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 never thought that Dragon on Top by G.A. Aiken would’ve been the story I favored most out of the novellas within this series. This story focused on the dragons Ghelenna (sister of Berclack – father of Fearghus, Gwenvael, Briec, and Eibhear) and Bram. 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 (purchase). It was great to read about the parents of Fearghus, Gwenvael, Briec, and Ebihear in Dragon on Top. The whole generational clan of Aileen the Wicked was awesome to learn about. They’re all warriors and the privilege to read about them in each installment is always a treat.
Dragon on Top by G.A. Aiken presented both a hilarious and engaging romantic story that held my attention. Furthermore, this novella, continued building the foundation for the future full length books.
Ghleanna may appear dominant out of the two in public, but it’s a different story behind closed doors. It’s found that 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. In one of the novellas we learned about the Lightning’s (savages of the Northland) history, or origin story. We also learned about the Pernaddun, women dragon warriors, in A Tale of Two Dragons (review). Now in
Now that I’m all caught up I am excited to see all that Gwenvael’s story has to offer.
