Claim the Dragon

Expected publication: June 8th 2020 by Carina Press
To save her, he’ll sacrifice everything.
Born a dream reaper, Steele Ezo, a powerful half dragon, half human, is struggling to find his place in the Drakon hierarchy. He is ready to accept his fate until he realizes the next victim on the Reaper’s hit list is the sexy thief who’s caught his eye.
She’s supposed to die.
He’s forbidden to stop it.
But their inexplicable connection makes it impossible to step aside.
Abandoned by her family and abused by local enforcers, Ravyn Walsh lives life on her own terms. She’s created an underground sanctuary for the oppressed citizens of Burgess, and she needs funds to keep it running. When a lucrative job—stealing an ancient dagger—lands in her lap, she doesn’t hesitate, not even when a smoldering tattooed stranger attempts to stop her.
A dagger that can raise the dead is a powerful tool—one that could change the course of history. As they fight to keep the dagger out of the wrong hands, Ravyn will be forced to embrace the truth of her heritage, while Steele will find himself torn between saving a life that isn’t meant to be saved and denouncing the power he was born to wield.

This is the 2nd book in The Legion series by A.C. Arthur.
This paranormal series features a dream reaper who falls for a sexy thief he is supposed to keep his distance from.
I think this is one of those series that you really need more backstory to help it make sense to you. I was struggling to keep up with what was going on. But the overall story is very appealing. I loved the Steel Ezo and Ravyn characters. They made a perfect pair.
The whole magical dagger storyline was fascinating and kept me glued to the page even when I didn’t understand the Drakon hierarchy.
Definitely going to put book one on my reading list in the future!
If you like this type of book and want to read a good romantic paranormal suspense, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
