Genre: Paranormal Romance

Trapped in an alien spacecraft through no fault of her own, Jessie Knight is jettisoned into space and intercepted by a mysterious group of soldiers who call themselves dragon shifters. Thrust into a world of myth, legend, and danger, she discovers she may not be entirely human as she begins to develop latent powers that both captivate and mystify her. Placed under the protection of a gorgeous dragon shifter named Orik, she quickly realizes she must conceal her new abilities or be declared his enemy.
No one knows better than Orik Theroux of the King’s Guard that witches are heartless and ruthless killers who must be stamped out of existence. Orphaned by a group of them at a young age, he has vowed to destroy every last witch who crosses his path…until he begins to fall for an exquisite human female who turns out to be more than she seems. When the palace is besieged by witches, he must decide if he can trust Jessie with his life…and his heart.


My thoughts…

When Jessie ends up on an alien planet, the last thing she expects is humans who can turn into dragons. Add onto that hostile witches, and the fact that she is starting to exhibit abilities herself. Let’s just say that Jessie is completely out of her realm on this.

Even though this is the second book in the series, I didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything. They elude to some things that happened in the previous book, but the readers and Jessie get filled in on it all rather quickly. I liked that the author did this because I was able to jump right into the series even though I didn’t read the first book. I also liked that the author took the time to give us Orik’s backstory. It gave you a better understanding of his stance against witches and why he might not be so generous to find out that the woman he’s attracted to might be one.

With this story being in both Jessie’s and Orik’s point of view, we really got a good understanding of both characters. We were privy to what motivates them and who they are deep down. I liked that I never looked at Orik as just a bit brute, or at Jessie for being naive or careless in wanting to get out and explore what is essentially a foreign and hostile land. Plus, as things unfold, both with Jessie developing some sort of power and gaining the attention of a nearby coven, and Orik battling his feelings for a potential witch while dealing with attacks on the royal family by a hostile coven of witches. You are always waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I may be new to new to this author’s work, but I really enjoyed the world she created. Plus, I need to know what happens next. I mean, in the end do the witches and dragons call a truce? Are they in a constant state of war? Needless to say I will be tuning in to the next Dragon Lords book to see how the series unfolds.
