Dragon Soul by Katie MacAlister
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
These books are wacky, fun, and filled with magic. This one in particular was filled with some truly entertaining antics. While it can probably be read as a standalone, it is better read as part of the series.
Sophea is a broke woman who has gleefully agreed to help an elderly woman to her cruise in exchange for a free vacation of her own. What starts as a seemingly easy task quickly gets out of control. Aside from her own thieving tendencies, Mrs. P has apparently attracted quite a crowd of assassins, the first of which strikes before they even land in Europe. Luckily, a helpful hottie ends up assisting in Sophea's protection of Mrs. P and they are able to arrive alive. Sadly, this helpful hottie has other motivations.
Rowan (aka the Dragon Breaker) has one chance to save his own life. Simply steal a ring and then beg for forgiveness from the first dragon. Without any leverage, he will surely be sentenced to death. Oh, and he is also completely smitten with the woman who has been tasked with protecting the new owner of said ring. Sophea quickly outs herself as being completely innocent as far as dragon politics and magic go. She may have married a dragon for a day a couple years ago, but somewhere along the brief romance he never mentioned anything about breathing fire.
These two together are amazing! The witty banter and sizzling chemistry made for a truly excellent read. Even if you don't know who all the other characters are from previous books, the zany antics are hilarious. They even manage to get a nice wrapped up HEA where good gets to conquer evil. If the books continue to be this good, I'm eager to see where the author takes us next.
