Summary

Destined to save more than just his heart.

The High Dragon

The moment Jaspyr, High Dragon of the y Draig clan, met Avyla he knew she was fated to be his mate. He sensed the magic within her and recognized that she was destined to be his salvation. She would be both his eternal love and guardian of his humanity. 

A kind apothecary

But the meek yet strong-willed woman harbored doubt that a commoner such as she could be with, much less love, such a powerful man. Avyla did not know of the magic within her and had never experienced true love before. Though it may have been her destiny, Avyla's heart was hesitant. 

Danger from within

Not all dragons find their mates, which leaves Jaspyr and the others of his clan with the task of hunting them down once their humanity vanishes. When one of his clan falls to the insanity shortly after Avyla’s arrival, a battle wages that not only endangers the draconic shifters and their mates, but also produces a crucible where the bonds of love are tested and forged.

The Dragon & His Treasure! Great Story & Listen🎧

4.5 Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I adored this book, it is original, well written and engrossed me from start to end. AJ Ryder created a fascinating world with imaginative & interesting creatures and storylines. The characters were nicely developed, I enjoyed learning more about each, as well as the clans dynamics as the story went on. Jaspyr, the leader, finally meets his mate, Avyla, who is a darling. I was not sure about Jaspry at first but he turned out to be a really nice guy or should I say dragon. The secondary characters were all great and added a lot to the story too. This is my first AJ Ryder book and I enjoyed this as a stand alone. There is a glossary in the back of the Kindle book that is very helpful, it gives descriptions of the locations, character races and their Deities mentioned in the book. I highly recommend this action-packed, drama filled story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Curt Bonnem is an amazing narrator and storyteller. He performed the voices of all the characters, gave each their own unique sound. Did a wonderful job on accents and added the right amount of dramatic flair to the story. Thanks for the great & entertaining listen.

Pure romance

I liked the story but felt it could have been a lot shorter. They found each other right away in the story and I really enjoyed their meet cute. The beginning had the romance then there was drama at the end with a different story line. Could have had this in a different book was my feeling. Just didn't seem connected and made the hero look weak. Great epilogue though. The narrator did not do the women's voices well, found it made them sound weak and whiney. But otherwise he performed the rest of the story well.

Excellent

I didn't realize until after getting the book that it was in the middle of the series (I usually have to start at the beginning) but I listened anyway and loved it!

Destined for the Dragon was awesome and I can't wait to go back and get the first 2 books now! The story was awesome and the narration was on point!!

Entertaining

This was a very unique and entertaining book. I was pleasantly surprised by this story. I love dragons and shifters, so shifter dragons are even better. Love, romance, action, and shifters this book will appeal to everyone.
