As much as I enjoyed the previous four books set in this universe, this one was hard going for me. I just couldn't keep anyone's identity straight, I kept forgetting who was who and who belonged with whom. There were just too many couples and combinations. So confusing. And also, it creeped me out that the guys had sex with their dragons. The dragons are portrayed as very basically sentient pets, so you can see why that would be discomforting.
