The story was brilliant, very captivating and the characters drew you in right from the start. I honestly found myself routing for them until the very end. I will say though that many if not all of the plot points of the series I guessed after reading the first book. Still the characters where enough to keep me invested.
What really REALLY let these books down is the truly awful writing. Some sentences didn’t even make sense as WHOLE WORDS where missing, the descriptive sections where in italics if they were in a paragraph of dialogue making it hard to differentiate between the two and over all it just looked like a haphazard job. I found myself having to rewrite sentences in my head constantly so they made sense
The actual writing grammar is clunky and hard to read and actually grated on me through the entire series, whoever proofread this before it was published should be fired. It really let the down what could have been an absolutely phenomenal series.
There were points that were very enjoyable that I liked but overall was disappointing and struggled finishing the last book I found the ending terrible it was just so blah.
Can imagine it would be good for young people reading because it is easy to read but for me I was comparing to other books and this one didnt come close to other series I've read.
If you can avoid thinking about it too hard, the pace and likeable characters make for a very enjoyable read. If you can't it could become a frustrating disappointment. Treat it like a modern blockbuster - switch off your brain and enjoy the pretty pictures.
Spoiler: I would have loved the author to address why just one human family was the only one to bond but sadly it wasn’t in there. Otherwise a good read.

I instantly fell in love! The whole world is captivating with a leading lady you can't help but root for.
It grips you from the start with plenty of action, adventure and romance.
In case you are new to the series, below are my reviews from each of the individual books:
Obsidian – Book 1
I love dragons – the western version, not the eastern version which reminds me far too much of snakes. Or at least I love the idea of western dragons – their majesty and sheer size, and even sometimes their orneriness. So I was right there deep in the story as Aspen meets Obsidian for the first time in his dragon form . To be truthful, I don't know that I would have been as courageous as she was when Obsidian flew right up to her. That was pretty near the beginning of the story, and it just got better from there.
Aspen – Book 2
Aspen and Obsidian are back for more adventure. Too many human body parts have shown up to pretend there isn’t a rogue dragon with a taste for human flesh. Aspen’s love of dragons is a rare point of view among the fear held by most other humans. Relationship problems in the form of Obsidian’s former lover don’t help the stress levels. But we do get to meet several new characters that I loved – like Runa. I was lucky to snag books 2 through 4 when they were on sale near the end of October. The first story was so intriguing that I immediately started this one and did not want to put it down – so I stayed up later than normal to finish it.
Valentine – Book 3
I really, really should not have started this book immediately after the 2nd one of the series with the extra long and busy day I’d already had, but the story line was so intense and engrossing that I couldn’t stop myself. So while it was already late when I began reading it, it was far later in the dark morning hours when I finally put down my Kindle. (Considering I had been nodding off from sheer exhaustion for the previous hour, I managed to read the same couple of paragraphs at least five times before heading to bed. ~lol~) Aspen’s sister joins the story and becomes another main character, all while the rest of them keep the dragon secret from her for much of it. Lots of laugh out loud moments. While not a major character, Runa may actually be my favorite character from the series.
Skye – Book 4
After finishing book 3, I dove directly into this story. While the first 3 books in the series were sequential, this book actually covers time across more than one of the previous books. Not only do we find out why Skye and Rowan have been missing, but we learn the answers to a number of “loose threads” that weren’t super apparent as concepts that hadn’t been fleshed out. So many things that seemed unimportant or just periphery items are explained and the picture zooms out to show us the whole deal (or pretty close to it). The dragons are heading to war, and we find out why and mostly who is on which sides. I zoomed through the story, not able to devour it fast enough. And then the story ended – and I wanted the next installment **now**. ~lol~ I am eagerly looking forward to the 5th story in the series.
The Kings – Book 5
This final installment in the series wraps up all the pieces from the first four books. So many things have been hinted at during the previous stories, and this one reveals which were “red herrings” and which were real foreshadowing. There were even a few things that made me hit my forehead and wonder why I didn’t catch them earlier on. The action will have you cheering, laughing, breathing a sigh of relief, and likely even crying at times.
Well fleshed out characters, story moves quickly making you anticipate whats coming next!
In retrospect I'm thinking this series might just need to be upgraded to young adults and not young teens even though its seems ideal for them.
I remember that there is a violent rape scene. Even so it is relevant to the character in question.
Therefore Parents you might want to read the book yourself first. And it is an enjoyable read nonetheless.
Obsidian is the first book and he is one of 5 royals potential on becoming the next king. But he doesn’t take it seriously because he loves Skye. But that love breaks when he meets Aspen. It ends on a cliffhanger of Aspen meeting the possible dragon killer.
The second book Aspen takes you further into the mystery of the dragon eating humans. Solve this mystery of who it could be as our characters attempt to hunt and kill this clever and sneaky predator and ends with a cliffhanger of Rowan gone missing.
The third book Valentine reveals the prophecy starting by him becoming the second King. He meets Hazel, the Twins oldest sister, on their trip back to Montana. Little do these two know there is conflict with their chemistry. Hazel is fantastic at being a detective and gleaning information to solve puzzles and mysteries and she is determined to find her brother. She just didn’t plan on falling for Val.
Book four is Skye and her story. It falls in sequence after Valentine for chronological order. We find out what happens after she leaves Sid & Aspen, what happens to Rowan from book two’s cliffhanger, and how she and Rowan build a stronger friendship and bond. Their journey is a test of strength, confession, enlightenment and character building.
The last book, five, The Dragon King’s are all together and preparing for war. Utilizing all resources, these three with their queens must ban together to stop the evil witch from killing all unallied dragons and all humans. Facing war on two fronts is not what the dragon king’s have anticipated. Determine their goal is priority as these six individuals attempt to save their entwined worlds: Dragon and Human.
Enjoyable quick read. Loads of action, drama and constant movement.
Skye: The Dragon Kings book 4
If you love dragons, then this is one you do not want to miss. As the fourth book in a series, it can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading the first three to have a better understanding of some of the other characters and situations that arise. This is Rowan and Skye's story and what a engaging one it is filled with romance, intrigue and a whole lot more. Kimberly Loth's writing just makes the reader feel a part of their world and joining along on their quest to gain answers and find out the truth. I have read a few of the author's other stories and she just keeps getting better. I can't wait to read more!
I volunteered to read an arc for a review.
