He was still just as immature as before and even though he was 19 he didn’t feel like there was any growth to his character. Plus I was seeing the same grammar issue here as when Kendra was introduce in book 3. Where it’s written in 3rd person but you get sentences like “Lumie, Goldie and Daddy went to the store.”
I only finished chapter 3 and, it was just a dull storyline for me. I tried skimming to later chapters to see if something would pique my interest to keep reading but there was not.
I do believe part of it is because the main conflict from the first 5 books was solved. But since I did not finish this book I don’t know if that conflict was picked up here. If it wasn’t then I feel this would have been better to set it as an adjacent series in the same universe rather than a continuation of the Supernatural Consultant series.
Dragon Lesson is the sixth novella in the series and thrill of all, for me, it's Lumie's story. As the stories progressed from book one, Lumie has been the most unique and curious of Dane and Mercury's dragon kits. Now he's all grown up and experiencing the pangs of first love and adulthood as he faces the challenge of college and his first job outside of home.
I loved meeting Lumie's match in Goldie, the timid, quiet yet quite skilled elemental dragon. Goldie wants to overcome his fears and be worthy of Lumie who he thinks is losing patience with him for being so timid. The pair have a strong adventure together both in the start of love and their mission for the government. It was neat to finally get the secret behind Lumie's special brand of magic that goes beyond what a dragon normally has.
The author has a great talent for getting inside her dragons' minds. As each chosen kit gets to tell his story as he reaches adulthood, she gives them a personal and fascinating outlook and individuality. Lumie was a little cocky and even a little lazy because he is so powerful and he faces his first real challenges in the big wide world. Goldie is slow into things, but he does eventually get there when he is most needed.
In the author's world of dragons, they can recognize their future mate, but still have to put in the work of a relationship, not to mention they have dragon traits that make their outlook very different from humans on the subject of relationships and everything else. The guys are cute and I loved seeing them work through their misunderstandings and engage in first love.
The tone is light and fun while still exciting. I've been raving about this series since the beginning and still encourage those looking for unique light and quick stories to give these sweeter M/M Urban fantasies a go.
Thankfully this doesn’t last long. Yes, he’s a bit whiny and is very lazy, but he’s still cheeky little Lumie underneath, doing unfathomable things with his magic just because he can. And the way he feels about Goldie is so sweet. He tries so hard to make the quiet, nervous dragon smile for him, wanting him to feel safe and be happy, but he’s also mature enough to realise that not even his crazy-wonderful magic can fix everything.
I liked Goldie too, even if he is very nervy and uncertain at first, and his sudden sadness over Lumie giving up on him seemed to come out of nowhere. I absolutely adored seeing him overcome his fears and take control of his powers. He’s a strong dragon, but still sweet underneath, and a perfect match for Lumie.
It was also great to see Lumie face challenges for the first time. He’s pretty cocky about his abilities and how instinctive they’ve always been, so it was interesting to learn a little more about what they are and where they come from. I liked seeing the relationship between him and Goldie grow too. Just because Lumie’s always known Goldie was his mate, didn’t mean it was easy, so that was nice.
Away from these two, it looks like the overall plot has kick-started again, which is great because I was beginning to wonder just how much longer the series would continue. Now I have high hopes that there’s still plenty more to come, especially Alloy. This book needed more Alloy… because, apparently, I am never satisfied. Can’t wait for more!
