Chapter 22, Page 264 – Violet’s inner thoughts about Liam
“He’s already taken everyone but Dain down the mat, and part of me thinks that’s only because Daub refuses to be bested by a younger rider.”
Comments: I disagree, I believe Liam is intentionally avoiding Dain until he learns how to shield himself. As a first-year student who has just bonded with his dragon, who is now channelling, Liam wouldn’t have had the opportunity to learn how to block Dain Aetos before. Now, he’s avoiding Dain at all costs until he figures out what to do. Interestingly, a little later in the book, he actually confronts him on the mat.
