Lovers for centuries, Mordred and George's relationship is strong enough to withstand anything--or so they think.
With dragons and magical creatures appearing every day, George risks everything, even to the point of losing his lover, to maintain the balance between the Realm of Dreams and the human world. Mordred can see George slipping away and, for the first time in his long life, insecurity creeps through.
As the presence of old lovers, new friends, and deadly dragons cause cracks in their foundation to form, Mordred and George must discover how far they're willing to go to save their world and their love.
Myths and legends from all over the world splash across the pages of T.A. Chase's Dreaming of Dragons, from vampires to dragons and from Beowulf to St. George, all can be found. I have to admit that when I started this novel I was a little skeptical. In my opinion it started off a bit slow and droll but I soon changed my mind and started flipping through the pages quickly, finishing it in one day. If you aren't into male/male stories, this probably isn't a book for you but if you don't mind reading them or enjoy them, then you really must pick up this book. The relationships splayed across the pages are complex and wonderful. Mordred is definitely one of my favorite characters with the way he develops over the course of this story.
Dreaming of Dragons is the second in what will hopfully be a longer series by Chase and I will most certainly be going back to pick up the other book to see how the relationships already established in this book came to be. I would say to Chase that I would really love to see a whole book devoted to the beginning of Mordred and George's love. I love the weaving of all the myths and legends. I particularly enjoyed one part where a soldier who has been for quite some time fighting dragons, learns of the appearance of werewolves and says that there is no such thing as werewolves. St. George himself is the one to point out "Neither do dragons." The leprechaun Niall is also an enjoyable character.
I definitely think this book is worth buying and reading.
