about

Harith is a dragon-shifter with something to prove. As the son of a clan chieftain, he has an impressive family legacy to live up to and a driving need to make his father proud. When this leads to a rash confrontation with monstrous enemies, his life will be changed forever. Nyssa seems to be nothing more than an ordinary peasant woman, but appearances can be deceiving. In truth, she is a fugitive, hiding from a barbaric clan of dragon-shifters who live in the northern wastes. Can she maintain her disguise, and if not, will her clansmen come to claim their own? Harith and Nyssa cross paths in the winter forest. From the start, a fire is kindled between them, but their way is not clear. She lives with the constant fear of discovery, and he is betrothed to another. Can their love win through these obstacles, and what if the northern dragons attack? Will Harith be able to protect his home and loved ones?

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent romantic fantasy read Dragons and magic make for an excellent romantic fantasy read Ok this author gets better with the second in the Dragon Clan series. Dragon Warrior captured my interests quicker and held them through until the very end. The pacing was steady throughout whether it was in times of action or the relationship building. That’s not to say that you don’t feel the excitement of battle and that the pace doesn’t quicken in such times as it should but rather that it doesn’t slow and have you losing interest when the action isn’t quick and fierce. To top that off she definitely turned up the heat in this one. Dragon Warrior is a tale of two clans actually. One where a despot ruler claims any female he wants and kills off any perceived competition. Aurek is aided in his evil machinations by a dragon sorceress. At the beginning of the story Nyssa watches as her brother is slain while trying to protect her. She is moments away from being brutally claimed by Aurek when suddenly they are literally frozen and suspended in time. Years later she is lucky that both her mother and her are some of the first that awaken and in the chaos that ensues they are able to sneak away. Life becomes one of impersonating humans in order to remain hidden and survive. Nyssa is self-sufficient and independent if not rather lonely. Her mother has magically blocked their telepathic abilities and forbidden their change to drake form. While she has the occasional hook up with the local blacksmith he is definitely not mate worthy. On the other hand the young dragon warrior she happens upon while out hunting is more than worthy. Harith is grievously injured in a fight with three trollkins, their ancient enemies. Nyssa is just able to save him by changing forms and dispatching his last opponent. Dragging him home she sets about healing him with the reluctant help of her mother. Finding out the dragon of her dreams is already promised to a princess of the human realm of Rhelaun doesn’t exactly make her happy. Harith is the heir to his clan and as such he has been promised to Ayelet, the princess of Rhelaun. Neither of them are particularly happy with the betrothal or each other. Duty and loyalty to his father and clan drive him. But lately he questions what life will be like stuck in the loveless relationship he is destined for. Harith wants the love and happiness that his father shares with his human mate. When he awakens from his injuries to find himself in the company of Nyssa and her mother he spends his time while healing falling rapidly in love. Unable to call out to his father telepathically curtesy of Nyssa’s mother, he is isolated with the two women he believes to be human. As in most good stories old enemies have a habit of turning up like bad pennies. Things get heated. Love and life is on the line. Watching Harith come to terms with duty, loyalty and love was truly enjoyable. Watching Nyssa regain the freedom to be herself and find love along the way was gratifying. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone that loves dragons, magic and a great love story. A review copy was provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.
