When Prince Leon disappears and his people are unable to find him, they turn to the dragons for help. Nyle is the unlucky dragon tasked with finding the missing prince, a duty he dreads as it forces him into the confounding human world and away from his collection of pretties.

Locating a missing prince should be a simple matter, but if Nyle has learned anything about humans since being forced out among them it’s that they needlessly complicate everything. When he finally locates the errant prince, however, what Nyle finds is a treasure worth all the complications—worth protecting at all costs.

Excerpt

Nyle is the youngest dragon, only 300 years old.  He has been tasked to find the King’s youngest son but when he does he finds things are not as he was told.  Leon is the King’s youngest.  He is mysteriously hiding out in the red light district of the city.  He is living as a whore but why and what will Nyle do when he finds Leon?

The plot is fun and interesting.  There is “insta-love” between the two main characters.  The characters are fun.  I loved all the different dragons and the werewolves.  I liked the story a lot.  It is a refreshing read that is light and entertaining.  The problems with the book though were with the writing.  It wasn’t descriptive of the environment.  There were missing explanations that while at times really simple left me a little confused.  Also the writing was a bit simplistic.  I think that could easily improve as the author continues to write and publish.

Overall I think those that enjoy a light, fun read may enjoy this book.  As it is the first in the series I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the series is like.
