Our ship crashed months ago and those of us left are struggling to survive the boiling heat in barbaric living conditions. The only reason we're not all dead is one of my friends got knocked up by a native alien and he lets us live in his ruined city. We should be grateful but a lot of the humans hate the dragons and the girls who mate with them.This is book 3/13 in total. I enjoyed the story telling as I had with the first two books in the series I'd read but found that I don't have the urge to continue. The first three books cover the three roommates the original story sort of starts with. After that, I think its generally just going to start picking through the female population the author has named and matching them with a Dragon, though there is only one named dragon left as more haven't arrived by the end of book three.
The natives are huge, seven foot tall dragon-men with wings and tails and scales. Surly and overly protective, who needs that? Not me. Alien baby fever is the new in thing, but I'm not falling for the hype. I've always survived being alone and I don't need anyone to change that. Try telling that to Shidan, the most annoyingly persistent alien male around.
Thanks to the primitive nature of the destroyed planet, we have no idea what's happening when things go wrong with my friend's pregnancy. I'm sure I can salvage something from our crashed ship that will help, but to get there I'll have to leave the city's protection and go out in the sweltering heat where everything wants to kill me. The only way I'll survive is if Shidan comes too and he's made it clear he wants only one thing. Love.
Amara's story is a little different from the first two as it is the only one to feature proper flashbacks to life on the ship as a way to explain her surly attitude and reluctance to fall into the arms of the Dragon that is chasing her affection. It turned out to be a very typical story of a woman breaking into a man's world and constantly feeling the need to prove that she deserves to be there, that she just as tough, and she doesn't need to be cared for or protected.
Shidan seems to be very much younger than the other dragon's we've met thus far. He doesn't really remember anything before the war and he seems confused more often than not about how he is supposed to act or what he is supposed to do with regards to many things, not just trying to win Amara's affections. Mostly he seemed like a love sick teen boy if I'm honest.
I give it
