Romance Book Review: G. A. Aiken's Dragon Actually
Author: G.A. Aiken
Series Connection: Dragon Kin
Genre: Paranormal, Shifter, Dragon, Urban Fantasy
Purchase Link: Amazon
One of my favorite authors is re-releasing the first in her Dragon Kin series Dragon Actually. Included in the new print edition is a new novella called A Tale of Two Dragon. The novella is also available for purchase as an ebook.
In Dragon Actually Annwyl the Bloody lives in a time when monarchies rise and fall at the end of a sword. Of all the Queens in this world the one to be feared the most is Annwyl the Bloody. Most think that Annwyl is insane. While in battle Annwyl happens upon a dragon that she can talk to. Living within Fearghus the Destroyer's cave she doesn't realize that he is actually a shifter and can shift into a man.
Fearghus the Destroyer realizes that Annwyl is his mate, which is a bad thing because Fearghus doesn't really like humans, except maybe to eat but Annwyl is totally different from any human Fearghus has ever met.
Love, love, love this series, but this book isn't for the faint of heart. Incredible amusing and quite bloody it will certainly keep you laughing through the whole story.
With a nickname like Annwyl the Bloody, men tend to either cower in fear at the sight of me, or salute. So it would be nice to find a man I can actually talk to, just the way I can talk to Fearghus the Destroyer. Then again, Fearghus is a dragon...
Find out for yourself why All Things Urban Fantasy calls the Dragon Kin series, "As bawdy, crass, and hilarious as anything I could have hoped for!" and read the prequel novella, "A Tale of Two Dragons," to see where the insanity began!
