Abigail Owen í 3 charactersSex as some sort of calming agent to make Kasia s visions less painful Side note The whole relationship dynamic between Kasia and Brand reminded me of Amanda Bouchet s Kat and Griffin in A Promise of Fire Kingmaker Chronicles but I actually preferred In Defense of a Liberal Education her characters as well aser world building to Owen sSpeaking of world building This is my first dragon shifter book so the concept took some getting used to but overall I found the world building a bit simplistic our world plus dragons that rule various parts and are at war the super special phoenix wolf shifters a random demon a witch but still fun to read about My main issue Gender Is Fair Game however was that you only meet male dragons for a good part of the book which makes you wonder Then comes the answer you didn t really want female dragons are not only exceedingly rare but also sterile Sexist much I m seriouslyoping this will get resolvedexplained somehow in the next booksThen there is the issue of immortality When authors make their characters centuries old immortal beings I need to believe that to be true within the framework of the novel Sure there is no reference point duh but within the portrayal of a character s actions and traits I want to be able to say Yep I d buy that And you guessed it I don t buy it Wybór wierszy here The respective ancient beings age is just casually mentioned from time to time but in Kasia s caseer character does not convey 500 years of wisdom and experience or even jadednessAnother cause for my ambiguity was the writingSometimes it felt unpolished and just not fluid enough the sex scenes were often full of clich d phrasings and descriptive adjectives that made me cringe an orgasm becomes that glorious edge to be tipped over during which 11 Before 12 her body sueezesim like a vise like a fist and of course she lets out a keening moan boobs are those gorgeous pale globes or pink tipped breasts I could go on and on but I think you get the picture And then the writing was often uite funny and enjoyable Here is an exchange between Kasia and Brand Growing irritated with POISONS D'AVRIL his attitude Kasis proceeded toave a conversation with The Theory Of Industrial Organization herself filling in Brand s part forim What do you think of your new digs Kasia she rumbled in a deep bass LAbyssin her attempt at a Brand impersonation She even pretended toave bulging muscles lifting Promise of Power her arms up to pretend to stand likeimIn a falsetto she answered Ever Dark her own uestion This place is intimidating and ostentatious Brand but I think I can look past that Thanks for asking Another round of Brand in fake low voice I only want you to beappy Kasia The real Brand Christian Faith 101 half sighedalf growled Kasia She ignored The Math Workshop him continuinger part in a sueaky voice Aww You re such a teddy bear Boo boo Boo boo The disgust in Babys Bathtime his voicead Kasia bursting out laughing My imaginary Brand likes it when I call She Left Me the Gun him Boo boo Brand s jaw clenched Noe wouldn t You don t get to dictate what my imaginary Brand likes or doesn t like I ve known Alorns Treasure (Griffin Pirate Stories Series 2 Book 20) him longer than you But Brand cut offis own argument and shook Its Just Been Glorious hisead I can t believe we re talking about this Kasia shrugged You brought it up I was Cell having a lovely conversation with you As you can see I m still rather ambivalent towards that book And yet I am invested enough to find outow the story continues especially since the ending already segues into the next part leaving many uestions unanswered After a HFN with Brand and Kasia in this book the plot continues in The Blood King with Skylar and LadonMy advice If you re planning on reading this lower your expectations and accept this book for what it is not overly developed deep or innovative but enjoyable that s Bloody Acquisitions (Fred, the Vampire Accountant, how in the end Iad fun reading about Brand and Kasia and their journey Hence 325 starsAfterthought Maybe I m so critical because I ve been
