Review:

*I received an ecopy of this book via StoryOrigin. This has not influenced my review.*

This was a quick, light, fun read about queer dragons in human form!

I enjoyed getting to see the world through the POV of a character who was new to the human realm and human things and didn’t understand right away what everything was or how it all worked. That was fun.

Speaking of, I like reading about sorta dragons, which these were. They weren’t shifters, per se, they just had a dragon form in their realm and a human form in this one (as far as I understood), though they could still have wings if they wanted. And Zephyr still had a bit of magic, though it would fade over time. And they had their own sort of unusual hoards.

Zephyr was a fun, bright-color-loving, sweetheart. Mateo was cynical and unsociable, but just trying to be himself and live his life away from dragon expectations, with his piercings and tattoos and music collection.

There was a bit of romance between them, which was cute. But I would’ve liked to see more of their time together, more build-up, rather than mostly sorta summaries of it. I believed they had feelings, but I didn’t actually feel those feelings.

The plot and world-building (it was mostly set on Earth with some mentions of dragon culture) were uncomplicated, making it a good book when you just want to be distracted by a nice story without worrying about keeping track of things or thinking too hard.

Overall, a fairly light, uncomplicated book that could’ve had a bit more depth in the romance, but I enjoyed reading about this grumpy/sunshine pair of dragons trying to be human and growing closer to each other.

    I think we need more stories of dragons trying to fit in to human culture. Imagine the college scene where someone is trying to blend in and go to a big school. that would be fun.
