Matthew is taking a break before going to university, working at a cafe in Seattle. He¿s expecting to spend a few months meeting people, having fun and generally living it up before hitting the books. Then he meets Drakon, a passionate, masculine man with an animal magnetism that draws Matthew in. As Matthew moves in with Drakon on his country estate and slowly finds himself cut off from the world around him, he begins to wonder if that animal magnetism is more literal than figurative and if Drakon would be more aptly named Dragon.

There are a few shifter books I have read where the character’s animal side is quite brutal and either equal to or stronger than the human part. This is one of those stories, only the dragon shifter’s secret is far worse than I expected. It put me in the same kind of dilemma as Matthew, the human waiter-hoping-to-be-a-student who falls for Drakon, the dragon shifter who is destined to be his mate. My problem is the conflict between understanding the concept of the food chain - meaning that some animals are meant to be eaten – and seeing the consequences applied to human beings. The whole thing seems entirely logical when I look at it from a distance, but at the same time I can’t help but be involved much more closely exactly because I am a human.

Matt is working as a waiter, intending to go to college once he has sown his wild oats. He likes to dance, is good at flirting, and is entirely unprepared for his life to change when he meets Drakon. After Drakon saves him from a beating, Matt is tempted to stay with him in the grand mansion he calls a home, and gradually gets lured in by Drakon’s spell. Don’t get me wrong: Matt is a willing participant in what they get up to – and they get up to a LOT of hot action. But Matt has no idea what the consequences will be if he stays – or that he never really had any choice but to stay.

As Drakon’s true nature slowly emerges, Matt has a tough time dealing with some of it. Yes, he feels loved and accepted, and is taken care of in every way. He loves Drakon deeply. But Matt also has to give up a lot – and that is much harder to accept. Making a choice is not really possible anyway, but it goes against the grain to have to accept things the way they are. The concept of free choice is something most humans believe in, and this story shows what it is like when that is taken away. Physically perfectly well off, Matthew’s emotional and mental state become his focus when trying to come to terms with his fate.

Even after considering what this story did to me, attempting to gain some distance and deciding whether I like it or not, I still don’t know what to think. I like the fact that Sean Michael wrote it this way: compelling, pulling me into accepting that Drakon is who he is, and not answering the question whether he is a good or a bad guy. I guess, like Matthew in the story, I have to just accept things the way they are. After all, “good” and “bad” are in the eye of the beholder. One thing is certain: this story is as scary as it is powerful!

If you like the tougher, more brutal side of shifters, if you’re ready to have your morality challenged, and if you’re looking for a read that will show you a very different world from what you assume is normal and right, yet make you think it might just be okay anyway then you will probably like this story. I still don’t know what to think – other than maybe “disturbing” - and that is an impressive result in its own right.

This is an original tale, and not the typical "shapeshifter" story. I liked the fact the Drakon is not a man who can change to a dragon. He is a dragon who also has a human form. He is primal and raw. He hunts, kills, mates. He's ancient and powerful. This contrasts brilliantly with the very modern Sean, who doesn't really understand what is happening until too late.

The butler is fabulous! He reminds me of Alfred from Batman. This book is well written and does include the trademark Sean Michael hot, HOT sex. I found the story was lacking somewhat in the "romance" department (hence 4 instead of 5 stars), but Drakon is not human so that is understandable. Highly recommended. ( )
