C’mon dragon, light my fire…
For Nolwenn witch Talaith, a bad day begins with being dragged from bed by an angry mob intent on her crispy end and culminates in rescue by—wait for it—a silver-maned dragon. Existence as a hated outcast is nothing new for a woman with such powerful secrets. The dragon, though? A tad unusual. This one has a human form to die for, and knows it. According to dragon law, Talaith is now his property, for pleasure…or otherwise. But if Lord Arrogance thinks she’s the kind of damsel to acquiesce without a word, he’s in for a surprise…
Is the woman never silent? Briec the Mighty knew the moment he laid eyes on Talaith that she would be his, but he’d counted on tongue-lashings of an altogether different sort. It’s embarrassing, really, that it isn’t this outspoken female’s magicks that have the realm’s greatest dragon in her thrall. No, Briec has been spellbound by something altogether different—and if he doesn’t tread carefully, what he doesn’t know about human women could well be the undoing of his entire race…
I find this series to be hilarious from an adult paranormal standpoint. This book is a continuation of the Dragon Kin series and follows one of the dragon brothers, Briec. Briec is a headstrong and stubborn character with an inflated feeling of self worth. He is one that would need something or someone special to keep him in line. Enter Talaith. Talaith is a character I really grew to love… she developed immensely over the book and there was more to her character than her relationship with Briec.
I really enjoyed adding that component of Gods into the mix, showing that maybe Dragons aren’t the highest thing on the food chain in this world. Overall, this was a book with many interesting and funny one liners that had me in stitches. The romance wasn’t the focus of the book in my opinion, even though it did guide the plot.
Keep Calm and Read On,
