“As Director of the Supernatural Enforcement Bureau, powerful Vampire Ronan, thought he had seen it all…until he discovers that Dragons actually exist. Can he help the Dragon being hunted on his patch? He certainly has the means at his disposal…if they can find it first…before the dark magic-wielding Witches and their Vampire cohorts.
After seeing the magnificent beast with his own eyes he can’t turn from the task, even if he wanted to. Especially as his Sire, Josef, gives him a direct command to find the Dragon and keep it safe. No matter the cost.
With rogue Vampires and Witches on its trail, it’s only a matter of time before they capture it. That’s not something Ronan will allow…not on his watch! He will do whatever it takes to find and save the Dragon, using every powerful being at his disposal, including the dark and dangerous Creed.”
I had the pleasure to read the ARC of The Dragon and The Vampire, and below are my thoughts on this story:
This is the first book I read of A. K. Michaels, and I love the paranormal world she envisioned. I’ll definitely go back and read the other titles in her series to get to know all the interesting characters mentioned in The Dragon and The Vampire. I don’t think I’ve ever read a novel about a dragon shifter, and that makes this story unique to me. Starr is larger than life. I like Ronan a great deal. His attitude–macho outside but soft-hearted inside–is very sweet and he speaks in a different language, which made the dialogues fun to read. I also tried to pronounce a few of the words, but I don’t think I came even close to the way they should be spoken. Then Starr appears. She steals the scene from the moment she enters the stage and she remains the absolute protagonist of the story. The artist who worked on the cover did an amazing job at capturing Starr, because the image matches how I painted her in my mind while I was reading the book. Thanks, Ava, for giving me the opportunity to read The Dragon and The Vampire before it comes out. It was a privilege and a pleasure. Can’t wait to read the next in this series.
