About DRAGON KING: A Dark Kings Novella:

A Woman on a Mission

Grace Clark has always done things safe. She’s never colored outside of the law, but she has a book due and has found the perfect spot to break through her writer’s block. Or so she thinks. Right up until Arian suddenly appears and tries to force her away from the mountain. Unaware of the war she just stumbled into, Grace doesn’t just discover the perfect place to write, she finds Arian—the most gorgeous, enticing, mysterious man she’s ever met.

A King with a Purpose

Arian is a Dragon King who has slept away centuries in his cave. Recently woken, he’s about to leave his mountain to join his brethren in a war when he’s alerted that someone has crossed onto Dreagan. He’s ready to fight . . . until he sees the woman. She’s innocent and mortal—and she sets his blood aflame. He recognizes the danger approaching her just as the dragon within him demands he claim her for his own…

Jen’s Review

This was the first time I read something by Donna Grant. I was impressed. The writing is clean and descriptive without being wordy. The story moved at a quick pace.

I thought the characters were rounded out nicely, especially for a novella since shorter pieces tend to lack character development. That wasn’t the case in “Dragon King.”

I liked that this story can be read as a stand-alone. I was able to jump into the series with no problems.

Some readers won’t like the insta-lust and insta-love in this novella. I expected it, so it didn’t really bother me. However, one of my bigger pet peeves, calling female anatomy “her sex,” made me cringe. It’s very common, but still bothers me.

Other than a few inconsistencies where details didn’t match up, I thought this was a great story. If you haven’t read this series yet, you should give it a try. It’s about dragons who can make themselves look like sexy men. From what I can tell, each book is about a dragon finding his destined mate. I’m not normally a big fan of that theme, but Donna Grant did a good job of making it convincing. Plus, I enjoyed the war going on between the Dark Fae and the Dragon Kings. It added some action and danger to the story, which balanced the sex and love.I give “Dragon King” 4.5 stars for an interesting plot, likable characters, and vivid descriptions.
