I am Glheanna the Decimator. I am a warrior. A soldier. I know no fear. No pain. No mercy. I do, however, know acute embarrassment! How could I not after getting dumped by a bastard dragon in front of my own troops? So I tuck tail and return to my cave, drowning my sorrows in ale—as is my family’s way. But instead of leaving me to my misery, I’ve been summoned to the Dragon Queen’s court.
As if my life wasn’t pathetic enough, Her Majesty now has me escorting the highborn Bram the Merciful through dangerous territories—not exactly the best use of my military training. And just so he can negotiate with enemy dragons instead of battling them? Honestly, what has my world come to? Then again…Bram is quite easy on the eyes. And the perfect distraction for what ails me. Perhaps I’m looking at all this the wrong way. Maybe there is a place for a little “mercy” in my life…
What do you get when you take amazing, quirky, outrageously funny, annihilating dragon warriors and incredible fantasy world building? Dragon on Top, a marvelous new romantic comedy with a heavy dose of paranormal fantasy, that I absolutely devoured.
Bram has watched Glhenna for years with the hope to one day catcher her eye. Well, the queen of the dragons is about to hand him his chance.
Glhenna is forlorn, she was embarrassed by a lover in front of her troops, then called on by the queen to escort the diplomat Bram the Merciful on a diplomatic mission. She feels things just can’t get worse…until Bram starts wedeling his way into Glhenna’s heart. Its been a long time coming, well since this is a prequel, I guess I should say its fabulous finally getting the back story.
These raucous characters will jump off the pages with humor, love and life. Yes, we are talking about dragon shifters here. It is hard to pin point one thing that makes this series so riveting, but for me, I credit Aiken’s amazing talent to bring life to the written word.
A must read series for me, Dragon on Top was another fabulous addition to the Dragon Kin series. My only complaint, I'm greedy and wanted more!
