I’m honestly not sure what to think of this. It was fast paced and entertaining. There were times that politics got a little confusing but overall it wasn’t bad.
It was short but fun read.

Dragon's Pursuit: A Red Slaves Novella (The Hotel Paranormal Series) by Tonya Cannariato was a fast pace, action packed read that had me flipping pages.

I voluntarily requested this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book was super difficult to follow for me. I understand the gist of the story however the transitions seemed really off to me. I felt as though I blinked and a new scene started and I am wondering how in the hell did I get here. The book has the makings of being a very good book however the transitions, the scenes, the writing just seemed completely off. I don't know if it is because of me or if the writer just did not hire

Dragon’s Pursuit: A Hotel Paranormal Novella is part of the Red Slaves series from Tonya Cannariato. It is a paranormal read with some romance and fantasy to keep you invested that much more. It has so much packed between the pages that there is never a dull moment.

This one takes place in Russia as the others in the series have but with some new storylines to devour. I would not recommend reading this novella until you have read the first few in the series and in order. Things are explained tha

Dragon’s Pursuit by Tonya Cannariato is the 4th book in the Red Slaves series. This book is a 5-star action packed novel.

I loved this book along with the characters and the story line. My favorite part of the book is reading about Russia and learning about the different places the characters visit. The supernatural aspects of the book are very detailed and explained and the book really pulls you into the story as if you are there in the background watching everything unfold.

I like the story but it was so wordy(I feel like that’s not a word lol). I liked that the characters all had growth. The details about Russia were so great I thought I was really there. The authors knowledge truly shined in this book. This was my favorite amongst all of the Red Slave books. There are spy’s and corrupted political figures. Max is so brilliant. How he juggles all he does I have no clue. I didn’t like Yuliya all that much. She did have a

“How could he protect his dragon clan if he were mated to a KGB agent?”
That’s the dilemma Maxim faces when he meets the beautiful Yuliya in Tonya Cannariato’s Dragon’s Pursuit, her exciting contribution to The Hotel Paranormal series (where, btw, I would like to take up permanent residence.). The Hotel can be found in Russia this time as these two are propelled together by both the Elder gods and the magical hotel itself.

Dragon’s Pursuit is a novella within the Red Slaves series and it didn’t disappoint! After reading the other instalments of the Red Slaves series I was really excited to read this. I really liked Max’s character, but I also really loved seeing a powerful, successful female character within the story - Yuliya - and loved how her character develops so much throughout the novel. I thought that the use of free indirect discourse was amazing as it really aided my understanding of the characters, thei ...more

Overall rating: 4.4 (advance copy)

To be honest, I don’t know much about political science or the history of Russian government, so my eyes kind of glazed over at the set up of this storyline. However, that does not mean I don’t recognize the brilliance of this author to weave such an interesting and unique tale. I truly did not know where this story would take me much less the outcome. All I knew was, I had to reach the conclusion. There was no not finding out. That to me equals a great read! Th

The details that Ms. Cannariato puts to create her world and characters. The pace to this story was a quick action pack story with the paranormal mixed in.

Dragon’s Persuit by Tonya Cannariato is the next installment in the Red Slaves Series, but with an interesting new twist and comes as a novella.

I love that we get to continue this series, but with a newer younger generation – and that we get to see where the author is taking it. I have to say that getting more of a paranormal touch piqued my interest.

Once again, Tonya impresses her readers with her ability to write a tale and allow it to flow with its characters seamlessly. This was definitely
