Overview

Winter in Mystery, Alaska just got a whole lot hotter. Dragon shifters, lions, and tigers oh my!

An overwhelming need to get away from life--from grief--sent Naomi Parker on a trek through Alaska. Even though she was expecting to photograph some unique wildlife, she was NOT expecting a dragon. They don't exist, right? Wrong. And a dragon who turns into a human? Even more unlikely.

A hot dragon prince... yeah, she's totally hallucinating. And when he won't leave her side, and their chemistry is off the charts, suddenly, it's a whole-new-world of fantasy and excitement, until it threatens to cost her everything...including her life.

Col has one mission: to kill the dragons who murdered the royal house of Li'Vhram--his family. But he wasn't expecting to find his mate in the process. When a cute, curvy woman needs rescuing from the dragons he's hunting, his senses go on high alert. She's his mate. He's sure. And he'll do anything to make her his.

Knock Down Dragon Out is the first book in the new Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska series. It's a full-length, standalone fantasy paranormal dragon-shifter romance story featuring a strong human female and an alpha male dragon prince from another world with a propensity for protecting and pleasuring his mate. Happily-ever-after and more guaranteed!

Knock Down Dragon Out is the first book in the new series. This is a paranormal fantasy story. We have a dragon shifter, Col, from another world who comes through a portal to escape his dying planet. He is also chasing the dragons responsible for the death of his family. The last thing he needs is to find his mate, Namoi. But her soul is calling him and he has to help her. All he wants is revenge and Naomi is having trouble believing what she is seeing. And the attraction and connection is strong. She can't figure out why she is ready to just give herself to him. I found this story fast paced and I love the setting of Alaska. It had some exciting fight scenes and the chemistry was very hot! The story building was good. There are other shifters who came through the portal and excited to read their stories too.

Starting Fresh..... What a wonderful new take on the shifter world, I am going to totally love this series....Imagine starting from scratch like a newborn, only fully grown quite a few hundred years too, no money no cloths in a different world. Dragon shifter Col had to go through the portal to earth after the traitors murdered his whole family, his whole tribe, they were all caught unawares while trying to escape the nightmare that had befallen the planet, he was the only one to escape with life. As he seeks revenge on th 2 traitors he is rewarded by fate when he sees a woman unconscious, but with the glow of his fated mate....He must choose to either chase after the traitors, or save what fate has gifted him. He is in a world he does not know, all white skies and ground, things he has never seen, he only knows he must save her and then seek his revenge. Naomi wakes up with no recollection of who she is, or where..All she knows is that her savior is like something out of Game of Thrones, all hunk and gorgeous and she wants him, but the injury to her head has her hallucinating because he turns into a dragon! When she awakens she remembers everything, but dang she had the best sex of her life with a dragonman and she wants more???? They meet other type of shifter that were fortunate, or not to come through the portal, they were enemies on their planet, but will Tor , Kann, Saul and Col realize that they must put their lifelong differences aside if they are to survive in this world?

Cute and sexy dragon shifter romance. This one gets right to the action with a dragon shifter battle, and it also gets hot and heavy rather quick. The romance is sweet, and Col and Naomi have great chemistry. I love mate bonds! Loved the Alaskan setting; it made for some interesting scenarios, and I love a bit of that we're snowed in scenario. Col's backstory is interesting and different, and he's a sweetie, but also kicks butt. Entertaining, exciting read, and I'm excited to read more!

A portal has opened from Reylea to earth and two murdering traitors dove through followed by Colin of the house Li'Vhram. He seeks thier death for the murder of his family and every man, woman and child in his clan. In the mist of the tracking and fighting he finds his mate. A human women who is injured by the traitors. Naomi Parks is a wild life photographer taking photos in Alaska when 2 dragons attack her . Wow this was a great story ! I loved the action and the characters. Krystal Shannan created a fantastic new series. It has drama, action, mystery, intrigue, betrayal, spice and so much more. I can't wait for the next book to come out to see what the author has planed! I didn't want this story to end and I couldn't put it down. Really a fun read. Voluntarily reviewed a copy and I honestly loved it.

WOW!! From the first page I was drawn into the story. Col is a dragon shifter from another planet. His whole family have been killed and he is after the two other dragons who were involved. He follows them through a portal to Earth. As he is searching for them he hears a scream and goes to investigate. He sees the two dragons near a female. He attacks them and as he battle them he notices the female lighting up and realizes she is his mate and her soul calls to him. The other two dragons leave and he goes to help his mate. Naomi awakens in a cabin not knowing who she is and instead of freaking out about being with a male who can become a dragon, she asks questions. Col and Naomi start a life that is most interesting and dangerous at times. Fantastic story! Love the characters and the way the story was told.

rince Col Li'Vhram is a Dragon Shifter from the tropical planet Reylea. The planet is being destroyed by erupting volcanoes and portals have been opened to escape. Col flies through after two dragons - Jaha and his sister Sefa from another dragon tribe, have killed Col's whole family and fled through the portal. They wind up in cold Alaska. Naomi Parker is in Alaska to photograph the Alaskan wildlife. She's there to get over her grief of the loss of her fiancé two years ago. She is accosted by two dragons - Jaha & Sefa. She is hurt and is saved by a huge black dragon, Col. Dragons - is she hallucinating?? Nope, they are real. He sees her and she's giving off a glow which means one thing - Mate! Col finds an abandoned cabin and takes care of her, but he hasn't forgotten the two dragons. He still intends to get his revenge! Three strangers come to the cabin. They are also refugees from Reylea. Two are hugs lions - Kann & Saul and one tiger - Tor. On Reylea they would be enemies but here they become friends and a close family looking out for each other. I so loved this exciting, edge-of-your-seat story that has a nice surprise. Naomi is a strong and sassy woman. Col is a strong, possessive Dragon protective of her. Has suspense, action and hot scorching sex. I hope the author writes stories for the other three awesome shifters. Truly an amazing book and highly recommend it.

I have loved all of Ms. Shannon's books and now I am in love with the start of this new series! Col had to flee his homeland and takes a portal to earth. He had no idea where he was going at the time. All he knew was that he needed to catch two dragons that killed his entire family while they were all getting ready to leave his home. He just happens to run into his mate? Yeah and she's human. Loved their story and can't wait to see what happens next! Thanks to the author for providing me a copy of this book. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book with no compensation.

A female attacked not by one but two dragons? A third dragon saying he is her mate? This is a fantastic new series by this author and I found myself laughing so hard in parts and screaming in other parts. Col and others of his kind or at least from his world have now landed in none other than Frozen, Snowy, Alaska and it's anything but a good ride for this grumpy, sexy, brooding Dragon who seeks nothing but revenge for his family. Enter Naomi a human female on a mission for work to photograph the wildlife. She should be safe yes? She took survival classes on being out in the frozen tundra... Well think again deary... Loved this story and can not wait to see who is next....

I love this new series! I LOVE Krystal's work, big fan! And I'm not surprised that she brought another outstanding book for us all to enjoy! This is a fast paced, steamy, OMG I can't take my eyes away read! I was hooked from the first page! Naomi is a feisty female with a sad past. Her inner thoughts are funny as hell and she's spunky. Col, a dragon shifter from another realm. With revenge in his heart, also a prince of sorts from his tribe. Their interaction is crazy, sexy and fun. The story is well written, the characters are well put together and the plot is amazeballs!!!! This was a great start to a new series and I'm looking forward to the next book!

Different and enjoyable. I thoroughly enjoyed this different shifter style fun and quirky story. The sadness permeating this story at the loss of the Reylea homeworld and Naomi’s fiancée is tempered by the good story and very likeable characters. Hope there are more good shifters that made it and that the bad wolves get dealt with. Loved the main characters and cannot wait to read about the three cat shifters finding mates too. This is my honest review of this book.

He is a prince and a dragon shifter. They come to earth after their world is destroyed. Some traitors murdered his family and he is hell bent on getting rid of them. They are attacking a human woman and he has to rescue her too. She is his soulmate but he refuses to acknowledge it because he wants the traitors. It is exciting, fun, suspenseful, emotional and so much more. I recommend i t. I was given a review copy and voluntarily review it.

I loved this book. It is very well written, has an entertaining plot, likable characters, and a few unique twists. This steamy and romantic dragon shifter/alien romance introduces us to Naomi and Col. The attraction, chemistry and heat between these fated mates is so hot and the emotional connection between them beautiful and touching. Both these characters have issues and baggage that must be dealt with. A engaging storyline snares your interest with a great blend of romance, drama, action, sweetness, and humor. With underlying themes of family being more than the people you grew up with, revenge/vengeance, the pain of loss, and being willing to risk your heart again. Also introduces several other shifters (a tiger & two lions) that you will want to have their own stories.

Hot shifter romance from one of my favorite authors. Can't wait to read more in this new series.

KNOCK DOWN DRAGON OUT leans a bit more towards the world of fantasy romance than standard paranormal romance than we are used to from Krystal Shannan, while it does feature shifters, and the author establishes her world as the story progresses. The concept of soulmate is a crucial element of shifter romances, and while I know how it works, I thought the bonding was far too quick: Col – the dragon shifter – and Naomi Parker – a human wildlife photographer – are head over heels in love almost instantaneously. I thought their obsession to mate became tiresome: they constantly want/need sex giving way to lengthy and numerous sex scenes, which I felt it contributed to the unevenness of the book. For example, we are catapulted in the thick of the action right at the beginning, then lust/sex/love happens then and there. KNOCK DOWN DRAGON OUT is book 1 in the new Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska series, and it unmistakably feels like it, but Ms. Shannan does a solid job in introducing the characters and her world, without bogging down the story, and introducing characters, which will certainly be featured in upcoming books. Col landed in Alaska from Reyla through a portal, as did other shifters – notably members of the Lion Tribe, who sound positively scrumptious. But in KNOCK DOWN DRAGON OUT, something doesn’t quite work, and I can’t exactly put my finger on it; maybe it was something to do with how it’s structured, I don’t know. As expected, the writing is young, and modern, and the action sequences are nothing short of spectacular: Krystal Shannan knows how to create an impression of movement like few authors can. I was also quite surprised at how often I chuckled; Naomi is quite the character: she doesn’t understand why she feels the way she does towards Col, but it feels so good, she just goes with the flow, and it’s fine. Her inner monologues and lines of dialogues are often hilarious, as is Col’s bewilderment at trying to get used to life on Earth, familiarise himself with everyday conveniences, such as technology and even clothes and houses; all those are foreign concepts to him which leave him baffled and the reader amused..

Knock Down Dragon Out is the first book in the new series, Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska, by Krystal Shannan. What a great start to this new series this was. It was surprisingly intense, hot as heck, and I really enjoyed the characters. Col is a dragon shifter whose home was on Reylea. His planet was becoming overcome by erupting volcanoes. Their magic benders had managed to find a similar climate on Earth and had just created a portal for their escape. But before they could make it to the portal, Col’s family was attacked by another family of dragons. Col chased two of the murderers through the portal and found himself in a freezing cold climate which he would later find out was Alaska. His own world was all jungle and desert so this new world was completely foreign to him. Col’s only thought was to get revenge for his murdered family by killing the two dragons that escaped before him. When he found them, though, he found that they had injured a human woman who lay bleeding on the snow. A strange glow was emanating from the woman and his dragon immediately stood up and took notice. There is only one reason a woman would glow, she was his mate. He had to ignore the call to her, he had to avenge his family’s deaths. But the call was too strong. She was injured. She needed him. Naomi Parker has spent the last two years grieving. She is a photographer and as a last ditch effort to get herself out of her depression, she took an assignment in Alaska photographing wild life. She was not prepared, though, for what she saw when she was in the woods taking pictures. She thought she saw dragons that could change into humans! This can’t be possible. After Col saves Naomi and finds shelter for them, the mating call is too strong for them to deny. Fate had chosen this woman for Col and there was a white-hot need for him to make her his. And let me tell you ladies, that these two most definitely wasted no time in closing the deal. They could not get enough of each other, the newness of finding their mate creating a constant need. In Col’s mind, though, he is continually battling the urge to find and kill his enemy but his dragon also couldn’t bear to be away from his new mate. “This woman was his new home.” On Col’s home planet the different shifter clans were not friendly. Very few were able to make it through the portal before their planet was overcome. When Naomi is in danger, Col finds an unexpected alliance with three of the other shifters that got through, two lions and a tiger. Since they all have lost everything that was dear to them, they are able to come together and create a new family of sorts, a sort of brotherhood. They need each other to try to learn to live in this new world, and they need Naomi to teach them the ways of her world. I really enjoyed this. I love the world Krystal has created here. What I really loved was the way the different shifters came together to create a new type of family, the way they accepted each other. As I said before, Col and Naomi together were scorching! But Naomi was a surprisingly strong woman. Even with all she had been through, she was strong and independent. Col was all alpha and possessive with her and it was so cute but she held her own. This was sexy and sassy and pretty darn suspenseful. I can’t wait to see what Krystal Shannan has in store for us next!
