The Shadow of Tiamat THE DRAGON'S BLOOD CHRONICLES BOOK I by Sean T. Poindexter

My Rating: Four Stars

My review of this novel is slightly mixed. Lots of graphic violence and lots of explicit sex in this one so definitely not one for the kiddies.

On the one hand you have a lovely CPS worker who is dating a sexy good-guy dragon, dragon bad-guys who want to annihilate the human race, and a couple of bad vampires thrown into the mix with lots of action, intrigue and romance. What's not to like? And I really did like this book overall and am left really wanting to know more about what Meg is. I would love to read the sequel.

But here's what I didn't like. Near the beginning where Megan and Garrett have their first sexual weekend together, I got the feeling that the author couldn't decide if he was writing a fantasy novel or a FANTASY novel - if you get my drift. For a while it was reading like some hard-core porn. I'm not a prude and don't mind some good sex scenes in a novel, but this seemed pretty extreme to me.

If you can get past that sexually explicit bit and get into the meat of the story though, I think you'll really enjoy this book like I did. And if you like your books graphic when it comes to sex - well that's even more to love.
