Review. Dragon Bound - Thea Harrison

Series: Elder Races 1
Genre: Paranormal romance
Pages: 312
Published: May 3rd 2011 Berkley

Half-human and half-wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful - and passionate - of the Elder races.

As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they've ignited in each other. Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave - although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul. 

My thoughts:
This is the start to a new paranormal series with mythical beings who walk the world side by side with humans.

The main character is Pia who is hired (well blackmailed) to steal something. She knows it's stupid but she does it anyway . So she is sure brave. I liked her because all she wanted was to keep her secrets. She is also halfwyr and I did figure out what she really was before it was told. Trust me, you will be amused in the end. Then we got Dragos, a powerful man and a more powerful wyr. He is a dragon, rich and yes of course he is a hunk too and a total alpha. I do not say no to that. And sparks fly between these two.

About the world then. It was an interesting world where humans thought they were alone but then the wyr and others came forward and now they live side by side. The wyr are beings who can transform into animals, well it's more like they are the animals and transformed into humans. There are different kinds and Dragos, well he has been around since the universe was created. Gotta love an older guy.

This book is a romance after all and things to heat up between these two. He sees her and wants her. So lots of passion promised.

And of course adventure. I can't say any more, but I did like that part.

This book has gotten a lot of great reviews, and sure it was good. But I do confess that I did not fall as deeply as the rest of the blogging world did. Though I still enjoyed it, don't get me wrong. It was a nice paranormal romance.

If you like paranormal romance then I am sure you will like this book because it has just the right ingredients, wild hot passion and an alpha male to drool over.

  2. I'm DYING to read this. Amazon hurry up!!!

  3. I think everyone is reading this. I cant find it...

  4. I've got this book on my shelf and a bit reluctant to start it...i would love to be blown away but if that doesn't happen it will be somewhat of a letdown :((

  5. An alpha male to drool over? And you didn't exactly fell for it? I must reconsider...

  6. hmm, I like the idea of dragons but I don't know if this is for me. Not fan of the cover.

  7. I do love a good alpha male!!

  8. I have also read those raving reviews, and had this book scheduled for the weekend. I am really looking forward to it, also because it should be just plain fun a lot of the time. Now I am even more eager to start reading it and find out for myself.

  9. The real question here is...would you read the next book in the series??

  10. @Diana
    Dragons are sure big, lol, ok that sounds wrong

    I hope you get it soon and loves it as much as everyone else does

    You can't? How come?

  11. @Leontine
    That was how it was for me :( And silly really cos the book was still good, but I was just waiting to be blown away

    I fell for him, the book, nah

    You should look at the back closer, freaky!

  12. @Audra
    Mmm me too :D

    It sure was easy and fast to read. And I do hope you will be wowed like so many others

    That is the tough question...ok buy no, but if I found at the library yes

  14. I like the colors on the cover.

  15. sounds different and interesting! a dragon and an alpha...sounds good.

  16. Okay, it does have all the ingredients I need. Sounds good. :)

    Oh and you are so EVIL!!! Your FF has a cliffhanger. EVIL! EVILLLL! *takes off caps lock* I'm done. ;)

  17. You read so many paranormals and they sound great.

  18. Hmm hot dragon lurve and slurpees ;)

  19. An alpha male and wild hot passion sound enticing ;) haha
    I've hardly read any book with dragons; so I might read this.

  20. I'm glad you enjoyed this, though it's always hard when you finish a book and don't know if you really loved it, you know? Fab review :)

  21. Now this one does interest me...hmmmm...I may have to check this one out!

  22. @Carrie
    Nothing wrong with those as long as they are nice :)

    There they did do well

    Oh he owns it, lol. He is truly powerful and famous

    What me?! *looks all innocent* But I did not kill anyone this time :) Don't you worry, I do want to write part 2 and I will TRY not to kill anyone there either

  23. @Yvonne
    I do enjoy them :)

    Hihi, I did wonder how that weird stuff tasted

    Lol, too bad there was only one dragon but hey that is better than none

    I fear I knew that from page 10, but it was still ok, I mean I just did not fall as hard as everyone else seems to have done

    have a look,everyone loves it, more than be too

  24. The word Dragon in the title automatically caught my eye, but after reading your review.... the thing is, I got a mountain of TBR spilling from the shelves onto piles on the floor... in my futile fight to keep the TBR under control, I don't think I'd be picking this book up...

  25. @Cherry
    Though everyone else loved it to pieces..but yes I do get the huge TBR pile. I am trying not to buy more books, or borrow awesome books from the library. I need to read those I have

  26. I picked up DRAGON BOUND the other day and really liked it. I'm not in love with it, but it was a fun and light read - great if you don't want anything too serious or deep.

  27. @Jennifer
    So you were a bit more like me then. Good but did not fall in love like so many others :)
