Constance Owens has a gift for finding unique items in the most unlikely places, which comes in handy since she buys and sells artifacts and antiques for a living. When she purchases a set of four dragon statues, she has no idea just how unique they are, or that finding them will thrust her into a world of secret societies, men who think nothing of kidnapping and murder to get what they want, and dragon shifters.
Nic hasn’t survived for four thousand years by letting his guard down, and he doesn’t trust anyone except his drakon brothers.
The loneliness haunting him has been getting worse since all his brothers have found their mates. And when he finds the woman his drakon recognizes instantly as his fated mate, he doubts he’ll ever have what his brothers have, because it seems she’s involved with the secret society of hunters who have been hunting and capturing his kind for hundreds of years.

I’ve liked this series so far, and the author’s been pretty cool with her writing and creativity. I loved the thought of drakon brothers slowly finding their one true loves, and I was particularly excited about this one because he was on the brink of the Deep Sleep, where the depression kicks in and they choose sleep over living a meaningless life. Nic’s this social person, a very extroverted gambler who loves collecting things, but even his brothers know that he’s the one to look out for. It’s almost sad, when you think of it.
I had a few reservations about this. While I loved the main characters and the set up in the beginning, the middle started to feel redundant in comparison to the other books. I try not to judge one book because of another, but the whole misunderstanding thing really did feel like it’d been done in every single book in the series. Love the drama, but usually the other things balanced it out. For whatever reason, I couldn’t click with this one, but it was an overall interesting read because of the dragons and ever-avid Knights of the Dragons. Will I read the next book? Definitely, because while this one didn’t do it for me as much, I’m still pretty invested in the series in general.
