Talaith is a beautiful Nolwenn witch who has been trained to be an assassin by a goddess who wants revenge on the Blood Queen. Unfortunately, the goddess is willing to let Talaith go to her death trying to accomplish her task. When Briec happens onto a hanging initiated by her own husband, he saves her. Talaith is happy to be free of a man she never wanted, and already looking for ways to escape Briec’s grasp to wait for the goddess’ call.

Briec is brother to Fearghus the Destroyer, and he’s looking for what has changed him into a happy dragon. Because he has been living alone most of his life, he finds it difficult to accept Talaith and her constant talking is driving him crazy. When she comes face to face with the goddess, and escapes his lair while he was away, to do the deed that was demanded of her, all the while hating the goddess. Briec goes off the deep end a little drinking with his brothers, because of the heartbreaking feeling that Talaith has deserted him.

About A Dragon is the continuing story of dragons and humans coming together to have love, peace and unity in the land. I found myself laughing out loud at the antics of both Talaith and Briec along with others, especially when they found something insulting to say to each other. These two really needed the attention they gave of themselves and his siblings egging them on did not help matters. Behind the developing relationship between Talaith and Briec is a conniving goddess whose main goal is to destroy Annwyl, the Blood Queen who is back again. G. A. Aiken did not disappoint me with the vivid descriptions of the dragons and Annwyl’s fighting skills and berserker rages.

With the addition of Talaith’s daughter, things got even funnier, with her blurting out anything that came to mind. Between the hot and heavy sex scene and comments made by the different characters, human and dragon alike, I was kept entertained through the entire book. G. A. Aiken carries on with the saga of Dragon Kin and has done a fantastic job of telling a story about how dragons and humans work together to defeat gods, goddesses and the members of humankind that want to destroy them. From what I have been reading there is going to be even more stories with these dragons, and I eagerly await the next release in this exciting series. Read and enjoy. You won’t be disappointed!
