Library JournalIn D’Arc’s “Dragon Knights” series (Maiden Flight), the dragons and their knights fight the evil Skithdron while they live in lairs that are scattered around the empire. Every dragon knight “family” is a ménage: two dragons, two male knights, and one female as the destined mate of both knights. Here, the woman is a journeywoman healer who stops to help an injured dragon and decides to have a “one-knight” fling with the dragon’s knight. She wakes in the morning to discover she’s acquired a matched set of knights—as soon as she can get herself to accept that her life has undergone a drastic change.
Verdict If the dragon parts of this story sound slightly familiar, that’s because life in the lair will remind readers of Anne McCaffrey’s “Dragonriders of Pern.” But D’Arc’s series is definitely intended for adult readers and is a fantastic excuse to read about hot ménage sex with destined mates as the reason that strangers fall into insta-love. And it works! The print titles are so popular that Samhain is rereleasing the entire series in ebook format, with short novels like The Dragon Healer sandwiched between the original works. Fantasy romance readers will lap up this one (and the rest of the series).—Marlene Harris, Seattle P.L.
