Half-human and half-wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful - and passionate - of the Elder Races.
As the most feared and respected of the wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they've ignited in one another.
A dragon, gryphons, and other Wyr creatures populate Harrison's steamy paranormal romance, the first in the Elder Races series. When Pia Giovanni's ex-boyfriend blackmails her into stealing from Dragos Cuelebre, Pia knows it's only a matter of time before the powerful dragon tracks her down. But instead of killing her, Dragos finds himself drawn to the half-human, half-Wyr thief. When the two are attacked and captured by goblins, Dragos and Pia realize that an old, powerful enemy of Dragos's wants them dead. Harrison goes beyond the usual vampires and werewolves to create an entertaining cast of supernatural creatures, but the action soon slows to a crawl and transforms into a series of misunderstandings between the lovers. Dominant Dragos is meant to be alpha-male sexy, but his constant bouts of possessive jealousy quickly grow tiresome, as does Pia's skittish, passive nature.
Sassy heroine and well written
Sassy heroine and well written not your run of the mill urban fantasy
Absolutely loved this book and the rest of the series lots of action and romance if your looking for something to read this is a good place to start.
Unfortunately very bad
Oh my... Where to start?
I luv books and easily get drawn into stories and make friends with the characters... Not this time!
The only reason I finished the book (and believe me, it was difficult), was because while the main characters and the story were so badly lacking - the author kept showing hints of what she and the story were capable of in the scenes with the sentinels.
Sadly there just wasn't any other good points.
Even with how much I luv the sentinels and Tricks, I couldn't even finish reading the sneak peek at book two.
Complete waste of money and a great disappointment. And I have to point out that I can usually find good in most books... There is just so little in this one that it makes no difference.
