Dreaming of Dragons - T.A. Chase Mordred is more than a self-absorbed, petulant prick and anyone who says otherwise has fallen for his PR hook, line and sinker.George, well what do you expect from the patron saint of England, yeah...he's pretty perfect for a murderous dragonslayer.There's action galore as the barrier separating the human and Other realm starts to collapse and Mordred and George attempt to combat the problem for their friend Kael. George takes on the obvious physical role he's trained for while Mordred does what he does best--languishing around the palace collecting on-dits. Reading the previous book might have been useful so that slippery extant relationships wouldn't seem like such mine fields and practical knowledge of medieval lore and literature would also not be amiss. Yes, Mordred, Morgana, Beowulf and a host of mythological creatures are given a fine sand and varnish, but knowing their own history makes the twist here more entertaining. Needless to say, I love the mash-up.Deducted a point because the ending was so...sweet. Recommended for readers who have a fetish for the medieval and revel in loving relationships.Favorite quote:“I’m not sure whether I seduced him or if I just wore his resistance down. It could have simply been he grew tired of my constant attention and decided to succumb so I would leave him alone. I never asked.”Reviewed for Hearts On Fire Reviews~~A copy was provided to me for a No Glitter Blown review~~
