#Review Dragon Mist by David Burnett
#paranormal #fantasy #giveaway
As the third daughter of a third daughter, dragon-shifter Christine Drachen must mate with a human.
Not all human males are genetically compatible with dragon shifters, and suitable matches are rare in old Charleston. Christine, though, has identified James to be an appropriate match. Even humans who acknowledge the possibility of dragons cannot believe that one can be both a dragon and a human, shifting between the two. As a result, Christine must attract James without fully revealing her true, shifting nature until he has committed to mate.
James gradually discovers what Christine is. She shows him the gold dragon she always wears around her neck. He notices the prints, statues, and tapestries of dragons that decorate her family’s home. Strange noises emanate from behind the Drachens’ house during a party, and James believes he actually sees a dragon, one wearing a necklace like Christine’s. Christine’s last name, Drachen, means “dragon,” and, while she jokes her entire family is composed of the creatures, James begins to suspect there is more to what she says than a simple attempt at humor.
Finally, though, he sees her shift.
To protect their species from persecution, dragon-shifters silence any human who sees one of them shift, and the most practical method is generally death. The rule is absolute. But Christine has fallen in love with James. How can she protect her family without killing the boy she loves?
Dragon Mist is a story of boy-meets-girl, with a few non-human characters, high stakes, a bit of magic, a little humor, and an abundance of romance. One-click it today!

I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
I have read several of David Burnett’s previous books, and this one is different to the others. Dragon Mist is a fantasy/paranormal tale about a dragon-shifter named Christine Drachen, who must mate with a human, though she needs to find one that is suitable and there is a catch – if any human see’s her shift into dragon form they need to be killed in order to protect there secret.
Christine is the 3rd daughter of a 3rd daughter and according to Drachen tradition she is expected to mate with a human, bare children and mix the gene-pool up a little, but before this happens Christine takes herself off to San Fransico for a few months and became a flower child. She only returns when she accidentally kills a man who forced himself upon her making her shift into dragon form.
Once she returns she meets and feels that jolt of electricity with a human called Jason and wonders if he could be the one to mate with, but little did she know she would actually develop feelings for him. Her father see’s it a means to an end but for Christine, she cant help but fall in love.
This was a interesting take on a shifter book, and I loved the Drachen history and traditions. Can love prevail for Christine and Jason or will her dragon tendencies be too much for him? You will have to read the book to find out!
