Trystan is an unchosen angel—shunned by society, bullied, and without a future. In a hidden well, Trystan discovers a carving of a dragon, who were once the commanders of demons and now believed extinct. But Trystan learns the carving doesn’t depict an ordinary dragon. Stories tell that millennia ago, the great dragon Asagoroth and his demon army nearly conquered the three realms but was killed by the five elders. The powerful angels combined their life forces to cast a spell, sacrificing their lives.
But history is full of falsehoods. The five elders only managed to imprison the dragon, and Asagoroth had cast his own spell—one of releasement. It only needs the blood of an angel to liberate him from his cage….
Asagoroth, enemy of angels, conqueror of realms, is free. But even as the angels prepare for war, the great dragon surprises them with an ultimatum: hand over the angel who awakened him or face annihilation.
“So different and yet… they seemed to match each other. Two sides of the same coin. Perfect opposites.”
Angels and Demons are meant to be enemies. They represent the Good and the Bad, Pure and Evil. So, what happens when an Angel and a Demon fall in love???
Trystan is an unchosen in the perfect world of the angels. Except his sister, none of his siblings or his parents has ever made him feel wanted or loved. Being an unchosen, Trystan have to live his life without a mate or Love. He is tired of his existence as a disgrace to his family and to the whole angel community. He wants to belong, to be appreciated and most of all to be loved. When Trystan chances upon a strange stone carving inside the well of his city, he is unaware that his life is about to change forever. His blood awakens the fearsome Asagoroth, the mighty dragon leader of the demons who was imprisoned during the Great Battle a millennium ago. And now the Dragon wants him. To save his kind, Trystan agrees to go with the Demon Lord. But that’s not the only reason. Trystan feels an unexplained but intense connection to Asagoroth. The mighty dragon loves him and Trystan though scared, can’t deny his attraction to the dragon. But they have forces working against them to keep them apart. Will Trystan get his HEA with his Dragon??? Read to find out.
“I missed you,” Asagoroth said. “I longed for you. To hear you, touch you, to become one with you again. Your elegance and your softness. How I need you.”
This read was about two star crossed lovers and they get a happy ending, for which I was very happy.
Trystan and Asagoroth are eternal mates and they are meant to be together but they are from two different worlds. Angels and Demons are eternal enemies, so falling in love and living happily ever after is not in the cards for Trystan and Asagoroth. They have to fight for their love and also attempt to bring their two worlds together.
“I am your dragon, dear angel. You lead, and I shall follow.”
I liked the rendition of “How the Earth or the Earthlings came into being” in this read. The Angels and Demons are opposites but they are also tied to each other by a bond created by the Lord himself. There is one Angel created for each Demon and when they finally come together to mate rather than to fight, the mortal Earthlings are created, who populate the Middle Realm.Trystan and Asagoroth are meant to lead their people to the path of Love rather than Hate.
Trystan and Asagorath’s love was intense and beautiful. Trystan is drawn to Asa from the beginning. He knows that he is reincarnation of Asa’s lover but he is unsure of Asa’s affection for him. Asa has missed his lover and mate for an eternity and now when he has Trystan in his arms, he is ready to do anything to convince Trystan of his powerful Love for him. So what ensues is some intense love making, which were pretty HOT. Asagoroth is a Dragon with horns and scales and with a breath of fire, so you must be wondering how the intimacy is possible. I won’t tell youwink Just know that they made a pretty scorching couple.
“Trystan, all my power, all my strength, I give to you. They are yours to command. I am yours. That was a decision I made a millennium ago.”
I enjoyed this book. It was a great Fantasy read with a sweet and passionate romance between a delicate Angel and a fire breathing, charismatic Dragon, who will do anything for his Mate. It is very nicely written and I did not get bored for a second. There are no religious preaching in this book, just a romance between two completely opposite beings who happens to be an Angel and a Demon.
“We are meant to be together. Always and forever. You are my angel. I am your dragon.”
