anyone he wanted but not forthan a night or two He has responsibilities towards his people and no where in that includes having a lover, even if he does harbor some intense feelings for a certain dragon rider because nothing could ever come of it Nykin is one of the King s elite dragon riders that has a special bond with the dragon, Fimor, but his desire to have Ryneq is almost as strong When the time comes for Ryneq to escort his sister safely to the city of Alel, he s expecting an ambush but with his dragons, he hopes he can still get his sister to her betrothed Unfortunately, things don t go as planned when his enemies end up injuring and kidnapping Ryneq during the ambush Desperate to rescue his King, Nykin volunteers to breach the fortress Ryneq s being held at even if it means sacrifice himself to save the man he s starting to love.I LOVED this book It hitthan just a few of my buttons It s a fantasy, there s dragons, there s royalty, there s kidnapping, there s not a lot of sex sorry, guys and most of all, there s sexual tension enough for me at least P The world pulled me in from the beginning and I loved being able to explore the dragons and their bonds with their riders I also loved that the world had human enemies and elven allies because it made for some interesting discoveries all around.The characters are a real treat, though Nykin is the young brash dragon rider, who s quick to offer his help without really thinking about how it ll affect others like his dragon Ryneq is calmer,serious but he s drawn to Nykin and his constant blushing It s adorable, to be honest One thing that I loved was Ryneq s jealousy when a few elves were flirting with Nykin While Nykin and Ryneq weren t lovers, the attraction between them is obvious to everyone except each other so Ryneq s reactions to others attentions on Nykin were amusing to say the least When they finally get together, it was worth the wait I just wished we were able to seeof them getting to know each other passed what was on the surface, so to speak.While I loved this story, I did feel like at the end, we missed out on a fewscenes and instead were just told about them For example, when Nykin woke up and Ryneq tells him how much he s had to do at the castle, the discussion about appointing Nykin King s Consort, etc I would have liked to see some of that happening.In the end, I really enjoyed this story It s intense at times and has some good tension between Nykin and Ryneq, especially with Ryneq s jealousy I also loved that it had some good suspense and action not to mention the world was very intriguing I can t wait to read the sequel, Union, because I m really looking forward to exploringof the bond between Ryneq and Nykin DNF at 33%This is where my commitment to review everything except big trad sellers with 4 gazillion reviews is really hard I always feel so darned mean But I couldn t take any of Capture In order to explain why I chose to give up on it, I m going to cut paste my somewhat free flowing, grammatically questionable, definitely not pristine notes below At least I tend to write my notes in complete thoughts Writing really stiff It uses names and pronouns constantly There were whole len DNF at 33%This is where my commitment to review everything except big trad sellers with 4 gazillion reviews is really hard I always feel so darned mean But I couldn t take any of Capture In order to explain why I chose to give up on it, I m going to cut paste my somewhat free flowing, grammatically questionable, definitely not pristine notes below At least I tend to write my notes in complete thoughts Writing really stiff It uses names and pronouns constantly There were whole lengthy passages in which almost every sentence either started with a name or he And that doesn t even account for the use of he within the sentence itself It made for very staccato reading It got to the point that I was literally nodding my head as if jostled everytime I had to read the word he You know, like, there s one, there s another, and another and another and another Even if I m not doing it on purpose, if I m that distracted by the repetition of a word you can guarantee I m not sunk into the story at all.I also have to use my least favorite literary critiscim here I hate it because it s so common that it s almost become would be reviewers automatic critique phrase, but here it s use is also appropriate There is a lot of telling in this story Had the story usedshow then it wouldn t have allowed for all of the HEs in the first place I hate to say it felt amateurish, but it kind of did OMG, the names For one, there are far, far too many named characters Many seem to play no significant role in the story so the flood of names was merely a distraction Plus, all the names were the crazy fantasy type names that are all but unpronounceable in real life They may look good on paper, with all the Ys and Rs but are still ridiculous.instant and unexplained lust for one another on meeting Nykin is at least supposed to have had a crush on the king from afar, so I understand him But Ryneq lays eyes on Nykin, doesn t even know him and instantly starts getting proprietary and jealous of any man coming near Nykin He s instantly smitten, thinking of Nykin, etc There was no build up, no getting to know eachother, no anything really The cursing seemed out of place I generally have no problem with characters cussing up a storm But here fuck was just randomly thrown in on occasion It didn t fit the tone of the book at all Thus, it felt out of place each and every time it was used.OK, so there it is I m cringing for my own honesty, but I didn t see a lot of likelihood that this book would improve for me So, I m letting it go Such a shame too, I LOVE dragons and hot dragon riders and sexually open kings Plus, it wasn t even a freebie I paid for it , but this was not going to be a winner for me I m sure others might love it I encourage you to give it a go and see what you think
