The Dragon's Queen, An Awesome Prequel
on 5 August 2014
This review is from: The Dragon's Queen (Dragon Lords Book 9) (Kindle Edition)
Loving The Dragon Lord Series by Michelle Pillow as much as I do I couldn't wait for the Dragon's Queen to be finished. Throughout all the books in the series Queen Mede has been a character I really enjoy and admire.
Mede has always been a great secondary character but until now we have only had small glimpses into her past.
Now that her wonderful story is told in this new book, I really enjoy and admire her even more.
Mede grew up one of the few precious females to be born on her planet, as well as being the only dragon shifter. Rather than growing up to be like her mother Mede dreams of being a warrior as the other Draig men and yearns to bring honor to her family.
It has been quite an uphill battle for her but one she has conquered very successfully.
During the Dragon Lord books Mede is usually introduced during the Mating Ceremony and she and King Llyr are always portrayed as being quite the loving and extremely affectionate couple that still set each other on fire. Now we get the yummy background details.
I have also loved how Mede interacts with and influences her new "daughters" on the secrets of dealing with her very alpha sons. Always elegant and very wise (especially in the ways of the Draig men), Mede's yearning to form a bond with each of her sons' new wives was a very touching and fun part of each story.
Mede is a headstrong, brave, sassy young woman who has no desire to end up a wife and mother one day. Fate has other plans for her as she finds herself captivated by the handsome Prince Llyr, heir to the Throne of the Draig
Llyr is a true life Prince Charming who knows Mede is his true mate. Now he just has to convince this stubborn proud female that her Destiny lies with him and her place as Queen of The Draig. Of course true love is never that easy and there are several trials and suspenseful situations that they must overcome.
For those who are familiar with the series, there is much background in this prequel that fills us in on not only the courtship of Mede and Llyr but also the story of the Var (the other shape shifters that share their planet), including a young Prince Attor and his evil uncle.
Once again, Michelle Pillows pulls us into her imaginative, magical world of the Dragon Lords and captivates us with the spellbinding story of two key characters we come to love and admire even more.
I highly recommend this awesome, exciting romantic book, it is great addition to this amazing series.
