I loved the storyline and the world that has been created here! These characters are not dragons, but drakons, their father being a dragon. Then you have the Knights, an ancient cult, hunting the drakons for their blood, which has miraculous properties.
Darius is the focus of this book, a self made businessman to the public, but also a drakon in hiding. The Knights are on to him, and are taking steps to track him down. Sarah overhears some conversation she shouldn't, and doesn't like where its headed, and so goes to warn Darius that he is in danger, even though she knows nothing about him or why he is in danger, or his true nature.
There are some great plot twists in here that I really enjoyed. I loved Sarah, she's hard working and loves books, has a unique talent, but is honourable and wants to do the right thing. Darius is a force to be in awe of, his hard blunt beauty, big, strong, fiercely loyal and unwavering love for his family. Their connection grew on me as I read more of the book. There are some hot steamy scenes in here also.
The book is told in a dual POV and also from some of the baddies, so that you get an overall story of what is going on, which I really liked. A great start for a new series, I can't wait to read book 2.
Wow I absolutely loved Drakon's Promise: it had action, suspense and a romance which literally takes your breath away.
Sarah gets her dream job, in a private library but evidently, it's too good to be true. She overhears a private conversation; whereby plans are being made to kidnap and experiment on someone called, Darius Varkas. They know about her special abilities but how? She needs to get away fast but she needs to warn Darius of the danger that's headed his way.
Darius feels empty and his heart feels lonely, likes it's missing something warm and meaningful. When his doorman delivers a mysterious message from an unknown woman, he rings her but the information she has is too valuable to discuss over the phone. When he meets her, he's instantly drawn to her - but why? He feels a overwhelming sense of protectiveness to a woman he hardly knows: is she a spy? Can he trust her?
As Sarah and Darius work together to destroy the evil book: they face many unknown obstacles and dangers ahead. Will they survive what's to come?
This was an incredible book to read: there were times I was gripping the edge of my seat and others where my face couldn't get any closer to my kindle. The book was exciting, gripping and intense. Their chemistry was fiery hot and it intensified as the book progressed. I loved the characters: he's dominant, sexy and protective whereas, she's strong, independent and brave. They both complemented each other beautifully. The author has written an amazing book which literally gets your heart pounding. I'm definitely adding her to my favourite author list and eagerly await for the next book,
I really liked the twist on the dragon lore, the crazy and creepy book and how drakon shifters came to be.
Sarah Anderson is a librarian who deals with antique books. Her gift of psychometry helps her date the books and find out if they are original copies. Working for her new employer, Sarah stumbles on potential criminal intent along with a book like an aura that she never encountered before. Sarah mostly ordinary life turns upside down when she meets Darius.
Darius Varkas is a drakon, a child of a human mother and his drgaon shifter father. In the past, Drakon’s were hunted and kept captive for their blood by the Knights, which not only keeps one young but also gives the individual some powers. However in the past few years everything has been relativity clam which promptly ends when Sarah discovers the Knight’s plot against Darius.
I really liked Darius and Sarah together. Sarah was great strong heroine, she wanted to help Darius warn him of his impending captivity when she ends up being taken along an adventure with Darius. I also really loved Sarah’s love for ancient books who wouldn’t want to be interested in knowing more about the old and fascinating books. Darius has heard about females who were destined to be mates of drakons but always thought them a myth however his and dragon’s reaction to Sarah makes him question the myth.
With sparking chemistry, budding connection, romance and caring between Sarah and Darius along with the slight suspense and threat of violence and impending danger from the Knights made it for a interesting read.
Quibbles: It’s was mentioned that Sarah did a Phd and she had an excellent academic career, I would liked to know a bit more about that since after the appointment with her boss it was never mentioned again and considering she was very young when she went to high school and university it must have had an impact on her but it never came back up and I would liked to know a bit more Darius past as well, we did get to know a bit but I’m greedy.
The world building was done pretty well and I’m hoping we get to see more development and history of the drakons and Knights. I also liked the lore of dragon’s, it was slightly different from other dragon shifter books as was why they ‘Knights’ hunted them.
I’m very interested to see how the other brothers; stories play out and from the little chapter we got from Valeria’s POV it seems like she and Darius’s brother Tarrant would be getting the next book and since he currently happens to be a very unhappy and grieving drakon, it will make things certainly complicated and interesting.
This was a great start to a new series! Can’t wait to see what more N.J. Walters has in store for us. Bring on more dragons, I say!
