Again, the author does a phenomenal job of packing a short story! I was once again very impressed by the details and emotionalism (even more so in this one). Readers are presented with this strong heroine who refuses to stand down. Though I have definitely not been in a similar situation (no dragon husband here), I very much appreciated the inspiring message of being fierce and not giving up. It was shown in such a beautiful way in this story.
Looking forward to reading more stories!
Theryn was taken in by the handsome and charming Roth. What she didn't know was that he is really a dragon and only cared for Theryn as a vessel for his offspring.
Theryn works to repel Roth's charm and physical strength against mounting peril to her and the egg growing in her.
It is an intense tale of strength, love, and hope.
This short story enraptured me from the very beginning to the last drop of ink. Bethany Jennings has mastered the flow and emotional melody of her craft. I was terrified, sickened, and in love with the characters like a puppet on a master's strings.
- Intricate world-building and a unique magic system, surprisingly in-depth for such a small read (but not overwhelming with details)
- Perfect pacing--it was never too fast or too slow. The perfect length for the story told.
- Great characters--sympathetic and realistic
- Excellent, beautiful writing style
- Umm… there's no sequel? Actually, I don't think it needs one. Sorry to be that reviewer, but I honestly can't think of anything I didn't like.
If you need a brief escape into a fantasy world for your dragon fix, pick up this book. You won't be disappointed.
- Offensive language: None.
- Sexual content: No explicit content. Mentions of passionate kisses between a husband and wife (off-scene). Birth scene is void of graphic details but is intense.
- Violence: Mild.
Recommended for all audiences 14+ due to the intensity of a survival situation and a birth scene.
This is a powerful and important story. Told in beautiful language, it will resonate with anyone who has been trapped as a victim in an abusive relationship. Reminds me of Heidi Joelle's Dragon and Priest, except the other side of the coin. Both short stories would make a great package set to illustrate spousal abuse and bringing children into the mix. <3
As it stands, this is a great little story about a woman trapped by an abusive husband. He just so happens to be a dragon. :-)
