Try a little dragon tenderness.
I am Ghleanna the Decimator. I am a warrior. A soldier. I know no fear. No pain. No mercy. I do, however, know acute embarrassment! How could I not after getting dumped by a bastard dragon in front of my own troops? So I tuck tail and return to my cave, drowning my sorrows in ale—as is my family’s way. But instead of leaving me to my misery, I’ve been summoned to the Dragon Queen’s court.
As if my life wasn’t pathetic enough, Her Majesty now has me escorting the highborn Bram the Merciful through dangerous territories—not exactly the best use of my military training. And just so he can negotiate with enemy dragons instead of battling them? Honestly, what has my world come to? Then again…Bram is quite easy on the eyes. And the perfect distraction for what ails me. Perhaps I’m looking at all this the wrong way. Maybe there is a place for a little “mercy” in my life…

I would’ve never thought that Dragon on Top by G.A. Aiken – Ghelenna’s story (sister of Berclack – father of Fearghus, Gwenvael, Briec, and Eibhear) – would’ve been the one that I favored most out of theses novellas within the Dragon Kin series. Not only her character but Bram’s character shocked me as well. These two characters placed in the same book together was perfection!
I had previously read Rhiannon and Berclack’s story at the end of Dragon Actually, but it was great to read about the parents of Fearghus, Gwenvael, Briec, and Ebihear in Dragon on Top. The whole broad of Aileen the Wicked are so awesome both as warriors and characters that being able to read about them in each installment is always a treat.
Dragon on Top didn’t just tell a hilarious and one of a kind romance between Ghleanna and Bram, but further set the stage for the full length books that were to come afterwards. Ghleanna may be the dominant one out of their relationship but behind closed doors she trusts Bram enough to allow him free reign, and oh does he take advantage lol.
Each novella installment has given us a deeper glimpse into this vast world that G.A. Aiken has created. We’ve learned about the Lightning’s (savages of the Northland), we learned about the Pernaddun (women dragon warriors) in A Tale of Two Dragons, and in
Now that I’m all caught up, and with the hint that was dropped about Gwenvael at the end of Dragon on Top I am excited to see all that his story has to offer.
