    a must read

    This novel was fun, funny, and endlessly hot. Cooke has taken an out of this world idea and woven it together with a rewarding relationship and some quite surprising twists to create a plot that kept me glued to the pages (or thinking about them when I had to get back to work). She left me a little broken inside at times, but the heartbreak was well worth the fantastic tale that I journeyed. Cooke’s world building was perfect. She allowed readers to picture the world and the events surrounding her characters, without taking away their ability to use their imagination. The history and politics of Incendium are presented without bogging down the plot. This was a fantastic start to hot new series. The relationship between the main characters sizzles while the action kept me on my toes. And don’t even get me started on the characters. I’ve never met a character who could make me laugh while breaking my heart before. Cooke has developed the main characters of this tale so well and subtly that I felt as if I knew them personally without ever actually having to stop my journey to get to know them. They were the type of character that I could laugh & cry with, but also the type that I wanted to be. I love how strong they both were, but still with vulnerability. I also enjoyed the peek that we got at the royal house of Incendium, hinting towards future novels and placing our heroine into a greater context. This may have been my first novel by this talented author, but it’s definitely sparked me to pop more of her work to the top of my TBR pile. I can’t wait for the sequel to this series or to delve further into other worlds that she’s created. If this novel is any indication, she will be quickly becoming a ‘go-to’ author for me.

    Wyvern's Mate

    I listened to this audio book because I am a big fan of Deborah Cook and Saskia Maarleveld. To be honest, at first it took some getting use to since it is so completely different from the books I have been reading lately. In the end, I'd say I actually was surprised by the fact that I enjoyed listening to it so much more than I ever imagined. It's always good to break out of a rut/habit and read or listen to something completely different from your norm. I can honestly say that I'm looking forward to reading/listening to the remaining books in this series. If you're looking for something unique and refreshingly different, you should check out this series by Deborah Cook. I really enjoyed this experience.

    3.5 stars- Wyvern's Mate by Deborah Cooke

    3.5 stars-- WYVERN’S MATE is the first installment in Deborah Cooke’s adult THE DRAGONS OF INCENDIUM romantic, fantasy series focusing on the twelve dragon shifter princesses of Incendium. This is eldest sister Drakina, and Mindbender Troy’s story line-a fated romance where Troy is expected to assassinate the royal princess. Told from dual third person perspectives WYVERN’S MATE introduces some of the characters, the history and the tepid truce between the planets of Incendium, and Regalia, and the royal decree whereby the twelve dragon princesses of Incendium will be betrothed to the twelve gifted princes of Regalia. When things don’t go according to plans, Drakina finds herself ordered to Earth where she will find the ‘Carrier of the Seed’-the one male able to fertilize the dragon’s egg that she carries so that she is able to birth the next generation of royal dragons. What ensues is a building relationship between Drakina and Troy- a relationship that could very well end Drakina’s life. For fans of Cooke’s previous series about dragons, THE DRAGONS OF INCENDIUM is NOT connected to, or a spinoff from, her best selling Dragonfire series. The current series focuses on female dragon shifters searching for their ‘HeartKeeper’-their mate- but the princes of Regalia are not necessarily the male that calls to the princesses hearts. The world building reveals the potential doom and fallout if no royal heir is to be conceived, and the possible destruction of two planets pulled into the heat of their sun. WYVERN’S MATE is a quick read; a fast paced novella length story of romance and love; duty and honor; magic and dragons. The character building is limited-I would have preferred more background information about Drakina, and Troy-especially as it concerned Troy’s time imprisoned at Xanto-the who, what and why. The premise is entertaining-almost science fiction is its presentation; the characters are colorful and animated; the romance is a quick build to a happily ever after. A wonderful start to a new series.
