The Most Alluring of Beauties is Always The Most Dangerous

Part one of the Dragon Kings Serial by Donna Grant is everything you want to expect and more. Starting with the cover talk about drool! Did someone say Dragons? Yes sign me up please. Grant introduces us to a world once ruled by Dragon Kings once the humans came they vowed to protect them. A war has been raging for centuries now under the guise of a treaty the Dark Fae still pursue the souls of innocent humans. Kiril is an uber sexy dragon king who has placed himself in the nest of dark fae in order to save his friend. Shara is a dark fae tasked to capture Kiril well she captures him alright…but not in the way everyone expects!

This was a delightfully delicious read. Kiril oozes yummy and all power. Though the read is a short one the reader has a strong sense of Kiril’s loyal nature. There is nothing he wouldn’t’ do to protect those he cares for. He has always been alone and that suits him just fine, determined no matter the cost Kiril will see to the safe return of his friend. Shara has an allure unmatched by any other this is what makes her the perfect candidate to lure Kiril. What no one knows is the hurt that lies in her heart. Both sides want something from Shara but Shara has to figure out what she wants for herself first.

As I mentioned this first installment was quite short as expected in a serial. I’m not certain if I like serials or not?.. One thing is for sure they are full of potent material. From the first page it is a whirlwind of information action and punch after punch of awesome. I enjoyed the interactions with the characters even though there was a lot of information thrown right at the reader it is happily received. I look forward to continuing this series as I have fallen for Kiril and Shara I’ve got my fingers crossed about all of the amazing possibilities!

My Rating
4.0 Ireland, Pub, Dress, Red, Silver, Sword, Allure, Seduction, Submission, Guards, Dragon, Millennia, Fae, Dark, Light, Door, Answers, Knowing its wrong but too strong to avoid passionate demanding lust filled stars.

  1. This sounds pretty good Ria. I prefer not to read serials until all the books are out. Good to see you thought there was plenty of detail in it, even if it was really short.

  2. I like the idea of dragons. I think I need more dragons in my life. Though the whole serial thing doesn't sit well.
