DRAGON ACTUALLY BY G.A.AIKEN PDF

When I heard you were expanding beyond the pack books written as Shelly Laurenston to this Dragon Kin series, I was really looking forward to these new books. Not only do I have a soft spot for dragons, but I still love the tough, independent heroines for which you are known. But in terms of the overall world-building, character, and relationship development, the book read to me like more of a draft than as finished, polished work. Her impressive bravery right to the end is impressive, however, especially to the enormous black dragon who inhabits the land on which she is fighting.

When I heard you were expanding beyond the pack books written as Shelly Laurenston to this Dragon Kin series, I was really looking forward to these new books. Not only do I have a soft spot for dragons, but I still love the tough, independent heroines for which you are known. But in terms of the overall world-building, character, and relationship development, the book read to me like more of a draft than as finished, polished work. Her impressive bravery right to the end is impressive, however, especially to the enormous black dragon who inhabits the land on which she is fighting.

So enlisting his sister, Morfyd, a witch, to heal Annwyl, he becomes determined to keep her safe and help ensure that she can finish her deadly business with Lorcan, whose bloody reign and taste for torture are ruining the kingdom.

Unbeknownst to Annwyl, Fearghus and his kin can transform into humans, so while Annwyl knows the two as dragon and human, and not as dragon siblings, they hold the ancient power of both species.

Annwyl shares and stronger and stronger emotional bond with Fearghus the dragon, and an incendiary physical passion with his human counterpart, all the while never suspecting they are one and the same.

Fearghus, in the meantime, grows more and more afraid of telling Annwyl the truth, even as her time in his presence grows shorter and, most unluckily, several of his siblings and his father show up to complicate things considerably. She grows more and more in love with the dragon and more turned on by the human, while Fearghus knows without ambiguity that he is completely in love with Annwyl and increasingly afraid she will feel betrayed by and ultimately reject both parts of him.

The story is not particularly complex, nor are the main characters. Initially, defeating the brother seems urgent, although the urgency fades during the part of the story in which the romantic bonds grow, re-emerging near the end as the action picks up toward the climax and resolution of the Annwyl v. Lorcan conflict. For me, the primary appeal of Dragon Actually was the kick-ass sassy heroine and the Shelly Laurenston trademark sarcasm:.

How cute. Bercelak sent her a little something to munch on. You never knew what you might learn. The human female did not answer. She just stared at her.

A typical response when humans saw her. She stood much larger than most dragons. I do not know an Annwyl. So are you my dinner? All good. Beyond that, though, I really have little to say about this story. It took me an incredibly long time to get through it, actually, as I picked up the book and put it down more times than I can count.

There were moments where I felt that it was bad enough to be good, and times I felt it was just meh. Things bothered me. Just how did the beast tan his own wings, and are they original dragon hide?

Rhiannon is a white dragon, which means that she should be very strong in the Magick dragons are color coordinated, so blue dragons have blue hair in human form and the like ; however, she is much weaker than she should be.

And now Addiena has decided that her daughter Rhiannon should be Claimed by Bercelak. Unbeknownst to Rhiannon and Addiena, Bercelak has always had a thing for Rhiannon; not only is she the sexy, homicidal older woman, but her haughty beauty entrances the somber Bercelak from his first glance. Given a choice, Bercelak would choose Rhiannon over her mother, although that is not much of a comfort to Rhiannon, who does not trust anyone or anything linked to her ruthless mother, at least not until Bercelak and his family prove their loyalty to her by taking on her case against Adienna.

Like Dragon Actually , Chains and Flames contrasts a destructive family relationship with a nurturing romantic attachment. They indulge in testing the limits of their power, as dragons, as humans, and as a couple. I understand from the Samhain bookstore that this book was previously published by Triskellion, but since it is now being published by Kensington and Samhain, I am assuming that it has been edited for republication.

On the one hand, I have no problem with ebooks reissued by print houses, since there is much excellent work in epublishing my favorite Laurenston books are those Pack Challenge books published by Samhain.

On the other hand, these stories simply felt anemic to me, and finding out they were reissues made me wonder how they differ from the originals.

Whatever the changes, they were not enough for me to find these two stories as compelling as I wanted them to be. Dragon Actually finished as a C- and Chains and Flames a C, not horrible, but not outstanding in any way, either.

This book can be purchased in mass market from an independent bookstore or ebook format from the Sony Store and other etailers. Historical Romance was her first love within the genre, but she's fickle and easily seduced by the promise of a good read. And she's always looking for the next mind-blowing read, so feel free to share any suggestions! G really enjoyed it. The sarcasm and humor were great, but I found the heroine a little too much for me.

However, I greatly enjoyed the dialogue in the book and found myself skipping all the sex scenes to get to them faster.

BTW, Robin, I read the paperback edition and was distracted constantly by the grammatical errors. Did you have the same problem with the electronic edition? I just loved Briec. I just bought both in print plus the reprints of her Mangus pack. My hands down favorite of hers remains Here Kitty, Kitty , which I just reread — again. The C grade seems fair. And the story of their parents, while interesting, always did seem like just background information to me.

The problem with Annwyl and Fearghus is that they are played up as being totally larger than life in About A Dragon. There was so much similarity in the setting and characters, the sense of deja vu was so strong, I checked and sure enough they were. Just typing out the title makes me smile. Perhaps I will do a little comparison. Thanks, Bev! After a while, it got very tiring to read about her because of all the yelling and stomping about. Mine were truly weird when reading Dragon Actually after reading the other one first.

I think. Especially the dragons. The one that was giving me problems, though, and throwing me was the heroine, Annwyl. So I went back and dug around for some info and sure enough, found that it was Laurenston and the rewrite of the first book in her dragon series. Which I had known was in a holding pattern and was hoping was eventually going to come out again. Of course, then I was sitting there reassured in my own mental state but wondering what in the world had happened to this woman.

Or worse. Is it? Annwyl is one of my all time fav heroines. Shelly Laurenston is a total auto buy, and has been since I found her on trisk.. Mainly for her Hs, there is just something about a borderline psychotic or just plain crazy H which appeals to me, especially after spending my life being angry about the lack of strength in the majority of romance heroines.

Janet :my daughter read all three of the of the dragon series and keep laughing; so I had to read them, I read at work and laught so much my friends are linging up to read them. I love the way that all kin stay in all the books and not forgotten in the books after they found thier mates. The heroines have to be over the top to be a mate to a dragon.

If she worried about breaking her nails how would she be able to handle a dragon. I love all the ways the family is so differnet, the fighting with each other, the playing, love and careing for one another the way really familys are.

I would even like to see the aunt in the north more. We do not purchase all the books we review here.

Review: Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken

Posted April 9, by Holly in Reviews 5 Comments. It's not always easy being a female warrior with a nickname like Annwyl the Bloody. Men tend to either cower in fear - a lot - or else salute. It's true that Annwyl has a knack for decapitating legions of her ruthless brother's soldiers without pausing for breath. But just once it would be nice to be able to really talk to a man, the way, she can talk to Fearghus the Destroyer. Too bad that Fearghus is a dragon, of the large, scaly and deadly type.

Dragon Actually / A Tale of Two Dragons

Too bad that Fearghus is a dragon, of the large, scaly, and deadly type. With him, Annwyl feels safe-a far cry from the feelings aroused by the hard-bodied, arrogant knight Fearghus has arranged to help train her for battle. With her days spent fighting a man who fills her with fierce, heady desire, and her nights spent in the company of a magical creature who could smite a village just by exhaling, Annwyl is sure life couldn't get any stranger. She's wrong. This review pertains to the former only. Synopsis Anwyl is a fearsome warrior with a Another novella, eventually I will get to the full books!
