The world building is to die for. These are people who choose not to live among us but easily could. The tie back to Masters of Valor is there, but this story stands on its own. It didn’t take long for me to be totally drawn into the story. I really didn’t want to leave it!The Reluctant Retiree
You cannot escape your fate. Especially when it involves a dragon who claims to be your fated mate.
Aria’s visions of something old, powerful, and angry coming combined with her seriously sexy dream sharing with a dragon shifter have confused her. Her visions have proven true too often to ignore. But dragon shifters can’t be true. Right? When a dragon lands in front of her while hiking, her whole world shifts. He is the dragon from her dreams and is claiming, she is his fated mate.
Darius has just accepted leadership of his clan and is headed home when he sees a human female. She is trekking up the side of a mountain and he realizes she’s his fated mate. What’s a dragon to do? Simple, fly down, pick her up, and take her home. Once there, he discovers that there is more to Aria than meets the eye. She is the key to beating the evil that is coming.
Can the fated couple survive the coming storm and embrace a future together?
Sue T. 4.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a new series! Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 28, 2022 Verified Purchase Darius and Aria are the perfect couple…after all who can say no to a dragon…but then again, Aria is no pushover! This started off a bit slow which is understandable as the author needed to develop the method behind the storyline, and then it takes off and continues to sizzle the pages of your kindle. Looking forward to what comes next!

Sara B. VINE VOICE 4.0 out of 5 stars Steamy new series Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 1, 2022 This series spins off from Masters of Valor where Darius is introduced when Gillian is kidnapped and brought back to her clan of origin. Ford followed and defeated the Alpha but declined to assume clan leadership which allowed Darius to be chosen as Alpha. Aria is a talented outdoor guide who has been having visions/nightmares and premonitions of an approaching evil. She is also having incredibly hot dreams of a sexy dragon who claims her as his mate. These bonding dreams are intense. When Darius lands in front of her in dragon form and then shifts into a human male, Aria id both highly aroused and scared. Darius claims her to be his and flys off with her to his hidden village. Aria’s dreams didn’t prepare her for the bossy attitude and determination Darius would have to have her obey him or for her to suffer the consequences of his discipline. These two battle for dominance and then give in to the scorching hot attraction between them. Darius is determined Aria is going to be a well behaved drakaina and to set a good example for the clan’s other drakaina. He is equally determined to keep her safe and away from the dangerous fight with evil that is imminent. I thoroughly enjoyed this new series and am excited to see how Aria’s two best friends will fold into the future books and the dragons vs evil storyline. Initially it took me several chapters to get comfortable with the storyline and all the new characters since Gillian and Ford are mentioned but don’t actually appear as part of the story. There was also a significant amount of mythology to absorb that will be an underlying plot throughout this series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
