Overview

Daryk World, Book One

When Magonian archaeologist Ketera Aldrancos' father is imprisoned, she's determined to save him. Before she can do so, her ship is wrecked. Water laps at her, a man's strong arms surround her. His husky voice soothes her. Then she realizes she's on a foreign beach in the arms of a dreaded Dragonian. A man who looks nothing like the men she's known. His closeness, his touch sends waves of need through Ketera's core and shame runs through her. After all, passions are sinful.

Dane Charger, a Dragonian Daryk One, cradles the woman in his arms. He aches to introduce her to the headiest lovemaking imaginable. But his eyes flame red and a growl vibrates his throat when he realizes he'll need to protect her from marauding slave traders led by a vicious rogue-who just happens to also be his half brother.

Two people whose supercontinents are separated by ocean and two thousand years of prejudice and fear. Two people who may be the secret to saving a race from extinction.

A fantastic read! One of the best I have read. It can be read as a simple action hot sex romance or on a much deeper level. There is so much great character development, action, sex, romance. Kenra is from different continent where it is controlled and all kept in dark from truth. Dane is hot, honorable Dyrn One on other continent who finds her when she is swept ashore from a shipwreck. Dane was told about true mates from his father and fights the possibility. Dane struggles the idea she is his mate. He finally accepts but must convince her as she is struggling to get back to her continent to save her father and also accept the strong feelings stirred inside her for Dane. On her continent they are prohibited. She already knows many truths from her fathers archialogy discovery and their people have been kept in the dark and controlled. But it only is a small portion of knowledge to what Dane teaches her. This is a fantastc book. Very difficult to put down. Action is fast moving and I found myself not wanting to miss anything. I loved the depth of this book! So many metaphors to our own world. Slavery, truth, suppression, control by authority, prejudice...and much more. There is much sex in the book but it goes with the story line and I did not find it gratuitous. It is part of the awaking of truth in life. I also like some sex in my books. This was loving. Highly recommend!!! This is first book in series and can be a stand alone. This one was free but the next 3 are quite costly for ebooks. (most over $7) I would love to read the others, but have a hard time paying more than a paperback or less for an ebook file. I am sure this author and the stories are worth it - if they even come close to this one.

Dragon fodder or devil's concubine? Which would you choose? Life has dealt Ketera some hard blows. Her father's life hangs precariously by an ever thinning thread, she barely escapes drowning when her ship sinks, and now she's stuck on the barbaric continent of Dragonia where every creature, man or beast, either wants to kill her or force her into sexual slavery. Every creature save one-Dane Charger, a Daryk One who she quickly learns possesses the ability to turn everything she thought she knew about his continent upside down, and introduce her to the pleasures she's secretly yearned for, but never dared dream would come true. Dane's whole life has been spent protecting the innocent-an oath taken by all Daryk Ones. While some have gone rogue, choosing to follow his half-brother's crazed ideas about stealing women from their rival continent Magonia-Ketera's homeland-and forcing them into sexual slavery, he's remained true to his vows. He can't dispute that Draconia needs fertile females or that the people of both continents will ultimately perish if they don't come together, but he doesn't condone rape. From the moment he lays eyes on Ketera, his normal protective mode kicks into high-gear. Much as he fights against it, he soon realizes she's far more important to him than a means of repopulating his homeland. While I read books one and two of the Daryk World Series out of order, I have to say this was equally as enjoyable as book two. The author does an excellent job of bringing the characters from both stories together in critical junctures. Ms. Agnew has set things up nicely for book three and can't wait to dive in. The characters in this story are fully developed. I loved seeing the emotional struggles slowly resolve as the story progressed. It never felt rushed or lagged, but rather kept a nice even pace with enough action and excitement to keep me turning the pages. As in book two, the sex is blazing hot-as in, grab something cold to drink, you're gonna need it, hot. There were very few editing errors, mainly some missing words, but nothing that detracted from the story. I only picked up on one point-of-view violation, but it was minor and certainly didn't interrupt my reading other than I had to reread the paragraph to make sure I hadn't mistaken it. If there were more, they were so minute I didn't notice. Overall, I loved the story and can't wait to start the next installment. A warrior with a sense of honor, a maiden with a sense of duty, and enough excitement, peril, and lovemaking to keep your heart racing is what awaits you in Ms. Agnew's Daryk Hunter, Book One of her Daryk World Series. With its touching characters, this is one of those stories that stay with you long after you reach the end. Originally posted at Whipped Cream Reviews
