I read Carnal twilight, the prequel, a few months ago and didn’t enjoy it. I’m happy to say the first book, In Search of Pride faired much better. The longer length really showed what the authors could create. It’s a fantasy world filled with rich description. Ciara is a great character. She’s a dragon with as much fierceness as the guys in this book but also a sweetness when it comes to Brenn. I really like how their story plays out. There’s some angst, lots of action and who doesn’t love dragons?! There are some slow spots that makes the story drag but overall, I enjoyed this story. The romance/sex aspect is good but written in an overly simple style and it is not as hot as I hoped it would be. The author also introduces us to some great secondary characters that I hope get their own story!
