However, when William’s investigation takes an interesting turn, they must put aside years of bad blood and a mutual distrust of outsiders to band together to save the British Islands from its deadliest foe…
Night of the Highland Dragon by Isabel Cooper
Night of the Highland Dragon was a fun, fanciful, historical, dark paranormal adventure.
Detective William Arundell is investigating the death of a young man in a remote area of the highlands. His investigation brings him to MacAlasdair Castle, where a family of shape shifting dragons reside, namely Judith MacAliasdair.
Judith MacAliasdair is a dragon shifter, wary of outsiders, she is reluctant to assist William in his investigation until an evil presence is revealed. Judith recognizes that without William’s help they might all fall to this new threat.
The attraction is slow building, with a careful amount of wariness even though the sexual chemistry is strong.
With this read of the Highland Dragon series, I felt that I was missing something. The plot seemed disjointed and I don’t know whether to chalk that up to unfamiliarity with the previous storylines or not.
I’m a huge dragon, especially shape shifting dragon, fan so that was a big plus for this book.
Night of the Highland Dragon provides a good bit of humor, intrigue, mystery, and dark fantasy which I enjoyed. I found the story entertaining but would like to revisit past stories to see if it would improve my perception of the story's flow.
I received this ARC copy of Night of the Highland Dragon from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca in exchanged for a honest review. This book is set for publication June 1, 2015.
