Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smolder (Dragon Souls Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Found this as a freebie on Amazon which after reading I was really surprised at as the story was amazing and completely addictive, it did have some editing errors but it's a great start to a new series.
Marina has had to deal with the death of an amazing mother so after discovering some property she'd bought she takes her best friend Cat to see what it's like. Whilst on a hike she sees the skies turn to fire and a beast from fantasy emerge from them. She knows after seeing him her lives changed forever but what she doesn't first know is the beast is also a man.
Koen is destined to lead his people but first he must find his Empress. None has been suitable for him and he's coming to resent his Kingdom and their ways. Whilst evading the latest females pursuit he crash lands in front of a woman who will change his life forever.
I loved this story. The background story, characters and world it's set in are fabulous if not reminicent of the Asian culture.
Really gelled with Marina's character as she's completely true to herself and just seems normal. She isn't overtly girly or trying to play the tough female so she sat in a happy medium.
The males like Nikolai, Daniil and Koen are all great and equally play their part in Marina's life. Koen should have been closer to her but the rules of his world say he must distance himself until they can officially Marry.
I orderd the sequel as soon as I finished it
