Overview

Griffen already has his hands full running his gambling operation in New Orleans and dealing with his dragon heritage. Now his pregnant sister, Valerie, is missing—possibly kidnapped—and his uncle, Malcolm McCandles, has flown into town for a mysterious meeting with a powerful man who’s been dead for almost eight decades.

And Griffen certainly hasn’t got the time to protect Councilwoman Penny Dunbar, a dragon who’s running for governor of Louisiana—if malign forces don’t take her out first.

Robert Asprin's Dragons Run (Griffen McCandles Series #4) 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

The change of authors simply doesn't work. In the first three books Aspirin establishes the primary characters as forces of nature, strong and independent, if somewhat inexperienced. Lynn Nye changes all of that. Griffin now acts more like a weak willed teenage boy, instead of a young man establishing his territory. In th first couple of books it is established that Val will be able to detect and strongly resist glamour or mind control after being controlledby her baby daddy. That premise appears to have been chucked right out of the door. All in all, the fourth book of the dragon series simply does not measure upto, nor synch with the flavor of the first three books.
