From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the final novella featuring Pia and Dragos…
Pia’s latest pregnancy has become a daily challenge, her relationship with Dragos strained with argument. That hasn’t stopped them from achieving a compromise and traveling to Las Vegas to celebrate their friend Rune’s wedding to his mate Carling.
From the moment they arrive, the trip goes awry. Death walks in Vegas, and Pia is kidnapped as an ancient enemy makes a move to destroy the Great Beast once and for all.
But the Great Beast has other plans.
On Planet Dragos everything goes the way he arranges it—unless someone decides to cross him, and God help them then, because he doesn’t know how to back down, and he doesn’t ever, ever let up….
As my favorite couples of the Elder Races series, I was so happy to read another Dragos and Pia’s book, and then I was sad to find out this was the final book of Pia and Dragos.
It would turn out not only this is the last novella focusing on Dragos and Pia, but there was a deeper meaning to “Planet Dragos”. Which considered to Liam, the dragon offspring of Pia and Dragos. Since Liam is all grown up now, this would mean the world will now have two adult dragons. But is the world ready for two dragons? When significant changes were made in this book, it would seem there may be a new direction in the series, which for someone enjoying reading about the first family of the Elder Races, it was a bittersweet news. However, I would be lying if I say I was completely surprised by this turnabout, as Dragos have been struggling with his place in the human world. Not to mention, for his beloved mate Pia, who could never be “free” and safe living where they are now. In addition to the new baby in the family, in many ways it was time for changes.
Like previous novellas, the setting of Planet Dragos focused on Dragos and Pia’s relationship, family, new troubles and Dragos’ old enemies. It was also interesting to learn about Dragos’ “brother” and what this character may represented in the series. I will look forward to see more of this character in the future.
Overall, I thought this was a perfect ending to Pia and Dragos’ main story. Yes, it was shorter than I would’ve liked, but it was still action-packing and fast pace. I’ve enjoyed reading about Dragos’ and Pia’s relationship, and how they have progressed. At the end this book which has me wonder about the future of the Elder Races. Will we have books about Liam and his brother? Because I would love to read about their story!
Reading Order for stories focus on the Cuelebres, the First Family of the Wyr.
