Aiden and Lukas were able to leave Danica’s flat right after dinner. She told everyone to go and have fun before she curled up on her couch with Bastien to watch movies. Aiden led Lukas out the office door and down to the river. He’d never been out with his Master like this, and all he wanted was to take a walk holding hands. So, they did.

As they came closer to the bridge, Aiden stopped. He pointed to some bushes that were growing against the wall. “This is where I found Bastien. He was such a small pup. His fur was matted, and he was so skinny. I knew right away he was one of us.” Lukas squeezed his hand gently. “It took me forever to coax him out and let me touch him. He was so scared. You know we still don’t know what happened to his pack or where he came from? He says he doesn’t remember, but we think he just really doesn’t want to talk about it.”


Lukas listened to Aiden ramble patiently as always. “You’ve raised him well, Aiden. He’s a fine young praeses. He’s smart and has learned a lot from everyone around him.” Lukas pulled him close and wrapped an arm around his waist.

Aiden wrapped his arms around Lukas’ neck. He was only slightly taller than Aiden, and he was slimmer, but they fit together perfectly. “That first year with Bastien was the hardest. He had nightmares almost every night. Danica would sit with him and read him stories until he fell back asleep. He’d curl up on her lap refusing to shift out of his wolf form.”

“I remember when you brought him for the first time to the pack lands for a run. That was the first time I really saw you. You were so patient with him. We only had a few pups around his age at the time, and he didn’t want to go near them, but you finally got him to play with them. That was the first time I saw you as a wolf too, and you stole my breath away.” Aiden blushed at Lukas’ praise. Lukas leaned down and nipped at Aiden’s ear. “I wanted you so much starting that day. You know you’ve been my pup for almost ten years now?”

Lukas’ deep, low voice sent shivers down Aiden’s spine as he nodded. “Yes, Master.”

“I have many plans for us, now that we don’t have to hide anymore.” One of Lukas’ hands traveled lower and cupped Aiden’s ass. Aiden whimpered softly.

Reviews:Renee on GoodReads wrote:

I have written, rewritten and agonized over this review. How do I describe the flawlessness of A.G. Carothers’ latest work? I’ve finally come to the conclusion it just isn’t possible to fully give First Strike: Dragon War Chronicles the recognition it deserves.

The character development is among the best I have ever seen. It is a credit to the author when as a reader I feel so much for the characters that I am passionate about my feelings, whether it’s love, hate or even mentally (and sometimes vocally) begging for an outcome I want.

A.G. Carothers masterfully pulls out emotions. I was crying, I was yelling, even laughing at times but most of all I never wanted to let go. It’s impossible not to sink into the world the author created. I lost all sense of time as I was immersed so deeply in the A.G. Carothers’ newest book.

As always, A.G. Carothers delivers on originality. It is a rollercoaster ride that I never wanted to leave. I devoured this book. I have loved every novel in this series but this is my new favorite. There’s a reason this series is among my most reread. It’s impossible not to fall in love with it. Not to mention those scorching hot scenes that had me blushing and needing a fan. Be prepared to be swept away by the magic this author creates. The next book can’t come soon enough—I need their words. I’m fully addicted.

5 stars for an addictive, magical and emotional read!
