I don't tend to DNF books that I'm reading (especially when I'm almost done with them,like this time) but I seriously couldn't stand this book.I thought that this would be a good fantasy/new adult book but all I got were horny characters and major plot holes.
And I just couldn't ignore the fact that the main character/the dragon lady decided that it was okay for her to touched Michael,ya know, while he's unconscious.
"Even unconscious, her pheromones made him hard. She ran her hand over the rid

Kind of fun in a light, action movie sort of way, but the plot was pretty bare bones, the characters had moments of being amazingly dumb and didn't feel particularly well rounded or interesting in and of themselves, and there was no world building at all.

Where did the dragons come from (several times it was mentioned they "didn't exist" when the main character was a kid)? Why are they policed and protected by humans? When was Eternity (the human security force) formed? How do governments deal w

Different. I enjoyed the story & creativity.
Carissa is the sister to the king of dragons.

Born without a voice, she had learned how to borrow the voices of other dragons, but it had to be a dragon. He was most definitely not a dragon. Maybe that part of her lore was wrong. Maybe she could use anyone’s voice.

Michael is a human on the Elite squad - bodyguards to supernaturals. He’s investing dragon disappearances when he’s captured and chained in a cell. Carissa is thrown in with him.

When she attempts to steal his voice, Carissa doesn’t

I was given a rough draft from the author for an honest review...
First of all, the cover is absolutely amazing and it captures the book really well.
Michael is an investigator that has been around dragons all of his life. He respects them and loves his job. But one night finds his life altered.
Carissa finds herself locked in a cell with Michael. She doesn't completely understand what is going on and why she was captured, but when she looks at Michael, she knows that he is only one that can help h

I really enjoyed this story which is the first book of a new series about Dragons.

About 220 ish pages of entertainment and an interesting take on Dragon Shifters - I enjoy Julie Wetzel's books she has some really good ideas and knows how to incorporate them into a fun and light narrative.

The protagonists Michael and Carissa kept me entertained with their relationship, there was action and intrigue and the inner dragon voice is really amusing. I'm looking forward to the next book, hopefully it w

I found this book to be very unique. The little details about dragons, their colors and brooding were interesting. The voice thing really threw me for a loop. It was an odd birth defect that made things so much more complicated. The author spent so much time explaining dragons that the world & character building were a bit lacking. Still not bad. I did enjoy the story and its uniqueness. Will I read book 2? Maybe.

I'm not a huge fan of Dragon books but this one was pretty awesome. I loved that they had two sizes that they could turn into. The smaller dragon seems cute and adorable. The larger is huge and protective. The story is a little shaky at first but quickly picks up speed. Lots of hilarity, especially when Michael fumbles through being a dragon.
A fan of Wetzel's Kindling Flames series, I easily gravitated towards this book. She does a great job in writing a creative story. A vibrant and detailed s
Rating 3.5/5*

Dragons and humans live together in this paranormal story, but the dragons need guarding and that is the role of the Eternity Elite. The story jumps straight into the action with Michael Duncan chained to a wall and locked in a dungeon, unable to sit or drink. When a bundle of what he initially thinks are cloths is thrown into the cell, he hadn't anticipated it being the sister of the dragon King, Carissa Markel.  She is a powerful mage but is unable to speak unless she "borrows" th

I usually don't read New Adult books, not because they're older and I'm used to reading about teenagers and the like, but because I always have a hard time finding one that I like enough to actually finish. Of course, this one being about dragons certainly gave me enough incentive to see it through and I'm glad I did.

There was a lot going on plot-wise but I couldn't help but feel like it kept getting obscured every time the main characters thought about how much they wanted each other. It seeme

Not what I was expecting. The overview of the book sounded interesting, and it received good reviews, what I got was a dragon romance book. The book centered around sex with an action backdrop. If I would have known this I would not have read it.

However, if you are into romance, sexual frustration and nonstop horny situations then this is a book for you. I did a quick look at the other books in the series and they don't seem to be connected.

As I am not into dragon porn, I think I will pass on

So I judged a book by it's cover and it's name apparently. I simply can't say more about this book other than I was disappointed. I was looking forward to an enthralling adventure about the mystical creature that a dragon is and instead I got...... Well you'd have to read it to find out because I will not retell the story. Maybe someone else might like it and I wont spoil it for others. 2 stars. Sorry. And you only got the two stars cuz I liked the cover and t

Wetzel probably a good time writing this, but I’m not into urban fantasy soft porn—even among dragons. The plot and most “action” involved supposedly mature people who act like teens. Hormonally-challenged teens.

Nope, not much to recommend it. Why not one star? She’s actually a good writer. Judging from her website (only) I guess she specializes in hot romances. There are those who will appreciate this … stuff. But not me.

Cover art is apparently computer generated and not that good.
InD'tale Magazine

Ms. Wetzel has deftly written a fantastic tale of dragons living among humans.

Read full review in the 2015 May issue of InD'tale Magazine.

The writing is amateur, the plot stupid and the hero unlikeable.

Got only 18%


Hero's past whores and ex's constantly brought up. Didn't get any further to know anything else.

Glad this was free.

I really don't like leaving ratings below 3 stars but I just had to. When I got the book from Amazon, I thought the cover promised adventure and a lot of action. But when I read it, I didn't like it.

First, I don't know what world this was or what time. I was left to figure it out by myself.

Second, I thought there was going to be some quest or action. Yeah, there were scenes of action but it felt like it's not the main point.

Then, there's the characters. Why are they just so horny?

The h is sweet, dragon shifter and she saves the H. He is human until she turns him, and then the fun begins. It's almost a childish plot, very much a PG story with goodies and baddies. I would have liked a darker and more mature plot, - just OK. ...more

This book was different from any other dragon book I've read. I like dragon stories and read them often. As I said, this one was different but it was different in a good way.

Michael is a member of the Eternity Elite, who are guards in charge of guarding the King of the Dragons and his sister, too. Michael is chained to a wall, can't sit or get any water when a bundle of "something" gets tossed into the cell with him. He hasn't had any food or water for several days and when the bundle starts to
This book really surprised me. It is far and away my favorite book so far this year. I always enjoy Julie Wetzel’s writing style and get lost in her stories, but this one really wow’ed me. First off, it’s really fast-paced. Michael and Carissa escape from a dungeon but just keep getting into sticky situations one right after the other. I laughed out loud several times as their escapades took a devilishly unexpected and absolutely delightful twist. Through it all, Michael is a decent, gentlemanly ...more

I’ve hosted a lot of Wetzel’s books on my blog, but I’d never read one her books before. Even though the plots were intriguing, she writes fantasy and that I didn’t read. Until I did. Now that I’m a fantasy fan, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one of her books. Man, am I glad I did. I absolutely loved On The Accidental Wings of Dragons.

The book has everything I look for in a great story: likeable characters, suspense, romance and a bit of intrigue. I especially enjoyed how Wetzel created a f

A very original read. We are so used o have the female changing to fit the male that it is very surprising when the opposite happens.
Carissa and Michael both end up in a dungeon without any idea who put them there or why. The princess of the dragons and the protector. What happens between them is a suite of strange things, strong attraction and a lot of magic!!
I loved how they could turn into smaller dragon form, being much more discreet and so cute! The non stop man hunt definitely didn't help

Quite possibly the fastest I've munched through a book. As an author of a Dragon book, it's interesting to see different ideas used around the whole fire breathing monster motif.

This book was very quick to dive into the action and there was no let up until the last pages where the story seemed to stop an act early.

The constant effects of the animal nature of the creatures was explored well for both of the main characters and the passage dealing with the way one character saw the other, how he w

Together they manage to escape and form a bond, but their problems just continue once freed and they realize they need to trust each other completely if they are going to get out of their situation unscathed.

Great story! The characters are richly detailed and the plot is well defined. It starts off with a bang and keeps you hanging on the edge until you reach the end. The world portrayed in this book is detailed, complex, and fantastic. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. ...more

I have read a lot of stories with dragons in them but never have I read one which had my eyes glued to the pages. I love what the author has done creating a world where they intermingle with humans and the main character was very entertaining. Kudos! This was a very good read.
