With Rios happily mated and planning an entire future, Aqua can't help but feeling left out. The brother that was always been his chief playmate and best friend is going to leave him behind, which isn't at all acceptable. The obvious answer is to leave first, so Aqua packs a bag to go on an adventure. But this adventure isn't anything like his last one and the chances of him returning home alive dwindle every moment.

The Delight

After Rios had his adventure and found his mate and his life direction, poor Aqua was feeling left on the outside looking in.  Uncle Willy wisely sets the dragon kit on his own adventure and, of course, a wild and quirky dragon adventure ensues.

Review

Dragon Home like the previous story Dragon Adventure are part of the overall Supernatural Consultant series.  One could get away with reading it in a pinch as a standalone, but it really works best as far as understanding the world and knowing the additional characters to read it in order.

This is a short and fast read, but like the rest of the series it was humorous, cute, and heartwarming with its strong sense of family, relationships, and a pinch of action to keep it interesting.

Now while this one was short and fast, it also took the time to continue building the lore of the dragons and took things to the desert where Aqua could meet another supernatural species and more of his own kind in a different situation and setting.

I enjoyed this side story in the series about one of the precocious dragon kit twins growing up and coming into his own.  I look forward to what is to come and hope there are further adventures for them with Dane, Mercury, and the other dragons.

My thanks to Less Than Three Press for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

The following two tabs change content below.
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 quick read.

    • I was. They always leave me smiling. 🙂

  • This is a young adult m/m book? I know you said it was a side book, but was it a romance as well? As you can probably tell, I know nothing about this series, but I am glad that you mostly enjoyed it!

    • It is, but it isn’t. This is part of an adult series, but these two tweeny stories about a couple of the teens so its a very mild romance with a little adventure.

  • I might pick up this series eventually. These always sound fun when you review them. I am glad to hear this was a good one :). It sounds neat how even though it was a short read it continued building the world. Great review!

    • They are a great deal of fun. I enjoy each new installment. This one and the one before it are on the shorter end, but I still enjoyed encountering new paranormals and an adventure with the dragon twins.
