Wonderfully Original!

Call of the Dragon (Return to Avalore Book 1) - Elianne Adams

Call of the Dragon was definitely unique and kept my attention from start to finish. I literally could not put this book down, I stayed up all night reading it, I just needed to know who the evil do'er was! At the start of the book your literally just thrown into Rhia's world where she starts to explain what happened to her as she fights off a monster. It actually totally works, it really reminds me of the opening scene for Underworld, just without all that leather! The point of view also switches right off the bat, so you get the world from Rhia's eyes, but also from Drake an his warrior perspective.

Rhia was a great heroine, she actually followed her instincts. I liked the fact that she was able to show vulnerability and be scared, at the same time though she was more than ready to take down anything in her way. She was also very compassionate and loving towards people, even those she just met. Drake is your alpha type guy with an unusual condition. He's kinda hot then cold, and goes back and forth for awhile with his feelings. I enjoyed him all the same. Some side characters like Rhias' family were introduced as well, they all seemed interesting. Aiken seemed the most mysterious, while Evan seemed like an open book for the most part.

I really loved this book, it was fun and original all around. I really haven't ever come across an idea quite like this before. The monsters themselves were very original, as were the Avalorians an their society. I'm definitely going to pick up more books from this author and continue with this series.

This is 18+ there are sex scenes.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
