Books: Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon by. Kerrelyn Sparks

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds traveling the vast universe! I am back and taking a short break from packing for my move to bring you a book review!

Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon by. Kerrelyn Sparks

Disclaimer: This review is based on thoughts and opinions of the lead writer of this blog. Please respect her thoughts on this book since they are based on honesty.

What is it about? In this book from the Novels of the Embraced series, we see Gwennor, an elven girl among the Embraced girls who lived on the Isle of Moon, she is a healer and gets whisked off to a land of dragons where she finds out about a curse that is plaguing the land. When she meets Cyllis Dravenco, a general and a prince, she was told to never trust a dragon until he came into her life but why does it feel so good to be around him then?

Silas felt that he can’t save the royal family he was supposed to protect throughout his life until he meets Gwennor and was revealed to be a healer. He asks her to help him in solving what has been plaguing the land and to see if the curse that is rumored to be true is in fact true. He and Gwennor work together to find the truth behind it and not only that fall for the elven girl which he is always warned to never to trust but ends up finding some truths about her and what she holds.

Thoughts: I thought I didn’t have the third book from this series until I realized I did after linking the last one, So I Married a Sorcerer in my last review. Thank you Amazon for helping me. So, I had to go through my vast shelf of books on Kindle and started reading. I liked this one the best because unlike the other two it did bring the action in right away. As in, dragon comes and steals Queen Luciana’s daughter and whisks her away and Gwennor ends up riding another dragon that came from the same land to save the queen’s daughter and lives there for a bit until they can take her back. While she’s there she finds out the queen in that land was not feeling well and things are coming up like there are hardly children in the country due to the curse, a plague has been causing problems, and people are afraid of dragons all over. I do like Gwennor as a character by the way during this story because she was very inquisitive and she was finding ways of figuring out the mystery behind the sickness, curse, and Silas himself which he kept on dropping hints about dating a dragon. Now I can see where the title came from since it does fit due to the rules he gave her.

What I also liked throughout the book is how we find out that Sorcha is related to Silas and some of the other characters which it looks like book four will be dealing with her since Luciana did see in the telling stones that she may be meeting someone that may be related to Gwennor which will make it interesting. I am hoping to read that one too since I already have read the first three and this series has gotten better all thanks to this book and hoping it continues into the next. I also admit I did download Sparks’ vampire series too since I liked the titles she has made for those books and thank you Good Reads for pointing them out to me. I can’t wait to see how these books are told and not only that what Sparks has for next since this is one fantasy series I definitely recommend. Especially when she weaves in some more modern speech into it and while reading this I kind of felt like I was reading a modern romantic comedy with medieval fantasy elements mixed within. Plus, it did have dragons which made it more interesting because we never thought these dragons could be telepathic and wondering if Sorcha has it too even though it was shown she was a little perplexed while Silas tried it on her. Let’s see what the next one holds!

Rating: 5 Star Paw Prints Out of 5! I feel this one was the best out of the three so far since knowing there is another soon to come. I felt like the story was better due to how it started off quick with a dragon taking a princess and Gwen is the savior since she did keep an eye on Luciana’s twins for three years from what this book told me. It did give the idea of the girl wondering why is she feeling towards the guy and then the guy wonders if the girl feels the same idea since you do Silas pretty much beating himself up for being a jerk and not only that he does have major pain when Gwennor did say she didn’t want to be with him and that was rule number two, “A dragon feels twice more than anyone!” Which you do see that in the book even towards the end which I don’t want to give too much away. I am hoping they catch the Chameleon soon because I feel like he is trying to do something huge and hoping that gets resolved towards the end, I wonder how the next one will incorporate him. 2019 bring on the next one!

That is about it for this review! Come back later for my Convention Spotlight on Ranger Stop 2018! Stay beautiful while traveling the universe!
