Review: About a Dragon by G.A. Aiken

The Blurb

For Nolwenn witch Talaith, a bad day begins with being dragged from bed by an angry mob intent on her crispy end and culminates in rescue by-wait for it-a silver-maned dragon. Existence as a hated outcast is nothing new for a woman with such powerful secrets. The dragon, though? A tad unusual. This one has a human form to die for, and knows it. According to dragon law, Talaith is now his property, for pleasure... or otherwise. But if Lord Arrogance thinks she's the kind of damsel to acquiesce without a word, he's in for a surprise...

Is the woman never silent? Briec the Mighty knew the moment he laid eyes on Talaith that she would be his, but he'd counted on tongue-lashings of an altogether different sort. It's embarrassing, really, that it isn't this outspoken female's magicks that have the realm's greatest dragon in her thrall. No, Briec has been spellbound by something altogether different-and if he doesn't tread carefully, what he doesn't know about human women could well be the undoing of his entire race... 

My Review
This story was amazing. G.A Aiken is a fabulous writer. I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard while reading a book. Arrogant Briec was brought low by Chatty Talaith. And the surprise Ms. Aiken added to the story just blew me away. I had no idea it was coming, but I loved it.

I found the way Ms. Aiken brought in the other characters and interwove them into the story to be intriguing. Mixing the familiar with the new.  If you're searching for a tame book, then About a Dragon is not for you. It's not a ‘sweet’ book by any stretch of the imagination. If you want a story that will keep you up at night reading, then get this book. You’ll end up reading the whole series, like I’m in the process of doing. (And wanting a dragon of your very own.)

I give this book five out of five dagger shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased this book from Amazon.
