Highland Dragon Warrior was an interesting and pleasant read. It’s set in medieval times with magicians, sorcerers, dragon shifters, demons, and alchemy. It’s got mystery, action, and romance.
Sophie our heroine is a strong and determined women. She’s smart and stands up for what she believes in. Cathal our hero is a powerful and fierce warrior. He’s fiercely protective of his family and those he cares for and looks after.
I enjoyed the story. I loved the Scottish setting and the paranormal elements where fascinating. The author did a good job creating an intricate and appealing world, but man was the world-building extensive. I had a little trouble with the story; mainly their was just so much information with the world-building and historical aspects that the book felt slow. I also felt like I was back in school learning a lesson; especially when it came to Sophia’s alchemy and all the explanations that went into those scenes.
Now for the dragons their weren’t that many scenes with the dragon shifters and their magic. I would have liked more. Their also wasn’t much action either, until the very end, when Sophie’s soul is endangered.
As for the romance between Sophie and Cathal it was light and slow to bloom. I wish there was more interactions between these two to help build the romance. They spent a lot of time apart, watching each other across a room or briefly talking at dinner, but not doing much to move the romance along.
Highland Dragon Warrior is not a simple read. The world-building is extensive and various discussions that take place where excessive and a bit overwhelming. It’s an interesting set up and I’m intrigued, but I was a bit bogged down and felt like I was back in school.
Rated: 3 Stars

Personally I found this book pretty slow going with not a lot of action until the end. It builds and builds and then they get a break gleaning vital information about who and where "Valerius" home is. I found it fascinating learning about alchemy. I've never read a story like this in romance. It felt like something my son would find in his fantasy section of the bookstore. Romance almost played a back seat to the magic. Yes, Cathal and Sophia fall in love but it's not central to the story of saving Fergus.
Thank you Sourcebooks and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book. And thank you for giving me access to the next book in the series. I will be delighted to read and review it as well.
Sophia was the main female character, and she was a strong and determined woman. Sophia was a smart woman and I loved how she stood up for what she believed in. She was ready to take down any evil that came her way, which was really inspiring. I really liked that her Jewish faith was brought up because it is nice to see other religions brought up in novels. Cathal, the main male character, was a powerful and fierce warrior. He was fiercely protective and fought for those he cared about. Sometimes his protectiveness was a little overbearing, but I know he was coming from a good place.
The paranormal elements of this book were intriguing. I loved that the author created such an immersive and unique world. I will say that the world-building sometimes took over the plot of the book, which led to the book feeling very slow at times. I also think there should have been more scenes with the dragon shifters and magic. However, when the action was introduced with the dragons, the story was addictive and hard to put down!
The romance in this book was steamy and full of sexy moments. I thought the author did a great job at creating a delicious and steamy romance. I actually would have liked to see more romantic moments between the two and for it to develop with a slower burn, but it was still a good romance.
Overall, this was an interesting start to a series! I am intrigued to see how it continues to develop!
