PAVO (Dragon King Book #1) by S Cinders

An exciting new spin off in the Lycan Mating Games world

This particular book can be read stand alone without having read the other ‘Lycan’ books. There is no character cross-over and very little reference to the previous books either. Whether future books will need you to have read the other 3 I wouldn’t like to say.

I very much enjoyed Zoe and Cane’s story, which is fairly low angst, they fight their battles together rather than against each other. It’s a very hot, insta-lust story, leading to a fairly insta-love situation. Whilst I’m not a huge fan of these in contemporary romances, in a paranormal/fantasy romance I’m much less picky. The chemistry between Cane and Zoe is scorching hot – this is one sexy and erotic read. There is spanking so if a dominant man spanking/disciplining a submissive female is likely to offend you this probably isn’t the book for you. 

We get the start of Ava and Titus’ story (I very much hope we will be seeing more of them in the next book!) and also met some other fascinating and intriguing characters. There are some good world building elements in this, I really liked the whole Norse mythology aspect.

Would I like more depth in the books? Yes, I love a book that takes me on a journey both emotionally and with it’s story. One where we see the characters grow and develop, revealing hidden depths. However sometimes all you want/need is a light read that you can get absorbed by and complete easily without too much stress or anxiety. This is just such a read. There is complexity in the plot, plenty of heat, good twists and some very easy to like characters. I also enjoyed the pop culture Marvel references!

S Cinders has an unerring ability to write an engaging and fun story that has plenty of surprises too.

” Let’s just say that the other realms have been reminded of our presence. Take the message to the wolves that the dragons are coming.” 

In the generations since they came to Earth, they have forgotten their true beginnings. There are said to only be five realms that are connected to ours: Earth, Pavo, Fae, Asgard, and the Shadow Lands.

This is a story about Pavo, the dragon realm, and the four dominant Dragon Kings who rule there. For years there has been a liaison between the realms to supply the lusty dragons with sensual companionship. Zoe, a voluptuous librarian, accidentally stumbles upon the earthly portal and is transported to Pavo. Upon first glance of her beauty, Cane knows that he must have her in his bed – no matter the cost. Zoe finds herself drawn to the alpha dragon king and his fiery temperament. But a dragon could never mate with a human – could he?

Meanwhile, a sinister evil far greater than anything they have yet faced is coming for their kind. Thankfully, they have allies: wild, sensual creatures with scales and wings. They are ancient beasts that have sworn to protect the five realms.

Publisher’s Note: This action-packed, steamy sci-fi romance contains elements of power exchange.
