I was looking forward to the First Dragon’s story … I was all excited when I first read the blurb for this book. The fact that it is a novella sort of made me sad though, but I don’t think his type of character could make for a full length book easily.
The story was and wasn’t what I would normally expect from MacAlister. A chunk of the book was a sort of lexicon about the dragons and stuff from the series. I thought that there would be more to the story, but it all wrapped up nicely and too quickly for me. I guess I might be spoiled and had too high of an expectation for it, who knows…. It still had MacAlister’s trademark humor and likable characters and was a cute story. I particularly liked how Charity got herself out of being imprisoned. It was a good call since for some reason most guys go all squeamish when a girl talks about “her woman’s time.”
I was expecting more when it came to Charity and her band mates and maybe a bit more conflict. But, if you look at it from the perspective that it is just a wrap up story to give a favorite character of the entire batch of series his HE then it was a cute story. I enjoyed seeing characters from throughout the whole series all together in one spot. I would’ve liked to read more about the First Dragon acclimating himself to the modern world, but I guess since he found his mate he really didn’t have to deal with the inanities of going potty or eating, lol. I normally eat the fish out of water trope up so of course it wasn’t enough for me. It would’ve been nice to hear more about what a siren can and cannot do and where they come from. The romance between the two seemed rushed, but that could be expected from the length and nature of the story. I also would’ve liked to see Andrew and the other band mates get theirs, but I’m just going to think that they will probably cause trouble later on.
Now I want to read the whole series all over again so I can focus on the First Dragon.
