Darius Varkas is a drakon. He's neither human nor dragon.
He's also the target of an ancient order who want to capture all drakons for their blood. When fresh, a drakon's blood can cure any illness and prolong a human's life, and the Knights will stop at nothing to get it.
When librarian Sarah Anderson stumbles across a rare book belonging to the Knights of the Dragon, she's quickly thrust into a dangerous world of secrets and shifters and things she never would have believed possible. When the Knights realize Sarah has a secret of her own, she becomes just as much a target as Darius. Her scary dragon shifter just might be her best chance at survival.
I love seeing different authors' takes on fantasy creatures and DRAKON'S PROMISE shows us a world where half dragon half human shifters exist. Just hearing the little tastes of Darius's past and how his powers work and why made me want to read more books about this world before we got to the actual plot of this book. In DRAKON'S PROMISE we have a secret order of knights who want to kill all drakons. I feel like I've read about a secret dragon killing order of knights in another series. Knights and dragons typically go together in a lot of stories and myths so its a tried a true villain to have in this story. I liked how they slowly developed the Order of the Knights of the Dragon as an evil force to be reckoned with for Darius and Sarah to fight against.
Darius comes off as kind of grumpy at first but that's to be expected from a near immortal being. He came off as a bit too much of a domineering alpha but he does warm up a bit later in the book. His alphahole tendencies started to go away after more of his interactions with Sarah. I love Sarah. She is a librarian with a special gift that gets her caught up in the middle of the battle between the Order and drakons and leads her to meeting Darius. She is smart, resourceful and really demands to be treated like an equal by Darius right off the bat. They have such good banter and fit really well together as a couple.
DRAKON'S PROMISE is fast paced, fascinating, and fun. We meet a few of Darius' brothers in this book, who are different sorts of drakons (water, air, earth, etc.). We get glimpsed of their personalities and I am excited to see their stories unfold in this series.Series Titles:
