Endi's life changed forever when he learned how to call forth the hidden dragon natures in the dogs of his hometown, and even more when his talent threw him together with his longtime crush. Now, Endi and his Chief are back!
Endi's trying to learn how to be a sub and not just a slutty bottom, and Chief's working on balancing being Endi's boss with topping the irrepressible Dragonwalker. When the dragon-dogs of Endicott begin disappearing, Endi and Chief step into a world of trouble where the threat of failure could tear them apart. Will they be able to tell fact from fiction, friend from enemy, in time to figure out the mystery of the dragon-dogs and save their love? The first Dragonwalker story appeared in the anthology Another Fine Mess.
You have a gift, but you can’t fully use it. You have a lover, but you can’t admit it freely. What do you do? If you’re Endicott Rex: King of Wands, you have a couple of big problems.
The premise of this story is interesting. Two people who are lovers have to learn to work together and keep the relationship alive despite turmoil that neither can control. I like that Chief is the Dom not only in his job, but in the relationship. He personified the alpha male. At the same time, Endicott is supposed to be a Lord High Wrangler, but sometimes he comes across as very wimpy and not likable. My favorite characters are the dragon dogs. Lomi has the most caring attitude and she never utters a word.
The quick style of the story keeps the reader’s attention. You want to know what is going to happen next and if the relationship between Chief and Endi will survive. Plus you want to be sure the dragon dogs will be safe!
What really saved this story for me was the description by Chief as to what he plans to do with Endi. Keep in mind, the things don’t happen until after the story. But that being said, the description was so in-depth you felt like it was happening to you! It stays with you way after the last page.
If you want a story with a mix of action, heart, and spice, then you need to read Endicott Rex: King of Wands. I give this story 3.5 cherries.
