A dragon is about to find out what happens when a cat discovers his cave of shiny treasures.
After nine years, Pib is finally free from his contract with the newly wed prince. Slipping out in the middle of the night to avoid getting stuck in another contract, Pib shifts into his cat and makes his way home to the little village he foolishly left, hoping his best friend Wil still lives there.
Dray is bored. His services as a princess-guarding dragon are no longer needed and even his gold and jewels are unable to cheer him up. His mood changes quickly when he catches someone in his treasure cave, and it starts a series of events that change his life forever.
When the two finally meet, sparks fly, but Dray will have to move quickly if he’s to save his cat after Pib gets kidnapped.
So, I love dragons. Always have, always will, so when I get a chance to read a dragon shifter AND m/m story, I jump for joy.
This story didn’t disappoint. It’s a novella, so you should keep that in mind as you read because you may find yourself with questions about the world building and all that, but if you just let the story take you on an adventure and don’t worry about the details you’ll enjoy it.
The connections and coincidences in the story are pretty thin and seem to come out of nowhere, but like I said, if you just sit back and enjoy it, it’s fine.
The characters are funny. I mean, a dragon who falls asleep on guard duty? Hilarious. Pib is loyal to a fault and I love it.
Did I mention there is a sequel possibly someday in the works? ‘Cause I love that idea.
Bottom Line: It is enjoyable, it leaves you looking forward to more… but it also leaves you with some questions about this world they all live in.
