I have two version's of this review. The first one is more spoilers the next one is less spoilers, so if you want less just keep scrolling unitl you hit less spoilers.

This was a excellent read! Hatfield has a wonderful talent that shows bright in this highly intense action packed sexy book. The talent she has is to take you in depth in the characters in a short length of time and add so many twist and turns you can’t seem to turn the pages fast enough to learn what’s happening next. In this book you get tons of intense action, torture, fighting, (dragons against vampires), betrayal, HOT Sex, and a huge cliffhanger that really makes you want the next book or maybe its two books yep, that’s it two books. I would like to give a warning to those that are of the faint of heart ,there is a lot of torture in the first of the book for both Declan and Alexia, so be prepared it starts right off. With everything going on in this book I never felt lost or confused on who is who or what is what. The way Meagan writes it, its very easy to read and understand.

What would you do if the woman that compels you with hot passion is your enemy? The very one that could have killed or had a hand in killing of your parents, then she is the one that captures you and beats you then throws you in a dungeon. Is she the brutal monster or someone else? If not, is there anyway he can keep her without his family killing her.
They both also have another problem, she is a vampire and his family won’t accept her unless she is a dragon, now how are they going to be able to jump through that hoop.

Now for Spoilers! If you want to know more.
There is so much in this story I don’t want to give out to much, but yet I want to touch on what I enjoyed most, the only thing is I have a problem with that because I enjoyed it all. There’s a war going on between the vampires and the Dragons. Alexia (vampire) is soon to be queen, her mother (named Catija, vampire) is being controlled by the evil general ( named Lotharios, vampire). Alexia’s mother and the evil general kills the King and Queen of the dragons, well lets just say the dragon King and Queen was pretty much tortured to death by them. Now Alexia needs a crystal to have power, so this is were we get into the action, Alexia knows Declan (dragon) has it so she captures him and tortues him to tell her where the crystal is, when he doesn’t comply he is thrown in the dungeon after beaten then beaten some more, later she comes to see him to see if she can get more out of him, but what she finds is an attraction between each other. What Alexia doesn’t know is Declan is the dragon’s King and Queens son. From there Alexia finds things are not as they seem in the vampire world and she now has to help Declan escape while she herself takes beating’s from Lotharios.

I know this is one big spoiler here, I just cant resist. After Declan and Alexia escape Declan is still in week state, but when Alexia is thrown off a cliff he jumps and changes into a dragon in mid flight avoiding the pain and the hard rain trying to get her, This is one intense moment where you really can’t turn the pages fast enough to see how he gets her and makes it back up the high cliff. If I don’t stop now I will giveaway everything and I don’t want to do that. I have to let you know some of this I just wrote will have a few changes as you read the book, I can’t give everything out LOL you’ll also find quite a few more surprise’s yourself.

I do believe this book will hit this top of my favorites of this year right now it’s tied with the top one so far, that’s how much I enjoyed this story. I would recommend this book to anyone that reads PRN reader even some UF readers that enjoy a little sex would like this book.

Less spoilers

This was a excellent read! I would recommend to anyone. Hatfield has a wonderful talent that shows bright in this highly intense action packed sexy book. The talent she has is to take you in depth in the characters in a short length of time and add so many twist and turns you can’t seem to turn the pages fast enough to learn what’s happening next. In this book you get tons of intense action, torture, fighting, (dragons against vampires), betrayal, HOT Sex, and a huge cliffhanger that really makes you want the next book in had to start it. I would like to give a warning to those there is a lot of torture so be prepared it starts right off at begging. There is a lot going in this book, I have to say I never felt lost or confused on who is who or what is what. The way Meagan writes it, its very easy to read and understand.

There is a war going on between the Dragons and the Vampires. They both want a crystal. One has it and his name is, Declan (dragon), Alexia (vampire) needs it, so she captures Declan and torture’s him but he doesn’t talk. In the dungeon they both find a passion for each other that wont let up. They both escape the evil vampire general. Now Alexia is with Declan and has to brave the dragon layer and they don’t want her. The only why Alexia and Declan can make it together is if she is a dragon this is an intense adventure to see how these to make it happen. You also read about some more characters on both sides, so I know I will be looking out for more books.

  4. One of the real strengths of the Abby Sinclair series is the fresh and innovative mythology and worldbuilding. The supernatural species may be familiar (fae, angels, unicorns etc.), but the rules for this world are anything but. Creative, yes, but unfortunately, it's a little confusing too.
