Living with Humans is never easy. They don't do scent exchange, they don't lick palms, and they have this thing called "personal space".
As the first and only Kin Agent for the Center of Folk and Kin Relations, Haley Night's job is to help keep the public safe by helping keep the peace. But after an interview with serial man-eater Niles Fury goes terribly wrong, Haley finds herself face-to-face with a plot to destroy her species--genocide. With the help from her best friend and partner Farley, she sets off on a race against time to stop a madman's plot to destroy Kin. It's a journey that will put to the test everything she thought she knew: Kin have no God, survive at all costs, and love is only a Human emotion.
Welcome to Atlanta, Georgia… City of Dragons…
Hello? All you people who are aching for something new in the paranormal romance genre? Yes, you. This is a paranormal romance novel without a single vampire or werewolf. Adrienne Wilder has created a world where Kin and people interact. Kin? Dragons. Dragons! Who would have thought. I have read other books where dragons can use their magic to take on human form, so the concept wasn't completely foreign to me, but they were just a small portion of the story. I know that there are plenty of fantasy books about dragons, or dragon riders, where people in the past or present and their dragons go on a quest. This is not a fantasy novel. This is a book set in modern times, but the modern times in the book includes dragons living among humans.
Blood Bonds had aspects of a medical, suspense thriller. It was a journey with a paranormal creature with a new mythology. It was a love story. Too many times, I've seen books with this many things going on, become conflicted between everything the author is trying do in a story. Adrienne Wilder pulled it off seamlessly. The only bad thing I can think of to say is that I wish she had put more elements of Atlanta into the story, but that may be just because I would recognize the landmarks.
I loved this book. I can't wait to read the next one.
