I really enjoyed this. Even though it seemed like almost a knock off of my favorite blue alien series.

I really liked Landon and Calista. Enjoyed the story. It totally sucked me in!

So my friend CC called this a knock off of all our fav blue alien series and I just thought that, "Yeah okay, it might be a knock off but between sexy blue aliens and hot as hell dragon men, I would always go for the dragon."

How could I resist?

So did it seem similar? YES! Ridiculously similar.

Based on what I just read, if I ever end up in a situation where I have to choose between blue horned aliens and dragon men with wings, to spend the rest of my life with . . . I'm going with the sexy blue

I was in the mood for a silly entertaining sci-fi romance, also Dragon's Baby reminded me of the Ice Planet Barbarians, but this one was short of the mark.

The beginning was fun and engaging, I especially liked the scene where the cheeky old man forgot his ID and was outrageous and funny. Things quickly deteriorated as soon as they got boarded by space pirates, crash land on a desert alien planet and no one was injured even though they were all without safety gear and passed out in the

I was in the mood for a sci fi romance and had this recommended to me. A story written by two completely new to me authors and several good reviews for what I thought might just be run of the mill alien captures human. Hmm well yes and no actually. Calista is part of a crew on a voyage to find a new home ( she's third generation) and I will be honest here and say it doesn't really feel very futuristic to this reader at all . They are attacked and the ship breaks up leaving Calista and fellow sur ...more

I liked this story....the heroine was weak for an Alpha Dragon to pick... she could have used more backbone and to stand up for herself w/her fellow humans. I liked the Dragon Alien...he was strong, smart, kind, but protective...

Много ми хареса. Честно казано, вероятно защото супер много харесвам поредицата за Варварите от ледената планета на Руби Диксън, и фактът, че тази поредица много наподобява поредицата на Руби даде голям плюс към цялостното ми впечатление от книгата.

Калиста е ботаник. Целият си живот, тя е прекарала на космически кораб, пътуващ към далечна дестинация, където да се преселят хората. Изчислено е, че едва петата генерация хора, пътуващи на кораба ще достигнат до новата планета, която иска

I’ve found a new crack obsession. My definition of crack is a crazy balls-out premise, an alien hero (different color and/or unusual appendages are a MUST), a tried and true romance formula and a fascinating ‘verse that captures my interest. Boy, has the Dragons of Tajss delivered. Does it have its flaws? Yep. Do I give a flying zemjla? Nope, not even a little bit.

A mishmash of different fantasy/sci-fi components that we’ve seen in shows from Dr. Who to Beetlejuice, this is a series

Total rip-off ice planet barbarians.
Feb 03, 2017 rated it did not like it

1st) Too many modern day movie references for me to honestly believe this story takes place in the distance future, a future where the heroine is a third generation passenger on a ship.

2nd) The writing style was confusing at times. Example; a pirate blocks the path of the heroine and her friends. Suddenly he has a hole in his head... Never explained how it got there. It's just there and the pirate is (ex machina style) dead. There were a lot of instances like this where things weren't explain

Not bad but really not good

The plot is a good one even if it reminds me of another series just hot and not icy. However that’s where the good ends since this story goes down hill quickly.The heroine is a weeping silly spineless mess so you really never feel any real connection to her. Guy saves her and has treated her well he shows some interest a lady nut job runs off screaming in a unfamiliar alien world only to be captured and require saving from the very alien that saved her before.

WOW! This is a Spectacular read. What a phenomenal story that's written so well with lots of humor. The dialogue is clever, awesome and incredible. The characters are creative, amazing, unique and captivating. I absolutely adore the way Miranda and Juno always do a phenomenal job with the alien worlds, scene descriptions and characters. This is a truly FANTASTIC story! This story is about Ladon and Calista. Ladon
Not bad in itself, but incredibly similar to the Ice Planet Barbarians series. It's like a transfer, with just a change of coloring and temperature, minimal variations (view spoiler) and a bit of Dune mythology (only the basics, n ...more

El libro en si ha sido raro. En cierta forma, me ha recordado a la pelicula Passengers, la de Jennifer Lawrence. Ha estado bien, y me intriga seguir leyendo la “saga”, quiero leer la historia de la mejor amiga de Calista, Julie.

I liked the story and the humor between the characters. The romance was good. A few places dragged with too much description, but overall I'd continue with the series to see what happens next.

The Heroine's Brain Is Lost In Space

"She has no sense! No protection, no weapons, not strong enough to lift a baoba limb on her own and she runs off blindly. Stupid and dangerous." These words by Ladon describe Calista perfectly.
She starts out the book seeming pretty intelligent. She's a biochemist who wears glasses. But once she crashes on the planet her glasses disappear (with no mention of them or indication she has any decrease in vision) and her intelligence disappears as well. The rest of

The setting was fantastic, the descriptions were well done, and I loved the hero. This was a super fun story, and I would have given it four or more stars if it had just been edited better. I don't usually harp on the editing too much, but this one had tons of run-on sentences, dropped letters and punctuation, and even a few content mistakes that kept knocking me out of the flow of the story. The characters and plot were so good that I shouldn't have had to stop and figure out that the authors m ...more

It's like a cross between Last Hour of Gahn and Ice Planet Barbarians. Not very original but still, if you like those kinds of stories and try not to compare every little thing you should like this as well. I'm going to download the next book in the series, I want to find out how Jolie takes to being kidnapped and hope she doesn't put up too much fuss. Oh, and I hope she doesn't have as many TSTL moments as calista did because, damn, that girl didn't listen for crap and made so many s

A fun read

As with every alien romance book that I've read this far, this one was fun, but it wasn't pitch perfect. It was captivating in part, but the small areas of lag, caused this one to lose stream.

I am part of Miranda Martin's newsletter and when I found out that I was able to review this book in exchange for an honest review I was all over it!

Let's jump right into this review. Calista, is someone who I don't know how to feel about. She has some great characteristics when it comes to being a heroine but then she has some of the worst as well. The lack of self-confidence and the constant doubt drove me batshit crazy. All I wanted was for her to understand that Ladon just wanted to be with

It was okay

It was an okay read I'm not sure how the rest of the stories will turn out I just finished reading the preview for the next book about Jolie who goes missing at the end of this book, but already the author has screwed up her own timeline...Jolie goes missing sometime after Calista left her to go tell Lodan that she is pregnant and in the preview Jolie wakes up and the last thing she remembers is the attack getting slung into some rocks and being saved by a different zmaj warrior, whi

This is such a different from most of the Alien Romance books that I have read. Most of the time the heroin is kidnapped, adupted and or then sold to someone else. The main character Claista is a botanist and uses her scientific training to view her circumstances and helps her to cope with what has happened to her. For someone that seems so meek at the beginning of the story she changes to a much more independent woman that has more meaning in her life that she had ever dreamed of. That is if sh ...more

Oh honey, no. The writing is awkward. There are grammatical errors and weird sentence structures that makes parts of it confusing to read. The plot is fine. It is a typical crash land on an alien planet with no women story. (People have compared it to IPB. While it is similar, it isn't as if IPB is unique. The Mars Needs Mom trope is pretty much always the same in books. Dixon wasn't the first to do it, and she won't be the last. Hell, her stories aren't unique in her own series. How many times ...more

Refreshing. A Carefully-Crafted Story

I almost didn't read this just because of the title. This is actually a lot more creative and insightful than I expected. This isn't an action-packed, edge of your seat book, nor is it a fluff book without a storyline. This story is very carefully plotted with a great care for detail and it's not rushed. It's pure survival.

I really appreciate the interactions of not only the characters, but that of the world around them. Landon and Calista are an odd pair in

Calista has spent her entire life on her ship and never thought she’s set foot on a planet, that is until her ship is attacked and crashes into what appears to be a barren planet. Ladon has been alone for a very long time. Only a few Zmaj warriors remain and they all expect to be the last of their line. The spaceship crashing brings unexpected changes for everyone.

I really loved the world Martin and Wells created but there was just something about the book that left me wanting. I found some scen

Adventure and romance

Calista and some of her shipmates crash land on a inhospitable planet after being attacked by pirates. Calista is attacked by wild animals, only to be rescued by a dragon-like male named Ladin who decides Calista is his greatest treasure and he is going to keep her. Calista is fine with that! In order to save Calista's life, Ladon feeds her epis which allows her to tolerate the harsh environment. She later learns that once a person has taken epis, they can never leave Tajss.
