    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Dragon Claimed is another of the 1001 Dark Nights novellas It follows Cin ed He is a recently awoken Dragon King I will admit Even with the pronunciation spelled out for me I still had a hard time remembering that his name was pronounced like kinney My mind could not compute with what I was seeing on the page I laughed at myself every tim I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Dragon Claimed is another of the 1001 Dark Nights novellas It follows Cin ed He is a recently awoken Dragon King I will admit Even with the pronunciation spelled out for me I still had a hard time remembering that his name was pronounced like kinney My mind could not compute with what I was seeing on the page I laughed at myself every time I caught myself trying to call him something else.Cin ed feels a pull to Gemma right from seeing a picture of her as a child He doesn t understand the pull, but he knows it has something to do with the current fight the Kings are in What isconvenient is that she is living in the little town just outside Draegan.I think Gemma subconsciously moves around alot because she fears she is being watched She was severely introverted and hates to leave her house Gemma has some pretty horrifying history and you can t blame her for just wanting to be away from people But who could resist Cin ed He understood her feelings like no one else ever had The love story and the adventure were well balanced We get to see further into the overall arc of the Dragon Kings and how the Others fit in with their desire to kill them The fae assassin in Dragon Claimed has me confused because I really thought she wanted an alliance with the Kings She is very powerful, but to everyone s surprise, Gemma has a little something that can help with that Surprise even to herself You get to see Gemma really grow and come out of her shell, and Cin ed is a big part of that.I would not miss one of these novellas They can be read as standalone, but honestly I think readers of the series do not want to miss any of the new revelations we get Dragon Claimed packed everything I love about a Dark Kings book into a novella and I truly enjoyed the readExcerptGemma She glanced in the direction that her dog had run She hated storms Her parents and Kyle knew that Why hadn t they helped her Anger seethed within her They hadn t helped because they wanted to leave Daisy behind Well, Daisy was hers, and if she had to leave her friends and her home, she wasn t leaving her dog Gemma She ignored both her parents, who were now shouting her name as she raced after Daisy If she had to carry the forty pound dog to the boat, then that s what she d do Just as soon as she found Daisy Another flash of lightning bathed the land in light, giving her just a glimpse of the dog as she headed toward the house Gemma ran as fast as her seven year old legs would carry her She reached the house and Daisy Hey, girl, she said to the terrified dog It s going to be all right It took her four tries before she was able to lift the dog She shook badly, but at least she wasn t trying to get free Gemma knew her parents were going to be furious with her She didn t know why they were sneaking away in the middle of the night in a storm, but the fear in her father s voice and her mother s face let her know that the questions would have to wait In less than two hours, they had packed up all they could and put it on the boat her father owned She d asked where they were headed, but her parents hadn t answered and her brother had shot her an irritated look Once she got on the boat with Daisy, she hoped someone would tell her something She hated not knowing what was going on Kyle didn t care He always said that their parents would tell them when they needed to know Gemma stumbled and fell to her knees She pitched forward so that she had to release Daisy in order to catch herself, but she managed to keep a tight hold of the leash and pull the dog back to her Daisy seemed to like being held, so she didn t put up a fight I m coming Gemma shouted, hoping her family could hear her She couldn t see the dock through the driving rain and dark Which was odd There was supposed to be a light on the dock She knew the way to the water, so she hadn t gone the wrong way Butwhy wasn t the light on

    So, I stumbled over his name, and mispronounced it again and again, until page 34 when he told Gemma that his name Cinaed was pronounced Kinnay Really I was totally lost on that and I hated to keep saying his name wrong for so long I wonder how many readers had that same problem.BUT, I think this was my favorite Dragon Kings novella It left you in suspense as to who Gemma saw when she was 7 years old, when her parents and brother disappeared, and how she hid from the world as she grew up, un So, I stumbled over his name, and mispronounced it again and again, until page 34 when he told Gemma that his name Cinaed was pronounced Kinnay Really I was totally lost on that and I hated to keep saying his name wrong for so long I wonder how many readers had that same problem.BUT, I think this was my favorite Dragon Kings novella It left you in suspense as to who Gemma saw when she was 7 years old, when her parents and brother disappeared, and how she hid from the world as she grew up, until she met Cinaed It was a great story.There was explicit sex in this story and the F bomb was used 1 time

    There is just about nothing I lovethan a Dark Kings story, my investment into this series is with my whole heart While I always want a full length novella, because come onthese Dragons each deserve their story told in ALL detail, I love these novellas too because I know that they give us a glimpse of new Dragons and they advanced the story little by little They are the little snippets that tie me over until the next full length story and I have to say thank you to 1,001 Dark Nights fo There is just about nothing I lovethan a Dark Kings story, my investment into this series is with my whole heart While I always want a full length novella, because come onthese Dragons each deserve their story told in ALL detail, I love these novellas too because I know that they give us a glimpse of new Dragons and they advanced the story little by little They are the little snippets that tie me over until the next full length story and I have to say thank you to 1,001 Dark Nights for that because I am not sure that theses novellas would have come about with you them Dragon Claimed is the story of Gemma and Cin ed, pronounced Kenny and also the story of a littleinsight into someone else As always I can t talk too much about what happens because it will spoil the read for others, but if you have been a long time reader of this series, you want to make sure this one is in your hands It s these books that give little pieces that make the bigger books come together in the end I really enjoyed this couples relationship, the fact that for Cin ed there was a connection before he ever even truly met Gemma and Gemma s backstory, sigh It s funny because typically it is the Dragon King who s back story gets to me, but this book it was all Gemma Heck this whole book was just all Gemma, she was the true star in this one, the Dragon King taking a bit of a backseat I am really to see her in future stories and her interactions with a few other people, who shall remain un named for now, ha and those scenes.they just make you hate that character a little bitWhen the day comes for that character to wrap up their story it will be a grand one, I can t wait, except that will likely bring us to the end and I am so not ready for that I want all the current secrets revealed but then I just want new secrets, ha Dragon Claimed is classic Donna Grant, hot and steamy, intriguing, swoon worthy, secretive, and dramatic, both in story and in description One of the only things I would have likedof isCon andinteraction between Gemma and the rest of the Kings and Mates, though that would lead to a full length book I suppose, which is basically what I always want, ha So get this book if you are a fan of the series, it is a must read I will say that I think this is one where yes, you can read it as a standalone but you will enjoy it evenif you are reading it as part of the series If you do read it as a standalone a little bit may feel confusing for you but it s still going to be a great read and I bet when you re done you head back to the very first Dark King book HAPPY READING
