About the Author
USA Today bestselling author Shay Roberts writes in the paranormal fiction and fantasy genres. He believes that every proper book should have both romance and epic battles. Shay, a medieval combat expert, is the founder of the Academy of Arms, a non-profit medieval martial arts school in Los Angeles. He is an instrument-rated pilot with an MA in Screenwriting, a BS in Biology, and a BA in English. Shay has been writing stories since he was old enough to hold a crayon. Unfortunately, he wrote those stories on the walls.

Roberts, in true form, introduces and develops his characters with charm and style. His knowledge of medieval combat, along with both historical and original, creative inventions keep the reader interested even as an aside from the labyrinth of a plot. Roberts unfolds Tyler's journey and Dragon Blood's scenarios with innovative challenges and road blocks along the way, and once you reach the end, you have come full circle.
This is my favorite Heartblaze Novel of Roberts' to date, even though I feel the same each time I read another installment in this series! Dragon Blood has it all: mystery, intrigue, love, loss and hope, this is a must for any paranormal lover's shelf!
(And it is by far my favorit so far). My opinion and unbiased review is a matter of integrity. I was given this book as an ARC, in exchange for a impartial opinion. This does not change, impair, steer or in any way change or influence what my opinion or reviews says.
Told from the dual POVs of Tyler Buck and Alexander Argyros, this book has a strong narrative with realistic and provocative characters. Tyler is the quintessential hero, unassuming and called to greatness, while Alexander is a textbook paranoid narcissist, convinced he is greater than anyone else and everyone is out to get him. This makes for some interesting internal dialogues.
There is some time travel in this book. Normally, this is a subject I find difficult to follow, but Shay Roberts presents it in a way that is clear and uncomplicated.
There were a couple of lines in the book that made me chuckle, but one in particular stood out. Describing a coworker, Alexander describes him as “a boy with all the charm of a syphilitic boil.” What a visual!
We again meet those knight's of Rome, from the other heart blaze books, and learn more about this frightening and dangerous organisation.
As with the other books, this is written from the perspective of different characters, and although at first seems a bit disjointed and difficult to follow, but very cleverly pulls together as you keep reading. Although having read other heart blaze books, I'm used to the style of writing. Also it only has two characters perspectives, so is less complicated than other heart blaze books.
I believe this could be read separate from the other books, although there is a slight overlap, so having read others previously would enhance your enjoyment of this book.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
