Review: Dragon Blood by Madelaine Montague

Dragon Blood by Madelaine Montague

Publisher: New Concepts Publishing
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Heat Rating: 3



They were the last of their kind--brothers born of the last dragon and doomed never to find mates of their own--not of their own kind, at any rate.

Yadkny’s Review

Marlee is focused and driven when it comes to her career in the FBI, but she may be a little too focused on the end result of catching the bad guys and not nearly enough on her surroundings. It isn’t until a training mission becomes deadly that she realizes this flaw. The bad guy in this case is a bear and it has decided to make Marlee its dinner.

Eli and John heard the woman scream and ran toward a scene that was complete carnage. They didn’t think she would live, but decided to try to help her anyway. Their healing technique involved tasting her blood and what they discovered after healing her was beyond what they thought possible.

Gabriel, Eli, John, Joshua, Aaron, and Luke are brothers all born to a dragon-shifter. The knowledge of their heritage however, died when their mother died, before she could show them what they could be. They know of the beast that lurks inside them, but the brother’s don’t know what it will take to set their inner dragon free or better yet who.

Who knows what you’ll find when you take that trip to a place that houses painful or repressed memories. Sometimes fear of the unknown stop us from making the trip, but in taking that journey you never know what you’ll find that just might heal some of the wounds. A lesson learned while reading this book. Marlee’s trip down repressed memory lane offers her some answers as to what happened in the woods when she was attacked, but the biggest gain was in finding something she never knew she wanted… love. As for the brothers, their journey in finding Marlee leads them to a hopeful future and back to the place of their birth where their mother died protecting them. The discovery made there gives them some of the answers they have been seeking for many years.

Madelaine Montague does a wonderful job portraying characters that are very emotionally real. Each have their own strengths, but also insecurities that they have to overcome. I appreciated that the reader is immediately swept into the story from the beginning as it should be. I am still very curious as to how the family dynamics of the household will play out, but with the background given, the author allows for the reader to make some of their own conclusions. Just a small warning that some readers may find a particular scene in the beginning of the book objectionable on the grounds of dubious consent. Interesting characters and an interesting dragon shifter concept kept my attention to the very last page. I’m excited to learn more about some of the other books this author has published.
