There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I could try and excuse it as a prequel, but it's not the first in the series and the sequel is about another couple entirely. Which suggests to me that there isn't to be much more of Westley and Chris' story, even if they do happen to be in the next book.
The writing seemed pretty good, but it's a teaser at best.
There is very little if any character growth and the best this story has to offer is over with too soon. Heck the erotic part of the story is feeble and half assed. I would excuse that if this were a story where it is about overcoming a problem but it’s not, and I’d excuse the poor story if it were about the sex, but it’s not.
I hate saying this about written work really but I wouldn’t recommend this at all even if it’s free. It’s a sad waste of time, you expect more and it’s just a disappointment to read.
The characters were given enough dimension that the story and characters were believable. I really enjoyed this story until about the middle of it.
It seemed like the author just lost the story line or something and just wanted to finish it.
This had a lot of potential and it was just kinda' tossed out the boat with an unfinished story. I'm really bummed about this because it is a prequel but the next book isn't even about these two characters. I wish there was more because the story was good! Then it just wasn't.

The writing was OK, story too but it just teases you and pulls you in making you want more, or it did me. There needs to be more background for my liking. You are left high and dry at the end. What about Gordon, and Annie, do Chris and Westley bond properly or does Gordon get his way, and can a wolf and a dragon be happy together; also what of the hunters and the young sympathetic hunter? All these and more questions are not answered in this book and therefore I had to but the next one. Hopefully it won't leave me high and dry before book 3. This and the next books probably could have all been under one title which, possibly, would make for a better read.
I loved the main characters, especially Chris, who constantly made me smirk while reading.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars, was because I felt as though this was only half a book. I could have sat and read so much more. There were things that could have happened, but simply didn't. I won't say what, in case someone deciding to read or not reads the reviews. But I can't help but wonder if Chris and Westley's story will be continued at some point in another book centered around them. I hope so. Because this pairing is just so awesome to read.
I'd only recommend this book to people who weren't bothered.
Als er in die Hände grausamer Jäger fällt, die alles töten, was nicht menschlich ist, wird er von dem Drachenwandler Chris gerettet. Natürlich ist er dem Mann dankbar, doch Chris weckt auch Gefühle in ihm, die weit darüber hinausgehen.
Aber was empfindet der andere Mann für ihn? Drachen leben angeblich alleine und binden sich niemals. Soll sich Westley zu seinen Gefühlen bekennen und damit als Gay outen, wohl wissend, dass sein Vater dies niemals akzeptieren wird?
Schon im Klappentext wird darauf hingewiesen, dass „The Dragon and the Wolf“ von Mandy Rosko ein Prequel zu „The Legend oft the Werewolf“ ist. Die Story ist richtig gut geschrieben und gibt Einblicke in ein interessantes Urban-Fantasy-Universum, die Lust darauf machen, weitere Geschichten zu lesen.
Was mich allerdings ein wenig gestört hat, ist das dumpfe Gefühl, eine nicht in sich abgeschlossene Story gelesen zu haben. Prequel hin oder her, am Ende dieser Geschichte sind sehr, sehr viele Handlungsfäden noch offen. Ich war völlig verblüfft, als nach 85% plötzlich „The End“ da stand und anschließend nur noch eine Leseprobe für den das nächste Buch zu finden war.
Fazit: Netter Lesehappen für Zwischendurch und knappe 4 Punkte, weil die Geschichte halt nicht wirklich für sich alleine steht.
It wouldn't had been too bad had it been in a continuous series, but instead the actual series was just a bunch of barely connected MF. It seemed to be a strange decision to include this book as the prequel for the series, since MM reader like me won't bother with it.
