Aqua and Rios are bored, which is always a recipe for disaster. They decide that taking a trip to visit Nickel would be a ton of fun, so they hop on a boat and go sailing down the river. Niagara Falls separates the two kits from their destination, not that they're aware of that fact, and their fun adventure quickly turns into a desperate fight for survival.

 

The Delight

Two teen dragon kits get bored and go on an adventure that brings a bit more than excitement for one of them.  Fun, light, and a sweet romance in this latest installment of the urban fantasy Supernatural Consultant series.

Review

Dragon Adventure is an in between short story that follows a few years the events of Dragon Soldier, book five, and tackles the story of a side character from the book three adventure.

Rios is a teen dragon and along with his brother, he is bored when his adopted parent tries to get him to sit in on adult stuff and take responsibilities around the home.  Loved seeing him come into his own.  An encounter with a non-dragon supernatural, drug-runners, the Canadian Coast Guard, and a clear insight into what he wants to do for his future career was a nicely developed piece.  This is a light and quick read, but was perfect for that moment where I wanted that tone of story and didn’t have a lot of time while still getting a full and complete adventure in a favorite series.  Looking forward to Aqua’s story now that Rios is settled.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
  • Sounds like a fun little addition to the series 🙂

    • Definitely a cutie! I look forward to his twin’s story in a few weeks. 🙂

  • I sometimes love short pieces like this. I wouldn’t have given this one a second though based on the cover but it sounds like a great series.

    • Yeah, the first books cover is the cutest of the series I think. I do love a short and fun one now and then between my other reads. Thanks, Carole!
