Dragon Rising by Jaime Rush Review

Angel wings tattooLyra’s father has gone missing and it is up to her to find him. In Dragon Rising by Jaime Rush, the few clues left by him lead Lyra to the mysterious Archer, a descendant of fallen angels. Archer finds himself drawn to the fiery, determined dragon Lyra but if there is one thing Archer knows, it is that he needs to avoid emotional entanglements at all costs.

If I have one complaint about Dragon Rising, it is that it is too short at only 100 pages. Rush’s world is very different from most dragon/shifter novels and was intriguing in it’s different take on dragons, fallen angels and paranormal creatures. I flew through Dragon Rising and immediately went looking for the rest of the series, to my disappointment the first full-length novel won’t be out until December. Rush’s characters were entertaining, intriguing and kept me captured from the first word. Archer was the sexy, strong silent hero but Lyra’s sarcastic wit was a fabulous counter-point to him. It is not every author who can convey sarcasm well but Rush does it with seeming ease. It isn’t necessary to read the first book in the series (Dragon Mine) but I recommend it. I am eagerly looking forward to reading the rest of The Hidden series.
