Ruby Dixon definitely writes engaging stories featuring strong, protective alpha males. I love IPB, so I knew I had to try this dragon story out too. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.
I had flashes of King Kong as the book starts. Beautiful woman used as bait to lure the savage beast to his own death. But that was where the similarities ended.
The story took off in a direction readers of IPB will be familiar with. Yes, Kael is very similar to a group of blue, horned aliens we all know and love. But hey that formula works. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!
My only peeve was that our heroine, Claudia, kept going back and forth, not telling Kael why she was upset. She thought that she had to choose between Kael and her sister and friend. Those aren’t the only choices, hun. You can have both. <spoiler>And mind-reading Kael, who knew when she was thinking she might fall or other things, never picked up on the fact that she missed her sister? </spoiler>
But I still loved the story and can’t wait to read what happened to Claudia’s friend.
