"A Tale of Two Dragons" By: G.A. Aiken Review


A Tale Of Two Dragons (Dragon Kin, #0.2)

A Tale of Two Dragons
By: G.A. Aiken
Synopsis
Braith of the Darkness likes going through life unnoticed. Not an easy task for a She-dragon of royal descent. But the evil plots of her father are turning her quiet, boring life upside down, and she has now become the enemy of the most vicious queen her kind has ever known. But for once, Braith won't have to fight alone. Not when the warrior dragon of her dreams is willing to risk everything to save her neck. Addolgar the Cheerful wishes he could say he’s helping the pretty royal strictly for honorable reasons - but he'd be lying. It’s not his fault, though! He didn't tell Braith of the Darkness to have the most delicious tail he’s ever seen! Yet before Addolgar can get his very strong claws on that tail, heads are going to roll. Just hopefully not theirs…

My Thoughts
      Ugh. I’ve been a fan of G.A. Aiken since her first dragon book, but they have steadily been going downhill and I’ve had my fill. What began as a humorous and romantic series has turned into just a cluster of unfunny, uninteresting characters in unappealing situations.
     I’m not even going to go into what the story is about because I don’t care. I literally didn’t like the characters, and previous characters that I had fallen in love with are just dumb now...which is heartbreaking. The story was asinine, not making sense half the time and the romance was pretty much nonexistent. The characters were more interested in being slapstick than actually having a story, which broke my heart.
    I can’t believe this story was actually approved and I’m sad that such a promising series has failed so sadly. G.A. Aiken used to be one of those authors I recommended to people who enjoyed a great paranormal romance or a little humor but no longer.
