DRAGOS GOES TO WASHINGTON by Thea HarrisonDragos Goes to Washington by Thea Harrison
Series: Elder Races #8.5
Published by Self Published Genres: Paranormal

Pia and Dragos will have to leave their home for Washington, D.C. soon as all of the Elder Races leaders are coming to meet with the U.S. government due to the recent actions that have affected not only the races, but also humans.  Dragos isn’t what you would call a political pundit, but he is the person who will watch out for his Wyr.  But, before they leave, Pia expresses a heartfelt want to Dragos, and he is more than willing to try and give her what she wants.  As a matter of fact, he is looking forward to it.

 

Once in Washington, D.C., both Pia and Dragos are instantly swept up into the events taking place.  At this first event, Dragos and Pia learn just how divided the government is on those who are against the races and those who are willing to listen.  To say that Dragos is unhappy is not even close to his feelings. and the next event is to be held in their home.  Pia is working her hardest to make sure that this dinner is the best it can be, but her body just isn’t helping at all.  Pia can’t figure out what is going on with her. but she isn’t going to let anything destroy her and Dragos’ first important dinner party.  That is. until murder happens and it will take quick action by both Pia and Dragos to make sure that none of the Wyr or the other races are seen as being behind the death of the spouse of a prominent politician.  You would think that would be enough for one dinner party, but it seems that fate has yet more surprises in store for Pia and Dragos.

 

Pia and Dragos are in action again as the Wyr super couple in Dragos Goes to Washington.  I have loved Pia and Dragos since I read their first book and each book just gives me more to love.  This quick slice into their lives is no different.  I was happily surprised at Pia’s request and not surprised at all in Drago’s response.  After all, Pia and Dragos’ love just springs from the pages every time they are together.  I loved watching as Dragos learns just what he and the other Race leaders are facing once they get to Washington, D.C., and how he took it.  The events at their dinner party definitely kept me guessing on who was behind them and if Pia or Dragos could act fast enough to remove any threat to themselves and the other Races.  If you love Pia and Dragos, or any of the other Races in this world, then you really don’t want to miss Dragos Goes to Washington.   And, if you are anything like me, you will be wanting the next novella in this mini-series immediately after turning the last page here.

Beluviel was the consort for the Elven High Lord for more years that most can remember.  Now, with is death after a horrible attack on the Elven home, Beluviel is trying to help give her people some form of comfort and normalcy.  You would think that after so many years, Beluviel would be in deep morning for her consort, however, things were not as they seemed with the couple who ruled.  What Beluviel does grieve, and has for many years, was the relationship and attraction that never had a chance to grow and deepen.

 

Graydon has been a Wyr Sentinel for many, many years and just recently he became the First Sentinel. Graydon has always enjoyed doing his job and protecting the Wyr and others who needed it.  But the one thing that Graydon has missed is the woman who might have been so much more than a lover and who he had to walk away from two hundred years ago.  It always hurt watching other Wyrs with mates knowing he has to stay away from the one woman who wants to forget everything when she was around—Beluviel.

 

It all began two hundred years ago when Beluviel and Graydon raced to try and help someone from making a huge mistake.  Along the way, their attraction bloomed into passion and Beluviel and Graydon thought to make plans together.  Love might have been in the air, but it never had a chance as Djinn Malphas held a card neither Beluviel nor Graydon could quash, and they had to separate.  Now, time has come to play hardball with Malphas before he can play that trump card and ruin many, many lives for both those of the Elder Races and human world.  Graydon has waited for his chance to end Malphas’ hold and have the chance with Beluviel that was denied them.  They both know it’s going to be risky and deadly dangerous, even with a plan and so many powerful friends to help.  The plan is set and the players are in position; the night is about to explode and the question is just who will win this final high stakes game and who won’t?

 

The Wyr and Elven have had a feud forever, or should I say some of the Elven have had a feud with Dragos. Now that two lovers have found each other again, the relationship is about to go under a drastic change.  Beluviel and Graydon gave up so much to save someone, and now they will fight not only for that same person, but also for themselves in Shadow’s End.  I knew even before I read this story that Graydon and Beluviel had some type of history, but I didn’t even guess what it was or what had happened.  My respect for Graydon grew as I realized just what he had lost that day many years ago, and how he quietly and stealthily worked to get it back.  I only knew about Beluviel by the little she was in the books as the Elven consort.  Learning about why she put up with her life for so long told me that this was one strong and formidable woman.  I really loved watching as Beluviel and Graydon worked together, both originally and now, to end the hold that Malphas had on them and others.  The final battle was all I could have hoped for, and yet it was so bittersweet by the time it was over.  However, I have to say that the joy and love between Garydon and Beluviel turned that bittersweet feeling into a sigh of fulfillment by the time I turned the final page.

 

Shadow’s End is crammed packed with emotion, both good and bad.  It also gave Graydon the mate that I was hoping for him—yes I freely admit that Graydon is one of my favorite Sentinels.  The Elder Races have truly been changed with this book, and I for one can’t wait to see just how these changes unroll as the series goes on.  There is so much that I just want to shout out and chat about, but since I can’t, I just have to say that Shadow’s End is a major Recommended Read.  Not only will you not want to miss Graydon and Beluviel’s journey to mating, but you will also want to see the other things that will affect this world forever.

Julian is the Nightkind King after taking over as the heir from his sire. Julian trusts very few people, so he isn’t really surprised when an attempt to over throw him happens.  What does surprise him is who is behind the actions and just how the coup is taking place.  Now, two of the few people that Julian let into his life have been harmed: one, his right hand man, and the other, the woman he all but gave his heart to.

 

Melisande (“Melly”) is the heir to the Light Fae Queen, and she is a mostly light hearted person.  When Melly is kidnapped by someone she considered a friend, her first reaction is that it must have been a mistake or a way to get her mother’s attention.  However, as Melly’s personal nightmare goes on, she understands that not only was her taking intentional, but that it has absolutely nothing to do with her mother.  No, she has been taken to be bait to the one man that Melly thought she could love with her entire heart until, for some reason, he turned her away without hearing her side.

 

Julian was about to start his hunt of the instigator of coup for his crown when he is contacted by the Light Fae Queen and then discovers that Melly has been taken.  Julian might not believe Melly ever loved him now, but he will do anything to protect her and save her from the mad woman who has her—even give himself up.  The nightmare just gets worse as Melly finds out that Julian is willing to surrender himself for her safety.  Teamwork is how Julian and Melly escape and make it to Julian’s home, only to discover that the coup has taken another turn that could lead to yet more innocent deaths.  During this time, when it should be the darkest time for both Julian and Melly, they discover that their love is stronger than ever, and then they discover the betrayal which led to the misunderstandings and hurt feelings.  In one drastic day and night, Julian and Melly find a way to not only permanently end the coup and stop anyone who might think to restart it, and they also deal with any barrier to their love forever.

 

Royalty comes in many shapes and sizes when you are dealing with the Elder Races.  Two of these examples are the Nightkind King, an old Roman soldier, and a Light Fae Princess and heir to the crown, an actress who loves life—not exactly a twosome you would expect to be a couple.  Yet, Julian and Melly will prove just how wrong you are in Midnights Kiss.  I wondered just how the attempted coup would go on after reading the prior book in the series where it began, and I also wondered just how Julian would react.  Vampires are long-lived, and you would think they would remember that Romans took over the majority of the known world during their time for a good reason.  I wasn’t at all surprised by how Julian took the coup and the harm to his friends, yet even I was surprised at how he reacted when Melly was drawn into the danger. Even more enjoyable was watching as a person who seemed like a lightweight prove just how well she was matched to her lover, Julian.  I loved watching as they not only overcame the betrayal that tore them apart years ago, but also seamlessly teamed up to kick butt and take names and heads to defeat any and all risk to the Nightkind.  Even better, I had to smile as yet another relationship was given the chance to heal for Julian at the end of the book.  Midnights Kiss is full of action, danger, and passion almost from the first page to the last. For me, it was a story that I read in one sitting just because I couldn’t stop turning the pages.  I will bet that you will love Julian and Melly by the time you turn the last page. I know I did.

Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon.Dragos's son Liam Cuelebre (a.k.a. Peanut) is springing into existence, reminiscent of the first of the Elder Races who were born at the beginning of the world. At just six months of age, he has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. He can read, write in complete sentences, and his math skills are off the chart.A white dragon in his Wyr form, Liam also holds more Power than almost anyone else. In an effort to give him a taste of normality, no matter how fleeting, his parents Pia and Dragos enroll him in first grade.They hope school will help teach Liam how to relate to others, a vital skill that will help him control his growing Power. But school has a surprising number of pitfalls, and relating to others can be a tricky business.When a classmate is threatened, Liam must quickly learn self-control, how to rein in his instincts, and govern his temper, because there's no doubt about it--he is fast becoming one of the most dangerous creatures in all of the Elder Races.

Liam Cuelebre (better known as Peanut) is growing up by leaps and bounds and he may only be a few months old but he is the size of a 5 year old and just as curious and mischievous as any other child that age.  His father is the most powerful man in world and his mother might not seem as powerful, but Liam knows she would move mountains to keep him safe.  But none of that is on his mind right now, Liam has a huge adventure because he is going to school – first grade to be exact.  Liam knows that he is also powerful, even as young as he is, yet he knows that he needs to takes these next steps as just a very intelligent young boy and he really attempts to do that.

 

However, it seems that the gods are testing him to see just how together Liam is this young because he faces several hardships his very first day.  The biggest lesson that Liam learns in the next few hours is that bullies can come in several sizes, guises and ages.  He also learns that there are some battles he can handle and then there are some he needs to bring his big gun back up – his parents.  Liam also learns several other things in a few short hours and most of all he learns just how much his parents love him and what they will do to protect him.

 

Power comes in many forms and one little guy just might become the most powerful being around, well if you don’t count his father, and just like everyone who enters life as a child he has many lessons to learn.  Liam begins his journey to learn all of those lessons in Peanut Goes to School.  I have to say that I fell in love with Liam when he was still becoming a being and that love has only grown as I have seen Liam deal with so many things at such a young age.  This time I watch as Liam learned just what bullies are and that they can come in so many shapes and sizes.  I cheered as Liam proved his dominance to some and knew just when he needed to call for his back up.  And I don’t mean Dragos, I’m talking about Pia here.  Liam also had me smiling because I can see that he is going to be one heck of a handful for not only his parents, but also those who are trying to protect him and let’s not even get into the parents of any of the girls that he will charm.  Peanut Goes to School is a lovely adventure that will have you wanting to just hug Liam to pieces and fist bump his parents on a job well done.

In the latest story of the Elder Races, two mates face their deadliest challenge yet—each other…

Pia and Dragos’s magical young son Liam (the Peanut), is growing at an unprecedented rate, and if that isn't enough, he is also
exhibiting new, and unpredictable, magical gifts. To protect him, the concerned parents decide to move to upstate New York.

Both Dragos and Pia relish the idea of leaving behind the city. They finally have the space to indulge their Wyr side, and Liam can grow in safety. It’s a breath of fresh air—literally—but their idyllic situation is shattered when Dragos is injured in a freak accident.

Stripped of his memory and bereft of Pia’s taming influence, there’s nothing holding back Dragos’s darkest side. And in order to restore her family and save her mate, Pia must confront the most powerful menace in Elder Races history.

It’s going to take more than a penny to fix this… (31,250 words)

 

Pia and Dragos have decided to permanently move to their estate in upper New York for a safer place in which to raise Liam.  They are looking forward to the great outdoors and the wildlife that will surround them and allow them to be able to enjoy their other self also.  But to move the headquarters of the Wyr and Dragos’ business there, a lot of construction needs to be completed.  A freak accident one afternoon when Dragos goes to see the progress of the construction, will take the Wyr to the edges of drastic change and will require every ounce of love, strength and compassion that Pia has in her body.  Pia is not about to let anyone destroy her life with Dragos and Liam, not even Dragos himself and she is more than willing to fight for her husband and mate and their son.  Pia might be one of the most gentle Wyr around but all the Wyr are about to learn just how strongly she can fight for those she loves.

 

Pia and Dragos are about to start the second part of their life together outside of New York until the largest barrier they have confronted presents itself in Pia Saves The Day.  All I can say to begin with is that I loved this story and how it grew the storyline of Dragos, Pia and Liam.  I always knew that Pia would fight for her new life and her love of Dragos and Liam, but I never expected that she would have a chance to prove it so soon.  I really loved how Pia proved just how practical she could be just after the accident and then proved her love by confronting the very thing that could tear the family totally apart.  The very best thing in my eyes about this story is that while it moved things along, it did not tie up all the loose threads and pretend like it was all perfect when it was over.  Now I can’t wait to see how the results of this brief interlude will be handled as things go forward in the Elder Races books.  Pia Saves The Day will have you cheering for both Pia and Dragos by the end and just wanting to hug Liam (Peanut) after this latest harrowing adventure.
