Overview

"A hot, hot series." --Library Journal

"Sizzling." --RT Book Reviews

Braith of the Darkness likes going through life unnoticed. Not an easy task for a She-dragon of royal descent. But the evil plots of her father are turning her quiet, boring life upside down, and she has now become the enemy of the most vicious queen her kind has ever known. But for once, Braith won't have to fight alone. Not when the warrior dragon of her dreams is willing to risk everything to save her neck.

Addolgar the Cheerful wishes he could say he's helping the pretty royal strictly for honorable reasons--but he'd be lying. It's not his fault, though! He didn't tell Braith of the Darkness to have the most delicious tail he's ever seen! Yet before Addolgar can get his very strong claws on that tail, heads are going to roll. Just hopefully not theirs. . .

    Always love the Dragon Kin series: A TALE OF TWO DRAGONS is anot

    Always love the Dragon Kin series: A TALE OF TWO DRAGONS is another prequel novella from G.A.Aiken and her Dragon Kin series. This is Addolgar and Braith’s storyline. Addolgar is an easy going and ‘cheerful’ dragon; one of Dragon Queen Addiena’s warriors; son of Aileen the Wicked and Shalin the Innocent; and one of Bercelak’s elder brothers.  You remember Bercelak?  Father of Fearghus, Briec, Gwenvael, Keita, Eibhear? And yes, we meet a young Bercelak as he once again encounters his future mate the princess Rhiannon.
    Braith of the Darkness is a reluctant royal whose mother and father never bonded.  Her father’s lineage is all about the sons while her mother’s is all about the daughters.  Believing herself unattractive and unloved following the death of her mother, Braith has remained in the back ground until now.  Ordered by her father and Queen Addiena to accompany the Queen’s daughter, Braith is surprised to learn that Addolgar the Cheerful will be one of the escorts.  Braith has always had a bit of a crush on Addolgar and in his presence, Braith becomes shy and withdrawn. But the queen’s daughter has other plans and Braith will find herself Addiena’s target when her father sets out to betray the throne.
    In true Aiken fashion, the storyline is awash in humor, sarcasm, witty rhetoric and the distinctive voice of the Cadwaladr Clan as they push and shove their way into each other’s heart and our own.  And we learn just how far Aileen the Wicked’s slutty ways have travelled when Braith’s own family is well connected and known to the elder Cadwaladr dragon. 
    Aiken’s style of writing is a true testament of her ability to weave humor and sarcasm into a storyline without sounding snarky or trying too hard. The way she is able to pull the reader into the storyline with the colorful characters and sibling rivalry between dragons allows the reader to experience the emotional highs and lows, as well as entertaining us as we travel the skies with the Cadwaladr Clan and the dragons of Aiken’s Dragon Kin series.

    I loved it.

    It was very entertaining. Most of the characters were daft idiots, but that's part of what makes this book so good. I thought it was really funny. I would recommend this to people looking for laughter and a little bit of romance mixed with bloody fights.

    love ga akins

    more of the crazy dragon family. really enjoy the fact that the family is so large it gives us a strong future to the series. the fact that we get to go back and forth from the young ones romances to parent and aunts and uncles starting their families is not confusing. it gives us a chance to understand the dynamics of the relationships with out cheating you of the emotional highs and lows for loving and hating the same characters (most of them you love in spite of themselves)

    Fun, sexy and sassy. Worth your time and money.

    A quick fun sexy read. If you are a fan of Shelly Laurenston (yes I know this is a pen name for her), Molly Harper or Mary Janice Davidson, you'll enjoy this novella.
