Dragons Among Them, Kyra Jacobs

Dragons Among Them,  Kyra Jacobs

Genre:  Romance, Sci-fi and Fantasy

Kyra’s a new-to-me author so I wasn’t sure what to expect from this, but it sounded fun, set in UK – and as a UK resident that’s always fun, and Dragons – well, “real” fantasy creatures there!

Sadly though I read it all and enjoyed parts it wasn’t really a series for me. It felt very like a YA read but with some spicy, sensual sex added. I do read some YA, some transcend age groupings but this just felt very simplistic to me, with really only a Will the Prince get the Girl plot.

I wanted more depth, more complex plots but its wasn’t to be. That’s fine though – we all want different things and just because I didn’t enjoy this book doesn’t mean its not a good read – I can see on goodreads its got a slew of five star reviews already, so clearly others love it and I’m pleased for them.

I didn’t feel the Passion – lust yes, but I need to feel more than that. I wanted more from the backgrounds of each character, more understanding of how and why they reacted as they did. I didn’t feel Addie would just give up everything for love just like that, its a totally different world and a huge risk, so I needed a more secure connection between them.

Its one I thought I’d love but sadly just an OK, forgettable read for me.

Stars: Two and a half to three, not quite good, more just OK for me. Remember though its five star for many others,its a personal taste issue not a reflection of quality.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
