Dragon’s Claw is a Dory Basarab novella picks up right after Shadow’s Bane. Dory and Louis-Cesare are on their honeymoon when someone starts killing vamps. With bullets. Marlowe is too well known so Dory and Ray end up chasing down a lead to the supernatural side of Hong Kong. Where they accidentally meet up with Pritkin and Zheng Zi on their own mission that appears related.

I really hope we get to visit supe Hong Kong again. It is a crazy interesting place and we barely got to get to know it in this novella. Are there more alternate supernatural cities out there? I am also super excited for Siren’s Song to come out so I can see Pritkin’s side of this insane battle. And how he came to be working with Zheng.

Overall fantastic story that leaves me wanting more. Can’t wait to jump back into this world! ( )

I loved this novella. Full of funny parts that made me laugh out loud. I love the world that Karen has created and that she crosses over characters between the books. I would most definitely recommend this to read, as it’s epic. I don’t know how Karen manages to keep track of everything while she is writing, as she never misses a beat and delivers book after book that are so complex and dynamic. I am in awe. ( )

Another excellent addition to the Dorina Basarab series. Chance just keeps hitting them out of the park! Dragon’s Claw is a novella set after the fourth book in the series Shadow’s Bane with an awesome appearance by Pritkin from the Cassie books!!! I seriously got so excited when he showed up cause we got to see what he’s like after the events of Ride the Storm. We also get to see how Dory is doing with her vampire nature being a lot more dominant and more humorous scenes with Marlowe.

Loved it!! ( )
