The Princess's Dragon Lord - Mandy Rosko

This was a different kinda story then what I've normally read. I enjoyed this story.
Diana is a woman that now lives in this century. She does't know of any previous lives that she has lived. While enbarking on a hike in the woods of a park to paint her " perfect scene" she hears a voice telling her to run. Diana doesn't know if her imagination is running away with her or not, so she runs. Dianna comes to in a cave and in someone's bed. She doesn't know what happened nor who's bed she is in till her Husband comes to her.
Azoth is a man/dragon that see's his long lost wife in his bed. He is overjoyed at once again being with Diana until he realizes that Diana doesn't know who he is. Azoth has been sent to his cave as punishment for killing all of Diana's family including Diana!
As Diana struggles to remember Azoth and the past, visions come to her to help her remember. Finally the mystery is solved in all its wonder.
Very interesting story. I'd like to take the time and find more of Mandy's stories.

I really enjoy the story concept, however I've found the book difficult to read. It is written in a personal conversational tone with no filters. Some of the thoughts are not specified as thoughts, but as something we need to decipher. Also, there are 'vulgarities' where they do not enhance the story, add to identifying a character's traits or are otherwise useful. In some areas they actually detract from the story significantly. I don't want to give away much of the story as I believe the author has a great idea, however there are some time line issues within memories that seem to blur as well. It is possible I missed details due to the writing style, but what I was able to identify did appear to blur and blend in some areas.

The author has a fabulous idea with this story. She knows where she wants it to go and I believe with what I've seen within it, if she tweaks style just slightly, she'll have a true masterpiece. I'm considering purchasing this book direct from the distributor to see if it is updated so I am able to read this polished into the masterpiece I know is waiting to happen.

    This was really a short novella and not a book. (Just over 200 p

    This was really a short novella and not a book. (Just over 200 pages.) This story had so much potential but ended up lacking in so many ways. First of all, there were so many errors it was almost like reading something that had been poorly translated to English by a terrible computer program. Then, it felt like it was being written by a man trying to write from a feminine perspective and just not getting it. Which was such a shame because I loved the plot of the story, the characters, the whole IDEA of the book. It just really needs a lot more work before it's really novel-worthy. I just kept trying to imagine how the story would have went if someone like P.C. Cast, Christine Feehan, or Kresley Cole would have written it. I would love to see this story get revamped with more details, more information and chapters on the surrounding characters, sub-plots, etc. It could be a truly amazing book. I wanted chapters from Azoth's point of view, the Dragon's pov, the villain's pov, etc.

    Contains some sex and vulgarity

    Story is interesting but would be better without the author's use of the old cliche of trying to shock the reader by using profanity e.g. f.../c..../ . Both characters are portrayed as innocents and there is no need for the vulgarity even though used sparingly. The author could have developed the characters and explained the dragon/man myth further to make it much more enjoyable..

    Poorly written

    I am only half way through this book an do not know if I can finish it. The story line is is a wonderful concept, one that I was very excited to read. But the writing style feels as if it was written be a high school student. The descriptions of charcters, landscape, thoughts ect. are very lacking in detail. I highly doubt a man of his time frame would use the F word to describe sex. I have been reading all forms of romance novels for about 12 years and the way this book is written is just dissapointing. I truly hope the author has the chance to rewrite this book and give it the attention to detail that it deserves.

    Very good idea but author needs to take her time and develope her story. Drop the profanity and sex, add more about the dragon, stir in some magical characters and she would have a wonderful young adult story.
    With the right direction the author could have a very entertaining series that this grandmother would also enjoy reading.

    This book was a little difficult to get involved with

    In my opinion this book was hard to get involved with the characters. I found myself putting this back on the nook shelf and then reading another book and going back to finish it.
