Lili and Lee have come out with the 3rd book in their Draekon spinoff, with Draekon Pirate. These books are the ones about the original Draekons. They don’t mate in pairs, they are one on one. This is the story of Fourth and Diana.
So, Diana, and her friend Lisa, were two of the human women who had been stolen away. But instead of being tortured like all the other women we’ve seen so far, Diana and Lisa have actually been thriving. That’s because they were saved by some pirates. In the months since they were rescued, Diana has worked herself up to second in command of the ship, and Lisa is part of the bridge crew. They are happy, and they have discovered a family.
Fourth, like most of his brothers, has been sent to rescue the human women that were kidnapped. So, he pulls up to this pirate ship, disables it, walks on to it, and almost gets hit by a thrown knife that he barely catches. That’s when he finds out that the women really don’t want to leave. They are perfectly happy.
BTW? Diana is really good at throwing knives. Like scary good. She grew up in the backwoods, way off the grid. So far off the grid that those prepper nutcases are like dayum. Her father taught her how to hunt and survive, which has really helped her.
Anyway, so Fourth, who has renamed himself Mirak, is fascinated by Diana. There’s just something about her that makes him want to know more about her. And it didn’t hurt that she tried to knife him the first time she met him. And Diana can’t get Mirak out of her mind either. (I originally had mound there, which works too.)
I think that Diana is a lot of fun. There’s just something about her that I really like. She has her own serious issues, mostly spawning from the way that she grew up and the way that the adults in her family treated her, but she’s also incredibly competent, smart, strategic, and just fierce. I think that she really blossomed on the pirate ship. It really was the perfect thing for her.
Mirak really needed to figure out who he was after waking back up. I think that he was really kind of lost after waking back up and was a little bit scared of everything, even if he wasn’t going to admit to being scared of anything. Because, you know, big scary dragon.
OMG, the horridness that came out of Mirak’s mouth. Diana should’ve shoved a knife in there. DEEP.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
