Blood of the Drakon Book #1
Genre: Paranormal RomanceReview Copy Source: NetGalley
Darius Varkas is a drakon. He's neither human nor dragon.
He's also the target of an ancient order who want to capture all drakons for their blood. When fresh, a drakon's blood can cure any illness and prolong a human's life, and the Knights will stop at nothing to get it.
When librarian Sarah Anderson stumbles across a rare book belonging to the Knights of the Dragon, she's quickly thrust into a dangerous world of secrets and shifters and things she never would have believed possible. When the Knights realize Sarah has a secret of her own, she becomes just as much a target as Darius. Her scary dragon shifter just might be her best chance at survival.
I usually find that dragon books are hit or miss with me, but DRAKON'S PROMISE was a hit!
Sarah loves books, so the fact that she is a librarian works well for her. When she starts working on a library of rare books she never imagined that her life would change when she uncovers a rare book that belongs to an evil group. She risks a lot to contact a stranger she knows is in trouble to warn him. I found Sarah to incredibly caring and overall sweet. She stuck to what she thought was right even at expense to herself. Darius is a businessman that is ready to move on to his next adventure in life. He also happens to be a drakon in hiding. He is suspicious of Sarah from the moment he meets her, but also feels a need to protect her. I usually find that the alpha male type can be a dick at first, but I never felt that way about Darius. Darius and Sarah have a ton of chemistry. They have instant attraction and the bond starts to grow from the moment they meet, but there isn't insta-love which is nice. They work well together and I thought Sarah fit well within Darius' world.
DRAKON'S PROMISE was a great introduction to the Blood of the Drakon world and I am excited to see what will come next. I really liked Darius' brother, Tarrant, and it looks like his love interest is heading right for him and I'm sure things will get interesting. I plan to read more of this series and hope that book two will be out sooner rather than later.
I gave it 4/5 stars
