Synopsis: Keeping a hibernating dragon should have been a simple thing.

Should have been, but it was not. Apparently, nothing involving dragons was ever simple, at least not for Anne Elliot, junior Keeper to dragon Kellynch.

With the estate in debt, Anne’s father in denial, and the dragon’s treasure missing, Kellynch’s awakening is shaping up to be nothing short of a catastrophe. Not to mention, there was the pesky matter of her own broken heart and resentment against the old friend who had caused it.

Captain Frederick Wentworth had spent his life making something of himself in the Navy. With the war that kept him employed at an end and a small fortune in prize money, he found himself beached and at loose ends. What was he to do with himself now—take a wife like Laconia, his dragon Friend, insisted? Not when none compared to the woman who had broken his heart.

Working as an agent of the Blue Order, managing dragon matters across England, seemed a much better alternative. At least until investigating one such matter sent him directly in the path of Anne Elliot, the woman who had ruined him for all others.

Now a royal dragon rages, a sleeping dragon lurks, and too many treasures have gone missing. Can Anne and Wentworth lay aside resentment, pride, and heartbreak to prevent Kellynch’s awakening from ending in bloodshed—or worse?

Jane Austen meets Pern in a fantastical regency romp bound to delight readers of Jane Austen and Anne McCaffrey alike.

My Review: I loved this book. The character building was great. Wentworth never pursued Louisa and Laconia was pushing Wentworth to marry Anne. I really enjoyed how everybody who deserved it got their comeuppance. Even Lady Russell who got severely downgraded and sorely punished at the end. I especially loved the ending as Anne and Wentworth's problems are resolved in satisfying ways.

The Dragons of Kellynch and Kellynch: Dragon Persuasion are the Persuasion arc of Jane Austen's Dragons with the first four books centering around Pride and Prejudice. This book does have an ending which could be a stopping point for the series, however, I would love to see it continue. I have to say that I really enjoyed this sequel to The Dragons of Kellynch and I hope to read more books in this series in the future.

Rating: 4½ stars
