About a Dragon
3 Stars

Rescued by a dragon after nearly being burned at the stake, Talaith finds herself in debt to Briec the Mighty who sees her as his property and will stop at nothing the have her. Unfortunately for Briec, Talaith has other plans and as no intention of submitting to the arrogant dragon.

The world building is weak and vague and although the plot has potential with secret assassins and interfering Gods, it ends up lacking substance.

Talaith's sarcasm and Briec's ego provide excellent banter and some laugh out loud moments. However, their constant sniping and snapping becomes tedious after a while and a relationship based on bickering is not the healthiest. Moreover, the sex scenes do not contribute to the romance and feel more like filler than anything else.

The secondary characters are the real highlight. The dynamic between the dragon siblings is hilarious and the updates in Annwyl and Fearghus's relationship are great. It is just unfortunate that Morfyd and Brasties's budding romance remains underdeveloped though.

On a final note, if there is such a thing as excessively kick-ass heroines, then this series has them. Annwyl, Morfyd, Talaith and now Izzy have an overabundance of estrogen and while it is kinda cool having such powerful women, it is also a little difficult to entirely accept.

In sum, I was considering giving the rest of the series a miss until the intriguing epilogue. It seems that Gwenvael has meet his match, which should be very entertaining. ( )

A romantic, exciting and funny and erotic book. Definitely worth it.

Wow! This book was deliciously good! I don't believe I have read about a more arrogant man in my entire life! Yet somehow instead of making me hate him I am somehow endearing him instead. I want to go flying around on one of these dragons. I was slightly disappointed in Talaith with her screaming and carrying on about it, yet it was funny. And the continuance of Annwyl and Feargus' story entwined with Talaith and Briec's was well done. Not a dull moment in this book either. I absolutely loved this book! ( )

This is Book 2 of G.A. Aiken's Dragon Kin series . . another enjoyable read that could have easily stood on it's own merit had the "dragon porn" aspect been excluded. Action, adventure, romance and a goodly amount of witchcraft, dragon-winged adventure and laugh-aloud humor kept me engaged and anticipating whatever lurked around the next corner. I'm looking forward to Book 3. ( )

This book was so much more complex than the rest that I've read so far. I loved Talaith's backstory and the person she brought out in Briec. I also loved seeing some of the sibling dynamics between Briec and his brothers. It was great getting to see Annwyl again and seeing where their story has led since their book. I am looking forward to reading more about Eihbear and Izzy and even Gwenvael. These books just continue to get better for me. ( )
