A Dragon's Curse
Griall must find the woman who can release him from his curse before he becomes a Death Beast like his father. Even if the man inside him craves the Dragon Slayer's touch, he knows she must destroy the beast who shares his skin before it's too late.
A Slayer's Pride
Xara cannot escape the lie upon which her life is built. A Slayer who has never fought a dragon, she’ll never feel feel strong enough to be the one Griall seeks. Surely, a Slayer wouldn’t allow herself to love a beast! Xara must find a Slayer’s power to kill this dragon before his curse destroys them both.
Griall never dreamed he would yearn for the Slayer whom he wishes to kill him, aching for her as a man does a woman and a dragon does a mate. Xara is more than the means to an end, and deep down he recognizes her as something more. But although Xara bears the mark of a Dragon Slayer, her conquests are nothing more than a sham. After Griall offers to train her in the art of killing dragons, she readily agrees. Yet, neither could have known how their lives and desires would change in the process. Now, time is running out. Will Xara be able to fulfill her destiny and prove she is worthy of her namesake? And will Griall finally receive the peace and freedom that can only be wrought from his death?
Dragon Slayer is one of the most captivating dragon stories I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Fiona Jayde has taken myth, magic, sword, and destiny and wound them together; creating a fascinating story with characters you won’t be able to forget. A man destined to become a beast searches for the one woman who can break his curse and give him peace. How could you possibly go wrong? With elements of fantasy, action, and romance, you have the formula for a sure-fire winner. I loved the characters, the plot, and the tension that comes from what you know has to take place by the story’s conclusion.
The writing style is one of a kind, and manages to convey so much via imagery. Each sentence is structured to display the environment, the atmosphere, and the emotions of the characters.
