Review: The Dragonian’s Witch by Meg Xuemei X

Reviewed by Elise

I am Freyja, the First Witch. I was born with a cruel curse: anyone I touch with my bare skin will die an agonizing death. That is, until a formidable, drop-dead gorgeous Dragonian prince invades my forest home.

The prince’s lust burns hot and bright for me, yet he resists, wanting his destined witch more. The oracle promises the witch will be his true queen and bring him the greatest kingdom on Earth. Knowing he’s the only man who can touch me, I crave his scorching caress. But I’ve sworn never to reveal that I am the witch. Not until he chooses me above her.

When the mating frenzy drives both of us to the brink of insanity, someone has to give, but it won’t be me’

The Dragonian’s Witch and The Witch’s Consort are a duet from Meg Xuemei X. If you enjoy slow burn, incredible build up and sexual tension so fraught it’s palpable then this is the read for you. It falls very definitely into the category of fantasy/paranormal romance. If you are new to the genre then this is an excellent place to start. The world building is gradual. The setting does have some impact on the overall plot, but is not crucial.

Freyja is a head strong, capable and sassy first witch and just my kind of woman. She is taken from her home by a Dragonian prince who is convinced that she will lead him to his destined mate. Although Ares, the Dragonian, seems to forget the Freyja is there under duress, she most certainly does not.  It is entertaining to see her attempts to maim, escape and kill her captors.

Eventually both Freyja becomes enamoured with Ares. Initially this is a result of him being literally one of the only people on the planet capable of touching her. She craves the human contact and Ares is a man torn between the growing desire he feels for Freyja and his loyalty to the first witch.

Freyja keeps her ‘first witch’ status from Ares and although this did frustrate me I can understand why she did. Freyja wanted for Ares to desire her and respect her as a woman, rather than just because of what she represented.

The chemistry between Ares and Freyja is titillating. They are characters that come from different life experiences and this affects how they interact and engage with each other. It also contributes to the misunderstandings and frustration that add to that chemistry. There were certain points in the duet that I was just about ready to shake these fictional characters for the insanity of their actions.

I very much enjoyed reading this duet and would highly recommend it. I listened to the audio version of the first book and the narrator did a wonderful job in building the tension between the characters. There is no audio version of the second book which was disappointing. I would have enjoyed listening to both books.
