The Dragon and the Wolf
Just go for it…
Westley Stone didn’t expect to survive being kidnapped and tortured by hunters, but he did, and only because a dragon literally dropped out of the sky to save him, and after waking up in the man’s house, he can’t help but feel grateful, and very attracted to his rescuer.
Chris Knucker has a thing against werewolves ever since his family was killed, but
Westley is under pressure to take a wife and produce pups for his pack, and since he' ...more
Unfortunately it drags: there is hardly any rhythm, hardly any tension. It simply fails to keep its reader's interest awake.
Characters feel distant and one cannot relate to them.
I could try and excuse it as a prequel, but it's not the ...more
A very poor start to a series. Book just ended. It seems like this was a setup to the m/f book, which while I liked the two main male characters in this short story, I didn't like them enough to buy a m/f book. This book had soooo much potential, I mean a wolf and a dragon? Yeah! But ultimately it failed and the fade-to-black sex scenes...not my thing. Even for .99 cents, not sure I can recommend this one.
Then came the ending; then came the exact opposite. From 0 to 100 in about maybe two pages.
Besides the pacing issue, the story itself drug me in. The conflict between Westly and his father (which eventually creates Westly having conflicts with basically everyone else) made up a majority of the plot. Besides the werewolves, dragons, and all the oth ...more
This book left me so confused and overwhelmed from all the data, bits and pieces of every paranormal myth out there infused into a really short publication. This lacked transitional finesse, and while the writer tried to insert character conflict using the alpha-first-born-must-marry-a-fertile-young-female-sooner-rather-than-later theme, it all felt contrived, forced, and awkward amidst all the other drama and information overload. Way too ...more
This book was reasonably alright in term of writing. It wasn't bad, but wasn't anything spectacular either. It could have been a cute short read except for the brute axed ending that feel like someone ate the other half of the book and the author couldn't bother rewriting it.
It wouldn't had been too bad had it been in a continuous series, but instead the actual series was just a bunch of barely connected MF.
It seemed to be a strange decision to include this book as the prequel for the ser ...more
Loved the characters. Too short for me. I had to lower my rating as I realized this seems to become more Male to Female story lines. I prefer gay story lines as in the novella prequel. Plus there is a box set but I am not sure if and how much my Male characters from prequel are involved or not. Sorry but do not know if I will continue or not. Plus single books are close to 8 dollars each. The set is a great deal but as in above not sure what to do.
One disadvantage of having too many books on your e-reader is that you can’t remember every book you have already read. If this is happening, it means that a book didn’t leave any kind of impression. Yesterday, The Dragon and the Wolf, came back to life (once again) and now I’m finished with this short/prequel, to the M/F Romance called The Legend of the Werewolf.
This fellow gets 2 Stars.
It’s a plain, but still nice written story about the dra ...more
Westley has been captured by hunters and cant seem to think of a way to escape. He knew his birthmark would land him in trouble one day.
Christopher Knucker can't ignore the suffering of the person being tortured by hunters so he flies in to the rescue. Little did be know what the man would mean to h ...more
Things that weren't so great for me... when the characters needed to add backstory for things to make sense (world building), it felt very amateurish. I think it could have been built in a little better instead of just stating it flat like it was. The romance part was a bit cliche as well. And then it ...more
Poor Westley, a wolf shifter, is kidnapped and tortured, only to be rescued by a dragon shifter named Chris who has issues because his family was killed by wolf shifters. But he can't help but feel drawn to Westley, the only issue is that of course Westley is supposed to be the next Alpha and is expected to marry his best girl-friend and produce the next g ...more
It's an okay short story. It's written well enough, nothing deep and emotional and there are some editing errors.
However, a short story that sells itself as a 'prequel' or a back story sort of book (as most '.5' books are), I was disappointed that there was zero resolution to the story of Chris and Wes.
From what I can see, book 2 is about a whole other couple. I'm assuming, since we had a fade to black sex scene, this was the authors first attempt at ...more
