Drakon Unchained is book 5 in the Blood of the Drakon series by N.J. Walters. I’ve loved this series from the beginning and have been so excited about this new one. It most definitely did not disappoint.

When Victoria Marshall was a child living a lonely life in an orphanage, she made an unlikely friend while playing alone in the woods, a real life dragon. They met every afternoon until he stopped showing up. She just knew something had happened to him. Now, twenty years later, she is still looki

Drakon Unchained is book five in the Blood of the Drakon series by N.J. Walters.

I’ve loved this series from the begging and have been excited for more. I was not disappointed.

It’s non-stop action, suspense, twists, and romance from begging to end.

Victoria Marshall made an unlike friend when she was a child. I liked Victoria. She’s got a unique ability and well it didn’t make it easy for her as a child and now as an adult she is still alone, but has a goal. She is protective of her friend and v

I started this series as ARCs but now I'm hooked on Drakons and jumped on the chance to read the latest installment. Although it can be read as a standalone, I think it would be more enjoyable if you read (at least) the one book before this one. Just to get familiar with the story and the recurring characters.

I loved finding out about more Drakons and watching the brothers grew stronger with each new ally they recruit in their fight against the Knights of the Dragon. Sergie, his mate Katherine

4 - "You need to come with a warning label." Stars!

The fifth book in N. J. Walters Blood of the Drakon series, gives us Herman Temple’s assistant; Victoria Marshall’s story. And as is generally with the case with the characters in this series, there is definitely more than meets the eye when it comes to the Ice Queen.

She’d gone from personal assistant to a businessman who just happened to be a ranking member of a secret society, to being on the run… She had no home that was safe, no money she c

On a mission to find her childhood dragon friend Victoria takes a job with the Knights of the Dragon to try to find him. Also employed there Drakon Luther is undercover in hopes to find his parents.

What a page-turner. I LOVED the sizzling sexual tension between Victoria and Luther. Walters weaves another compelling tale of mystery, danger, and sensual love. Fabulous new addition to the Drakon series! Well-done, Ms. Walters.

I am a huge fan of dragon shifters and this fantastic Blood of the Drakon series is one of my favorites!

In Drakon Unchained, we get an inside view of the inner-workings of the Knights of the Dragon through Victoria and Luther's roles and neither are what they are perceived. And they’re something more to each other than either of them realizes.

I loved the developing romance between Victoria and Luther. Loved that they just couldn't stay away from the other--that there was this draw that had to b

This is book 5. I was so happy to see the series move beyond just the four brothers. That said, it took me a hot minute to sort this one out. Maybe because it has been a few months since the last book? I'm not sure, but by about the 5th chapter, I was in to it. You definitely need to read the series in order. This book brings characters back that we have seen before.

Victoria is one of the gifted women. She has premonitions and/or dreams that give her insight into people. She has also met a Drak

Drakon Unchained continues the saga of the Drakon, a half dragon half human creature that is being hunted by a secret society.

All the heroines in this series have some sort of supernatural talent. Victoria can 'dream walk' and see people's past and present. She met a Drakon when she was a child and she knows now that he is being kept against his will. She takes a job as the assistant to the head of the secret society seeking these Drakons. In her position she meets the head of security, Luther.

I loved the first book in this series (Drakon's Promise) and I was delighted to find that Drakon Unchained was nearly as good. The two main characters were really well written and their story arc was well thought out and well written. I can't wait for the next book in this series. I am reviewing this book based on an ARC received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

Victoria and Luther are both living a lie, on a mission to save a dragon and if they don’t share their secrets with each other they won’t survive.

If anyone out there is listening, I would like to put in a request for my own drakon. Please and thank you.

These drakon males know how to treat a lady, let's just start there! Strong, honest, protective, and kind, they are the alpha males we all say we want but have a hard time finding. In this series, N.J. Walters has created a world of magic and crime, and the way it blends in with modern day is seamless.

3 1/2 *'s While book 5 of the Blood of the Drakon series, Drakon Unchained as a stand-a-lone or entry point to the series. While the first 4 books centered around drakon brothers, this book introduces new drakon to the mix and provides any needed background to the series/world without bogging down too much info. Fans of the original set need not fear though as some of the prior characters do make appearances in supporting roles in this book too.

"Drakon Unchained" is the fifth book in the Blood of the Drakon series and follows Victoria and Luther, who are both hiding. Victoria has a "gift" where she travels during her dreams to see things in the past, present, or future. As an orphan, this gift was more of a curse, as it creeped her caregivers out and led to some bad/lonely scenarios for her. The only person she felt who cared for her was a drakon who came to her in the woods, Sergio. Sergio used to talk with her and make her feel human ...more

Victoria has long had to hide her true self from others. No-one believed her when she said she had a dragon for a friend. They definitely didn't believe her when she said that something bad had happened to him.

She has dedicated her life to searching for her friend and she even took a job working for a slimeball, knowing that he was somehow involved. Knights of the Dragon sound like they'd be a dragons best friend but she knows that whatever they are doing it's not dragon friendly!

This book starts with characters outside the core family of drakons. After reading the previous books that matched up all of the brother drakons with their mates, I was kind of expecting this book to be more of the same.

Drakon Unchained is book five of the half-dragon, half-human Drakon Series by N.J. Walters. It is a spectacular addition to a wonderful series. I liked the characters with their secrets, the relationship building along with the world building. The overarching plot really takes a major focus in this book, but the budding romance between Victoria and Luther is never slighted.

The Knights of the Dragon are truly the bad guys, so it was quite a nice twist to see their organization infiltrated. Howeve

It is one of those unexpected books and plots that makes you want to read a series.

Luther and Victoria's book is one heck of a good follow up after Nic's story. I mean, i was having a "wow! really?!" moment, as I progress reading. And at the end, you are left, wondering will there be another one?

Victoria Marshall has spent her entire life alone. Her one bright spot in memory was meeting her drakon friend in the forest outside of her orphanage. When one day her friend didn't show up she knew something terrible had happened to him. With her gift years later she was able to find the organization that took him. Working for the enemy isn't safe for her, but Victoria doesn't have anyone who cares about her enough to miss her, until Luther.

Luther is a Drakon in search for his parents and Victoria is a human with a special gift both working for a member of an evil secret group called Nights of the Dragon.

Book 5 in this Drakon series which can be read as a stand alone but you’ll get more from it if you read from book 1. I had thought that the 4 brothers would be the end of the series but now that we’ve moved to new Drakons it has added new life to the books. I really enjoyed it & loved that you got an update on the previous characters too

Luther likes to make sure his girl is taken care of, “I crawl back in that bed, and you won’t get any rest.” His voice softened. “Close your eyes, baby.” Luther likes to look after the environment, “I’m going to shower with you. It’s quicker and will conserve water.” I liked this book, I loved Luther and Victoria was a feisty little thing.
