Title: Dragon Bound (Elder Races #1)
Author: Thea Harrison
Release Date/Publisher: May 3rd 2011 by Berkley Sensation
Finished: October 5th 2013
Half-human and half-Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful—and passionate—of the Elder Races.
As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they’ve ignited in each other.
Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave—although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul.
What I thought:
Suggested 18+ for sex scenes
This book was recommended to me when I asked for a more mature series that was also really good. And boy was it good!
I loved the fact that these otherwise mystical kinds of creatures who would normally be in hiding, were known by all and lived their everyday lives with humans. I also loved that out main man was a Dragon, because dragons are awesome! He kept being described as muscly and manly and tough, which is probably a good thing considering what he can change into. It was kind of hard to imagine him being 7 foot at times though.
Pia was an interesting girl. She is half-Wyr, and holding back on what exactly that Wyr part is (which you do find out in this book!). She was always taught to hide from others and just get by. but after stealing something from Dragos, he claims her and their attraction starts. Then everything guard she has up around her starts to slip. She is so fascinated by him, even though he seems confusing at times to her and vice-versa. He’s definitely not like a modern guy who understands relationships and love, but his protectiveness and the way he seems to change around her was super cute.
If you’re looking for a great book that has romance, mythical creatures and an interesting take on a modern world with magic, then check this one out! I’m so excited to start reading the rest of the series!
