The Dark Kings must battle to preserve their dragon magic. But can one warrior fight his greatest desires?
As a race of shape shifting immortals who had been around since the dawn of time, these men of power and magic can shift into dragon form. For centuries they have ruled over all other creatures. When humans appeared, they protected them until they were betrayed and thousands of dragons were killed. But now a new evil is awakening…and the dragon warriors are being pulled into a war against their will. What they never expected was to find a love so powerful that it threatens to destroy everything they have ever known…
Worldbuilding: The Dark Kings world is beyond awesomesauce, paranormal elements (dragon shifters, fey, Warriors, druids – a looot of good stuff!), plus the awesome setting of Scotland, how could a girl resist, I ask you? Sigh.
Characters: I loooved Iona and Laith, both separately and together 😀 Iona was especially dear to me, due to her horror of a mother and the need to find her roots when she finds out there’s no mending the relationship with her estranged father. I felt this part of the serial particularly focused on character building, and Donna Grant did a fabulous job with Iona, and other characters as well, sure, but her particularly, in my opinion.
Laith was everything I expected him to be, gorgeous, all alpha-vibe, damaged a bit but highly functional, brave, loyal…did I mention hot? Yeah…*daydreams*
Their one on one was hot and they had awesome chemistry, more of a slow burn type of wove even if they’re very drawn to each other from the first moment they meet 😀
Also, I’m totally immersed into Rhi’s story, I SO wanna know which Dragon King she was involved with. I have some suspicions right now, but I waaaaant to know 😀
Plot: Aside the awesome budding romance tangent, there’s the Ulrik versus the Kings story going on, and I love the antagonist and cannot to read more about this ongoing conflict. Awesome pace of action, some proper Dragons versus Dark Fey fighting 😀 Yum!
Writing: Third person, past tense narrative, his and her POV. Awesome writing, and I particularly love the “accent” of the dragons 😀
Curb Appeal: Awesome cover, hooking blurb, and an instant-buy author name for dragon romance reading.
All in all, another uber-awesome dragon romance read from Donna Grant. If you like dragons in your PNR, read these stories, you SO won’t regret it!
If you don’t wanna do the weekly 4 parts, look for the full novel out Dec 30 😀 It’s worth it, I say. Get yourself a hot dragon New Year present xDDD
