Carol [Goodreads Addict]
Hunt of the Dragon is book four, the final book, in the Vale of Stars series by Juliette Cross. It’s been quite a while since the third book came out in this series. I was worried I would have trouble jumping back into this world. That was not the case at all. It felt like it was just yesterday as I began this book and was drawn back to this world of Morgons, half dragon, half human hybrids. I have to mention here that Juliette often starts her books with amazing prologues that set the stage for ...more
Oh my gosh!!! We finally have Bowen’s story!!!

I’m absolutely in love with this world and it’s diverse cast of characters. I especially love the heroes. These guys will do anything to protect their mates (even before they become mated) and their jealousy and possessiveness is delicious and exactly the type of thing I crave. Bowen was all of that and so much more as he never dominated over Krissa and was so sweet and gentle with her. The fact that their relationship developed organically was wonde

I FLIPPING LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! The finale of the Vale of Stars series is finally finished and it did NOT disappoint!!! While it’s been over 2 years since book 3 was released, I was able to start reading Hunt of the Dragon without being lost or trying to remember what happened previously. While it is a standalone romance, I highly recommend starting at the beginning to have the entire backstory.

Hunt of the Dragon features Bowen Huntergild and Krissa Nadeem. Bowen, a Morgon tracker, is looking fo

Hunt of the Dragon is the spectacular conclusion to one of my all time favorite series. I have been anxiously awaiting Bowen & Krissa’s story and JC did not disappoint! It has all the humor, action, suspense, & steam with a capital S that we’ve come to expect from her. I highly recommend starting at the beginning if you haven’t read the first 3 in this series as Vale of Stars is definitely best devoured in order. There’s also an amazing spin-off series titled Nightwing. While I’m SO sad that it’ ...more

I had almost forgotten how brilliant these Morgon books actually are.
The final in this series did not disappoint as it has the magnificent Bowen Huntergild who has featured in previous books but this one is all about him & Krissa who is his fated mate.
Krissa photograph’s a young dragon boy & his mother on an illicit trip into forbidden lands. This comes to the attention of the Morgons as it was thought that dragons were all killed. Krissa is sent with Bowen to show where this was taken so that t

4.5 stars-HUNT OF THE DRAGON is the fourth and final instalment in Juliette Cross’ adult VALE OF STARS paranormal/fantasy romance series focusing on a dragon hybrid species known as the Morgons. This is twenty-something photojournalist and human Krissa Nadeem, and forty-something Morgon assassin Bowen Huntergild’s story line. HUNT OF THE DRAGON can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary but I recommend ...more

Hunt of the Dragon is an epic conclusion to the Vale of the Stars series. I was engaged from the very beginning and the author’s writing kept me invested in Krissa and Bowen’s story. The book is full of action, adventure, and suspense. Krissa and Bowen’s story is divine. Their romance blossoms so sweetly with many “aw” moments. Of course, it happens while they are hunting for an enemy of the Morgon Guard. As they track the enemy, Krissa and Bowen find themselves growing closer to one another. We ...more
***5 Stars***

While I’m sad that this is the last book of the series, I gotta say, this baby went out big. It pushed all the right buttons for me in every way possible and gave me everything I wanted and more.

I adored Krissa and Bowen. Krissa is adventurous, but not impetuous. She is all kinds of sweet and sassy, but has a good head on her shoulders. Bowen is even keel, for the most part, and leans towards doing the right thing, even when his emotions are riding him hard. Their journey to the

Hunt of the Dragon by Juliette Cross is the 4th and final book in her fabulous Vale of Stars series. I am a huge fan of Cross, having read most if not all her books. She is an amazing author, who never fails to give us terrific exciting stories (paranormal world), with great couples, fantastic secondary characters, action filed and steamy. Hunt of the Dragon was a great addition to this series, and as always, I loved our wonderful couple.

Krissa Nadeem, our heroine, is a journalist who also excel

Wow, I loved this book. It was easy to pick up who was who even if it’s been ages since book 3 came out so I didn’t need to read it again but I’m going to go back and do so anyway like I have already done over the years since I first read Soulfire. I love this world that Juliette has created with all the different Morgan clans with different dragon gifts. I loved the connection between Kissa and Bowen. I loved how protective he was even from the first moment

A perfect finish to a phenomenal series! My full review will be over at the LitBuzz website closer to release day.

Bowen and Krissa’s romance is perfect for any type of reader. Krissa is smart, fierce, fearless, and kind to everyone she meets. Bowen is her perfect counterpoint. He’s renowned for his tracking skills, his ability to pick up the slightest change in the wind or someone’s countenance makes him a fierce Morgon, and also the kind of male that is so addicting to read because it makes hi

* I was a BETA reading for this book, but my review is solely based on my personal opinion.

After waiting for what felt like eternity, we FINALLY have the final book to this amazing series, Vale of Stars. I've never had to wait this long for a final book, but this was SOOOOOOO worth it. And to be completely honest, now I'm a little sad that it IS over....

Krissa is a photojournalist. After capturing an image of the most sought after enemy, she's become the only person to lead the Morgan Guard to

This was a great story! I haven’t read any of the books in this series that I can recall, I could have. This one is a great conclusion because they took out the bad guy and brought peace to everyone. I like Juliette’s books she tells a rousing good story that keeps you engaged and interested. She wraps everything up in a nice little bow, but I wonder if we will see any of the younger characters in future books? I can’t wait to find out!

2.5 stars.

I skipped quite a bit of this as I don’t enjoy erotica. However, I really wanted to see how the whole series ended and I have to say that I found the resolution to be very satisfying.

What didn’t work for me was the instalove but the story arc of the series itself was well paced and interesting.

👏👐Once again Juliette cross has written another fabulous book in her Vale of Stars series! This is the final book in the series and ending it with the dragon shifter Bowen and his mated one Krissa made my day!

I KNEW Bowen Huntergild would be my absolute favorite of the Morgons, when I got to read his book.

But here's the thing... Okaaaay, that is NOT where the hymen is located, nor how it works. It is not that far into the vaginal canal. It is, at most, LESS THAN AN INCH inside it. And it tends to not be a solid sheet, that needs to be ripped through. It's also elastic-y, SO.

I know this is a fantasy world, but COME ON, she's human.

ALSO the hymen is not an indicator of virginity 🙄 Virginity is just a
