Abigail Owen knows things that she shouldn't. Having been
kidnapped by fanatics but survived she's taking a trip to
visit Russia, to get away, but fearing that the Knights of
the Dragon had followed her, she jumps to another train and
loses the man following her. Big mistake, a bodyguard can't
guard a missing body.
Part of the ability that got Abigail kidnapped is an
affinity with stones, and innocently she finds a unique
bracelet in a little shop, not knowing that it is a DRAKON'S
TEAR. A Drakon only cries for his love, and those tears
become stones that are indicative of the kind of Drakon he is.
Vasili Zima is a Drakon and has spent years searching out
the dangerous artifacts that endanger his kind. Abigail is
an enigma to him; he is drawn to the woman, saves her from
danger and wants her more than he has ever in his life
wanted anyone. There's no way he will let her go and
certainly no way he will allow the Knights to get their
hands on her.
DRAKON'S TEAR is a continuation of author N.J. Walters' Blood
of the Drakon series and with each offering this
series just gets better. With DRAKON'S TEAR, we get more
information about the Drakons and their human mothers and
dragon fathers and another kind of Drakon that surprises the
others. But I will let you read the book to find out what
kind Vasili is, just know he is amazing.
There is an insta-love involved but as a believer of love at
first sight I have no problem with it. But, what I found
amazing was they moved on at Abigail's pace, he knew she had
suffered a trauma and feeling protective wouldn't let even
himself push her beyond what she was ready for. Abigail is
spunky, but because of what she had endured with the
kidnapping, her sister marrying a Drakon (Nic and Constance
from Drakon's Past), and her own mixed up feelings about
herself she needs time to work through things. Which, of
course, she does as Ms. Walters doesn't write a sad ending book.
Along with Vasili and Abigail, there are others who add to
the overall seamless storyline; characters from past books
come into this one, an amazing priest with a very
intelligent, quick mind, who knows a lot of things the world
isn't ready for and bad guys who are really slimy, evil
dudes. Humor slips in and out of the pages, balancing with
the action and danger neatly.
DRAKON'S TEAR can easily be read as a stand-alone because
there is enough background information to bring you up to
date. So, if you love to read about a vulnerable yet strong
heroines, a hero with a protective streak, danger, intrigue
and a romance that will make your heart beat faster then get
your hands on DRAKON'S TEAR!
Dying isnít an option. Iíve survived a kidnapping and now
Iím on the run from the Knights of the Dragon who want my
gift. Iím Abigail Owens and I can sense gemstones. Thereís
nothing a dragon loves more than treasure. But when I find a
beautiful stone at a tiny shop in Moscow, I have no idea
itís a drakon tear, or that Iíve just put myself in the
middle of a war between the Knights and a Drakon.
I guess Iím just lucky like that.
The only person I trust even a little is Vasili Zima, which
is weird since Iím not sure if he wants to kill me or
protect me. Iím drawn to him in a way I hadnít thought
possible, and he feels the same way, or he wouldnít be
risking his life to help me. Heís wanted by the bad guys
just as much as I am, and staying with me, well, thereís a
hundred percent chance Iím about to get us both killed. But
I will not be going down without a fight.
