On the Accidental Wings of Dragons

Dragons of Eternity, Book One

Written by Julie Wetzel

Genre(s): Fantasy




When Michael Duncan is sent to investigate the disappearance of several dragon subjects, he finds himself in a bind. Locked in a dungeon, his only hope lies wrapped in a bundle of cloth tossed at his feet. One kiss and his life is changed forever. Hunted by his own people for crimes he didn't commit, Michael has to learn a whole new life at the hands of a beautiful woman. Can she help him clear his name, or will just being in her presence get him sentenced to death?

Carissa Markel doesn't know who this man chained to the wall is, but he's her only chance for escape. She has power, but, born without a voice, she lacks the means to wield it. One choice, made in desperation, sends them running for his life. Does she have the strength to help him clear his name? And what will her brother, the King of Dragons, do if he finds out what she's done? That's immaterial, the real question is… can she keep her hands off him long enough to find out?





Jinxy's Review


A Modern Dragon Tale

First off, let me say I love any story with dragons in it. Now let me say I do not like my dragons with a side of sex. The book sounded promising when I first spotted it, but admit I was somewhat taken aback when the thoughts of the two main characters, Michael and Carissa, turned (somewhat) lecherous. That being said, the overall storytelling is good, and the book was well-written. There's a bit of a mystery also involved, and Michael winds up being pursued by his own group for something he didn't do. He and Carissa discover each other while imprisoned, escape, and the adventures begin.

Carissa is the sister of the King, and Michael is more of a commoner, although he is a member of a special forces type group called the 'Elites'. Carissa's line are basically human/dragon and I did think it was interesting to read of Carissa putting on a pair of jeans at one point; no maiden fair is she! (She's also a woman with a temper - even the King backs out of the room when she's angry...) I give this book 3-1/2 stars for the reason stated.
