The first story, fierce and dying human warrior woman meets reclusive dragon shifter, was a bit disappointing. I kept checking my reading progress. The dragon's argumentative family's constant squabbling amongst his siblings and their royal parents' unconventional relationship kept a smile on my face. 3 stars.Strangely the second story was a prequel of the first, describing how the dragon parents got together and ascended to the royal throne. I much preferred this story. It was fast-paced, funny, with a poor excuse of a mother as the scheming villain. It also gave me a different perspective on parenting styles. 5 stars.Dragons are bloodthirsty and fierce creatures not be messed with. I like!
