They are the stuff of glittering legend, supersensual creatures able to shape-shift from human to smoke to dragon. Now they face an enemy determined to destroy their dazzling world of magic and passion.

It’s a stunning claim: the existence of a lost drákon tribe. And it comes from an intriguing source: a woman calling herself Princess Maricara of Transylvania. Alpha lord Kimber Langford, Earl of Chasen, can’t ignore the possibility. For whoever this unknown princess may be, she’s dangerous enough to know about his existence—and where to find him. And indeed, it isn’t long before Maricara breaches the defenses of Darkfrith and the walls around Kimber’s heart.

Yet the princess arrives with urgent news: a mysterious serial killer is targeting the entire drákon race. To save their kind, Kimber and Mari must ally themselves body and soul in a battle that can spell their salvation, their extinction…or both.

~My Review~

Not my favourite in the series, but still a good book. The heroin being the princess from the castle in the mountains we have been reading about in glimpses since book one was a refreshing change. She had a different feel to her than the two women from Smoke Thief and Dream Thief - I loved that she challenged everything that the Alpha and counsel threw at her.

My favourite part about Queen of Dragons was the introduction of a real enemy to the race. I won't spoil anything, but I was tired of these powerful beings living in fear from an unseen enemy, it made the story that much more riveting to finally have an opponent worth fearing.

Another great historical para-romance. The next has something to do with time travel wich I am eager to read about.

My Rating: 4/5
