Things can’t get any worse than being snatched by a dragon, until Anna is dropped into a bloodthirsty battle for the Draconic crown. A trip to New Zealand was supposed to be a fun distraction for Anna after yet another painful breakup. Instead, she’s snatched and flown away by a mythical beast bent on making her his queen. Anna’s rare blood type makes her the only viable mate in the islands, and with scores of dragons looking for her, escape isn’t likely. Joe is the youngest and smallest dragon in the competition to become king. Now that he’s found Anna, all he needs to overthrow the current corrupt monarch is to bring her back to Dragonmount. He’s injured and unable to fly, though, and each passing second increases the risk of discovery. If the current king finds Anna, he will use her to secure his throne and slaughter her to celebrate her victory. Anna is Joe’s to protect, and he will not allow the king to defile her or his people ever again – even if it means challenging a dragon five times his size.
I have previously read 3 other Jennifer M. Eaton books and I absolutely loved them, so I went into this book already knowing it was going to be good. And I was right. The characters are well developed; the writing style is amazing. I couldn’t think of any other way to start off 2018 then to finish this amazing book.
Until my next post,
