Saying goodbye to their old life in the Wyr demesne in New York may be hard, but Dragos and Pia are determined to create a new life in the Other land of Rhyacia.

At first, everything seems idyllic. Rhyacia is paradisiacal. Accompanied by old friends and new allies, the future looks safe and bright for Dragos, Pia, and baby Niall.

But strange things are happening beneath the picturesque façade. Items move unaccompanied, buildings collapse without justifiable cause, and even the most Powerful residents of Rhyacia can provide no logical explanation for the events transpiring. Whispered rumors point to something called the unseen.

As Dragos and Pia investigate, they uncover a greater mystery than they could have imagined, and they realize the startling truth…

They’re not alone in Rhyacia. The land Dragos had thought was uninhabited hides many secrets, a shocking history that’s not quite ready to be buried, and something more.

I’ve loved this Elder Races series which started with Dragos and Pia. This novella is the start of a series of novellas with them as the main characters. Happily, we get many of the other characters from the series too.  Since The Unseen ends on a cliffhanger of sorts, I am concerned that the novellas could have all just been one book.  I’m not a fan of serials, especially if installments end abruptly.

I did really enjoy the story very much.  It’s always a pleasure to revisit characters one knows and well loves.  Dragos and Pia are leaving Earth and starting a new phase of their lives.  Pia is sad to leave the home she has loved and been so comfortable, but they both agree it is what they want.  They are building a new community and some of their friends are joining them in this new world.

I can’t tell you much more about the story without spoiling but let’s be clear – things don’t go quite as planned.  There are some mysterious happening which Dragos and Pia begin to investigate.  Pia seems particularly attuned to the problem.  It’s worrying but nothing too egregious has happened, until it does.   The next story, which I hope is soon,  is The Adversary.

  1. Oh, how I loved this series befor I got behind! I went on PNR overload and went on hiatus, losing track of this series. Dragon Bound ranks as an all time favorite. Thanks for the reminder about this world! Wonderful review, Anne? Glad to see Dragos and Pia are still going strong.

  2. I think I read the first book of this series a long time ago. Not sure why I didn’t continue. Serials are tough because they only give a snippet and leave you wanting more. I usually try to let several weeks go by and then binge. I’ve been doing that with the Julie (Ryder) serial by Ilona Andrews.

    • Well it’s different for me with paid vs. free serials. I do tend to read the Ilona Andrews serials as they happen and buy the book also. (It’s #44 in the Kindle store, did you know? It just went up yesterday; I need to get in my pre-order.) But that’s the entire book. If I’m buying it, I just want the whole thing.

      This is a really great series which I do enjoy a lot.
