Dragon Kin #4
by: G.A. Aiken
$6.99 mass market paperback
Released: September 2010
As the youngest daughter to the dragon queen, Princess Keita has often been overlooked as shallow and useless. Her reality, though is so much more. Captured in the Northlands by their king, she's rescued by Ragnar the Cunning, the king's son and leader of the resistance against his father. She figures he'll use her as a bargaining tool with her mother, but is shocked when he lets her go instead.
Years later, she runs into him again while awaiting public execution for a crime she didn't commit. Once again he rescues her but this time takes her back to her mother. Although he's got to be the most annoying dragon on the face of the earth, she can't help but be attracted to his strength, his cunning, and his wicked good looks. She begins to play a dangerous game with him, never realizing the stakes would be so high-her heart.
I'm not really doing these books justice with the blurbs, mostly because there's so much going on in the story , there's no way I can possibly get it all into two paragraphs. G.A. Aiken has brilliantly managed to combine humor, love, loss, redemption, and carnage into a novel that I've read twice now and plan to read again. For me that's rare, because I hardly ever go back and re-read a series. To read something more than twice is truly a compliment to the author.
