This book had a slow start for me. It felt a bit hazy, like I couldn't envision the world crearly. But about a third into it, it really changed for me. The story became a lot more interesting. The plight of the draegans was writtrn well and had some bold plotlines of opression, even genocide.
Kieran and Gaige were extremely hot together. I really enjoyed them.
Overall good fantasy. I would recommend.

This was a very enjoyable book and the first book with a dragon I've read.
Gaige and Keiran are very good characters. I liked that at the beginning Gaige was oblivious of Keiran's identity, but he was captivated by the qualities as a leader that Keiran couldn't suppress. There is an incredible physical attraction between them. Since I love anticipation, I thought that it came a bit too early in the book, but it's also tr...more
Dragons - check (well, they’re dragon shifters but who cares)
Hot shifter sex - check
M/M - check
Likable characters - check
A little non-con - check
Bondage thrown in for good measure - check
What’s not to like here? Admittedly, I do have a thing for dragons so I could possibly be a tad biased but…I doubt it.
Dark wizard Byram from Velensperia has been perpetuating the myth that his people are the underdogs to the sinister draegans & must be eradicated; however, it turns out the...more

Gaige is passionate, kind, loyal and strong but he's managed to hide it all behind cold ruthlessness as he performs his duties for the High Sorcerer. The draegan rebels are gaining strength and Gaige is charged with infiltrating their camp, discovering their s...more
I love finding a new author that knows how to write a good shifter book. Gaige , AKA, the White Panther, is the leader of the High Guard for one evil sorcerer. Gaige is sent to spy on and kill the leader of the Draegan shifters. During his search he falls in lust with Keiran one hot ( and hairy :)) Draegan with whom he shares guard duty. So what's the problem? Keiran is the leader of the Draegan Lords. The book leads you though lust, betrayal, torture, capture, and rescue. It's a f...more
I'm speechless and don't know what to review. What makes me give this only 4 stars are because the lack of setting description and there are things that left unexplained while I want it explained. It's also cliche in some ways, but HEL if I don't love cliches!
And though Bryam was antagonist, somehow I want to read his and Geige's father story. Old man love! Disgusting, maybe, but still want to read their kink.
This first book in the series had a beautiful ending for our lovers, but it left many things undone in the war of a despotic leader against the draegons, which makes me happy knowing there are several more books to go. Can't wait.
Recommended for anyone who enjoys this genre :)
A hundred years ago, the high sorcerer of Velensperia launched a swift and deadly attack against the Draegans--a race of dragon shapeshifters who’d always lived in harmony with the humans. The Draegans were all but destroyed, with the few who remained scattered and in hiding. Now, a group of them have united and begun to fight back. Their leader, Keiran Hareldson, seeks to free his people from the cruel repression the high sorcerer's reign has imposed on them.

Keiran is the strong,...more
Parts of this were very much like just a m/m version of Dragon Actually, but given that I thoroughly enjoyed that book, it didn't detract from the story too much.
My favorite thing about this was getting to see the development of the relationship between Gaige and Kieran. And from the reviews I've read of book 2, that just keeps getting better. So, I can't wait!
I loved that we got to head-hop. It was fun to get to see Gaige trying to hide his almo...more
