Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison Synopisis
THE FIRST NOVEL IN THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING ELDER RACES SERIES!
Half-human and half-wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful—and passionate—of the Elder races.
As the most feared and respected of the wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they’ve ignited in each other.
Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave—although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul…
My Review of Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison
Pia has been taught all her life to run and hide. Alone after her mother’s death, she makes a mistake and tells her boyfriend a small, tiny part of her secret. It comes back to bite her in the ass. Her boyfriend is a loser and uses her secret to blackmail her into doing something so dangerous and stupid that she knows she is going to have to run and hide for the rest of her life. He wants her to find and steal from a dragon’s horde. Pia feels like she’s damned either way. Her dumps her boyfriend but does the deed and steals from Drago, the head of the Wyer domain.
Drago is the king of all shifters and the leader of an elite group of shifters. He was born at the beginning of the universe and has lived a life that is eons old. He has been worshipped as a god and seen civilizations rise and fall. Drago is used to going unchallenged. Who would dare? Who would try to find his most precious things and anger a being that had as much Power as he does? No one is the history of the world have ever tried to steal from him. Until now…
After stealing from Drago, Pia is on the run. She heads to out of town and hauls ass to get to another magical domain ruled by the Faye. It’s her only chance at survival. Drago will have a new set of rules to follow or risk war. But he finds her and doesn’t care about the consequences with the Faye. When he finds out why Pia did what she did, he knows she’s not really to blame for the their, but he will find out who is trying to use her to get to him. Before anything can really get accomplished they are kidnapped and taken to an Other Land.
The plot is well balanced with action, world building, and romance. It’s got a good pace and although there are parts when I thought the romance is moving too fast, I still loved this book. I loved that Pia has to try and keep a overbearing dragon in check and Drago has to learn that love means more than sex, he has to woo Pia and give her freedom and choice.
This is another gateway drug to a new series and I’ll be honest there are a few books in the series I have no interest in reading, but they can be read as stand alone novels.
Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison Spoilers
- Pia is a half Wyr. She doesn’t know what she is either. Her mom never really let her learn about that side of herself. (Shhh, she’s a unicorn) 🙂 The scene when they find out together is great and Drago’s devotion is swoon worthy.
- Not everyone is as they appear and Pia is kidnapped again. I love it when a badass Alpha has to go save his mate. And Sweet Baby Jesus, Drago doesn’t disappoint. The world will end before he lets her die.
