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.
Seriously, I am obsessed with dragon books! This is a must read for me.
I do like that tat
I’ve read maybe … three books wit dragons, and I don’t know why I haven’t read more. This seems like a PNR series to try and get some more dragon time.
yes they’re fun!
I love this is about dragons and glad it was a good read too! Have a wonderful weekend Melliane!
yes always good when it’s about dragons
I read a lot of paranormal romance Melliane, so this is clearly a good book for me. DRAGONS!!!! Yes pleasse:)
I hope you’ll like it if you try it!
<333 dragon books! I'm curious if the blow-up sheep made an appearance though lol
I haven’t read a really good dragon book in a long time, and this sounds like one to try, plus I like that it has a whoel lot of paranormal stuff going on.
this one is really fun, you should try!
I agree with you, KM is more for entertainment than mental stimulation. I love her sense of humor!
I read the spin-off and met Constantin. So this is his book! I like the dude, he got my attention.
me too! it’s always somuch fun!
Well, you know I love PNR and all you really had to say was DRAGONS! LOL Glad you enjoyed it with the first one. Brilly review.
yay for dragons!
Seriously…going down to the demon world is bound to bring out personal demons as well. He should have mentally prepared. LOL
But this sounds pretty epic.
I love dragons..I need to read this series. Hello demons:)
Paranormal Romance isn’t my usual genre either, but hellooooooo dragons. Dragons make everything better, and this review actually makes me very curious about their involvement!
right? when it’s about dragons it’s easier!
YAY dragons! I haven’t read any MacAlister books yet, Melliane, maybe I’ll try to remedy that in the new year 🙂
you should try!
It is always so fun to see a character rant….it always makes the story more unique and fun. I love this author but haven’t read her lately. Been tempted to read this one soon though.
I hope you’ll enjoy it if you try it!
I can’t say I’ve read too many dragon books in the past, so this is a new territory for me. I’ll definitely keep it in mind.
I need to try Katie MacAlister again sometime. I read her a long time ago. I don’t remember why she feel off my reading list. I need to try her again. Seeing this review reminds me of that.
I hope it will be better if you try again!
She really is an amazing talent. This series (well the Aisling ones) were some of my first pnr reads ages and ages ago 🙂 It was so fun getting back into the series 😀
I haven’t read the first one but I have book 1 or I think so
I recently found several of her books at a used bookstore but haven’t read any of them yet. I also just got a Kindle book by her. Not even sure which dragon series is which so I probably have some of each. I hope I don’t have to read them in order. Glad you loved this one!
