The hero is a complete jerk to the heroine from the moment they meet. They have exactly three interactions, none of them positive and the third being blatantly sexual, before they declare themselves in love. Not just in love, but loving having grown between them (in less than 48 hours). I never thought there was anything worse than insta-love but I was wrong. Love that's presented as having 'grown' between two people when it very obviously has been planted in such barren ash and hasn't, is in fact worse. And he never once apologizes for his behavior and she doesn't seem to expect it. It's abuse dressed up as romance and love. (See, here is where I would have dropped one of those curse words.)
Then there is the rest of the book, what little there is. Every obstacle is overcome with a deus ex machina solution. EVERY SINGLE ONE. Miranda makes allies of her enemies with nothing more than a hug and easy coincidental solutions present themselves left and right. Bah!
I did appreciate the lesbian (or bi) side character and the heroine's apparent bisexual leanings, even if it's obvious she's never going to pursue them. Having them there and legitimized was nice. I also appreciated that Miranda was given her own sexual agency and not made out to be a slut for having sex for pleasure. (Though this was compromised a little by her calling the consort a slut. Guess she can't give others the same courtesy she receives.)
The only thing I found interesting was the epilogue setting up book two. But I won't be reading it because I can just imagine all the ways the author could find to ruin it.
I have read many other paranormal stories that included dragons, which I would most likely suggest to other readers to pick up before this one.
I was extremely hopeful based on the number of initial stars this installment actually appeared to have been given by other readers, only to be disappointed.
The intensity was not there.
The supporting information was just....eh.
A waitress down on her luck at the age of 26, losing everything, and her desire to aspire for so much more.
The true American dream.
She is granted her wish by a lone customer at the beginning of her shift at the diner. A woman she was enthralled by left her an amazing tip while neglecting to pay for her meal ticket.
She opens a velvet pouch to find a necklace.
Then the fairytale begins.
She is transported to another world full of magic and unbelievable facts about what is really out there.
She attempts to lie to those who believe she is someone else, only to get caught, have her life threatened and prevail...turning into a dragon herself.
She finds love....of course.
The king, her betrothed, has his list of conquests he decides he would not give up even for her.
It may have been me, although I highly doubt so, but it really read like so many other books that just need more.
This one moves on in the series and leaves you with a cliffhanger of an epilogue...one in which I have survived and do not feel overly compelled to read on to see how the rest of the story may unfold.
I am okay with not knowing who her real father is...even if she was born of dragonblood.
I am okay with not knowing how all of the kingdoms are unaware of how they are all under attack and by whom.
I am okay with this being the end.
I would recommend this read just so you can get a lay of the land and an introduction to this world and the secondary plots that unfold for future books. But I wouldn't go into this one expecting to be blown away by the love story or the main characters for this book.
Happy Reading :)
Here begins a new story. Where Dragons rule all but the Elders. A planet of shifters until a human is transported accidentally. Or was she.
The Dragonlords of Xanakar is a new for me series. The mystery supplied kept my attention and I was glad for it.
