Blurb: Tobit is determined to make their clan whole again, and that means convincing Avery to join them completely.
With the ice dragons backing off, the others have gone hunting, leaving Avery and Tobit home alone. They’re the smallest members of the clan, and the weakest, but that has never bothered Tobit. He just wants everyone to be safe and happy, and he does whatever he can to make that happen. And now that he has some alone time with Avery, he knows it’s his chance to get close to the other dragon.
Avery doesn’t understand what it means to completely belong to the clan, not yet at least, and what Tobit describes to him is different than anything he’s ever considered before. With Tobit there to guide him, they’ll come together to make the clan whole again.
Review: First, let me start by saying this is only 20 pages long so…
It’s essentially a vignette that moves the overall story arc forward but does not fit what I would call a short story. You must have read books one and two to follow this along as it takes our original Dragon Orphan/Slave/Whore Avery and mixes him with the other small dragon Tobit.
They’re all alone and Tobit feels Avery needs to mate with him in order to strengthen the clan bonds. They sort-of do but then they’re interrupted…
I think I have to abandon this series at this point.
Again, the writing is fine, but the story is now pretty disjointed and I’m not sure why this was even a separate story. I didn’t feel that Avery and Tobit had any chemistry and it felt awkward and definitely didn’t have any heart or feels in it.
I’ll give it a 3 of 5 stars and blame the length for my issues, but I think that I won’t be back to see how these guys fare in the future.
Overall Impression: It was good
