Can the love between the last dragon shifter and a human save the world from a magical war? Wyatt had given up on love. As the last dragon shifter, he’s resigned to a lonely existence and the fact he’ll never find a mate. Protecting humans and fellow shifters from a rogue warlock faction will have to be enough. Natalie has always wanted more out of life. Being her mother’s caretaker in a small town with too many secrets isn’t the kind of glory her dreams have promised. That’s why she lives vicariously through her best friend — the daughter of a prominent warlock. That is until she meets a brooding and mysterious shifter destined to change everything. The last thing Wyatt wants is to put his mate in danger. Natalie never thought she’d have to betray her best friend. But if they want to prevent a war that could destroy their world, they’ll have to risk their love and their lives or watch everything they know and love burn to ash.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
GAH!!! Wyatt has totally been someone I was lookin’ forward to reading since we were introduced to him. I mean HELLO DRAGON SHIFTER!!! Yes please!!!
The one thing I want anyone to know about this book is the FEELINGS you will get while reading. Wyatt is so afraid to HOPE for a mate. He is beyond numb to the Goddess giving him a mate since he is the LAST Pure Blood Dragon shifter in the world. He has just thrown himself into helping his friends and packs. He is over wanting and wishing and just realized he will be alone until his dragon loses his mind, at which point, he will be “put down”. You can FEEL his loneliness in the story.
When the Goddess grants Wyatt his mate you can actually feel his anger and frustration at this gift of a mate. He is so scared because any mate of his will be a target. You can feel his fear and watch him push away this precious gift!!
Natalie, friends, she is AWESOME!! I mean she is sweet but strong. She is kind but fierce. She will NOT be just a wallflower anymore to her friends. She is starting to realize after being told she is fated to mate a dragon; she needs to be strong and confident. A dragon needs a strong mate not a weak woman.
Again, friends….the anxiety of these two was so heavy!! GAH the push and pull and the almost kisses were driving me CRAZY!! I was like JUST FREAKING KISS AND CLAIM HER WYATT!!!!!!
I can’t say enough about the story because it was probably my favorite story so far in the series and that is saying a lot because I am pretty sure Mack, my baby daddy, is not going to like hearing this news!!!
Seriously, if you enjoy angst, heart, more angst and just all out amazing chemistry, THIS IS A GREAT story for you. Its also a great introduction to the amazing world Miranda has built with the Black Mountain Pack.
Side note: If Stephen doesn’t get a book next, I will cry. His character was so much fun to read!!!
Mother to two boys, 3 four legged babies, and wife to a loving husband who doesn’t mind the extra voices in her head. Miranda grew up on a dairy farm in Illinois, but calls Portland, TN home now. She is an avid reader, coffee addict, and loves her day job working at the local public library. Though her true passion is in creating her own worlds, characters, and stories for her readers.
