From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the final novella featuring Pia and Dragos…
Pia’s latest pregnancy has become a daily challenge, her relationship with Dragos strained with argument. That hasn’t stopped them from achieving a compromise and traveling to Las Vegas to celebrate their friend Rune’s wedding to his mate Carling.
From the moment they arrive, the trip goes awry. Death walks in Vegas, and Pia is kidnapped as an ancient enemy makes a move to destroy the Great Beast once and for all.
But the Great Beast has other plans.
On Planet Dragos everything goes the way he arranges it—unless someone decides to cross him, and God help them then, because he doesn’t know how to back down, and he doesn’t ever, ever let up….
On Planet Dragos, everything goes the way he arranges it – unless you decide to cross him, and God help you then, because he doesn’t know how to back down, and he doesn’t ever, ever let up.
Thea Harrison’s Planet Dragos is the final (sob!) novella from Dragos’ and Pia’s points-of-view. If you are new to this series, Dragos and Pia have been the Elder Races’ reigning power couple ever since they launched the addictive series with Dragon Bound way back in 2011! I can’t believe it’s been that long as it seems like yesterday. I still happy-dance anytime Thea releases any books or snippets of news regarding the couple. While Thea has said that the two won’t be featured in any new adventures, she has shared that they may still make appearances in future books as supporting characters. (Thank you, Thea.)
First of all, if you are new to the series, I would strongly suggest that you read Dragos’ and Pia’s story in order, before diving into Planet Dragos. Actually, if you are looking for a binge read, the entire series is fantastic.
As this tale ensues, Pia is very pregnant. She is cranky, depressed and experiencing serious pregnancy-related medical issues. Regardless, Dragos and Pia with their entourage venture to Las Vegas for Rune’s and Carling’s wedding. When nefarious supers with a long-held grudge, kidnap both Pia and Carling, Dragos goes berserk. The entire world is placed in danger because Dragos aka ‘the Great Beast’ will leave no stone unturned in finding and rescuing his mate and exacting revenge.
Following please find a few favorite quotes from Planet Dragos:
She turned to Dragos. “I’m sorry I’m so crabby.”
His eyes gleamed in a subtle smile. “You’re very pregnant,” he told her. “And as you are well aware, I’ve read several books about pregnancy. I’ve decided to consider you somewhat insane until the baby is born.”
In that moment, there was nothing sweeter than the taste of his prey’s name on his lips.
Planet Dragos is an exciting, action-packed, fast-paced and emotional, potent, must-read punch for fans. It’s a gripping story laced with sweet and hot scenes and peppered with laugh-out-loud moments. Previous cast and couples come together to assist Dragos and Rune recover their mates making the story rock even more. Even though I’m quite sad to know that we won’t be eavesdropping on Dragos’ and Pia’s passionate romantic vignettes or accompanying them in any new risky perils in the future, I’m more-than-excited about the new direction for the Wyr and Elder Races as this novella forges a new path for the series with fresh, but familiar characters. If you enjoy paranormal urban fantasies that are guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat with excellent storylines and well-written characters, Thea’s Elder Races series should be on your must-read-soon list!
