Book Review -- Waterfall by Lacy Danes

Waterfall (Dragon's Fate, #1)Waterfall by Lacy Danes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A digital copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

"Oooh, look, a dragon book!" This was my first reaction upon reading the blurb. Being a fan of paranormal tales and fantasies, I am always up for a good read that combines magical lands with romance. This proved to be a pretty enjoyable read. The tale revolves around the four Zir brothers, who are dragons in human form. They are all cursed to remain oblivious to who they are, and the only way for them to find their respective mates is to seek women who will not find their bites lethal - literally! To add to this complexity, their powers are diminishing too. Jordan and Ferrous, two of the brothers, chance upon a shipwreck. To end the misery of a dying woman in the wreck, Jordan bites her and wipes it off his mind, presuming she died. When he encounters her again, on her wedding day, wedded to another man, Jordan is in for a very mind-boggling dilemma. The beautiful woman, Celeste isn't his, to claim anymore, as there is an obstacle in the form of Duke of Hudson, her husband. Does Jordan manage to make Celeste his wife, is what the book takes us through.

The plot is interesting, and I appreciate the fact that the ending isn't a cliffhanger, despite the book being part of a series. Out of all the characters, Celeste is the most difficult to fathom. Although the reader understands her bewilderment, her words and decisions still seem a bit off. The pace of the book is brisk through most of the book, and a bit overwhelmingly fast towards the end. The narrative is good throughout. I'm looing forward to reading the sequels.

I definitely recommend this book to lovers of paranormal romance.

My rating for this book: 3 stars
