The Dragon Who Loved Me
Rhona the Fearless is a fierce Southland Cadwaladr she-dragon and one of the best soldiers fighting in the queen’s army. She’s earned her reputation through years of loyal service, killing any enemy she fights. But now she’s fighting alongside Northland dragons who think females have no place on the battlefield. None is more annoying than Vigholf the Abhorrent, who has made it his mission to look after Rhona, even if she doesn’t need it. Vigholf is fascinated by Rhona and has been attracted to her from the beginning. He’ll fight beside her and bide his time until she finally gives in.
From the very beginning, it is apparent that this is a book full of sneaky plots and all out battles, with the relationships between the dragons and their mates remaining the focus. Vigholf and Rhona are wonderfully suited for each other and their skills in battle complement each other nicely. Vigholf’s focus on the positive is exactly what Rhona needs to lighten her attitude a little bit since she’s usually so focused on taking care of her siblings and younger cousins. They also keep each other on their toes the whole time they’re together, especially after Rhona figures out that Vigholf’s constant presence is because he likes her and not just to annoy her. Their dialogue with each other is always entertaining, even when it’s about Vigholf always being hungry.
Though Vigholf and Rhona are the central characters in this book, the other main characters from G.A. Aiken’s other dragon series books also play a large role in the overall story. The characters are witty and as sharp-tongued as can be expected from G.A. Aiken, and the story moves along at a very nice pace. This book can definitely be read by itself even though it’s part of a series, but anyone who reads this first will probably want to go and read the other books in the series as well just because the story and the characters are so much fun to read.
