A hundred years ago, the high sorcerer of Velensperia launched a swift and deadly attack against the draegans—a race of dragon shapeshifters who’d always lived in harmony with the humans. The draegans were all but destroyed, with the few who remained, scattered and in hiding. But after a century of cruel repression, a group of them have united and begun to fight back. Thei ...more

Oh Yeah... I could be that big boob bitch lady riding the dragon!!!

No wait a second... this phrase could have another meaning!


huuuuummmm... ok, so I think both meanings are valid in this case, because KEIRAN is a hell of a dragon!

Quick comment about the story (without spoilers of the #1 or this #2 of the serie)

Ok, the first book let us know how can enemies be together in hot sex scenes to fight against a common enemy, the son of a bitch villa

Well... I sure as hell hadn't expected that ending. It was a bit of a shock, as I had expected something else. It was a pleasant surprised, I think, though an horrible twist for the story. Overall, the book had its moments, though it was boring as well. And fuck, I was going crazy with all the I love you's. You love each other, I get it, but I don't need to hear it all the time. Just saying. Though the ending makes you intrigued to continue, the series is still not the best out there and makes y ...more

I think.I love this book even more than the first

first review
speak about cliffhangers!!! and now I have to wait for the next book ...

at least as good as the first. LOve the world, the dragons and especially Gaige and Keiran. Gaiges characer is really developing and I love to watch
The sequel of True of Heart (or Book #2 of The Draegan Lords series) is even better than the first book.

First because it is the length is longer, which gives me satisfaction of being immersed into the urban fantasy world of draegans and their fight against the evil sorcerer, Byram.

Second because there are a lot of development from both Keiran and Gaige as characters, including more stories regarding Keiran's heritage as the last Draegan Lord and his followers. It's an amazing world to follow,
Book two in the Draegan Lords series starts off right where book one ended. Gaige had been captured and treated brutally by Byram, the High Sorcerer of Velensperia, until finally Keiran was able to rescue him. During their escape Keiran is also injured. Now the men must recuperate, get back to their people and plan and be ready for the certain fight ahead. Byram now knows Keiran's true heritage and he'll stop at nothing to kill him and all of the other Draegans.

Vivian ♪(┌・。・)┌

Better than the first with more action, hot sex (well, more of it anyway). It was a pretty engaging book overall. Again like the first book, although there was nothing wrong with it, it just doesn't quite cut the 5-star mark. I just feel that even though there is nothing I can point out that could clarify my taking off a star, it's just that I don't feel that it really is that good of a book to be able to make it that far.

I don't know. And even now I feel a bit iffy taking off a star even as
Too much drama for my personal taste. Do men even talk that much, especially about their emotional state? However, I love the plot and dragons in particular. Starting the next book :)

Honestly I thought Book 1 was better. Both the MCs in this book were a bit too emotional for me. I'm all for alpha guys having feelings but it seemed like they were constantly on a super high or a super low. Extreme guilt or constant I love yous. Also not a lot happened in this book until the end and while I like some good sex scenes there just felt like too many in this book at odd times. Interesting cliffhanger though and since I did really love the first book I'll give book 3 a shot to see if ...more
I loved this. It actually surprised me in places. Just when I thought the guys would be uncommunicative and ruin everything by not talking about their insecurities....they talked! And reassured. And it was great. I like the progression of the plot as well. I liked the new characters introduced. The twist towards the end and the new big bad was interesting. THE ENDING WAS NOT OKAY.

I love a good dragon story and this one was almost as good as the first book. I think this one needed a bit more fleshing out on some of the character points but over all a wonderful book. I look forward to reading book 3

After this cliffhanger ending... I NOW find out that well there is a book 3, book 4 never happened. It has been years!!

So frustrated that I started an unfinished series. I am upset that I wasted my money on a book (which was very pricey for a kindle book) only to find out it will never end.

It's my own fault. I should have LOOKED before I began this series. But I didn't. And know I'll never know how it ends and it is a HUGE cliffhanger at the end of this book. Guess I'll have to come up with my o

How could it just end like that?! Ugh, cliffhangers! Lol.

I really loved this book. It was definitely better than the first one, True of Heart. I was hooked from the very beginning and even with all the months that passed between reading ToH and LoK I was still able to follow the story and remember the basics of what happened in ToH.

I liked Gaige more in this one, though. He seems like a more trustworthy type of character now whereas before I was still kinda cautious of if he was actually good a

Stunning in the intensity of the feelings portrayed between the MCs, the author cleverly uses the usual mis-communications between them but resolves them quickly and believably.

I keep thinking this is similar but an adult, m/m version of "Lord of the Rings".

My only complaint? The cliff-hanger finish. But, I'm already reading the last in the series, Fires Of Ballian, absolutely obssesed with what happens next.
Dropping to 3 stars due to the unfinished nature of this series, a lack of closure on the story has impacted my opinion for all 3 books, I will never re-read them since I know they're unfinished. A warning to all who would start this series, we've been waiting for book 4 for 3 years. I'm giving up hope and removing book 4 from my want to read pile. Very, VERY frustrating.
It's been a while since I read the first book in this series, but I was able to jump right back into the story with no problem. This is an excellent combination of m/m romance and fantasy. Loved it.

4.5 heart review for Love Bytes Reviews!

A copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review. Please visit to see this and many more reviews, interviews, and giveaways.

This is the second book in the epic fantasy series The Draegan Lords. In book one, True of Heart, we met Gaige and Keiran. At the beginning of the story Gaige has been sent by Byram, the high sorcerer of Velensperia, on a mission to find the leader of the remaining draegans. He finds the camp
I like this book even more than the last one because Keiran started to feel more realistic to me. He was just a bit too close to perfect in the first book, so he was on the verge of being a Gary Stu. Anyway, he made mistakes in this book, which I enjoyed.

I also was relieved to see that Gaige and Keiran have maintained their lack of fixed sexual roles; I was worried the author only had them switch for the logistics of the bonding.

I just really enjoy that neither character sees the other as weake

Gaige & Kieran are so mushy and adorably in love. I do not care what people think, or how much of a cliché/trope it is, I absolutely love the concept of “truemate”.

Since his identity have been reveal, Gaige is trying to gain the people trust, while Kieran have to accept his heritage and become the draegans leader. And that about it, there is not a lot of action in this book, it all about characters progression and feeling (and yes there is a lot of them, and a lot of I love you). Come on thi

Lords focuses on Keiran and Gaige's relationship and learning more about what the true mating means for Gaige and Keiran. And ends on a cliffy so on to #3.

Former Captain of the High Guard Gaige Rizik’s world has been turned upside down. One day he’s one of the most feared, most respected men under High Sorcerer Byram’s command, the next day he is mated to the leader of the draegan rebels, the high sorcerer’s sworn enemies. After his rescue and escape from Byram’s dungeon and near death by poisoning, Gaige is faced with the fact that he is of mixed blood – both human and draegan – that he’s now mated to

Harrumph. Why did I not know that this series is unfinished?! I try to avoid starting unfinished series as much as possible, but somehow I totally missed that about this one. So, yes. This book ends on a cliffhanger, but when I went to buy #3 so I could see what happens, I found out that it's got a cliffhanger ending also... and there's no book #4! So now I have no incentive to spend more money just to still not know what happens in the end.

Alright, rant over.

Ratings are for book 1 and 2 together.
I have had this series in my TBR bookshelf forever. I refuse to read a series in which all parts have not been published. The wait would kill me. Having said that, I was in quite a dry spell, with no inspiring books to read, so I just divined into this series without checking to see if book 4 was published. What a mistake, after book 2 I realized that only book 3 is out with the 4th one having no expected date of publication. Book 1 and 2 have felt like one
When I first read book #1 True of Heart I really enjoyed it - but when I read this one I absolutely loved it (and it made me have to love the first one even more).

I do love a good love story - one that has heart - and this one really does. The world of these guys is built and created so well in this book. You know their love is strong and very deep - and the sexy, freakin' hot love scenes are smoking too. All of this creates an amazing story that is fun to read and very entertaining. I am easily

Wow. As stated on the first book, I'm a fan of M.L. Rhodes and I enjoy this type of story a lot. It was also longer than the first book, so we got a lot of action which I enjoyed. I highly recommend this book for all who enjoy shifters, paranormals, suspense and m/m pairings of soul mates.

Also, holy cliffhanger, Batman! For those who like to be forewarned, this book does end on a cliffhanger. However, good news! The third book is available, so you can find out how it ends right away. From the re

More setting description and I love to imagine their world. And then when I read about the elf, I just like, "what's this, another tolkien loosely-based?" But when the elf (I really forget her name) killed the spy, I decided that I was wrong. At least the elf didn't sing whe she killed him. (and no, before you protest, I don't dislike LoTR, quite the opposite, actually)

I also love Keiran and Gaige interaction. Their charecter were more developed in this book, as much their sex. LOL.
