Dragon Magic Reviews
I loved everything about this book. It is so hard to find a good LGBT+ fantasy novel that reads like an epic fantasy and this book not only manages to do that, but is also very inclusive while it does so.
I love megan derr's writing so much!!! I loved reading this book, and i adored all the characters. my favorites were Mahzan and binhadi!!
Bound on accident!! I'm a sucker for this trope
This was a really enjoyable read! I loved the way there characters were pulled together, first by coincidence, then by plot, and finally by their growing fondness for each other (or irritation). The magic system was interesting, but not super inventive. I think this book used the poly ship to its advantage, and the trans characters were handled expertly. I definitely feel in love with the characters as they themselves were falling in love with each ...more
Rating: 4 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The beginning started a bit slow for me. Once the story got going, it was very hard to put down. I really liked all the main characters.

Binhadi was the one that it was hardest to get to know, but once we get insight to his character he became much more sympathetic.

What a cool story! Megan Derr's stories are always a good read, but I really enjoyed her take on magic in this book. Excellent job!

Those four men are Mahzan, the King's Jester, quick witted and with a sharp tongue; Sule, a young commander with a fiery temper; Cemal, a cheerful priest with a bloo ...more
Is it just me, or have Megan Derr's books been getting more and more 'out there' with respect to character devices? I'm awaiting the next book, presumably about an asexual intersex dolphin who finds romantic connections with xer demisexual gay-for-you mate along with a pansexual tree. I'll pass on that one, too.
I’ve long been fan of Megan Derr’s writing and this book is another to my collection of my favorites. I admit I was curious how she’ll handle four protagonists all falling in love, but it was magical.
The story was compelling, with it’s seemingly simple goal that took twists and turns. It felt like I was playing an RPG and I loved it, even if I saw some of the plot twists coming, I still enjoyed the ride immensely.
I adored all four of the protagonists, always looking forward to the next chapter a ...more
