What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
They say I’m the Dragon Fae. They say I’m the savior of our people. I know they’re wrong.
My entire life I’ve been an assassin, but after a botched job, I’m the most wanted sorceress in the world. I lie low, taking whatever jobs I’m given. When I’m assigned a new partner, a dragon shifter named Deacon, he strides into my life like he belongs, whether I want him or not.
When the fae court declares I’ve fulfilled an ancient prophecy, they anoint me the Dragon Fae, the mythical savior of our people. That explains Deacon’s presence. He’s the Dragon Fae’s fated mate. Problem is, the fae court is manipulating this sacred legend. Lies may be my trade, but I can’t stand for this deception.
So I cut a deal. If Deacon and I can stop a terrorist plot, I can go back to lying low. If we fail, they’ll make me the Dragon Fae. I was raised on this myth, and the most memorable part? The Dragon Fae dies young and alone–and the fae court has shown they’ll do whatever it takes to make the prophecy come true.
Dragon Fae Prophecy is the first book in a fae urban fantasy series with a slow-burn romance.
Thoughts on Dragon Fae Prophecy
This is technically an urban fantasy, but it felt much more like a fantasy – and the beginning of an epic adventure. There is the feel of a spy thriller, the addition of magic and a race to stop a massacre. Nice.
Lying was part of my job, not part of my character (2%)
It unsettled me. I was in the business of taking down villains. I didn’t like villains with a story. It complicated things. (32%)
- World building is intriguing.
- Pint…. I love him.
- The role of duty.
- Plot is expansive and sometimes hard to follow.
First Person, Single POV
PG-15 (This is not a YA novel, but it is easily read by a younger audience, lacking sexual content, minimal language and non-graphic violence)
Character Age Range
Unsure, but adults.
My Final Verdict on Dragon Fae Prophecy
Fast and plot thick, this Urban Fantasy packs a punch – and is free on KU.
