Tour and Review: Dragon King (Dark Kings #6.25) by Donna Grant

I reviewed Dragon King, a Dark Kings novella, by Donna Grant as part of the Dragon King Review and Excerpt Tour run by Inkslinger PR. I also have a couple teasers to share, so stay tuned!

Title: Dragon King
Author: Donna Grant
My rating: 3.7 hearts
Genre: Paranormal, Romance
Publication date: August 25th, 2015
Publisher: Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated
Summary: A Woman on a Mission

Grace Clark has always done things safe. She's never colored outside of the law, but she has a book due and has found the perfect spot to break through her writer's block. Or so she thinks. Right up until Arian suddenly appears and tries to force her away from the mountain. Unaware of the war she just stumbled into, Grace doesn't just discover the perfect place to write, she finds Arian—the most gorgeous, enticing, mysterious man she's ever met.

A King with a Purpose

Arian is a Dragon King who has slept away centuries in his cave. Recently woken, he's about to leave his mountain to join his brethren in a war when he's alerted that someone has crossed onto Dreagan. He's ready to fight . . . until he sees the woman. She's innocent and mortal—and she sets his blood aflame. He recognizes the danger approaching her just as the dragon within him demands he claim her for his own... (summary from Goodreads)

My thoughts: Dragon King is about Arian and Grace. Grace goes to Scotland to find inspiration for her new novel, and find Arian. Arian is mysterious, and naked. Grace gets stuck in his mountain because of a storm, and they start to get to know each other.

   Grace is an author. She’s late with her new book, so she goes to Scotland, where her book takes place, to find inspiration again. Grace is terrified of storms, because a lot of bad things that happened to her during storms. She easily trusts people.
   Arian just woke up after sleeping for six hundred years, and finds Grace in his cave. He’s very suspicious of her, and tries to figure out whether or not she’s working with the Dragon Kings’ enemies. He is very protective.
   Dragon King is good enough. It’s well-written, it has nice enough characters and a good plot. I think everything happened pretty quickly, which I guess is necessary in a novella, but I don’t like that. I want it to take time to get to know the characters, because then it’s easier to really get them. But everything between Grace and Arian happened really quickly. This is a usual problem with novellas; everything’s too quick and I just can’t bring myself to really care about the characters enough to really enjoy reading.
   The biggest problem was that I didn’t get invested. Sure, I wanted to know what happened, if Grace and Arian would end up together, but it wasn’t the kind of book that made me giggle hysterically, cry floods, and have major fangirl attacks. I mean, usually, I’m an emotional mess while I read, and that makes the book better, because it means I’m really invested in the characters, that I really care about what happens to them, but this didn’t happen this time.
   It could get a little boring at times, but it was otherwise a great read, and I’d definitely recommend it.
