Book Review: Ancient Retribution by Katie Reus


Book Description

A dragon princess once lost…

Juniper hunts down the most dangerous criminals on her black ops missions—and she’s good at it. A dragon shifter who was raised by wolves, she doesn’t know her birth clan and gave up trying to find them a hundred years ago. Since The Fall, when rogue dragons razed half the planet, she’s spent her days hunting down supernaturals who think they can escape justice, delivering her own. During a dangerous mission, she falls into the claws of a sexy warrior dragon adjusting to the modern world—and from the start she knows she’s in trouble.

Is now found…

Dragon shifter warrior Zephyr doesn’t fit into this new world. He doesn’t feel like he fits in anywhere—until he meets Juniper and her crew. He knows from the moment he sees the sexy and brave female dragon that they’re destined to be together. Unfortunately, life just got a whole lot more complicated. Not only are they in the fight of their lives against an overwhelming enemy force, but she’s royalty and her long-lost clan has come to bring her home. Even as they fight side by side to save hundreds of humans, he knows that winning her heart will be the hardest and most pivotal battle he’s ever waged. Juniper doesn’t want to get mated, doesn’t trust anyone with her heart—but this is one battle Zephyr will never stop fighting.

Author note: Though part of a series, this book may be read as a stand-alone, complete with HEA.

My Review

Juniper and her friends are out making sure that the most dangerous of supernaturals are brought to justice. While out of one of their missions they come across another dragon shifter and help him close a door that should not be open. Juniper is also a dragon shifter who was given up when she was younger and she has no idea which clan she belongs to. She's never felt a pull to a male dragon like she does to this new guy. 

Zephyr was away for a long time and is just getting used to being around his brothers again. So when he comes across Juniper and her friends while he's trying to help keep everyone safe, he's feeling a pull to her like he's never felt before. But Juniper and her friends don't trust him right away. 

Zephyr goes back to where Juniper and her friends live and asks if he can join them in fighting the dangerous criminals. He wants to join the group so he can be closer to her while they get to know one another better. 

When new people show up to speak to Juniper, she gets the surprise of her life. That storyline was incredible. I won't say to much because I don't want to spoil anything for anyone but it brought a tear to my eyes more than once. 

I really liked watching Zephyr and Juniper get to know each other better and fall hard for each other. They really needed one another so it was great to see their relationship come together. I've really been enjoying this series and am excited to see who will get their story next. There are so many characters to choose from so it will be a surprise.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
