This was a swift read but could have been shortened. I wills say, when Jean Luc details the steps to making love *swoons* "Step one is the birth of an idea . . ." worth it just for that!

Eight Rules huh? More like one rule and a whole bunch of ancillary actions required to support that rule.

I mentioned before that this gave me the same vibe as GA Aiken's Dragon Kin books and I stand by it. Heroine who isn't a pushover, hero who is at pains to prove he is reliable and worthy of the heroine, a lot of banter, friendships and a ludicrous plot designed to fail...

I loved it all.

Some was repetitive - Gwen was a little to over fond of talking herself into circles and dear sweet stars if one more person mentioned how afeared folk were of those born into the Cursed Dragon Clans I'd offer myself up as a sacrifice.

Having not read the other two books I was a little lost when it came to details important to Gwen's sisters Luciana and Brigitte various romantic struggles as well as who the holy hell "The Chameleon" was, but overall this book stood well on it's own.

The various side characters rounded out the cast - Dimitri, Aleksi, Annika, Margosha and my personal favorite Olenka (she's unrepentantedly delightful and loyal) as well as Nissa and Karlan. The villains were....ok in their way. Romak was hardly worth noticing and Fafnir turned out to have such pedestrian aspirations.

I did side eye some things - Sparks did some truly acrobatic things with the plot to keep Gwen for guessing Silas' secret too quickly and some of the story elements didn't add up (the War with the elves for instance) though I'm fairly sure the next book will focus on the elves so it might make sense once I have both sides of the War.

In all I greatly enjoyed this book and while I won't go backwards to read the two I missed (not yet anyhow) I do look forward to the next ones.

When a Dragon Falls by Kerrelyn Sparks
Embraced series #7. Fantasy romance. Best read as part of the series. Though it’s marked as #4, it is actually #7 across two different publishers. It reads as a conclusion and includes couples and descendants from all the prior books.
Princess Lenishka of the Norveshka kingdom is the only female dragon shifter ever born. To protect herself and show her strengths to the kingdom, Lennie has been trained as a soldier. She knows she will need to mate one of the single male dragons to ensure the continuation of her family line. Her main goal is to help destroy the Brotherhood of the Sun since they threaten all the lands.
Bran Morris was brought to the monastery when he was very young and punished by whip each year as the two moons embraced. After Master Greer killed Bran’s brother, all Bran wants is to seek revenge and kill Greer. But he also fears that will make him a monster. One night when Bran was spying as a Raven, he saw Lennie as she was sleeping and he fell in love. When Bran is injured five months later, he thinks Lennie is an Angel and he declares his love.

The kingdoms battle against the Brotherhood and once Lennie has confirmed that Bran is not one of the bad guys, they become close and entangled as they track Greer. Secrets between the two cause problems as they typically do but their faith in each other was sweet and tender. As the other kingdoms join the fight, we revisit with the primary heroes and heroines from the previous books and their now grown children. It was heartwarming knowing couples became families.
Bran and Lennie have hurtles and opposition to overcome but it’s so clear they want to be together.
A wonderful addition to the Embrace world.

I received a copy of this from NetGalley and the publisher. I also bought a copy to share.

This book continues with the ongoing EMBRACED BY MAGIC series by focusing on the main couple and secondary characters in a quest to rescue family members and stop the encroaching evil of the Brotherhood. The main couple first withhold significant information about themselves, but when the truth is revealed, their relationship grows stronger. With so many things that keeps them apart, how can the main couple get their happy ending?

This is another addition to this particular Kerrelyn Sparks series. The series continues with the children of the original cast of the first few books in the series; though the book provides relevant information about the series, it would be best to read the whole series to get an image of world created by the author. This book has a unique cast of characters and includes some romantic relationships, though the story focused on the romance between the heroine and the hero. The main couple goes through their own growth, individually and together. Though I enjoyed the book, the story did have instances in which the progression was slower than in other parts. It would also be nice to add a bit more details in certain areas of the story, a personal preference of mine. Overall, a solid addition to the EMBRACED BY MAGIC series and I look forward to reading more from the author in the future.

** Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the review copy. All opinions and thoughts in the review are my own. **
