New Release: The Last Dragon Princess

41729025The Last Dragon Princess

Her birth was an act of treason.
But now she’s their last hope.
Born with the marks,
She must choose the next King,
And stand against the GodsOn this world, the created have turned against their Creators. War has raged for generations – the Creators fight to regain their power over the Hisgeii, and the Hisgeii strive to escape enslavement and claim the world as their own. Some Hisgeii are born with intricate, branching red marks on their backs. The marked men are called Shifters and can transform into dragons with magical abilities specific to their caste. The female marked are called Breeders and are treated as royalty amongst the Hisgeii.

Danu is one such Breeder, though her markings came with a steep price. She has recently come of age, and in order to become Queen, the Council has commanded her to choose a mate to be her King.

Danu is of the last generation of Hisgeii with any hope to defeat their would-be enslavers. With time running out, she must navigate the heated political climate, learn what it means to be a marked member of the lowest caste, decipher the complex and torrid history of the war between the Hisgeii and the Creators, differentiate between outright lies and mere twisted stories of ancient legend, fight alongside a flock of dragon Shifters against powerful aliens believed to be immortal gods, deal with a rogue Shifter whose body bares unusual scars, and unite with a mate to decide on the future of her people.

Seems easy enough… except she has only two weeks to do it.

“The Last Dragon Princess” follows Danu as she seeks to lead her people, find her place, and choose a love to balance her as she takes the throne. Fans of dragon shifter fantasy, reverse harems, Greek mythology, and fast-paced adventures loaded with romance and political intrigue will love this unexpected and one-of-a-kind epic novel.

This is a standalone novel with NO cliffhangers!

Review: It seems I’ve been on a RH kick lately…😉

That said, it’s given me a new appreciation for PNR series. When I was offered a chance to read this one, I happily agreed! And for the most part, I loved it! Danu lives in a world of dragon-shifters…a world that is quickly dying out. When she comes of age, she has some pretty difficult choices to make.

While I loved the world-building and the characters, I felt the book was rushed, and I would have loved to see more of the characters’ personalities and had more emotion involved. The romance side of things is the hardest to overlook. Since that’s a large part of the story, I feel it could have used more time and focus. That said, this is still a satisfying read, and one I can easily recommend to RH fans!
