A clash of kingdoms. A war of hearts. A final chance.
Colin’s dragon has its jeweled heart set on Leena, but she’s a distraction he doesn’t need. The stars have aligned and it’s time for the Defenders of the Goddess to take back the throne of Paragon or be crushed under the evil empress’s heel. Colin, along with his siblings, is at the center of it all, so why can’t he stop his dragon’s obsession with the elf scribe?
Leena made a vow to the goddess and her people—and she doesn’t intend to break it. Still, there’s only so much temptation any woman can bear. Things in Ouros are coming to a head. War has come, and as much as Leena would like to avoid her feelings for Colin, she’s key to helping the resistance defend her land against Paragon.
As the world unravels around them, Colin and Leena must come to terms with what’s truly important. How far will Colin go in his quest for the kingdom? And can Leena resist the comfort of his embrace in what could be their final days?
While each novel in the Treasure of Paragon series features one couple’s romance, the overall ARC of the series demands that you listen to this series in the order of their release. Spoilers may be found in this review, regarding the series itself.
Things are escalating quickly now that the witches have the key. They just need to unlock it to get the book needed to end the queen’s reign. In the previous audiobook, Colin’s dragon reacted to Leena, the elf scribe, and she to him. But Leena has made an oath to record history and fears Colin will distract her. She demands that he take her home in order to avoid her growing feelings. Meanwhile, the Queen has attacked the five kingdoms of Paragon, forcing alliances.
The Dragons of Paragon was action packed from beginning to end. We saw tremendous movement in the overall ARC and got a few surprises along the way. In fact, I wasn’t sure if this was the last book until a twist developed.
The romance falls to the side because of the action and plot movement, but Jack manages time for swoons, heat, and more. I enjoyed both Leena and Colin’s story and was delighted at how things turned. Both have sacrificed much for their kingdoms and gods.
Fans of paranormal romance, dragons and witches, will love not only the world Jack has created, but the characters themselves. I love books featuring siblings. We get updates on all of them as they were there every step of the way in their effort to save Paragon.
Holly Adams continues her narration of the series and brings these characters and story to life. Her range of voices for both women and men makes her perfect for this large cast.
