I think this book is better than Heart of the Dragon.
It stands out better, perhaps because AMD is written in first person and because Mia has Attitude. I do wish Mia wasn't "I look like a delicate little thing but I'm not" though.
I thought this was going to be a fun and sassy book, which it's not. That's a good thing, because I like darker books like this one much better.
I've read many first person romances where the other half seems two-dimensional next to the one in whose POV the book is written in. Doesn't happen here.
Kyrin is his own person, not just the guy the author wants Mia to hook up with. I wonder if his sister is going to get her own story. I'd like that.
And I like how Gena dealt with the soulmate/destiny/we're meant to be forever thing–read the book to find out. Different, but good.
This series is something to look forward to if you're into light SF romance.
