Just Okay.

Not my favorite of the series so far but it was good enough. Some parts were uninteresting to me. The begging I liked and in about the last half or so of the book I found myself just skimming pages. If I wasn't over halfway through the series I don't think I'd keep reading.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

OK, the dragons are pretty cool, especially since they're not your typical knight-fighting Western dragons. They're serpentine and colorful and exotic with devious personalities, and can even take human form. Almost as cool: Kelsey and her tigers travel to each of their domains on a luxurious yacht. Between each death-defying adventure there's time to rest in a bedroom suite and soak in the Jacuzzi.

But those yachting breaks also allow for lots of lovers quarrels and jealous brother quarrels and Kelsey's wishy-washy emotional rollercoaster rides. It all pretends that readers hadn't been there, done that in the 900 pages combined of the first two books. Now you can add 500+ more pages to that. The time would have been much better spent fighting more cool dragons.
