Ja’darien, slayer of Dracs, will stop at nothing to banish his deviant desire for the dragons. He won't rest until he rids the world of the beasts. On the edge of a ravine, he waits for his prey.
Kerkira, a winged dragon, hunts the slayer. Yet, when given the chance, he can’t kill his enemy. The man is his mate. However, because of Ja'darien's sins against the Dracs, Kerkira vows the slayer’s submission will not be pleasant.
The bond of mating is more intense than either is prepared for. Will Kerkira forgive him because Ja’darien is at the mercy of the dragon?
I was in the mood for dragon and got more than my fill in this story were dragon meet dragon slayer. Ja’Darien may not be a slayer in this situation. Kerkira has one up on him since he recognizes him as his mate. But a relationship between a dragon and dragon slayer would never work; or would it?
Short stories for me in the past have been perplexing. I just cannot seem to get into the plot as much as I would like in such a short amount of time. Except in this story the plot was so action packed I fell right into place. With only seventeen pages it is an art to make a complete storyline, but author KyAnn Water’s did just that. The plot was created in a way that had me enthralled from beginning to end. The romantic and personal conflict meshed well together. I am not sure where the author gets such unique ideas but I am glad she has them because they make for very interesting read.
Both main characters in this story were men’s men. Well at least they like to believe they were. The fact that they are mortal enemies means that one person needs to be willing to submit and change for the other. Seeing as though Kerkira can’t change who he is that only leaves one person: Ja’Darien. The inner conflict displayed by both characters because of who or what they are added depth to the story. I think the author could have easily turned this short story into a full novel and it would have been just as enjoyable.
Kerkira brings a new meaning to chasing tale. His tail is an interesting additive to sex play. If more men had tails they would not need us women, so I am thankful they do not have Kerkira’s abilities, but it did make for an interesting read...especially if you don’t mind feeling a little flustered. Luckily for Ja’Darien he will not be replaced by that talented tail, but instead get the experience the please that particular appendage can bring.
Mercy of the Dragon was a great story that keep me thoroughly entertained. What else can a reader ask for?
