Now they must face a powerful dark mage to rescue her family, and if that's not enough, they still have to find the dragon who betrayed Ladon to the humans.All of this while dealing with a mating heat that burns hotter than dragon fire.
Since I love Kelly Lucille’s paranormal Keeping Her Series, I thought I’d try The Dragon’s Mage, especially since it’s been on my kindle app for awhile. Even better, it can go towards my TBR challenge so double score! Things seem a bit darker in this series. The trademark humor is still there, it just takes longer to get to it. The element of danger shows up from the very beginning and the action never lets up until the very end.
In this world, magic is the norm as are the dragons who have mostly kept to themselves in their own territory, preferring to leave mankind to its own devices. This was not a good thing since blood mages with their corrupted magic have taken over, terrorizing and killing humans plus causing untold damage to the earth itself.
Morgan, a good mage, finds herself captured by the blood mages after sacrificing herself so her siblings can get away. Held prisoner with a young man who she knows is also a young dragon, she makes the decision to save him since she’s pretty sure her future is short lived and hopeless. Lagon, the young dragon, saves her in return and figures out she’s his mate even though he’s not quite and adult dragon himself and still needs to go through his final molt. Having been betrayed by one of his own and not knowing who to trust in his own house, he turns to the scariest dragon of them all for help, Ebon. Trouble is, Morgan is Ebon’s mate too making for quite the awkward situation.
A different book than I expected, it was still filled with action, intrigue, cute as a button kids, and humor. What really made it for me though was the two extremely arrogant dragons and their equally determined damsel in distress who had a thing or two to teach her two hard headed dragons. The hot and steamy sex scenes were just the icing on my dragon themed cake. I can’t tell you how thrilled I was when I realized there were three more books out in the series. Yay!
