Realm Of The Dragon
by CiCi Cordelia
An ancient legend spanning eras, continents, and worlds. To some, it’s nothing more than a dream. To others, a pretty fairy tale handed down through the generations.
For those in critical need of their own happy ending, a gift.
For sheltered Lily Kiers, it’s all too real. Her escape from danger, straight into the arms of her destiny.
Thrust into a realm made of fantasy and unbridled passion, Lily faces violent resentment and jealousy from extremely powerful enemies. Amidst fierce creatures whose very existence defy all common sense, Lily pieces together a past she could never have imagined.
Claimed by Kord, Prince of Battle Draconian, their love will not be denied, even as malevolent forces plot to rip them apart.
Free to ponder, as his mother had urged, Kord shook off the troublesome feeling of being torn in several directions. He knew his parents worried, and he couldn’t avoid the inevitability of choice much longer.
Royals had strict duty to family and kingdom. Kord’s mate had been near her time of majority when he’d traveled to Anglican to meet her. The kingdom in an uproar, her tearful parents had met him with the devastating news of her death. Instead of a joyous announcement of impending joining, he’d returned to Draconian alone.
His dragon had been uncharacteristically silent since that fateful day, and Kord missed his beast’s conversation.
Enough, he thought bitterly, saddened and angered by the loss of a mate he never knew.
Refusing to dwell on things he couldn’t control, he cleared his mind of the memories and dove lower, seeking what enjoyment he could muster from the day.
Suddenly, something dropped onto his back, between his wingspan.
Something cold and soft.
Something that had limbs . . . and smelled unfamiliar. Not of this realm.
“What the demon?” He banked quickly as he felt the lightweight, chilled lump slide precariously to the left. Worried it might fall—whatever it was—Kord maneuvered gingerly, until he could descend safely into an open pasture.
He touched down lightly over the bumpy ground-scrub, careful to avoid jostling his unknown burden, turned his head to glance behind him . . .
And stared disbelieving at a vision from a dream.
I didn’t actually expect to like this book much as the cover led me to believe it was what I consider a “trashy romance,” but I was pleasantly surprised. Perhaps it is the combination of fantasy with the romance that made it more appealing. Lily, falls into the Dragon Realm and meets Kord, a half-man, half-dragon prince, who claims she is his mate. He must then convince her, but Tasha wants Kord for herself and will go to any length to get him. There is plenty of steam in this book for those of you seeking it; I would not read this book with small children around who can read words (too much explaining there). There were a few slightly cheesy parts, like the brother. I don’t know why, but he seemed cheesy to me, but all in all the story was interesting and engaging, so I give this book 4/5 stars.
