A different, yet familiar, take on dragons, magic, etc. It seems familiar having read Anne Bishop's The Black Jewels Trilogy - there are Eyrians (Aerians in this book), a powerful female protagonist, a dangerous love interest, dragons, magic, wolves, etc. It's different because of the premise of "The Old Ones" who were gods, but not in the mortal sense. Enjoyable read. Next time I'll wait til I'm sure I can pick up all three in a series. I HATE waiting for the next ones.
