SYNOPSIS

Life is not going well for archaeologist Sam Bellamy. She’s stuck in the middle of the ocean on a salvage boat with people who want her dead. It wasn’t her gift for being able to sense objects of power that got her here, rather her need to make a secret society called the Knights of the Dragon pay for killing her mentor. Sam doesn’t believe in dragons, but the Knights do, and if she can get one of the sacred artifacts they’re searching for away from them, she’ll consider it payback.

Ezra Easton is content to run his marine salvage company and live alone on his private island. He may be a four-thousand-year-old water drakon, but he’s civilized enough to know just because he pulls an injured woman from the ocean, doesn’t mean he gets to keep her…
When she wakes up, she has a few tall tales to share, and it seems the Knights are after her. But this drakon won’t give up his treasure.

REVIEW

I've been dying to get my hands on Ezra's book ever since I finished Drakon's Prey in April!And I'm really glad I didn't have to wait too long!
This is the third book in the Blood of the Drakon series and it features Ezra, the third of the four brothers who is a water drakon.Both Darius and Tarrant have found their mates and Ezra is starting to feel the pangs of loneliness.In the previous books we only get to see glimpses of the quiet Ezra which had me really curious to learn more about him.And I got my fill in this one!

Sam is an archaeologist with a gift for finding artifacts.But that's not the only reason she's on a salvage boat working for the Knights.She wants revenge since they killed her mentor.And if being able to just steal away atleast one of the artifacts that they're searching for is something she can do, she's ready to do it.But she's surrounded by danger and she knows it.

After taking the artifact,getting shot and almost drowning she's saved by a man who seems to have appeared out of nowhere.But there is this undeniable connection between them..

Ezra doesn't know why he saved Sam, but he knows he isn't ready to let her go just yet.She maybe working for the Knights, but her stories say otherwise.And the drakon within him knows that she is his.But will they be able to survive the storm that is heading their way?

The relationship between Ezra and Sam developed quite quickly,even faster than the ones in the previous books.But it was done in a completely believable manner!I could feel the connection and the chemistry between them and also could understand the reasoning behind the decisions that they made.Ezra and Sam were great main characters!But I think Sam was my favorite.The way she was level headed,independent but not hasty and, fiercely protective made me love her just as much as Ezra did.Ezra was so amazing!The drakon brothers have such different personalities and temperaments, but have a connection and few similarities too! 

The action and the way the author built up and kept expanding the plot had me on the edge of my seat!By the end, I was left feeling even more curious than I was before!
And the next book is going to be Nic's!!Can I just say how excited I am for it!It's so sad to see him all alone when all his brothers have been paired up!But he'll be meeting his girl soon!And I think I might have a few guesses on who it could be!But who knows I could be completely wrong as well!

EXCERPT


“What did this Gervais Rames want?”

She leaned her head on his shoulder. “He told me about the Knights and what they did. I mean, the idea of drinking dragon blood when the creatures don’t even exist is really out there. He told me how they killed people like Brian all the time in their quest for power and eternal life.” She tipped back her head and peered up at him. “I gotta tell you, I almost called the cops right then and there. I mean, there’s no such thing as dragons and eternal life. That’s all fantasy. Right?”

“Right,” Ezra agreed. No need to upset her by informing her she was sitting in the arms of a water drakon who’d lived for thousands of years. And by the way, if she drank his blood on a regular basis, she’d be cured of any disease and live indefinitely. Nope, best to keep his mouth shut. His dragon grumbled inside him but didn’t give him too much grief.

“But the fact remains that these people think it’s real. It’s like the alchemists centuries ago trying to turn base metal into gold. People do kill in the pursuit of arcane and forbidden knowledge. I’ve made it my life’s work to study such things. I know what different cultures have done since the dawn of time, the atrocities they’ve committed in pursuit of their cause.”

Ezra was well aware of the lengths humans would go to in order to try to live forever or appease their gods, whichever ones they happened to be worshipping depending on the time in history.
“So you believe the society is real, but not the creatures they’re searching for?”

“Exactly?”

“So how did this Rames know about them?”

She rubbed her hands up and down her arms. Ezra reached out and snagged her coffee. She gave him a grateful smile and she took a large swallow. “Thanks.”

“Rames?” he reminded her, eager to finish this conversation so she could rest.

“This is where the story takes an even crazier turn.”

He gave her a small smile. “I think I’m past being surprised.”

“It seems that Rames was part of another secret society, only this one works to oppose the Knights of the Dragon. Their mandate is to protect all dragons. They call themselves the Dragon Guard.”

He’d told her he was past being surprised, but he’d lied. She’d managed to totally stun him.
