Black Dragons, Book 2
Synopsis: TURN ON THE CHARM
According to some (including himself), Constantine is one of the greatest heroes of dragonkin who ever lived. Too bad he’s now lonelier than ever and his biggest adventure involves a blow-up sheep—until he has an opportunity to save his kind once again. All Constantine has to do is break into a demon’s dungeon, steal an ancient artifact, and reverse a deadly curse. The plan certainly does not involve rescuing a woman…
TURN UP THE HEAT
Bee isn’t sure whether to be infuriated or relieved when Constantine pops up in her prison. The broody, brawny shifter lights her fire in a way no one ever has before, yet how far can she really trust him? Their chemistry may be off the charts, but when push comes to shove, Constantine will have to make a crucial choice: to save the dragons or the woman he’s grown to love with fierce intensity.
Review: I do not necessarily read a lot of paranormal romances but when it comes to Katie McAlister, I never ask myself many questions. This is an author who has an undeniable talent to present her readers with something a little different with always a big touch of humor that is really appreciated! I also had a great time with the first volume and I did not wait long to dive into this one to find out what the author would present us again. Did I say that there were dragons?
We therefore discover Constantine, the ghost of an ancient dragon, wandering like a lost soul until his former girlfriend, Ysolde, offers him a new quest: the ability to break the curse that keeps all the dragons. Attractive, is not it? Except for this, Constantine must travel to the demons’ world to try to recover an ancient talisman and thus regain its former glory. However, things did not really go as planned and that starts with his meeting with a Charmer, Bee, who is prisoner by the demons but with the same mission; or meeting with Gary, the talking head. Yes, you read it correctly, a talking head. I also loved that character, he is completely crazy, pretty boring it must be said, and he loves ranting about all sorts of topics! His scenes are always so fun to follow. But back specifically to the main characters. We therefore follow Constantine, who, it must be said, has an oversized ego but that is seen fairly quickly. He does not hesitate to speak his mind whenever he wants to and it was pretty fun to see him evolve around Bee. In terms of the young woman, I appreciated the fact that she resists him initially despite the advances of the man and it is true that I also liked her gentle and determined nature. In short, a pretty cool duo as you can see.
Returning to the story, the two will have to team up to try to understand what exactly is happening with this curse that ultimately seems more complicated to break than expected. Moreover, Constantine will face the demons of his past he thought he had left behind long ago.
You will therefore understand that once again the author presents a very nice story and I was very happy to have the opportunity to discover it. To see what happens afterwards with such purpose.
