*Announcing a few plot spoilers so if you want to read the book first, then you might want to go on and do that now!*
I so so SO loved the first book in this series, Supernatural Prison, that I couldn’t wait for the sequel, and I was soooo NOT disappointed!
I do have some things I didn’t really necessarily appreciate, and I’ll tell you about these first, so I can leave the juicy parts for the end! ^^
Okay, so maybe I have to integrate some good parts right now too, to give things a little context :D Jessa finally begins to see Brax with the right eyes, meaning, well… they end up doing it! Yeeey! *there should be fireworks right here, but you’ll have to settle for text instead, sorry :P * But the thing that was sooo transparent and so did not belong in context was the fact that after the whole steamy sex scene (those of you who are less into descriptive scenes, fear not! The scene was not that descriptive!), Jessa is like IMMEDIATELY teleported to Fate knows where, so she can be told she will have to make a choice between saving the world and her mate. Then, ba-da-bing ba-da-boom, she’s back again in the bedroom, with Brax asking her questions on where she disappeared.
What the HELL??? I mean, couldn’t Fate or whoever (I’m expecting that the person/whatever who summoned her was a little on the evil side, but that remains to be seen in book 3) just wait for say 30 minutes? Maybe take her out of the shower? Or on the corridor, as she was going to lunch? Really? The scene seemed forced, and a little obvious to me, but who knows, maybe I’m wrong… *fingers crossed!!!*
And another thing I didn’t like was *MAJOR MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!* that Jessa had to be not only a dual shifter, but also a possible mate to the Dragon King… Why?!?! Couldn’t she just be Brax’s full mate and when the King rose, he could just take her as a normal hostage for her unique ability or something… That way my vision of fictional romance aligns :D Eh wel…
I’m a little nervous and exited to see what the 3rd book and final (or so I’ve been lead to believe) book in the series is going to bring to the table!!! *Am I the only one holding on to her stomach for this? Possibly, haha! A little weird that way!*
Onward Jeeves, to the things I loved about Dragon Mystics!
Well, I already spilled on the thing I loved the most: that finally Jessa looked at Brax as more than just her best friend, yeeeey *again*! Oh, and the fact that Jaymin is apparently slowly giving mates to the Compases ^^ Hah, the guys never thought they’d settle down this fast, so for me this was EPIC!!
I’m still a little unsure of Max’s mate – she’s seems a little sketchy – but hope her character gets a positive glow in part 3. Wouldn’t want Max’s mate to be part of the evil crowd, that would be WRONG! :/
Still love Jessa’s kickass attitude, and the fact that, even though she might be Brax’s mate, she isn’t going to just let the guys control her every move! You go girl!!! ^^ Plus, apparently, she’s unkillable, but not entirely!
Got your attention and interest yet? Yeah?
Well, go read the freaking book!
And here’re some quotes from Dragon Mystics:
Tyson was the first to wrap his arms around me. “Don’t you get it, Jessa babe? Next to our mates – which we don’t even have yet – you are the most important person to us. If we lose you, well … we lose everything.”
Well, wasn’t I the asshat of the day.
I was girl enough to admit Tyson brought a fist-sized lump to my throat and a few stray tears burning from my eyes, but I managed to keep them from falling.

Braxton forced me to focus: “We should move. I don’t see a sun to track, so it’s hard to determine how much light we have left.” He turned, and I was drawn to the sight of his muscles rippling across his broad back.
I leaned forward, my tongue already extended. I was so licking him.
Wait, what? No, Jessa!
I lifted my hand and unobtrusively slapped my cheek. I had to pull myself together. This was not the time. Not. The. Time. Braxton started to walk. I managed to suck my traitorous tongue back into my mouth and follow him, focusing on the simple task of stepping right into each of his footprints.
