A Lair So Fateful
From a dark, magic-ravaged world comes an enthralling new fantasy romance series. Five brothers, last of an ancient Alpha bloodline, each bound by fire and blood to their majestic dragons.
He demands her worship. Or he will bring her to her knees.
Uraya is desperate to live in peace. Having finally escaped the queen of the south, her goal is to vanish - to leave the war in the Twin Realms and start a new life.
But to get her freedom she must work with the most intolerable dragonlord across the Realms.
Known for reducing women into simpering worshipers, Sethorn ruins the lives of any woman he desires.
Uraya refuses to be his plaything…
And her defiance fuels his intense captivation with her.
In an effort to maintain her quest for serenity, Uraya is forced to bargain with him, but Sethorn rouses a sinful craving that he dominates.
Primal attraction erupts into savage, carnal hunger.
When the queen complicates their mission, Uraya realizes she is on the brink of losing not just the peace she has always dreamed of but every part of herself.
And if she doesn’t evade Sethorn’s obsessive claim on her, he will drag her to a fate of his choosing.
A LAIR SO FATEFUL is the fourth book in The Last Dragorai, an epic fantasy romance series. This series can be read as standalones but will be better enjoyed if read in order. Includes romance of a dark nature and a HEA.
Great Story even with errors
Love, love, love plot and characters! Not fond of all the grammatical errors, double sets of words or missing words. Needs better proof reading.
The darkest and steamiest in the series
Compared to the previous 3 installments of this wonderful series, A Lair So Fateful definitely was the darkest in my opinion with the edgiest hero. Sethorn was borderline not likable compared to the other dragorai. Although all the dragorai are arrogant by definition and well-known for their sexual appetites, Sethorn (initially) seemed to be the most callous and uncaring while demanding Uraya's absolute devotion. Sethorn was compelling in his frequent rages and the sex scenes were particularly intense, but I realized I wasn't compelled by him as I was the other dragorai because I didn't get the same sense of inner conflict.
I felt that he was a bit too quick to be suspicious of her and make her the enemy vs. the other dragorai who although equally of violent temper seemed to be conflicted between their adoration for their mates and their duty. Sethorn's duty seemed to be to Sethorn which made it a bit harder to buy into the push/pull dynamic as in the other novels. He did redeem himself of course at some point but I found his arc a bit less satisfying than the others' because I found that his ill temper dominated the novel vs. his transformation into romantic hero.
However, that being said, the worldbuilding as usual as the richness of the characters (all of them distinct from one another in each book so I really appreciated that) are second to none. I also will repeat that I love the insight into each character's POV without using 1st person lol, but that's just a personal preference of mine. I fully plan to re-read all previous books again so perhaps I will have a fresh perspective on this one and view Sethorn with a bit kinder eye. :)
I received an ARC copy of this book and this is my honest review.
This series gets more exciting with each book! Book 4 is about Sethorn and Uraya, who is introduced in the last book. This book overlaps book 3 and the attack on the queen.
In my opinion you really need to have read at least the last book to follow and to really enjoy this series start from book 1.
Sethorn is the intellectual dragorai, still all alpha, and quite conceited. Having been pursued, adored, idolized and obsessed over for centuries, he is wholly unprepared for Uraya. She is indifferent to him and doesn't understand what the fuss is all about.
Really enjoyed how much Uraya took Sethorn down a peg by withholding compliments!
Zoey has created this dragon world and I'm completely sucked in by another brother's book and the overall continuing story! I am going to to be impatiently waiting for Khyros' book and finding his dragon!!
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest opinion.
