Not sure if the freebie version that I got was different, but this was far too short to make it believable.

This is a very short novella that ends at 52% of the download, the rest being snippets of LA's previous books, telling us about her achievements. I'm not knocking the latter or this book in any way, as it was well-written, but it didn't have any depth to it, and not much substance or background, and the way the reader is thrown into the tale did make me confused for at least 2/3 pages.
From what I could make out, Nisha is a 'no questions asked courier' in post-apocalyptic Earth, which in 2066 spun weirdly on its axis, killing off civilisation as we know it, and 300 years on, it's each person for him/herself. She's been tasked with a delivery, with instructions - a la Gremlins - not to give the contents water/light, similar, but of course, she just has do, and as the name suggests, a Drake/male dragon, Drakor, is revealed, and of course, they have to join forces and go on the run.
Danger is there, but it's fleeting and quickly forgotten and left behind. A day after knowing each other, there are avowals of love, which just sounded false. This would have been pretty decent as a longer novella/full length tale, as the brief mention we got of Nisha's ancestry and past was quite interesting, and with Drakor being kind of the paranorms, there was much potential there, especially in the way in which he came to power.
Readable, but no way a 5* read, and not a Keeper, unlike her Midnight Breeds novels.
