Free ARC provided through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The beginning of the book starts off extremely fast-paced, so much that it seemed like I was missing a first chapter. Because of this it took me a few chapters to get into the storyline but once I got into it, I really enjoyed it. I love how unique and rare Thaisa’s looks are, but I really hate her extreme lack of confidence. It seems like the author missed a great opportunity to show readers that women are beautiful no matter their image as long as they are confident in themselves. I don’t mind a female character who’s a little cynical and realistic about her image, but Thaisa becomes whiny and annoying with it, so far as to hate others for being good-looking. It just made her seem immature. Other than that, I liked the premise, I just wish it was executed a little more clearly. Some parts were confusing to read, because it wasn’t clear what was going on, particularly in the ending. I’ll be interested to see how MacAlister takes this series with the new Dragon Hunters.
Bonus Review of Wolf’s Mate:
Now this was a fantastic story! I love Abby’s character. She’s the perfect mix of sweet, sass, and a little badass. Declan is exactly what you’d expect in a shifter, very alpha-male and overprotective but in such a sexy way. I’m really interested in Cole’s story and the continued storyline of Uniformed Humanity.
With dragons like him, who needs enemies?
Real scholars know that supernatural beings don’t exist. But the moment I meet Archer Andras of the Storm Dragons, all my academic training goes out the window. Thanks to Mr. Tall, Dark, And Infuriating, I’m learning that I really should worry about those things that go bump in the night. . . and that dragons like Archer are 100 percent pure trouble.
Now I’m caught in the middle of a war. On one side is Archer. On the other is his twin brother. And I am the key to translating an ancient text that could bring balance-or deadly ruin-to our world. But none of that is as dangerous as the seriously sexy sparks between Archer and me. He’s too tempting to be real. Too gorgeous to trust. And when it comes to dragons, there’s no smoke without deadly fire.
Includes the novel WOLF’S MATE by Celia Kyle: When Abby Carter is threatened by an anti-shifter organization, werewolf shifter Declan Reed will have to convince her that there’s no safer place in the world than in the arms of a big bad werewolf.
