Drakon's Past by N.J. Walters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
These books are so much fun to read. Sure, there is a sort of formula to them all, but I don’t care! Each character is unique and their meeting with the differently stubborn dragons sets of a wild series of events.
Constance is really good at finding things. This works out well for her business of reselling vintage items but ends up landing her in hot water when she stumbles upon some dragon related artifacts at an estate sale. The Knights of the Dragon end up in play along with Nic, the solitary unmated dragon of the bunch. Nic is interested in the statues in the way he is interested in amassing a collection, but soon learns that these statues might be nothing but trouble, rumored to be able to capture a dragon if properly aligned. The big bad, however, ends up taking matters into his own hands while Nic finds this information out, taking Constance’s sister hostage.
Poor Constance really can’t catch a break throughout this story. First she’s paired off with the dragon who has the most trust issues. Then she’s got to find a compromise so she doesn’t hate herself when she’s inevitably tasked with betraying Nic or losing her sister. Sure, there are plenty of different decisions I would have made along the way, but with such a fast and furious set of action, I could easily buy Constance’s choices. These two are a great pair and my only complaint would be wanting to see more from them! Maybe next time? I’d love to revisit all the couples in some epic follow-up book. Maybe there could be some massive destruction of the Knights, too. That would be awesome…
