Review: Each book in the Dragon Men collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
I came across Amber Kell when she published her first book awhile back and never stopped reading them. Most of the time they have their serious tones but there is quite a bit of humor mixed in with them that make them even more fascinating for me. Each story will have danger, excitement, adventure, and a touch of kink to them that will keep your attention the whole time, like it does for me.
Zeir is the king of his kingdom and is loved by all of his people. Many years ago he had lost his mate or so he thought. He grieved for the man and pretty much stayed in his dragon form. So you can imagine his surprise when a shuttle crashes onto his land and comes across his true mate. A mate that was related to the one he thought was his so many years before.
Colton is a very sweet and sexy young man who just crashed his pod. Colton’s captain was such an ass and changed his navigation causing them to crash. What Colton had never known was he could shift into his dragon form, he had assumed that since he was half dragon that he didn’t really have one. He is such a cute little golden dragon who could spit fire and ice. Only one that Zeir had ever seen once before, in a man that he had thought was his mate. However things are looking up since King Zeir is his mate.
Now I understand what Colton’s father had done, as Seltin was so young when Zeir had told him they were mates, but it was a coward’s way out. However he was scared to mate someone that wasn’t his mate. Blood calls to them, and as it turns out that it was his son who was Zeir’s true mate, things started to look up for them all.
I would have loved if this story had been a bit longer but it was a damn good story. Very fast paced and kept my attention throughout the whole story. The words just seemed to flow right off the pages and the detail was so perfect for this story. I always did love a good dragon shifter and Amber rocked it.
I love how this author doesn’t let the guys become too much alpha for their mates, making their heart bleed when they are hurt and for kicking their own asses when they hurt their mates. I have always enjoyed reading one of Amber Kell’s stories and I can see that it will not change in the future. I also loved how these men will go to the extremes to protect their mates.
