Summary

Since her father's sudden death, all Evie wants is comfort and security for her family, especially from dragon cagers. The two-tongued serpents are said to take the shape of a man, woo their ill-fated victims, and then devour them whole. But no one ever told Evie she could be kindred to the creatures. 

When Evie is framed and exiled, a cager called Lachlann discovers her roaming in the barren dragon country. Now, while being hunted by the same slayers seeking his magic-imbued heart, Evie must put her trust in Lachlann and seek out his clan for help. Only then will they discover what ancient blood flows through her veins.

Sweet slow-burn fantasy romance

This was a brilliant story from start to finish, I only wish there’d been more of it!

I loved Evie as a main character, she was the perfect blend of naïve and cynical – she’s obviously and understandably distressed when her world is turned upside down but she adapts to her situation at a convincing pace.

Lachlann is one of my all time favourite heroes. He’s kind, persistent without being icky and doesn’t take himself too seriously. There were some scenes with him that made me genuinely laugh out loud.

Though this book has romantic elements, this book is 100% clean and suitable for children. Obviously, I was a little bit disappointed by this! The elements that were missing in order to make this book suitable for younger readers are the elements that would have been the icing on the cake for me.

I would have liked Evie to have spent some more time being angry about her situation and then more focus on her near the end.
I listened to the audiobook version of this title, as narrated by Diana Croft, who can honestly do no wrong. She’s the most versatile narrator in terms of accents that I’ve ever listened too. She brings the characters to life and nails the Scottish accent!

If you’re looking for a satisfying and romantic story, with dragons and magic, then this is the book for you.

Action, love, and humor

Great story! Action starts immediately and doesn't let up! Evie's evolution throughout the story shows just how wrong first impressions can be.

Romance with dragons

Fun dragon romance book. well written. Narrator was incredible. The romance is the core for the story, but the action doesn't feel like an afterthought.
