Review: Drantos by Laurann Dohner

Author: Laurann Dohner
Title: Drantos
Series: VLG Series - Book 1
Beings: Shapeshifters

Rating: B
Heat: Burning

Bought from: Amazon
Read format: Ebook


For most, a plane crash means the end of life. For Dusti Dawson, it’s just the beginning… 

Dusti and her sister Batina survived the crash, thanks to a couple of brothers who are equal parts menacing and muscled. She’d be grateful…if they hadn’t turned out to be delusional kidnappers, who believe Dusti’s grandfather is some monstrous halfbreed creature bent on murder. Turns out Vampires, Lycans, and Gargoyles do exist— and they’ve been crossbreeding to form two hybrid races. Drantos, the man Dusti can’t stop lusting after, is one of the most dangerous of all. 

VampLycans Drantos and Kraven were sent to eliminate a threat to their clan. But when that threat turns out to be mostly human women, clueless of their lineage, plans change—especially after Drantos gets a taste of Dusti’s blood. Now, he’ll die to protect her. Even if that means walking away from everything he knows to keep her at his side. 

Is her strong desire for Drantos reason enough to endure danger coming from all sides? Or should Dusti cut and run the first chance she gets? 

The cover is amazing! It stands out and it is appealing. I love it!

VLG is a new series by Laurann Dohner and it stands for Vampires, Lycans, and Gargoyles. I have read almost all books out there by Laurann and I have loved them all. I looked forward to reading this one even if shapeshifters aren't really my thing. 

At first, I didn't know what to expect. I found the story to be quite classical to a shapeshifter story. There were the laws, a town of their own, the clans, and of course, the shapeshifting. Very classical, but at the same time, the story had a twist of its own with the mixed vampire, lycan, and gargoyle bloodlines. I really look forward to Aveoth's book. I hope he will get one!

There was a lot of background and information about how things work in their world. Sometimes, it was a little bit difficult to follow, but eventually, it all sank in. 

The story was filled with action, true love, hot sex scenes and drama. A great mix and even if the book was long, I didn't experience it as such. I loved reading it. The only thing I didn't like was the sisters attitudes. Very unprofessional and immature sometimes, but in the end, I enjoyed reading this book. Definitely another success by Laurann Dohner!! I look forward to reading the next one in the series.

Review: Breathing Vapor by Cynthia Sax.

Author: Cynthia Sax
Title: Breathing Vapor
Series: Cyborg Sizzle - Book 2
Beings: Cyborgs

Rating: A
Heat: Burning

Bought from: Amazon
Read format: Ebook


Vapor is the most advanced cyborg the Humanoid Alliance has ever developed. He’s a finely honed weapon, a warrior without parallel, half man and half machine. No lock can contain him. No being can stop him. Whatever he wants, he takes. 

He wants Mira Breazeal, the Designer’s daughter. 

She’s his one temptation, his sexy target. Vapor shouldn’t crave her caresses, steal her kisses, make her scream with ecstasy. The cyborgs want her dead and they would question his loyalty if he didn’t kill her. The humans would shoot him on sight if he dared to touch her. 

Their love is forbidden. Their desire could be lethal. One human and one cyborg will risk everything for a moment of passion. 

A sexy and appealing cover in beautiful colors!

This is the second book in the Cyborg Sizzle series. I really looked forward to reading it and I can, without a doubt, say that I can't wait for the third book to come out. This series is intriguing with strong, powerful, and very masculine cyborgs and with strong and determined women trying to fit into a world dominated by men. 

The love story in this book was powerful and I found Mira, the female main character, to be strong considering what she had to go through every day. I liked Vapor and the other characters as well. It felt like they were all well thought through. 

This is a dark science fiction romance, but I didn't find it as dark as the first book. This book is, in other words, not for everyone, but if you like dark stories filled with romance, action, and hot sex scenes, then this is a book for you! I highly recommend it!
