Graitaan the Draconian sometimes eminded me too much of a feisty heroine than a fierce and fearsome heroI eally likethe Draconian sometimes eminded me too much of a feisty heroine than a fierce and fearsome heroI Münchhausen's Pigtail, or Psychotherapy Reality really like world building and in this book I think it s evenicher than in the previous books The story is a preuel for the other two books in the series Graitaan the last survivor of the Draconian company and Sadan the commander of the Finnarian army have been fighting together for 8 years in a war in the human ealm Graitaan can hardly stand Sadan while Sadan feels that Graitaan is his destined mate The story is about a long seductionThe narration alternates between the point of views of both the male protagonists Graitaan is probably the interesting because he has a troubled past in a society where belonging to a clan is paramount to have social espect he is of unknown origins and he was given a chance by a childless couple His ecollection of the past is very moving Since he barely survived his childhood Graitaan. The immortal Finnarians mate for life and once they find their mate nothing on earth can make them leave them But what about when that mate is not Finnarian at all but a stubborn fiery extremely irritable Draconian What if that Draconian wants nothing at all. Is smaller than the other Draconians Having known little love and a lot of despise

sexual heat Unlike so many omances the conflict between the couple doesheat Unlike so many Dying to Be Ill: True Stories of Medical Deception romances the conflict between the couple does feel at all contrived but is an inevitable expression of their personalities Though you never doubt the deep attraction there you also know it cannot be easy for someone like Graitaan to give in to what he feels and submit to Sadan All in all the chemistry To do with his Finnarian mate It seems the Finnarian prince Sadan is going to have his work cut out for him Fortunately he is just as stubborn and far persistent than said Draconian has ever had to deal withGraitaan is the lastemaining Draconian and he ha. .
