The dragons are dying. Now a talented blacksmith and a betrayed prince must find a way to save them...while saving each other.
Bren, a blacksmith in a small town, longs to escape his drunken, abusive father. His world is turned upside down when legendary dragon riders arrive and discover Bren is a chosen one. He's taken to the great mountain fortress to imprint one of the new hatchlings by none other than Kyralian, the dragon prince. After the hatching goes terribly wrong, Bren struggles to recover by losing himself in his metalwork, taking on apprentices, and ignoring all dragons. But he soon realizes that Kyralian, seemingly so powerful, is in real trouble. The prince and his male dragon are treated like property, mated as a prize at the end of a yearly chase. Bren will do anything to keep the prince and his dragon safe...even if it costs him everything.
Kyralian is desperate to save the dragons of his colony. He's searching for answers to the failing dragon lines, but the ruling council only wants to use his dragon for breeding. He can't defy them because he's bound by duty and his love for his people. Yet he's never felt more alone, more caged by his obligations to the colony. Now his growing feelings for the blacksmith have endangered both their freedom and their lives. The prince's dragon is the last male in the fortress, his value beyond price, and there are enemies who will do anything to make the prince submit...

Dragon Forge is a book set in a world where Dragon's and men live together. The story evolves around Bren and Kyralian. These two have a difficult path ahead of them and face a lot of challenges. The story is well written and I had trouble laying it aside as I wanted to read it in 1 go. At a certain point I really was afraid that Bren and Kyralian might not have a happy ending I really was afraid.. But they managed to find each other again. The story ends with a HFN giving me the hope that there might be a sequel coming. I definitely recommend this book.
