Dragon Actually

Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken

Publisher: Zebra

September 2008

ISBN: 978-1-4201-0373-1

Pages: 336

Annwyl the Bloody has a better chance of making a man run the other way than getting one that would seriously be interested in her. After decapitating legions of her brother’s ruthless men it is hard for men to see her as anything but the bloody solider she has become since the rebellion against her brother has started. She has always had to fight to survive and has never really known any other way of life. When she meets Fearghus she feels safe for the very first time in her life.

Fearghus the Destroyer is not a typical man. In fact he is not a man at all. He is really a shape shifting dragon that is deadly in his own right. He has made it a point to stay to himself and ignore the way of the humans that live around him. That all changes when he meets Annwyl for the very first time. Here is a woman that isn’t the least bit afraid of him. Fearghus finds Annwyl fascinating, the only being around that has ever had that affect on him.

Now that Fearghus and Annwyl have met things are definitely changing. Fearghus is determined to keep Annwyl no matter what but in order to do that he is going to have to help her defeat her brother. Annwyl has the desire to defeat her brother but not enough skill to overcome her brother. Fearghus is going to have to help Annwyl get the skill needed to defeat her brother once and for all or else he will lose her completely and she will end up losing her life.

This is a great story with a lot of sarcastic wit that will have the reader snickering all the way through the book until the very end. When Fearghus’s family gets involved with his wooing of Annwyl anything and everything is bound to happen that makes this a fun book to read as Fearghus has to fight his inclination to kill his family just to get some peace in his life. This is one story that the reader will definitely find worth the time reading.

I give this one 5 red roses
