I haven't read this author before but I have to say I really enjoyed it. I loved the characters and it was really engaging and I was intrigued from the get go. That doesnt always happen. I couldnt put it down. I loved Allura and Ruban oh boy I loved that chemistry. Off the charts. Saul and Darius and Elfrieda are notable characters among others. I like how we have multiple species in this world and how they all connect. This is just book one! I cant wait to read more.

If you’ve read my reviews before you know I had to pick this book up because I love dragons. I don’t always talk about the cover in my reviews but I love this one.

Dragons of Destiny is jam packed with mythology, which I always find fun if done well, and this is done very well. It was very well written, with some incredible world building that just had me lost in the world. The plot is fast paced and the action and adventure keeps you glued to the pages.

Ruben and Allura are intriguing characters
Dragons of Destiny is book one in C.R. Robertson’s The Gaian Otherworld series. This is a fantastic paranormal/fantasy romance novel. The balance of the world is shifting and things are changing. Danger is coming and destruction is at hand. Light and dark fae aren’t meant to mix, but love knows no restraint as is told in this story. Allura is a light fae, but she’s more than that. When she crosses paths with Ruben her life changes. It is initially just meant to be them working together to hunt d ...more

Taken into the story through Gaia’s creation of the world and the gifts and blessings of the goddesses Aphrodite, Athena, and Artemis, Gaia was still not satisfied. She allowed a drop of her blood to fall and magic was released into the world to create all sorts of magical creatures. The gods of Olympus then split the dark and light Fae to stabilize the world, then continued bringing forth other magical creatures, finally leaving it all to appointed protectors to maintain order.

Holy mythological creatures batman. Dragons of Destiny is jam packed with so many mythological creatures. Light fey and dark fey. A constant battle between the two, yet something bigger than them has awakened. It brings these two factions together, and uncovers more secrets than anyone ever expected.

I'm a big fan of anything mythological, and we get so many different myths woven together in this book! Allura is light fey and is teamed up with Ruben who is dark fey. Someone unleashed the kraken,

Mindblowing!!! 5 stars is an understatement!!!

Wow! Where do I start? Nothing in the blurb had prepared me for this highly addictive story! The author has managed to combine various aspects of mythology to create a unique new world, where ancient gods, faeries, demons and mythical beasts co-exist and battle for dominion of the present day earth. There are references to hollow earth, the underworld, the Seelie and Unseelie courts, and of course fated mates, all tightly interwoven in an action-pack

An interesting new series starter, "Dragons of Destiny" introduces us to a "new" universe, where we meet a mix of Roman and Greek gods.
The story starts with the creation of Earth by Gaia, and her contribution to bring magic into the world and the decision of the Gods, to balance
dark and light magic by not allowing them to mix.
When our main characters, Reuben and Allura, meet, they recognize the other as fated mate, despite one of them is using light and the other one dark magic.

I was gifted my copy of this book as an ARC and I'm really chuffed to be amongst the first to read this. This is a must read for all Dragon and Fantasy fans but hold on tight - it's a gripping story. Characters are amazing and in this first book from a brand new series, they have established themselves well and truly. Lots of humour and quick wit - my personal golden moment is a one liner which left be doubled up laughing. Descriptive reading which paints a new world for us to learn about and I' ...more

Dragons of Destiny

Wow! I’m left speechless! From the first page I was hooked needed more of a certain sexy smart mouth hero! I absolutely loved the characters they perfectly complimented each each fierce and stubborn as the other. It was snarky, it was hot and it was entertaining as hell!
I really enjoyed the fantasy world created as well full of monsters, dragons and Fae! It was original and thoroughly enjoyable to read.

Dragons of Destiny is the first in the Gaian Otherworld series and the first book I've read by CR Robertson and it will not be the last. The characters and the storyline was well written and entertaining to read. Ruben and Allura are both strong characters and that made for a well balanced couple. The attraction between the couple simmered along nice as they engaged in a chemistry that was steamy and hot, an entertaining tale, one that will satisfy the reader. I'm looking forward to the next rea ...more

The first book in this author's newest series and a definite must read for dragon shifter lovers and paranormal romance fans. A fantastic tale of magic and mystery, of the centurys of enmity between the light and the dark fae, of the centuries gone by with no fated dragon matings nor the birth of any dragon hatchlings. Allura is light Fae and Reuben is dark and they have a story to tell and a fated love to survive. Can't wait for Darius and Evanora's story to come out. That will be another reall ...more

This IS a great novel and CR ROBERTSON is an amazing storyteller. I am in awe at her ability to pull us into another world with her descriptive magic. I don't know how she fits so many characters, worlds and storylines into a book this size. Most authors would split this into two, l am very thankful she doesn't, l love a book that takes days to read. This story just captured me, the people, emotions, good and evil and those in between. I even fell in love with a character from hell. Look.. l can ...more

Wow this book is packed full of action, romance, danger, spies, lies, and magic. I must caution it is not a light read. There's death and mayhem as Allura and Reuben are caught up in the hunt to stop the kraken from slaughtering innocent people. At the same time danger lurks at home. Thoroughly enjoyed the mix of different mythologies with new elements thrown in. There is some adult content, but it's not super graphic and doesn't take over the story. Can't wait to read the next book.

Interesting world

Set in a world composed of angels, hell creatures, fae, dragons all combined, this story contains lot of action, heat and romance. Since many stories and backgrounds are introduced, there are spots of story that feels little disjointed; however, enough interesting pieces of storyline will keep you motivated to read until the end. A good beginning of a series.

Loved this book. It was a great into to this world. Allura thinks she is too old to find her fated mate. Ruben thinks his mother abandoned him. They are both on opposite sides of the fae so there should be no attraction. See how they fall in love. There is so much action, love, passion, in this book. I can’t wait to read the next one.

Relationships between fae clans is not allowed. Obviously things don’t always work that way. Amazing characters that are perfect for their part. Just grips you from the beginning and pulls you into the story. Definitely ready for the next one.

Very captivating!

Dragons, kraken, demons, Angel's, archangels, and princes of Hell all combined to create a fascinating story of finding oneself. It has it all. There are twists and turns, romance, betrayal, and redemption. I can't wait to read the second!

Ruben is a dark fae. Allura is a light fae. The two shouldn't mix, but as soon as Ruben lays eyes on her, he must have her. She is his mate. When their dragons emerge to protect the Earth, can their passion be realized?
