After Dark Review of The Dragon Who Loved Me by G.A. Aiken

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)

Yummmmy! Love love love the cover! As a confessed in the last After Dark review I have this thing for back and shoulders, and this cover really plays into that!

Synopsis: "I was raised for battle. And as the first daughter of a warrior family, I've earned my reputation the hard way. Yet now I fight alongside uncivilized male Northland dragons who think a female is only good for breeding and waiting back home in the cave. But it's the foolish and foolhardy who would try to stop me, Rhona the Fearless, from doing what I do best—destroying the enemies of my kind.

So the smartest thing wily barbarian Vigholf the Abhorrent can do for me is stay out of my way as we risk all on a deadly mission in enemy territory. I don't care if he's fascinated by me, even though he is as attractive as he is resourceful. He's having far too much fun putting me in difficult situations and testing my sense of duty to the limit. And I'm going to enjoy challenging his insufferable confidence, outwitting his schemes, and making him surrender in the wildest ways. . ."

My Rating: I really enjoyed this one, a great follow up to the Last Dragon Standing. It wasn't exactly what I expected, I love the fact that the some time had passed between the last book and this one and that we didn't have to read through a five year war before getting to this book. I adore the characters in this one, Vigholf and Rhona are such a match. I adore the children, they crack me up and I can't wait to read more about them as the grow up. I feel like Izzy's character took a little bit of a hit in this one, she is just becoming too similar to Annwyl. The story line was great, had you gasping at times in horror and other times in relief. I really can't wait to see what book comes next!

My Rating: This as a Four Paw book for me. I loved the pace, it really picked up from the previous book in the series.


  1. I love this book. Rhona and Vigholf were great. I agree that Izzy is a lot like Annwyl.

  2. I really did love Rhona and Vigholf, though my favorite is still Dagmar. I really hope Izzy doesn't end up too much like Annwyl, but I can't wait to see whats next.
