Review: A Dragon's Family Album and Midnight's Kiss by Thea Harrison

A Dragon's Family Album (Elder Races, #6.5, #6.6, #6.7)A Dragon's Family Album by Thea Harrison

This book contains Dragos Takes a Holiday, Pia Saves the Day, and Peanut Goes to School (two novellas and a short story in the Elder Races series, previously published separately). All three stories focus on the Cuelebres, the First Family of the Wyr.

Dragos Takes a Holiday: When the Cuelebre family heads to Bermuda for some much needed R&R, it’s no ordinary weekend in the sun. Between Pirates, treasure hunting, and a baby dragon… what could possibly go wrong?

Pia Saves the Day: The Cuelebres have moved to upstate New York where they finally have the space to indulge their Wyr side, and Liam can grow in safety. Their idyllic situation is shattered when Dragos is injured and stripped of his memory. Without Pia’s taming influence, there’s nothing holding back Dragos’s darkest side.

Peanut Goes to School: Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon. At just six months of age, Liam has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. In an effort to give him a taste of normality, his parents enroll him in first grade. But school has a surprising number of pitfalls, and Liam is fast becoming one of the most dangerous creatures in all of the Elder Races.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Midnight's Kiss by Thea HarrisonMidnight's Kiss by Thea Harrison

Ever since their scorching affair ended years ago, Julian, the Nightkind King, and Melisande, daughter of the Light Fae Queen, have tried to put the past behind them—and distance between them. But when a war breaks out between Julian and Justine, a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind council, they find themselves thrown together under treacherous circumstances…

Kidnapped as leverage against Julian, Melly is convinced that her former lover won’t be rushing to her rescue. But when Julian gives himself up to save her, they both end up Justine’s captives. Armed only with their wits and their anger, Melly and Julian must work together to escape. But will they be able to ignore their complicated history, or will the fiery passion that once burned them blaze again?

This book seems like a continuation of the previous book but with a different hero and heroine. There was lots of stories that continued into this book. I really liked Julian better in this story and quite frankly Melisande surprised me. She was a very enterprising and capable lady. And the story was interesting. and Jasmine was truly a crazy witch of a villain. I am so glad she got her comeuppance in the end.

I really hope that Melly's twin gets her own story. She seems like an interesting lady. I bought this book with my own money and I give it 5 stars.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
