Hello friends! Today I have my book review of Reign of Dragons, by Olivia Ash.
Reign of Dragons is the first book in the Dragon Dojo Brotherhood series.
Trigger / Content Warnings: Attempted Murder, Assassination, Blood, Sex Scenes
My sister and I are human orphans raised by the world’s best assassin, taught to steal and kill our way through the dragonlands under her watchful eye. Grown men fear us, and no one knows we’re coming until it’s too late to run.
Irena and I—we’re good. The best. In a dog-eat-dragon kind of world, we have to be. But someone betrayed us. Someone we trusted with our lives.
Irena is missing. My mentor is gone. And as for me… the man responsible for this mess thought he killed me. He kicked me into a pit, and he left me to die.
But I don’t give up that easy.
In the darkness, facing death itself, I fused with dragons. I had no choice. This is ancient magic, and dangerous people want it. They want me, dead or alive, and they’ll start a war if that’s what it takes to control me.
The magic I discovered—the magic these brutal people want—it’s mine, plain and simple. No one can take it from me. And I’m coming back from the dead.
For blood. For vengeance.
Reign of Dragons is a full-length novel with a badass heroine, a riveting storyline, and an alternative relationship dynamic. Get ready for a heart-pounding story filled with a dragon shifter romance unlike anything you’ve read before.
Buckle in for heart-pounding action, breathtaking magic, deadly assassins, four drop-dead gorgeous leading men, lots of toned muscles, and most importantly—a young woman’s journey of justice, self-discovery, and freedom.
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
Reign of Dragons has a great start to this fast moving story. I loved that I was sucked into the story, and I loved the attitude that our main character exhibits.
I liked that a big part of the plot happened not long after Reign of Dragons starts. That made the story that much more interesting to read. What a way to reign me in! Man…After that I couldn’t stop reading even if I wanted to.
Assassin’s, dragons and ancient magic. What more could I want in a novel? Oh, action. And there was quite a bit of it in this first book!
Needless to say, buying Reign of Dragons was well worth the buy! There weren’t any parts of the story that I didn’t particularly disagree with, which is a huge bonus for me. I adored reading Reign of Dragons through and through.
I love the world that Ash has created. Seriously. I was transported into the story and didn’t stop reading until the very last page. No joke. I read this 700 page book in one sitting.
By the end of Reign of Dragons I liked where the story had progressed, and where it might end up progressing in the novels following this one.. I like that almost everything ended well. I especially like how even though Rory’s story is faaaar from over, there was still a happy ending in this first book.
I give Reign of Dragons, 4 stars.
