DRAGON ACTUALLY

DRAGON ACTUALLY by G.A. Aiken
Genre: fantasy

Verdict: Short and sweet

There are actually two stories in the book which I consider a treat although that also means that the stories are short given that the book is of a regular paperback thickness (342-pages-thick). The first story is longer than the second one. Caption below refers to the first story, which is the main one. The second story is what I call a "side-story" regarding a couple of the characters in the main story which I enjoyed reading. I liked the fact that I had another one to read after the happy ending. I also liked the family dynamics which is very endearing. On the whole, this book is a bit on the cheesy side. And the "suspension of disbelief" was a bit difficult for a few of the scenes.

Caption at the Back:
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. 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 stanger. She's wrong...

I just read the second book in this series. It was a great read. I'll be reviewing it in the next couple of weeks.
