It’s not always easy being a female warrior with a nickname like Annwyl the Bloody. Men tend to either cower in fear – a lot – or else salute. It’s true that Annwyl has a knack for decapitating legions of her ruthless brother’s soldiers without pausing for breath. But just once it would be nice to be able to really talk to a man, the way, she can talk to Fearghus the Destroyer.
Too bad that Fearghus is a dragon, of the large, scaly and deadly type. With him, Annwyl feels safe – a far cry from the feelings aroused by the hard-bodied, arrogant knight Fearghus has arranged to help train her for battle. With her days spent fighting a man who fill her with fierce, heady desire, and her nights spent in the company of a magical creature who could smite a village just by exhaling, Annwyl is sure life couldn’t get any stranger. She’s wrong…
I found this book to be hilarious. I loved the relationship between Annwyl and Fearghus and the way they just seemed to push each others buttons. Let’s just get this straight, there is no-one better for a grumpy dragon than a bloodthirsty and utterly insane princess. The world-building was extremely well done and the magic system and royal line was acting explained in such a way that I could follow the plot of the book. As you can tell by the title of this book, it is about dragons. I loved starting to explore the mythology of dragons and how this works in with the world G.A Aiken has created. Don’t let the cover fool you, this is a well developed Paranormal Fantasy book with a royal system and some hilarious dialogue. This is a series I am going to love and I am ecstatic that I gave this book a chance.
Keep Calm and Read On,
