First, I must say I absolutely loved this book! Read it in less than 12 hours- very difficult to put down, so caution when you begin it. This book flows in all the right ways. It was easy to understand and keep up. My only complaint would be the cliffhanger but I’ll let it slide this time as the book was awesome!
Warning: This book contains adult language and themes, if you are offended by sex, the p word, or like things, this book may not be for you.
Detailed review of book below (contains some spoilers):
The book starts with Dareena, a girl who everyone considers a nobody, working for Mr. Harrin at his Inn. Mr. Harrin is her only prospect for a husband until she attends the Dragon’s Hunt Festival. Picked by the huntress, who happens to be the daughter of King Dragomir, Dareena goes to the Dragon’s Keep. Her life changes when she is chosen as the Dragon’s Gift, the one who must bear the future king’s children to keep the Dragon lines going. If only it were that simple...the King has gone mad from the death of his wife years ago. Instead of making the choice of who succeeds him, he forces Dareena to choose one of his three sons (Drystan, Lucyan, and Alistair) after courting for a couple weeks. While getting to know the three potential dragon kings, Dareena discovers who she is sexually. Complicating things during this time, the kingdom is at war with the Elves, who are believed to have caused the death of the previous Dragon’s gift. Dareena finds that what everyone believes and sees is not quite true…
The first half of the book contains little to no sexual encounters and serves more as the base of the story, while the second half is full of sex.
The book is full of fun characters and I can’t wait for their stories to unfold. If you love fantasy or books like the Merry Gentry series, you will want to read this book.
* I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for my review, however, I have also purchased the book (that’s how much I love it!).
