For most, a plane crash means the end of life. For Dusti Dawson, it’s just the beginning…
Dusti and her sister Batina survived the crash, thanks to a couple of brothers who are equal parts menacing and muscled. She’d be grateful…if they hadn’t turned out to be delusional kidnappers, who believe Dusti’s grandfather is some monstrous halfbreed creature bent on murder. Turns out Vampires, Lycans, and Gargoyles do exist— and they’ve been crossbreeding to form two hybrid races. Drantos, the man Dusti can’t stop lusting after, is one of the most dangerous of all.
VampLycans Drantos and Kraven were sent to eliminate a threat to their clan. But when that threat turns out to be mostly human women, clueless of their lineage, plans change—especially after Drantos gets a taste of Dusti’s blood. Now, he’ll die to protect her. Even if that means walking away from everything he knows to keep her at his side.
Is her strong desire for Drantos reason enough to endure danger coming from all sides? Or should Dusti cut and run the first chance she gets?
Author Note: VLG stands for Vampires, Lycans, Gargoyles…and breeds in between. Living in Alaska’s harsh, pristine territories, these creatures live and love fiercely. These are their stories.
What is not to Love about Laurann Dohnner, her writing is fun and sexy and she writes PNR pretty fantastically. When I heard that she had created a new series, I was intrigued and very eager to try this new series out. So I snached up Drantos and had high hopes for it and I was as satisfied as eating a steak after being on a liquid diet for weeks. And what a whopper this story turned out to be. It starts up when our heroine Dusti and her sister Batina are traveling up to Alaska to see their granfather. Their grandfather is not someone you want in your family tree. He despises Dusti because he views her as weak because she suffers a blood disorder. When their plane crashes and the sisters are rescued by two alpha males who are dominerring and somewhat scary at times. Dusti soons learns after meeting Drantos of what he really is and what she is. When their grandfather’s men close in around them, the sisters are seperated and Dusti relies on Drantos.
This story was quite fun and different. We see a group of supernatural creatures Gargoyles, Vampires and Lycans that live in the wilds of Alaska and have built a community of packs there. I definitely liked Dusti way more than her sister though. Dusti is much more down to earth, she is hardworking but she also tended to let her emotions get too out of control at times. However once Dusti becomes more accepting of the reality of who she is and what Drantos is….she definitely becomes more likeable. But this is not the end…because Dusti will become even more tested when she will have to face enemies, and fight for the man she loves and their way of life.
Even though Drantos is not my favorite of this author…the writing is engaging and I had fun with these alpha males that Dohner creates in this stunning new series. I am excited to see what she does with this new world she has opened up. Drantos is a likeable and infectious romance that leaves the reader feeling intrigued and wanting more of the VLG.
