Grier’s fiery passion for Salena might be everything his dragon ever wanted but loving her might just lead to the destruction of everything he’s trying to save.
With all that is happening in his land, the upcoming shifter mating ceremony is the least of Grier’s concerns. Even though he is heir prince of the dragon-shifters, he doesn’t have the authority needed to help the humans stranded in dragon territory, nor can he banish those who ruthlessly control them. Yet honor demands he finds an opportunity to intervene, and he hopes that doing so won’t start a war the shifters can’t win. Discovering his destined mate couldn’t have come at a worse time.
Salena knows what it is like to be a pawn of the Federation. They might have kidnapped her and brought her to this strange territory, but she will never do what they want of her… what everyone wants of her. The last thing the fugitive needs is the very public attention of a fierce dragon prince claiming they’re fated by the gods—even if the sexy man makes her burn in more ways than one.

“All men are equal in the search for happiness.”
Some may think Salena has a gift, but after a lifetime of experience she knows not only is it a curse, but those who are ethically challenged will hunt her to the ends of the galaxy to use her for purposes she’d rather not think about.
Grier is a Prince who will someday be King, as such he looks at Shelter City and recognizes it for the complicated situation it is. A powder keg on the verge of exploding in their faces, a place his people don’t have dominion over, yet feel as though they are being prevented from living in harmony with as well.
This done in one story establishes the situation on Qurilixen, introduces a LOT of fun and interesting characters, and opens an arc about a group of refugees struggling to know who to trust… their governing body doesn’t seem to have their best interests at heart, those who gave them the land seem to look down on them while denying them help, a planet that has resolved its own risks of civil war in the past may be on the verge of a new variation on that old theme, only this civil war may be between natives and aliens making a home on their world, unless cooler minds can prevail.
I was gifted with a copy of this book and chose to share my review.
This is the first book in the Qurilixen World that I have read, and I thought that it was very entertaining. The shifters, whether related or not, had a good rapport with each other, and their antics made me laugh. The author managed to give the reader a good sense of each character’s personality just by their verbal interactions, and even with all of their different quirks, I loved them all. Grier was so sweet that I couldn’t help but fall for him, and Salena made the perfect mate for him. As for Grace, Jaxx, Payton, Roderick, and the others, I can’t wait to read their stories.
Fantastic Start to the Series!
The Qurilixen story continues with the stories of the children of the original princes’s of the Var and Draig. Thirty years earlier the Draig and Var, due to their generous nature, allowed a temporary settlement to be set up on Quilixen of survivors of a deadly virus that almost wiped out their planet. Unfortunately the settlement is under the control of the Federation. Shelter City is basically a huge slum and the shifters are not allowed to interfere. But things have gotten so bad that it is starting to spill over into the Var and Draig lands. But no one wants to start a war with the Federation, because failure is a given.
Grier is the future king of the Draig. Salena is a prisoner of the Federation that has managed to escape and hide near the Draig Palace. When they meet and Grier’s chrystal lights up he knows she is his future queen. She doesn’t want to leave Grier but she knows if the Federation finds out he is hiding her and they don’t surrender her it will start a war. Will they have to give up their happiness for the good of all the shifters?
