Release Day 4 STAR Review! Highland Dragon Rebel (Dawn of the Highland Dragon #2) Isabel Cooper
Highland Dragon Rebel (Dawn of the Highland Dragon) - Isabel Cooper

 

 

Madoc of Avandos is on a journey to cement alliances. Targeted by an assassin, he needs a companion who can fight. When dragon shifter Moiread MacAlasdair returns from war, he knows she's the best woman for the job. Duty and political strength compel Moiread to agree, but when they cross into the otherworld and Madoc's life is threatened, Moiread jumps into protection mode-and will do whatever it takes to keep the man of her dreams alive.

 

 

Moiread and Madoc are brought to brilliant life as readers join them on their quest to protect the future of Wales. Along the way the couple enjoy a light hearted romance that they both seem to believe can’t really go any further due to some pretty interesting concerns which keeps readers wondering until the very end.

 

Their romance as well as their quest is fraught with danger and suspense as assassins seem to pop up everywhere with the determination to keep them from accomplishing their goal. The thrilling uncertainty certainly keeps readers on the edge of their seat as magic and dragons add wonder and excitement for readers and characters alike.

 

The story is set in long ago Scotland, England and Wales as well as another magical realm which adds spice and beauty to the journey for the readers and the pace is a nice even one that keeps readers glued to the pages. I have to say that keeping the romance on such an intriguing last minute timeline kept the “happily ever after” in question throughout and then there was a spectacular final battle between Madoc, Moiread and the assassin to liven things up while adding an inspired and surprising twist that I didn’t see coming.

 

I haven’t read the first book in the Dawn of the Highland Dragon series yet, but I am definitely going to be remedying that before the release of Highland Dragon Master in March and not just because I love dragon shifters. Isabel Cooper used well written descriptions to paint vibrant settings and brilliant characters that I just fell in love with so I can’t wait to visit the Highland Dragons once again.

 

 

 

Highland Dragon Rebel is the 2nd book in the Dawn of the Highland Dragon series.

 

Highland Dragon Master will be released on March 6, 2018.

Legend claims
When Scotland fell to English rule
The Highland dragons took a vow:
Freedom at any price.


The war may be over, but so long as English magic controls the Highlands, not even a dragon laird can keep his clan safe. What Cathal MacAlasdair needs is a warrior fierce enough to risk everything, yet gifted enough to outwit an enemy more monster than man.

What he needs is Sophia.

Alchemist Sophia Metzger traveled to Loch Arach in search of knowledge. She never dreamed she'd learn to do battle, ride through the stars on the back of a dragon, or catch the eye of a Highland laird. But as her quest turns to sizzling chemistry and inescapable danger, she'll soon discover the thrill of being caught in a dragon's claws.

 

 

 

 

 

I thought it was really refreshing getting a historical paranormal rather than a futuristic or current day one I especially love the Highland Dragon. Yum.

Two bumps for the author both for her writing style and author voice, I highly enjoyed it.

I favored the character and plot development which was long in detail however considering its the first book starting a new series for the Highland Dragons I thought it was a great start.

I think I really needed something fresh in this paranormal romance genre that didn't feel as if it was cut and pasted fill in the blank formula that many books these days feel they've been doing. I really needed this book at this time. Thanks Miss Cooper for a great read.

 

 

 

Until next time book lovers...

Review: Legend of the Highland Dragon (Highland Dragons #1) by Isabel Cooper
Legend of the Highland Dragon - Isabel Cooper

Legend of the Highland Dragon

 

Highland Dragons #1

Genre: Paranormal Romance – Historical Romance – Dragons – Magic

Published December 3rd 2013 by Sourcebooks Casablanca

Source: Library
 
 

The MacAlasdairs are not like other men. 

 

Descendants of an ancient alliance, they live for centuries, shifting between human and dragon forms. Some wander the earth; some keep to their lands in Scotland. And Stephen MacAlasdair, the newest lord of the family, must go to London to settle his father’s business affairs. He brings an object of great power and greater darkness. He finds an enemy from his past, whose wrath is still living and deadly. And he meets an ally he’d never have expected.

 

1894 London, doesn’t provide an easy life for women of the lower class, but Mina Seymour has managed to work herself up to a position as the secretary of a famous scholar. When a tall, dark Scottish stranger demands to see her employer, Mina is irritated; when MacAlasdair’s departure leaves the professor worried, she’s suspicious. Determined to figure out the situation, she investigates further – and finds a world and a man she could never have imagined.

~ 3 Legend of the Highland Dragon Stars ~

 

Legend of the Highland Dragon is book one in the Highland Dragon series by Isabel Cooper. I am a lover of dragons and when I find a book with dragons featured, I almost always pick it up. 

 

I enjoyed Legend of the Highland Dragon. It takes place in London around the end of the 1800’s. It’s a slower type of read then what I am use too. Things in the story move along at a very steady pace with the romance blooming slowly and most of the action and love scene happening in the last 25% of the book. The premise was interesting with dragons and magic at the forefront, but it was lacking in world building. The characters Stephan and Mina did not disappoint. I liked Mina’s courage, quick thinking, and that she takes magic and dragons quit well for a women of that time period. I also liked Stephan as the Dragon. He’s a couple centuries old, sexy, and plays his part well.

 

Legend of the Highland Dragon did not blow me away, but it has not deterred me from continuing the series. For the most part I have a hard time reading historical romances and books that are a slower type of read, but I still enjoyed this novel. 

 

If you enjoy historical romance, a slow burning romance, mystery, demons, a villain, and magic then give Legend of the Highland Dragon a try.

I enjoyed Legend of the Highland Dragon. It's a slower type of read then I am use too. Things in the story move along at an even pace, the romance blooms slowly, with most of the action happening in the last 25% of the book. Review to come.
