Review: Dragonsworn (Dark-Hunter #28) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Book Blurb

There is nothing in the universe the cursed dragon, Falcyn, hates more than humanity . . . and in particular, Greek humans. In a war he wanted no part of, they systematically destroyed everything he’d ever cared for. Now he lies in seclusion, away from the world and waits for the day when evolution will finally rid him of the human vermin.

Medea was born the granddaughter of the Greek god Apollo, and among the first of his people that he cursed to die. But she will not let anyone rule her life. Not even her notorious grandfather. And when Apollo sends a new plague to destroy what remains of her people, she refuses to standby and watch him take everything she loves from her again.

This time, she knows of a secret weapon that can stop the ancient god and his army of demons. Once and for all. However, said device is in the hands of a dragon who wants nothing to do with politics, the gods, humanity, demons or Greek Apollites. And especially not her. He is the immovable object.

My enemy’s enemy . . .

When Apollo makes a strategic move that backfires, he forces Falcyn back into play. Now Medea either has the weapon she needs to save her people, or she’s unleashed total Armageddon. If she can’t find some way to control the dragon before it’s too late, Falcyn will be an even worse plague on the world than the one Apollo has set loose. But how can anyone control a demonic dragon whose sole birthright is total destruction?

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Falcyn Drago is an angry dragon.  He blames his brother for losing his son.  He is also the oldest of his kind and everyone is after his dragon stone.  He gets dragged into the war with Apollo when Medina enters the picture.  She needs a dragon stone to save her people from the disease that Apollo gave to the whole population of her people.  Falcyn is drawn to her.  She is strong and a true fighter.  Her past loss tugs at his heart.  She understands how he feels.
They work together against Apollo and Morgana.  Falcyn learns his son is alive as is his sister.  He, Medina, and a few others set off to save them.  Falcyn and Medina have to learn to trust each other and the others they are with.  Medina fears the feelings Falcyn stir in her.  She doesn’t want to be hurt that way ever again when she lost her husband and son.  It is the reason she is what she is today.  Yet Falcyn proves over and over that he has her back and will protect her.  He is slowly tearing down her walls.
She also knows what he needs.  She is determined to support him when he needs it.  She refuses to let Apollo and Morgana get Falcyn’s dragon stone or keep prisoner the one he loves.  The fight is on.
I love this series and this author.  Falcyn has been a mysterious character.  The author hasn’t revealed much about him or why he is so angry until now.  The history he has had shed light on his attitude now.  No wonder and quite the shock too.  Finding out who and what he really is was not what I expected.  Neither was who he was paired with.  Medina is not one of my favorite character in stories past.  However, you come to understand her much better in this book.  You are shown a more human side of her.  The two bond over their losses and tragedies.  They seemed to make more sense together as the story moves forward.
Medina is pretty bad-ass and I decided I liked her a lot in this book.  She is a good guy instead of the villain.  She truly kicks butt.  She is joined by Falcyn, her brother and Falcyn’s nephew.  This small group is determined to save those they can.  They pick up a couple of strays along the way.

 It was a great story and addition to the series.  I’m interested to see what happens next with these two.  You know they will continue to do things their way as they did throughout the whole story.  I give this book a 4 out of 5.
