Nikolai is a dragon shapeshifter who knows well the meaning of loss. Orphaned and raised to be a Dragon King, he never accepts defeat. Now, Nikolai prefers his solitude . . .until a beautiful, irresistible woman calls upon him for help—and Nikola’s whole word goes up in flames.
Ever since MI5 agent Esther woke to discover her mind taken over with magic, she feels like stranger to herself. She looks to a notorious dragon, one who has the power to help her find her memory. But as she and Nikolai come closer to discovering what really happened to her, a dangerous passion ignites between them. Can this lone Dragon King help the woman he’s grown to love to uncover the truth about her past—or will a deep and fiery danger tear them both apart?
This started out slow for me. I think because I picked up the series with book 12 and not the first one like people normally would. Once I got the jist of the series from the book I got into it and enjoyed it. I loved reading about a tough, ancient ‘man’ (though fictitious) accepted he loved someone. It was also nice to see the woman somewhat question her feelings instead of just falling head first into the relationship. It was also nice to see Nikolai was right that Ulrik wasn’t as bad as he seemed.
I plan on reading the first 11 books as well as any other after this and the cross overs. It has been awhile since I got taken with a world in books and I am happy I was able to do so again.
I received this book from Net Galley for this honest review.
