The first in an enthralling new mini-series of novellas from the #1 bestselling authors of the House of Night, Dragon's Oath tells the story behind the House of Night's formidable fencing instructor – the love that will transform him, and the promise that will haunt him

In early 19th century England, long before he's a professor at the Tulsa House of Night, Bryan Lankford is a troublesome yet talented human teen who thinks he can get away with anything… until his father, a wealthy nobleman, has finally had enough, and banishes him to America. When Bryan is Marked on the docks and given the choice between the London House of Night and the dragon-prowed ship to America, he chooses the Dragon – and a brand new fate.

Becoming a Fledgling may be exciting, but it opens a door to a dangerous world.... In 1830's St. Louis, the Gateway to the West, Dragon Lankford becomes a Sword Master, and soon realizes there are both frightening challenges and beautiful perks. Like Anastasia, the captivating young Professor of Spells and Rituals at the Tower Grove House of Night, who really should have nothing to do with a fledgling…

But when a dark power threatens, Dragon is caught in its focus. Though his uncanny fighting skills make him a powerful fledgling, is he strong enough to ward off evil, while protecting Anastasia as well? Will his choices save her—or destroy them all?

    " I really enjoyed this book, but it left me brokenhearted. I hate what Dragon has decided to be & do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 2/10/2014

    " This really explained alot about Dragon and Anastasia. I just wish there'd been a bit more to it then there was. But overall, a great addition to a wonderful series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/7/2014

    " I was so happy to hear that the first little novella would be about Dragon, I really love his character and his relationship with Anastasia and was hoping to see it revealed more in depth. I was disappointed with the length, though. There really wasn't anything wrong with what *was* there, I was just expecting more...especially regarding such an interesting character and a long relationship. As with all great writing, it left me wanting more, but I wouldn't have been disappointed if there was a bit more presented. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 1/26/2014

    " Very well written and love the fact that we now have a better look into Dragon's life and his relationship with Annastasia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mom | 1/25/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dani | 1/6/2014

    " Reading this novella really made the end of Destined that much better. It gives you more detail on Dragon and his past with Anastasia. It really brings more meaning to the books, being able to have more detail on these characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taimara | 1/5/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina Madison | 12/26/2013

    " Dragon's story is so heartbreaking and tragic. I was crying so hard by the end. Even just seeing the illustration to the epilogue brings a tear to my eye, because it sums up the epilogue so well. You can tell what happens just by looking at it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 12/11/2013

    " This novella was a fun, quick read. I love reading prequels to books and Cast gave some important details about Dragon and Anastasia that increased my understanding of the two. I wouldn't recommend this book if you have not been reading the House of Night series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 11/20/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 11/16/2013

    " Pretty good, but it was to short. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Penny | 6/19/2013

    " I can't believe they released this as it's own book. This is a very bad short story. This is nowhere near her standard. "

    " It was nice to read a HoN book that didn't have the word "bullpoopie" in it. I enjoyed reading about Dragon and having more grown up language. It was a welcome change of pace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/26/2012

    " Amazing story about how Dragon meets his wife Anastasia. Early look at Raven Mockers. If you love the characters from House of Night, you've got to read this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Latte | 7/19/2011

    " I like the idea of getting the backstories to some of the other characters in the series but this particular one just sort of leaves me wanting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 7/18/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 7/16/2011

    " Very good but too small. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/16/2011

    " Good backstory for some secondary characters (Dragon Lankford and Anastasia), but it should have been bundled with a couple more novellas instead of a standalone. It was very short. "

    I only wish this was longer! "
