When Prince Leon disappears, his people turn to the dragons for help. Nyle is the unlucky dragon tasked with finding Leon, a duty he dreads as it forces him into the confounding human world and far away from his collection of pretties.
Locating a missing prince should be a simple matter, but if Nyle has learned anything about humans since being forced among them, it’s that they needlessly complicate everything. When he finally locates the errant prince, however, what Nyle finds is a treasure worth all the complications—and worth protecting at any cost.
This isn’t my first book featuring dragons that I’ve read by Mell Eight. Just for the record, same author, totally different take on dragons. I adore the dragons in the Supernatural Consultant series. Its more contemporary setting is a modern take on young dragons and is a very family centered series. The Dragon’s Hoard has a more “old-world” feel and although Nyle is young by dragon standards, he’s been around for quite some time. The sense of family is totally different in Finding the Wolf as well. There’s a disconnect between the dragons which keeps them pretty much emotionally isolated. Which is one of the reasons why Leon becomes so important to Nyle. His hoard is full of his most treasured possessions and Leon quickly becomes the most treasured of all.
As in most of Mell Eight’s supernatural stories, there’s a mystery to be solved and evil to be conquered. I found myself getting wrapped up in the suspense even more than the growing romance between Leon and Nyle. Things are far from over by the end of Finding the Wolf. Leon and Nyle found their HEA, but readers are still left with questions about discoveries that were made. Since this is a series that’s been republished, we shouldn’t have to wait long for the next book in The Dragon’s Hoard series, Breaking the Shackles.
