    25 starsThis was disappointing I usually really like Laurann Dohner books but this one was a definite miss It didn't even feel like one of her books It was like she was forcing herself to write it And it was tiring to read Dusti and Batina are sisters travelling to see their dying grandfather when their plane crashes They are saved by Drantos and Kraven who are VampLycans with their own agenda They were warned that Decker the girls grandfather who is a deranged leader of a clan plans to start a war with the help of two women When they rescue Dusti and Bat really someone called Bat? No one but Batman can pull that off they find out that they are his granddaughters and are completely ignorant of their heritage as well as all supernatural things Their plans uickly change especially when Drantos tests Dusti's blood to see exactly how human she is and realizes she could be his mateThe beginning was the part I most enjoyed from this whole mess The crash the introduction and reactions of the four were entertaining Then it got frustrating and after that annoying I can't go into it much without spoilers for everything Drantos and Kraven keep the sisters separated after a point and the story follows Dusti and DrantosThere was only mild banter between Dusti and Drantos and that was mostly in the beginning were she thinks he's off his meds and bipolar She finds out everything he told her is true and things escalate between them very uickly Their whole romance was lacking something I don't know what exactly but I didn't feel the pull and chemistry at all most times The sex scenes were good but lacked that depth that would have made them stellar There were plenty misunderstandings due to Dusti not knowing VampLycan customs which were cliche tiring annoying and just plain unnecessary The constant repetitions throughout the whole book felt like filler The info about VLG and the way it was given was sort of stilted to me Everyone hates each otherVampires are afraid and hate VampLycans Gargoyles and GarLycans are superiorsnobbish to everyone and also hate everyone And what up with the names? VampLycans GarLycans? Dustina Batina Antina?Humans are like ants beneath their boots weak and inconseuential They put down Dusti for being mostly human so many times I lost track It just wore me down really It wasn't all bad as it did make me curious about a certain character view spoilerAveoth the GarLycan leader hide spoiler

    So we all know Laurann Dohner and we all love Laurann Dohners New Species series Here are some of my favourites Obviously there are books and series but this is one of the best So getting to Drantos I was really surprised that Ms Dohner has started a new series My first impression was A new Laurann Dohner book I must live under a rock And I instantly pre ordered it Please note that the cover is somewhat shite so don’t judge it So please So the beginning of the book is “Brace for impact” The pilot’s voice sounded high pitched for a man his fear obvious “Tighten your belts remove all sharp objects from your pockets and bend forward “I thought well this is pretty cool not for the passengers but it did sound promising it then went to humour after they are saved by two brothers “I’m Drantos” the long haired guy informed Dusti when he looked down to hold her stunned stare “We’re hopefully going to save your asses by protecting you with our bodies”They do save them and there is the typical humourHis smiled turned into an outright grin “Sorry about that I hope I didn’t damage you down there That would be a crime I love bright red by the way Is that a thong? I can only see the front”Dusti and Bat Dawson are on their way to Alaska to visit their “dying” Grandfather Decker Fil Bat was invited but Dusti wasn’t she doesn’t like her Grandfather But not out of the kindness of his heart They are saved by Drantos and Kraven But they have their own agenda They are to intercept the two before they meet up with their Grandfather So here is where it gets slightly complicated So from what I can remember and what I’ll try to explain it goes as follows There are Lycans and then there are Vampires Some interbreed mixing occurred and the Vamplycans are born They are stronger than the vampires which means they are in danger so they flee to Alaska where they meet a clan of Gargoyles they can also mate with Lycans and they are then a hybrid mx of Garlycan They settle down and there are a total of four clans It is similar to how a pack is run clan leaderalpha enforcer etc Three of these four clans want to live in peace One of the clans that belonging to Decker Fil wants power He wants Bat to give her to Lord Aveoth because his former lover died and he is addicted to a specific blood and his Granddaughters are of that bloodline There is a lot of world building in this book and to be honest I nearly gave up on it as I kept on comparing it to her other books which you can’t do After about 15 % it got better I persevered I rockI get that Ms Dohner wants to branch out with her ideas and after a long inner debate believe me it took a while to get to grips with it and it is promising and has potential I personally think a lot of potential Dusti annoyed the living shite out of me She was borderline TSTL not a heroine that I am usually used to Some of the things that came out of her mouth had me mentally screaming at her to shut her frigging trap Drantos has the patience of a frigging saint He can be my mate any day So the mate mine thing is still there which made me smile There were times I wanted to read the book and continue and other times I felt like chucking it against the wall In her previous books it has been done that the heroines in the book come out strong to those who think that she is weak This didn’t happen here though there was a lot of pushing and pulling I felt sorry for Dusti in how the clan treated her She came to deal with her not so human sideThey have obstacles that they need to overcome but all in all a good start to the series All in all 3 Stars for this book

    I have read all the books in Laurann Dohner The New Species Series which is one of my favourite paranormal series so I was expecting Drantos the 1st novel in her VLG Series to be a winner Sadly it missed the mark for me It was totally horriblebut just not that amazing eitherI liked the storyline set in the world of Lycans Vampires and Gargoyles and there were some intereresting characters introduced But somehow I just couldn't connect with the main characters VampLycan Drantos and Dusti who he discovers is his lifemate And some secondary characters were a bit OTTI'm going to give it another try when the second book is available


  4. Sophia Triad Sophia Triad says:

    The first book of this new series wasn't bad but it wasn't great either The story is about two sisters Dusti and Bati who are going out of California to visit their dying grandfather in Alaska Their grandfather is a cold hearted man who made Dusti’s life hell after their parents died in a car accidentA plane crash will put them in so much danger and they will find out what they have been protected off Drantos and his brother Kraven will save the two sisters who will discover a world full of strange creatures such as VampLycans and GarLycansThe airplane scene at the beginning was my least favorite scene of the book and it set the tone for the rest of the story and not in a good wayI really had problems accepting this society The secondary characters such as Drantos’s mother the women in general were not very likableI did not like that Dusti was such a weak female character in most of the book Drandos on the other hand was just fine strong caring attentive and just a bit possessiveAlso all the explanations about the society and the description of the politics between the clans made the story a little tiring and boring But you expect that in the first book of a new series The new world has to be establishedI am really looking forward for a gargoyles’ story Aveoth sounds very interesting and I would like to see his capabilities and limitations

    5 Drantos Stars I am a huge fan of Laurann Dohner she makes any planet place or thing made up or not easy to be a part of And this book was just icing If you have read her New Species or Cyborg or even the Zorn Warriors you know this is going to be one heck of a bookVampiresLycansGargoyles books oh yeah you know it hot big strong possessive men Yummy Wipes up the drool D Drantos and his brother Kraven are VampLycans you guessed it a mix of both And they are on a mission Only it totally goes awry ha that putting it mildlyDusti and Batina sister who appear to be humanare on a mission of their own but again it gets thwarted right from the get go It’s kind of funny to watch two different worlds become one and how they have to deal with all the different things that come up Drantos and Dusti match up in ways than one It is fun to watch them both be uncomfortable and how they over come so many things to be together I loved the audiobook it was like being there without being there Savannah Richards does an amazing job with all the characters defiantly recommend this bookYou don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion and I am allowed to have it


  6. B.E.Love B.E.Love says:

    I loved this book and I can't wait for the rest of the series I think Laurann Dohner has done an amazing job building this fascinating world and wonderful characters I can't wait for which seems to always happen with Mrs Dohner I will say that there were times when the woman of Drantos's clan bugged me but it all worked itself out I loved Drantos he was a magnificent hero and again what I have come to expect and love from Laurann Dohner The heroine Dusti was great and the perfect mate of Drantos This book was just about perfect for me


  7. Maya Maya says:

    I just finished reading and let me tell you this was so not what I expected from Laurann's writing And I'm not meaning that in a good way sadly What I expected was simply put of everything More action sassyness acceptance and for the love of God definitely less dormant and discriminatory bahaviour I'm sad to say that this was of a flop than a woop story The story started out great Dusti was still a bit sassy and knew how to stand up for herself I loved her sister she was by far the best character in the whole book Now if only Dusti was like her the story would have been great But nope sadly she turned dormant and scared by the minute I know finding out that your saviour isn't just hot but also not even human could be a reason to panic but it definitely is not a reason in a fictional book of course to feel for almost the rest of the book completely frightened by his species No one wants to read about a heroine who doesn't know how to stand up for herself to the clans people till the very end of the book I know it's a new world and culture but honestly she should not lose herself in the process By the end she did get a bit braver and stood up to her deranged evil grandfather but for me it was just a little too late And don't even get me started on the clans people uggh They feel superior to humans and of course don't want to accept such a weak mate for their next clan leader What upset me the most is that view spoilerthey don't accept her TILL THE VERY END hide spoiler

    This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance What is not to Love about Laurann Dohnner her writing is fun and sexy and she writes PNR pretty fantastically When I heard that she had created a new series I was intrigued  and very eager to try this new series out So I snached up Drantos  and had high hopes for it and I was as satisfied as eating a steak after being on a liuid diet for weeks And what a whopper this story turned out to be It starts up when our heroine Dusti and her sister Batina are traveling up to Alaska to see their granfather Their grandfather is not someone you want in your family tree He despises Dusti because he views her as weak because she suffers a blood disorder When their plane crashes and the sisters are rescued by two alpha males who are dominerring and somewhat scary at times Dusti soons learns after meeting Drantos of what he really is and what she is When their grandfather's men close in around them the sisters are seperated and Dusti relies on DrantosThis story was uite fun and different We see a group of supernatural creatures Gargoyles Vampires and Lycans that live in the wilds of Alaska and have built a community of packs there I definitely liked Dusti way than her sister though Dusti is much down to earth she is hardworking but she also tended to let her emotions get too out of control at times However once Dusti becomes accepting of the reality of who she is and what Drantos isshe definitely becomes likeable But this is not the endbecause Dusti will become even tested when she will have to face enemies and fight for the man she loves and their way of lifeEven though Drantos is not my favorite of this authorthe writing is engaging and I had fun with these alpha males that Dohner creates in this stunning new series I am excited to see what she does with this new world she has opened up Drantos is a likeable and infectious romance that leaves the reader feeling intrigued and wanting of the VLG foogallery id19647

    35 felt the need to give it 4 thoughThis was a nice one The plot is nothing out of the ordinary but I liked itThe characters were cute although I admit I'm way curious about the other book the sister of the main character seemed interesting But it made me curious and wanting to read There were times when I wanted to kick the heroin's ass but she made me chuckle a few times too And it's nice to see weak characters from time to time too not those chicks who are all powerful The writing wasn't exceptional but it's not a very big problem after you get into the storyIt's a nice cute fun read better than I expected


  10. Amyiw Amyiw says:

    1 12 stars bumped down for non ending after nearly 400 pagesHad potential in ideas and world but fell flat for me The beginning had me hook for a millisecond then it started to drag and never stopped Pretty much it is Drantos finding his mate and bringing her to the clan that is biased because she is half human and blood of the enemy and Dusti finding out her whole life of where her mother came from and what she is was a lie and now she is mated and in love She gets to learn this whole new world of combination paranormal creatures that don't fit into the mainstream creatures yet she is totally not accepted by anyone but DrantosSo what I liked not much but there were somethings and it could've been much better I liked the take on the combination paranormals and the infighting among paranormals and themselves The eroticWhat I didn't like The Slog through the repeats and unnecessary to get to the romance The fights between them don't seem resolved ever Even these seem to repeat and flipflop The story of the enemy is left in the air cliffhanger The TSTL moments of the heroine and the deception or lying of mostly Drantos but even Dusti The clan's attitude towards Dusti as she cannot change who she is She doesn't know their rules and yet has to agree to abide by them The dragging through the story line that doesn't go very far and leaves much up in the air The names irritated me First it was Batina Dustina Antina it was just ergh Then the names of creature Vamplycan Garlycan the town 'Howl' really Howl? The editing OK the I used where the object me should be almost always happened with Dusti talking so maybe she is just bad at spoken English But the grammatical errors were throughout Just bad wording in the sentence or putting words twice in a sentence needing it once Where for were etc I started noting them as it was dragging anyway and they were continuous I think I probably wouldn't have cared much if I were enjoying the story When you are irritated everything irritates you This book is 400 pages long but really is a story worth about 200 if that At least for me I don't know if I'll go on to the second book normally I would say no right off but the author did surprise me with Cyborg Seduction after not liking Flint at all Still I was interested in the characters there and the books are much shorter It'll be a pass for nowSo below you can read my updates while I was reading I only do that when I am really enjoying or really upset with a book 34 through and this is a slog to get through I would've DNF if it were an author I didn't know and like But since I don't rate and review books I do not finish I'm pushing on This book is heading for the 1 2 star range I really think that she published this independently and either didn't have an editor or had a bad one Ah looking at it it is self published I don't know where her normal editor went but there was so much repeating and drag along with misspellings and grammatical errors so far it is craze worthy If the bookstory wasn't maddening in itself I probably could have over looked the drag and definitely the editinggrammar Good storylines and I read right past them wanting to get to the end I've push and dragged myself to get this read Nearly a month in and 5% 10% at a time freuently I just cannot stand than that Really this doesn't have story than her normal New Species or Cyborg it just drags the scenes out and repeats things freuently Add to that the romance where she is freuently TSTL and he is holding back necessary information and outright lying and you get a couple that is TSTL but hey the clan will save them they hate Dusti so greatly I really hope she gets an editor that will give her some of these and hopefully even better suggestions because she needs them I wonder with this self publishing if she is going to drop the New Species and Cyborgs because they are owned by the publishers I liked those worlds so much better 25% in update Although this is the normal Dohner fair of a story this one is dragging uite a bit This is close to a 400 page book and 25% in and I'm thinking she should really stick to the 200 250 page format 85 pages in and finally we get to the romance and bonding along with understanding the world slightly Mostly we have the crash survival yea sure there not and then the making the camp with the other survivors Mostly it is just slow In addition to this the editing is driving me crazy well maybe she meant to have Dusti speak with I as a object and me as subject but it is driving me batty You use my sister and I when you can use we instead and use my sister and me if you can substitute us not that hard I know it is very accepted to mix object and subject pronouns especially 'me' but for some reason 'I' as an object drives me nuts I can accept 'He is as old as me' read 'He is as old as I am' instead but not 'Give that to my sister and I' it just drives me batty I'm usually pretty good at reading over these things but I think the slowness of the story which is pretty good other than slow is making the editing glaringly obvious to me

    1 12 stars bumped down for non ending after nearly 400 pagesHad potential in ideas and world but fell flat for me The beginning had me hook for a millisecond then it started to drag and never stopped Pretty much it is Drantos finding his mate and bringing her to the clan that is biased because she is half human and blood of the enemy and Dusti finding out her whole life of where her mother came from and what she is was a lie and now she is mated and in love She gets to learn this whole new world of combination paranormal creatures that don't fit into the mainstream creatures yet she is totally not accepted by anyone but DrantosSo what I liked not much but there were somethings and it could've been much better I liked the take on the combination paranormals and the infighting among paranormals and themselves The eroticWhat I didn't like The Slog through the repeats and unnecessary to get to the romance The fights between them don't seem resolved ever Even these seem to repeat and flipflop The story of the enemy is left in the air cliffhanger The TSTL moments of the heroine and the deception or lying of mostly Drantos but even Dusti The clan's attitude towards Dusti as she cannot change who she is She doesn't know their rules and yet has to agree to abide by them The dragging through the story line that doesn't go very far and leaves much up in the air The names irritated me First it was Batina Dustina Antina it was just ergh Then the names of creature Vamplycan Garlycan the town 'Howl' really Howl? The editing OK the I used where the object me should be almost always happened with Dusti talking so maybe she is just bad at spoken English But the grammatical errors were throughout Just bad wording in the sentence or putting words twice in a sentence needing it once Where for were etc I started noting them as it was dragging anyway and they were continuous I think I probably wouldn't have cared much if I were enjoying the story When you are irritated everything irritates you This book is 400 pages long but really is a story worth about 200 if that At least for me I don't know if I'll go on to the second book normally I would say no right off but the author did surprise me with Cyborg Seduction after not liking Flint at all Still I was interested in the characters there and the books are much shorter It'll be a pass for nowSo below you can read my updates while I was reading I only do that when I am really enjoying or really upset with a book 34 through and this is a slog to get through I would've DNF if it were an author I didn't know and like But since I don't rate and review books I do not finish I'm pushing on This book is heading for the 1 2 star range I really think that she published this independently and either didn't have an editor or had a bad one Ah looking at it it is self published I don't know where her normal editor went but there was so much repeating and drag along with misspellings and grammatical errors so far it is craze worthy If the bookstory wasn't maddening in itself I probably could have over looked the drag and definitely the editinggrammar Good storylines and I read right past them wanting to get to the end I've push and dragged myself to get this read Nearly a month in and 5% 10% at a time freuently I just cannot stand than that Really this doesn't have story than her normal New Species or Cyborg it just drags the scenes out and repeats things freuently Add to that the romance where she is freuently TSTL and he is holding back necessary information and outright lying and you get a couple that is TSTL but hey the clan will save them they hate Dusti so greatly I really hope she gets an editor that will give her some of these and hopefully even better suggestions because she needs them I wonder with this self publishing if she is going to drop the New Species and Cyborgs because they are owned by the publishers I liked those worlds so much better 25% in update Although this is the normal Dohner fair of a story this one is dragging uite a bit This is close to a 400 page book and 25% in and I'm thinking she should really stick to the 200 250 page format 85 pages in and finally we get to the romance and bonding along with understanding the world slightly Mostly we have the crash survival yea sure there not and then the making the camp with the other survivors Mostly it is just slow In addition to this the editing is driving me crazy well maybe she meant to have Dusti speak with I as a object and me as subject but it is driving me batty You use my sister and I when you can use we instead and use my sister and me if you can substitute us not that hard I know it is very accepted to mix object and subject pronouns especially 'me' but for some reason 'I' as an object drives me nuts I can accept 'He is as old as me' read 'He is as old as I am' instead but not 'Give that to my sister and I' it just drives me batty I'm usually pretty good at reading over these things but I think the slowness of the story which is pretty good other than slow is making the editing glaringly obvious to me
