Book Review: Knock Down Dragon Out by Krystal Shannon

Book Description

Winter in Mystery, Alaska just got a whole lot hotter. Dragon shifters, lions, and tigers oh my!
An overwhelming need to get away from life—from grief—sent Naomi Parker on a trek through Alaska. Even though she was expecting to photograph some unique wildlife, she was NOT expecting a dragon. They don’t exist, right? Wrong. And a dragon who turns into a human? Even more unlikely.

A hot dragon prince... yeah, she's totally hallucinating. And when he won't leave her side, and their chemistry is off the charts, suddenly, it's a whole-new-world of fantasy and excitement, until it threatens to cost her everything…including her life.

Col has one mission: to kill the dragons who murdered the royal house of Li'Vhram—his family. But he wasn’t expecting to find his mate in the process. When a cute, curvy woman needs rescuing from the dragons he’s hunting, his senses go on high alert. She’s his mate. He’s sure. And he’ll do anything to make her his.

Knock Down Dragon Out is the first book in the new Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska series. It’s a full-length, standalone fantasy paranormal dragon-shifter romance story featuring a strong human female and an alpha male dragon prince from another world with a propensity for protecting and pleasuring his mate. Happily-ever-after and more guaranteed!

My Review

Col and some other shifters came through a portal from another dimension where shifters existed and they landed on Earth. Their world was destroyed by volcanoes and they barely got out alive. But not all the shifters get along and Col wants to kill the dragon shifters that killed his family back on his world. 

The dragon shifters he's after don't like him anymore than he likes them and have no problem showing him that. He's in the middle of a battle with the two dragon shifters when he spots a human female in the snow and knows right away that she's his mate. He had a choice, continue fighting or leave the fight for now and take care of his mate. He chose his mate. 

Naomi wakes up with amnesia but she's very much attracted to Col right away. After she realizes what he is and why he's going after the dragons, she wants to help him. I really liked how she was able to help him and it sure was great how she also was able to show him that helping some of the other shifters was a good idea. They all became their own little family which I really think they needed. 

There was enough action, drama, romance and back story to really keep me entertained.

I read the second book in this series a while back and knew I had to go back and read the first book in this Soulmate Shifters in Mystery, Alaska series. I'm glad that I did because this book was just as good as the other book that I read. This book was free when I got it so check and see if it still is. If you'd like to read my review for the second book, I'm Not Lion To You, just click the link.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
