The Dragon Mistress: Book 1

(2 customer reviews)


They’re the last five dragons in existence.
To survive, they must form soul-bonds with five noble humans.
Too bad they’re stuck with us instead.

The angry drunk. The shameless womanizer. The coward who ran away and got his comrades killed. The ice-cold assassin for hire. And me, the foreign girl with abandonment issues as deep and wide as the Southern Sea.

My four knights in tarnished armor are all that stand between the dragons and a corrupt ruler intent on hunting them to extinction. A ruler, I might add, whom I managed to personally offend by escaping his harem of unwilling concubines. So… yeah. Let’s just say that so far, this experience hasn’t lived up to my childhood dreams of travel to exotic faraway lands.

I left home in search of adventure. Instead, I stumbled into the middle of a desperate struggle for survival.

Five people. Five mythical beasts.
If we manage to get through this mess, it’s going to be a miracle.

  1. Rosemary HUGHES

    Rescued from an hot and scorching death, after being robbed and left to die, our young heroine tags along with the group that had come across her.
    This group of mercenaries were to aid her in her future troubles.
    There is a hot erotic scene, as well as, a cliffhanger ending.

    Masterful POV. Strong, distinctive Characters.
    I’ve not listened to a lot of fantasy books. I chose this book because I’m editing the text of a fantasy book for an author. I wanted to see how R.A. Steffan–well-known and well-respected author–dealt with some of the elements my author is grappling with in his narrative. I was examining how the author deals with point of view (POV) character and how that plays out in the action scenes.
    In this book Steffan carefully kept within Frella’s perspective—this entire book is told from her POV as she encounters each of the other characters). I was impressed by the author’s skill and the narrator’s presentation of the POV of Frella throughout this book.
    On my second listen to the book, I picked up on Frella’s wanderlust and her interest in the supposedly extinct dragons as her reason for traveling to this foreign land—a motivation I had missed on my first listen.
    Narrator Gwendolyn Druyor was stellar in creating each character and distinctive voices for each. Easy to listen to. Just right depicting the feelings of Frella in each scene.
