It's Star Trek vs Romeo and Juliet vs Twilight! OK, not really. It's about Jacinda a Draki, a descendent of dragons. She breaks a rule and to save her from punishment her mother takes her and her sister away from the pride. Jacinda is not happy about this and we listen to her whine for pages and pages until...she meets Will. (sigh!) Then she proceeds to talk about how wonderfully handsome he is and how she makes him feel for pages and pages!
So, I bet you're thinking I must have hated this one. Well, I didn't. At the beginning I was having the hardest time stifling giggles at the writing. It was written in a way that had me hearing William Shatner narrating it. Oh, it was priceless. Then the whole love/lust "inexplicably drawn to each other" at first sight stuff happened and my laughter was silenced. So, about a hundred and fifty pages into it I must have subconsciously embraced my inner teenager trekkie because I read the rest of the books in one sitting and found myself getting into it. So, yeah, it was predictable, and laughable and sickeningly romantic but I liked it. Weird huh?
None of the characters bugged or interested me. I wasn't drawn one way or the other. I would have liked to have gotten to know Catherine and Az better and Xander did give me the creeps but other than that...nothing. See?! Isn't it weird that I actually enjoyed the book?
Would I recommend it?
(Twilight Zone music) Yeah, yeah I would. (shakes head)
