I’m slowly catching up on Lindsay Buroker’s Dragon Blood series and book 3, Blood Charged helped me fully appreciate and feel hooked on the series!
So, not going to lie, I have had a bit of a hard time “getting into” the Dragon Blood series. I think part of it is that I miss Emperor’s Edge SO much and all of those characters. I also feel like having the two romances in book 1 and 2 of Dragon Blood felt a bit rushed to me after the slow building romances of the EE series. I don’t feel as attached to these romantic relationships because of that and it makes me wish there had been more time to build their connections and unresolved tensions, etc. That being said, these characters are DEFINITELY growing on me and I am particularly partial to Ridge and Tolemek. Jaxi is just THUH BOMBDIGGITY. This book felt a bit slow to me in the beginning (which is why I took it to 4 stars instead of 5), but really picked up later on and we were introduced more to Apex and Therrick (two characters I can’t WAIT to read more about). We also got to see a bit more information and hints about dragons appearing later in the series. She definitely got me hooked by the end and I woke up at 6:30 this morning to finish reading the book before I headed to work. At work on my fifteen minute break, I started the next book, Patterns in the Dark and am really looking forward to seeing where the characters and this series goes! ONWARD WE GO!
