Drakon’s Prey is book two in the Blood of the Drakon series by N.J. Walters. Wow, what a fantastic second book this is! I mentioned in the review for the first book that I didn’t feel the chemistry as much as I wanted to between Darius and Sarah. Well, that was most definitely not a problem with this one! These two were hotter than hot and I loved watching them fall for one another.

Valeriya Azarov is the younger sister of Karina Azarov who is the leader of the Knights of the Dragon, an organiza

I just love me some dragons.

Another great additional to this wonderful series. I’m so happy I found this series. I’ve read two other books by this author and she knows how to write paranormal romance. With Ms. Walters you get sucked into the story even if you don’t want to but believe me you will. There is a great blend of paranormal with suspense and the world that has been built and the Drakons.

Another great addition to the series. NJ Walters knows how to hit it out of the park.

Tarrant was sexy as hell. I liked him. He too like his brother in the first book was easy to like and you didn't have to hate him then learn to like him. He was true to life that he would be cautious with Valeriya then decide about her. When he did decide he was wonderful to her and treated her like a princess.

I like Valeriya. She had a terrible childhood and for her own sister to want her dead, that just stink

4.5 - "I'm keeping you." Stars!

The second book in N. J. Walters Blood of the Drakon series brings us Tech-Wizard; Tarrant Cooper’s story. He featured pretty heavily in the first book so it was good to see deeper into this Drakons psyche.

I really enjoyed this story, considering about 90% of it plays out in an underground bunker, it surprised me as to how well the author pulled me in.

He was half human, half dragon, too. But he was all drakon…

I LOVE dragons and can’t get enough. This was a fantastic addition to the series.

Drakon’s Prey has plenty of danger, suspense, and smoking hot romance plus sexy dragon brothers. I loved Tarrant! He was just so amazing and sweet. Valeriya I adored her. She had a horrible childhood, but she found away to distance herself from the family business. I loved that she is an artist and an author. Such a sweet heart, but still strong and loyal. The chemistry between Valeriya and Tarrant was hot and

I loved this one, it wasn’t as fast paced as book one and I connected to both Tarrant and Valeriya a lot quicker than I did with Darius and Sarah. There was something so instinctive about their bond that really stood out for me. Maybe it was because they both fought how easy it was to care for a perfect stranger? Or the fact that they were so different for one another but still understood each others needs so perfectly? I think it really he

With action, intrigue, and danger around every corner, there was a lot to like about Drakon’s Prey. Sadly, this series still isn’t grabbing me like I really, really hoped it would. To get the full picture, I’d read the first book before diving into this one since there is an ongoing story arc connecting each book in the series.

Valeriya (who I called V in my head because that name just sounds like something contagious to me), was super sweet and meant well but OMG was she naïve. To make things wo

I so enjoyed the second book, Drakon’s Prey in NJ Walters’ Blood of the Drakon series. In Drakon’s Prey, we meet Valeriya Azarov. Valeriya is the head of the Knights of the Dragons sister. Valeriya is opposed to the mission of the secret society and takes it upon herself to try to save at least one of the Drakon’s. This effort, of course, makes her a traitor and a target for the Knights.

This is the second book in the series and I grabbed it just as soon as I finished Book 1. This is about Tarrant, the Air Drakon and brother to Darius from the first book. Tarrant is the techno geek and communications expert. You will want to have read book 1 first just to have more of the story understood.

Valeriya should technically be one of the bad guys. Her sister is the head of the Knights of the Dragon. But she has stayed out of their way her whole life--until she can't anymore. Sh

Drakon’s Prey picks up the story of the Blood of the Drakon series with Tarrant’s story. The sparks fly between Tarrant and Valeriya almost immediately, even if she’s unaware that he’s been watching her on camera since she first neared his woods. The man is suspicious, especially considering who her sister is – but the drakon, well that’dragon’s heart is already captured and he knows this woman belong with them.

Drakons are the offspring of a human mother and a dragon-shifter father. They are sought by the Knights of the Dragon who wish to enslave them and use their blood to prolong their lives as well as heal. Karina Azarov is the leader of the Knights. She is strong, determined and focussed on capturing herself a drakon but her sister, Valeriya has never wanted anything to do with the Knights.

More Dragonssss!!! This one picks from where we left in the last book with our protagonist going to find a Drakon (dragon shifter) to warn him about her sisters plan. This is kind of a hate to love story (mostly just on the heroes end). Let’s down to business…

Valeriya Azarov is an children’s books illustrator and has nothing to do with being a knight or her sister and her family’s business in capturing and torturing Darkons. Instead Valeriya even as a child imagined dragons as

Second books in paranormal series can be difficult. The first book often has all of this interesting world-building and the introduction of the "big bad" to make it exciting. That was certainly the case with this series. I loved the first book, and I feel that it is absolutely necessary to enjoying this one at all. I'll explain:

This one was another kind. The timeframe of it was short but many characters were involved so it got way more possibilities than I could ever expect.
The interaction, the romance was very good, and all thanks to Darius, not his story anymore but not forgotten. And also, this one book gave a bit more information about the drakon.

I enjoyed DRAKON'S PREY just as much as I enjoyed DRAKON'S PROMISE. If you didn't read book one, make sure to read it before jumping in, you won't want to miss the backstory.

The Knights are after a Drakon and the sister of their leader has set out to warn him. DRAKON'S PREY starts off right were book one left off. Sarah and Darius are safe with another brother and Tarrant is in his home when a woman starts sniffing around the cabin and eventually ends up moving in.

It's long overdue, but I'm finally diving back into N.J. Walter's drakon series. I've been so fascinated with this world that N.J. has created. There's a lot history evolving around the war that has been happening between the drakons and the Knights.

Just like book 1, I was completely engaged the whole time and constantly learning new things about both the drakons at the Knights. And one by one, the drakon brothers are finally finding the loves of their lives. There's definitely a reason for it a

THUD *hits the floor in a faint* Drakon's Prey continues on with all the beauty and wonder that Book 1 brought to the table.

Drakon’s Pray is Book 2 of the Blood of the Drakon Series by N.J. Walters and is absolutely breathtaking with the author’s wonderful crafting of her story.

I'm really upset because the second book of this series failed to win me over. I feel like the book is 90% sex scenes and the plot never really took off, so I got bored really quick. I couldn't really appreciate the sex scenes either and ended up skipping almost all of them just to get to the plot-- it got tedious very quickly. Disappointing. ...more

I've been reading N.J. Walters since I stumbled upon her Legacy Series a few years ago. When she started writing about Dragons I knew it was something I was really going to enjoy and I was so right! This is book 2 in her Dracon series and I'm absolutely hooked. Her characters suck you in and keep you turning pages. She builds the suspense and gets you invested in the story. My minds eye can see a Dracon and the image of the dragon himself is stunning! Plus I love the fact that the lady in this s ...more

Another amazing journey into a world where dragons exist, monsters walk among us, and love conquers all…

Valeriya Azarov's family always found her to be a big disappointment as she was not willing to involve herself to their world. She would rather write and illustrate children' books than deal with the Knights of the Dragons. This secret society, headed by her sister, is working toward enslaving dragons. She has no idea that a moment of rebellion would make her a DRAKON'S PREY.

Things change when she is threatened by her sister who says she will no longer tolerate Valeriya's childishness and bring
