Review

FourStars

Drakon: Awakening is a joy to read. Funny and action-packed and perilous, with an underlying cozy, sweet love story.

Our hero Myra O’Connell speaks in Irish dialect, which is charming rather than annoying (Well done, Erik!). Quinn is the no-nonsense FBI agent we frequently encounter, excellently realized. They make a good pair, and the secondary characters are full of life, too.

Drakon excels at world-building. The concept is far-fetched, and yet rooted in enough story lore and real world consequences that it feels believable. I am not a fantasy fan, so I blush confessing, but  that only adds to the fun.

The villain is uncomplicatedly evil, but has a decent enough back story. I confess I had nightmares after finishing. How often does a book do that?

I knocked a star off for a strange obsession with boob-size in the text, which admittedly I don’t share, and for typos behind incidental. But those are minor quibbles.

I will definitely be reading the sequel!
