FINAL DECISION: I was disappointed that this book focused on Gabrielle who I don't find as interesting a character as Janet. While I enjoyed the action and the plot, I couldn't get immersed in the characters with the shifting points of view.
THE STORY: Janet has come to Las Vegas for some girl time. She stumbles into a situation with her dragon boyfriend, Mick. In the process of rescuing him, Janet's sister, Gabrielle, ends up helping and triggering something really bad. Now Gabrielle is determined to make her own way and prove that she can handle things.
OPINION: Just too many points of view for me. The story is told in first person, but with four different voices. I found it distracting while trying to learn new characters. Perhaps if it had been only Gabrielle's point of view, I could have felt more connected to her. Because of the four different views with people telling different stories, I just felt adrift from the characters.
I also just didn't find Gabrielle as compelling a characters as Janet. I was interested in what was going on in the plot of the story and that kept me going through the pages.
By the end of the book, I did like Gabrielle better than in the beginning, so I expect her story might continue and I think I would be better prepared.
WORTH MENTIONING: There is a new romance here, but I'm not giving it away.
CONNECTED BOOKS: DRAGON BITES is the sixth book in the Stormwalker series. Although this story is self-contained, the characters are the same throughout the series and thus, this book is better read as part of the series because a reader would have to catch up on the storyline and the prior events.
STAR RATING: I give this book 2.5 stars.
