"A hot, hot series." --Library Journal
"Sizzling." --RT Book Reviews
Braith of the Darkness likes going through life unnoticed. Not an easy task for a She-dragon of royal descent. But the evil plots of her father are turning her quiet, boring life upside down, and she has now become the enemy of the most vicious queen her kind has ever known. But for once, Braith won't have to fight alone. Not when the warrior dragon of her dreams is willing to risk everything to save her neck.
Addolgar the Cheerful wishes he could say he's helping the pretty royal strictly for honorable reasons--but he'd be lying. It's not his fault, though! He didn't tell Braith of the Darkness to have the most delicious tail he's ever seen! Yet before Addolgar can get his very strong claws on that tail, heads are going to roll. Just hopefully not theirs. . .
"A chest thumping, mead-hall rocking, enemy slaying brawl of a good book." --All Things Urban Fantasy on The Dragon Who Loved Me
A Tale of Two Dragons by G.A. Aiken started off somewhat rocky for me. There were some highs and some lows for the characters within this story and I started dreading the rest of the story.
As for the main characters, Addolgar and Briath, they were enjoyable enough characters apart. Together, their irritating dialogue and actions interrupted the flow of the story.
Briath became fixated on remaining an honorable dragon, which normally wasn’t a bad thing. Her focus on this character trait and her method in achieving this status left her looking absolutely dumb. Her character irritated me with her idiotic actions. It was in the revelation of the true character of her dad I began to look more favorably upon her.
On the flip side, Addolgar was a cheerful fellow. Except for his interactions with Briath and his family, his character was sort of boring. Truthfully, his character wasn’t allowed to develop.
A Tale of Two Dragons (purchase) by G.A. Aiken embodied its title. It was literally a tale about two dragons..
