. Alison comes back into the story, Jack and Drayco find a “colony” of K’da, who seem to have reverted back to animalism, and one of them bonds with Alison and becomes intelligent again. Right at the end there are “leads” that point to Alison working for Neverlin. Personally, I think she is working for Braxton. The plot starts to be less simplistic and more “Zahn’y” ;-). I really am liking this series, the more it goes on, the better!
