Mate Things I learned: What a group of Peacocks is called.
A/B/O politics: Where Alpha/Alpha and Omega/Omega pairings are the equivalent of modern gay couples, and typically frowned upon in this Italian city-state style world government.
Favorites: Dragon shifters -- my favorite shifters in general.
The author duo's talent for dry punchlines and witty banter adds depth and character to the story that many books in this genre lack, taking this series from enjoyable to memorable and re-readable.
Snorre is an amazing side character -- absolutley not what I originally pictured. Do you like older silver fox papi's? A new favorite secondary character -- sarcastic, lecherous, and opposed to any and all societal norms? Yes please.
I'm generally less into the m-preg aspect of m/m books unless it involves shifters, but I was even more intrigued picturing gorgeous apricot and aubergine dragon welps scampering around their infatuated sires.
I love the dynamic, you have a Montegu v.s. Capulet rivalry between the Amethyst and Topez clans (with a hea). Ian, dominant and firey wants Geoffery the moment the other alpha sets eyes on him. He can sense Geoffery's need to submit. Already bonded in secrecy, they resent the experiment forcing Ian to bring an omega (Matthieu) home just to sire a clutch for his father's political machinations. Neither of them expect to fall for the feisty French Omega.
I absolutely recommend the entire series if you like shifters, m-preg, urban fantasy, and flirty, comedic banter. Notes: Per most A/B/O dynamics and societal systems, there are elements of dub con.
