The FAA has been struggling with dragons attacking their planes, and hire Dane, a supernatural consultant, to look into the matter. What Dane finds in the woods is not quite the problem he expected: a group of dragon kits and their sick father.When he learns the real reason the family was in the woods, his case only grows more dangerous, and while Dane is plenty experienced at watching his own back, taking care of baby dragons and their handsome, distracting father almost makes danger look easy.

When Dane get called out to some dragons interfering with commercial flight paths, the last thing he expects to find is a gaggle of young dragons and their ailing father.

This surprising and delightful cosy paranormal mystery delivers found family (in a slightly more literal sense than usual) and intriguing characters. Gimme more!

This was an unusual story – in the best possible way. I expected Dane to be keen to be eager to return his home to its childfree state as quickly as possible. Instead, he get stuck right in, acting as foster father to his new charges.

There was romance in the story, but it didn't overwhelm or stand in the way of character development. ( )

This is a fun little novella that was a pleasure to read. It was entertaining and made me smile quite a bit. It’s only about 95 pages so it’s quite a short read.

Dane is the premier consultant in cases of a supernatural nature. So when a case of dragons tangling with planes comes up on the Federal Bureau of Supernatural Investigation’s radar, it’s referred to him. Dane immediately uses his magic to track down the dragons. His first encounter is an amusing one.. he discovers baby dragons in a forest! The reason that they are running amok seems to be a sick father Dragon!

Without a second thought, Dane gathers them all up and “magics” them to his home. He brings in a doctor and a friend to help with the kits. His house rather quickly becomes chaotic! Each of the kits has a very different personality with individual quirks. This was what made this book most enjoyable for me!

Lumie is an odd little toddler dragon who seems to be able to break through any magical wards and boundaries. Nickel is a little fighter and is fiercely protective of his father! Mercury – the adult dragon is very ill with dragon fever and as he recovers it becomes clear that things in their family are not what they initially seem!

There’s a bigger mystery within this novella… and I’m not going to spoil it for you. Suffice to say there’s a lot more going on than one dragon family simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

There is a queer relationship in this novella It begins very subtly and is quite sweet.

All in all, this was enjoyable and there’s another installment coming! ( )

My love for everything dragon isn’t exactly a secret, so it was clear I’d pick up this book. What with the blurb mentioning dragons as a problem for the FAA, a supernatural consultant called in to help track and solve the issue, and a bunch of cute dragon kits out to create the kind of chaos and mayhem only children can come up with, this was bound to be an interesting story. And boy, did it deliver on all the important points for me. The alternate reality Mell Eight has created here is fascinating with all kinds of supernatural beings out of the woodwork and struggling for their right to live among humans. There are threats, a nefarious plot, mysterious men struggling to contain their attraction for each other, and a great mix of funny and suspenseful moments. All of it is woven into a captivating tale that had me entertained from beginning to end.

Dane is a Supernatural Consultant of quite some renown and powers that only gradually pop up, so to speak, as he needs them. The type of being he turns out to be is very rare, but I am not going to tell you what he is since that would be a huge spoiler. I have to admit I was surprised, but looking back, I shouldn’t have been – the hints are all there. Dane agrees to find the dragons causing the problems for the FAA, but what he finds is very different from what he expected. On top of that, some things just don’t add up, and he begins to suspect something is very wrong.

Dane doesn’t hesitate to bring everyone back to his house thinking to get the dragon’s father, Mercury, cured and to send them on their way. Since Dane is a bit of a loner, he is somewhat overwhelmed when all the dragon kits he rescued swarm his house and settle down in what looks to be a pretty permanent way. But the danger threatening them is still out there, and Dane needs all his wits, some dragon magic, and lots of determination to make sure everyone is safe.

The romance with Mercury is slow but hot, and Dane is distracted by the quickly healing Mercury more than once. These two men aren’t very demonstrative, but their fire for each other burns deep and true. Even each man’s insecurity about being “enough” for the other can’t stop them falling for each other. The focus of the story is on all the action and adventure, as well as the super-cute kits, with the romance bubbling quietly in the background. Quite a nice mix!

If you like action/adventure stories of the supernatural kind, if a touch of romance is enough to keep your interest, and if you’re looking for a read that is as sweet and cute as it is suspenseful and imaginative, then you will probably like this novella as much as I did. I think it’s fantastic and can’t wait for the next volume in the series!
