    I never thought I'd ever create a Goodreads bookshelf named 'Dragons'...

    Dragons, werewolves, aliens... bring it on!!! Clearly there is no inter-species coupling that I won't read!

    Anyways... I loved this story and hope Ruby Dixon continues with this series beyond Amy, and Sasha. I'm being greedy but I want as many dragon books as the Ice Planet series =D

    Let's get this out of the way...I Love Dragons. They're awesome, they spit fire (or lightening, etc.) and you can ride in their backs and destroy cities. But I liked the Ice Planet Barbarians first books better than this one.

    The world/setting is post apocalyptic in a Mad Max kind of way with people living in fortified cities and scavenging for goods. The militia is in power and don't really do anything but act in charge. The threat to mankind comes in scheduled dragon attacks. For reasons no on

    Let's get this out of the way...I Love Dragons. They're awesome, they spit fire (or lightening, etc.) and you can ride in their backs and destroy cities. But I liked the Ice Planet Barbarians first books better than this one.

    The world/setting is post apocalyptic in a Mad Max kind of way with people living in fortified cities and scavenging for goods. The militia is in power and don't really do anything but act in charge. The threat to mankind comes in scheduled dragon attacks. For reasons no one knows, they attack on a schedule. There are smaller reds and larger golds.

    Claudia was arrested scavenging and the mayor decided she could be dragon bait. Like in fairytales, she was chained to a stake in a torn dress. Dragon arrives and....doesn't eat her. Yay? That's right, the dragon doesn't want to BBQ her, but he does want some dragon loving. Lucky for her, he can transform into a human shape. He looks human besides his skin is kind of scales, he's gold, and he has some horns and zero body hair. Not bad at all compared to what some of those alien books try to pass off as humanoid.

    So what follows is caveman style communicating because he doesn't speak anything, but he does understand "no." There's a lot of no-ing from Claudia, even while sexy & naked dragon man is doting on her, feeding her, etc. He worships her. The entire story is mainly from her POV and she's really whiny. Really really whiny. She's a nonstop complainer, even though this is the best her life has been so far. Really, she's clean, always fed, safe, protected, affection, and love. But she's a complainer because he's not human. That's what annoyed me most about this book, Claudia and her nonstop complaining. I also thought her rescue plans for her sister could've been more thought out. Think James Bond, woman.

    Kael, the dragon, was awesome and sweet. I liked his POV, even if it only happened a few times. He was all about doing anything to make his mate, Claudia, happy. And he was generally a really nice dude/dragon. Plus, golden skinned, muscled, 6'6 tall. Yeah. Have I mentioned how well gold goes with my coloring? I'd totally take a golden dragon for my own.

    Not my favorite dragon book. I thought it could've used more editing of Claudia's thoughts, less of her whining and being an ungrateful brat, more Kael. Less repetition. Way too much repetition. I am happy Ruby Dixon has started in this genre and look forward to more dragon books.

    *gasps*

    No.

    Touching.

    Happened.

    Ok. On to the review.

    I was so excited to read this. I've never read any dragon books.

    At least that's what my brain tells me and I'm very sure my brain wasn't lying at all.

    So imagine my delight when

    sent this as a recommendation and my

    were non-stop buzzing about it.

    First Chapter.

    Second Chapter.

    Third Chapter.

    The female character *checks back for her name*, oh right Claudia.

    Fourth Chapter. Fifth Chapter. Sixth Chapter....

    Claudia. Claudia. Claudia.

    Repetition. Repetition. Repetition.

    Time to get rid of these trash.

    ⬇️

    ⬇️

    ⬇️

    Last Chapter

    THEY. NEVER. LEFT.

    I'm rating this two stars.

    One star for the plot and the mind-link. And the other star for Kael.

    Kael was very sweet and dreamy. His only flaw was falling for Claudia.

    Ms Dixon, you need to work on your heroines. Most of them ruin your stories.

    Oh, and one more thing, these dragons do not sport ridges here.

    Very disappointed, I am. But also glad because it will compromise the originality and distinction of Ice Planet Barbarians.

    But then they're dragons.

    Maybe....

    2.5/5

    I had high hopes for this book based on the great impression I’ve had of this author's Ice Planet Barbarians series. The premise sounds very encouraging, but sadly, the novel was a bit of a let-down.

    Apparently, this book both bored me and irritated me in equal measure. The story moved quite slowly and the female lead, Claudia, drove me crazy with her constant whining and idiocy.

    Apparently, this book both bored me and irritated me in equal measure. The story moved quite slowly and the female lead, Claudia, drove me crazy with her constant whining and idiocy. I was sick of her inner monologue which was way too repetitive. You have no idea how many times I wanted to scream at her to shut the hell up while reading her thoughts. I already knew from the first chapter how

    fragile her sister was, no need to hammer it into my head every chapter. If I hear "my poor fragile Amy" one more time, I think I may lose my mind!

    The first half of the story was tolerable—almost good, but the second half felt more like a chore than entertainment. I must admit, around midway through the last half, I had to skim over Claudia's internal thoughts just to finish the book.

    Anyway, this one wasn’t all that bad. What I found particularly fascinating and pleasing about it was the plot and the hero, Kael. Kael is so sweet and caring. He deserved better than Claudia!

    By the way, I’m curious about Dakh so I think I will read the next book, and see if it gets better than this one.

    Dragons? Yes, please!

    The book is describing a post-apocalyptic kind of world where while dragons are either golden or red and they are magnificent, the human cities are utterly destroyed and the humans are beyond miserable.

    So, you can imagine the beautiful and big as buses dragons flying around throwing fire and burn everything to a crisp and the small and insignificant humans running and hiding in holes and praying.

    There is chaos. No food, no fresh water, no clean clothes, no homes, no grass, n

    Dragons? Yes, please!

    The book is describing a post-apocalyptic kind of world where while dragons are either golden or red and they are magnificent, the human cities are utterly destroyed and the humans are beyond miserable.

    So, you can imagine the beautiful and big as buses dragons flying around throwing fire and burn everything to a crisp and the small and insignificant humans running and hiding in holes and praying.

    There is chaos. No food, no fresh water, no clean clothes, no homes, no grass, no trees, no electricity.

    There are some rulers of course, but they are hypocrites and rotten to the core. The Mayor is a bad man, the militia guards are taking advantage of the hungry girls, and the captain does not hesitate to sacrifice humans to the dragons to prove his point.

    Not an ideal world if you are a lonely girl who is trying to survive. Claudia is a strong girl. She was trying very hard to help her sister, Amy, and her best friend, Sasha, by salvaging old technological items from the ruins until she got arrested and she was given to a tremendous dragon as a sacrifice.

    Soon Claudia will find out many unknown facts about the dragons such as they are mostly crazy because they need a mate as an anchor, that they are shapechangers and that Kael, her dragon and wannabe mate, has a body that make her mouth water. There is no chance that she will keep telling him NO for much longer.

    To be honest it took me a while to get used to this world. Humans are dirty and hungry; dragons are half crazy chewing and burning everything alive. It may have destroyed a little my idea of fairytale dragons.

    Moreover some scenes are a bit repetitive. Kael is trying to seduce Claudia, Claudia is resisting and thinking of her sister and friend, Kael is licking, Claudia is saying “No”. Maybe the book would have been okay even with half pages.

    On top of that, I believe the world building is lacking. The book focuses more on the relationship between Kael and Claudia and in the end, I didn’t really learn much about the dragons. What is their world before they appear in Earth? Ok, the skies ripped open and the dragons fell, but from where? Are they aliens? Did they live in a parallel universe? In another planet? In another time period? What on earth happened?

    Finally this is another book, where the female of the species are not good enough. The female dragons are totally crazy, they cannot mate, they cannot communicate, they are mean. Dragons have to mate with human girls to survive. I always wish, every time I start a book like this (where strange species are mating with human brides), that the females of the strange species were less cruel bitches who have to be put aside or to be exterminated.

    Anyway, although the book has its flaws it is still a good adventure. I enjoyed it and I will definitely read the books about Amy and Sasha.
