Burned by Darkness (Dragons of Eternity #1) by Alexandra Ivy Review

Book Summary

The Dragons of Eternity were once creatures of myth and legend. Now they’ve returned to the world, prepared to claim what’s rightfully theirs…

Tayla is desperate for a place to call home. After years on the run, the young imp impulsively buys a teahouse and is determined to build a new life. Unfortunately, she’s barely opened the doors when she’s tracked down by the dragon who purchased her from troll slave-traders. He demands she pay off her debts…in his harem.

Baine has devoted a quarter of a century to tracking down his beautiful concubine. And now that he has her in his grasp, he’s not about to let her go. But it’s soon apparent that he isn’t the only demon hunting her. He must uncover her secrets or risk losing her forever.


This is the first book I have read by this author and color me intrigued. It was a rather quick read with nice characters set in a world packed with diverse creatures. Imps, fairies, trolls, dragons, awesome. While, it was little too short for me to get attached to the characters and feel tangible emotions. The ending was also rather lackluster I didn't really get that warm gooey feeling like she really found a home. Mate, yes. Home? Meh, its a castle. It was still a good read and I found myself asking "Where's book two?" only to realize to my disappointment this book came out only two weeks ago. So I shall read the Guardians of Eternity series until then. I give 3.5 stars and say I look forward to the next one!
