Lead female character (anglo) is a Nurse practitioner that befriends prego single mom. But, mom is found dying. Nurse/friend saves baby. The baby was fathered by a DRAGON kind (half human half dragon) There are good dragons & bad dragons. The good try to protect humans. Bad hates humans. BOTH NEED human females to breed & suck energy from. So the series starts with getting to know the characters of the two packs. Interesting fight scenes. Good start
Awesome story great narrator. I know some complained not enough romance but I think it was quality not quantity. I prefer a good story over massive sex scenes too. So this was perfect. Only thing I would change is ending I would have revealed some of the questions not answered. I'm hoping each book builds on the last even though they have different views of the characters.
I felt like something was missing from the book. There were a lot of instances were Myst forgot about the baby. Like when she freaked and ran away. I think everyone forgot about the baby then. And at the end, the only mention of the baby was from its father and never again. I would like to know where they do that at.
Book has a good premise but good grief it goes in so many circles that after awhile you want to scream. It just kept going and after hanging in there the ending is almost open ended and you either start the second book hoping to get the finish you wish was in the first book or you give up. Disappointed for sure!
Say something about yourself!
This book catches a hold of you quick and doesn't let go. Mist Monroe is a house call nurse practitioner who needs to visit an 8 month pregnant woman. When she gets there all heck breaks loose and she is forced to call 9-1-1. Bastion, leader of the night fury dragons knows what the problem is and rushes to get there before the rogue clan of dragons known as the razorbacks gets to these human women. The instant Bastion sees Mist it is game over, he needs her, and she's high energy of course! There is some contrived drama but it wasn't too bad.
Overall I'd have to say this book was good, solid 4 star good, but not great. Is it a shifter book....yes and no. They are dragons....who shift to appear human. Is it a vampire book....yes and no. There is no blood sucking, but they do suck energy from females, and there are high energy to low energy females out there. They call it being hungry when they need energy, oh and generally it's taken by sucking on the neck....but they don't call it being a vampire, oh and they cant go out in daylight...but still not a vampire.
The book had an interesting world, albeit the world doesn't make sense sometimes. For example....if they can see the energy of women why not sit at the mall or a train station and wait for one to walk by? There are a few of those suspend reality moments. But overall I liked the world and am continuing onto book 2.
