I really enjoyed this book, Despite not having read any of the books in this series I never felt lost and it made me want to go back and read the other's. I loved all the characters and the fact that the Author could take a character you thought had no redeeming qualities and make you feel for them was true talent. I would highly recommend this book.

This is the latest in the Blood of the Drakon series. Karina Azarov has featured in previous books as head of the Knights of the Dragons but this is the first time we’ve met Jericho & his fellow Drakons. Jericho is on a mission to kill the head of the Knights of the Dragons & start a war to end their organisation but when he meets Karina he is unable to carry it out. After the car crash caused by the attack Karina has amnesia & an injured shoulder that has damaged a strange tattoo she cannot recall.
The other Drakons do not trust Karina & are ready to complete their plan to kill her as her organisation has caused the death & imprisonment of many Drakons through the years. Jericho has to overcome his own mistrust & protect Karina from the other Drakons. 
This was a great read & I have followed the series from the beginning which is probably the best way to read them

This book is a part of the Blood of the Drakon's series and I would absolutely read those book's before you read this one!! Otherwise you will probably be confused and not understand what is going on in this one, or understand the things that are spoken about. This one is about Jericho Drake and Karina Azarov. Jericho has a plan with some of his fellow Drakon's to take out the head of the Knight's of the Dragon once and for all. But in the process of trying to execute that plan Karina, who is the leader, loses her memory and doesn't even know why she has been taken. And when his dragon decides that she is his mate, it just makes the situation even worse.

I absolutely loved this book!! Reading about Karina in the previous books made me really dislike her, and I was extremely leery about her getting her own book. But this author definitely pulled it off and in a way that makes you love it! I don't want to say too much because it will give away things that are talked about and are a part of the storyline. But definitely loved every minute of it and the introduction of these new characters! Now I need their stories!! Great read!

They say that opposites attract and in this case it's definitely true.  Jericho and his group of Drakons (children of dragons and humans) are out to kidnap Karina, the head of the Knights (who like to use Drakons for their blood or kills them).  The group manages to capture Karina after an accident, but during the capture Karina loses her memory.  This means she doesn't remember that Jericho and his friends are supposed to be her enemies.

I loved how Jericho fought his attraction to Karina in this book.  I loved it even more when Jericho called Karina "mine".  There are some stories where an alpha is necessary and this is one of them.  It definitely made the intimate scenes hot.

Despite not having read any of the books in this series, the characters were well thought out and I didn't feel like I was missing anything.  I really liked the secondary characters in the story and loved the happy ending.

That you for my review copy of Drakon’s Knight. Unfortunately, I did not love it but I’d liked the writing style enough to where I would read something different from this author.

This is the seventh book in a series, something that I wasn't actually aware of when I started reading it. I don't think that really mattered though, as I didn't feel that there was anything missing or that I didn't understand as the story progressed.
In some ways, this is a bit of an unusual story. It is a tale of enemies to lovers but is perhaps a little different as in this case, the hero and heroine don't slowly discover that they feel for one another, but it's quite sudden and then they have to deal with the consequences of that. Karina loses her memory after being in a car accident, both of what lead to the accident and who she is. Jericho had intended to kill her, as she is the leader of a group who kill drakons. The moment that he first sees her, he realises that she is, in fact, his mate and he can't possibly do anything but take her with him.
Not only do Karina and Jericho have to come to terms with their feelings for one another, but Karina has to discover who she really is. Not only, who she has been in recent years, but who she really is and why she may have acted in a certain way.
This was an interesting story and for me, a new and interesting take on the idea of Dragon Shifters. I did struggle a little with Karina as a character, possibly because she had so much to deal with in quite a short space of time. I haven't read previous books in the series to have come across her character before, but I do wonder if she was all that was suggested in this book, how easy that transition would sit with readers who had read about her in previous books.
Overall I enjoyed this story and may well look into others in the series. 
I received a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

This was an awesome read, but I can't tell if this is the finale in the series.... So as far as the story goes loved it! But if this is the end of the series it's kinda flat, so I'm going to assume that it's not the end. There story was sweet, sexy and endearing. I enjoyed the dynamics of the two the town feelings about having feelings for each other

This is number 7 in the Blood of the Dragon by N.J. Walters.  Suggest reading these in order but these are so unique and paranormal in nature - just jump right in.  This starts with 4 drakon brothers but not of the blood; who are assassins hunting down Karina Azorov an enemy of their kind. Just love all of these mercenaries who are all different characters that move the story along nicely.  Love, Hate, and deadly magic are controls that make Drakon's Knight an excellent book.  "A copy of this book was provided by Entangled via NetGalley with no requirements for a review.  Comments here are my honest opinion."  LOVE WALTERS' DRAKONS!

in this installment things get changed up and someone who hasn't read the prior books would be able to read this without feeling lost.  we are introduced to a new cast of characters with the exception of our heroine who who has had brief bits in prior books as the enemy leader and her body guard who plays a small but surprisingly pivotal role in this story.  Yes the enemy leader who all drakon hate & want gone is our heroine and her path there is interesting with some twists and turns but is well (and believably) handled as new layers of Karina our uncovered during the story.  while our hero Jericho quickly realizes that Karina is his destined mate (a fact which completely messes up not only his day but some major plans he and his friends where in the process of implementing), it was exactly instant love. Jericho and his friends were solid and interesting characters both very different than the 4 brothers who started this series but also similar in different ways.  seeing the strength and bonds of friendship between the men contrasting with the the fragile slowly building trust developing with between them and Karina and in her own past was interesting to see enfold.  This story was nicely paced between action, romance, discovery, trust and friendships with a few surprise twists add to the fun right to the end.  I do hope that there will be more stories to come as there are at least 3 drakon who deserve to find their own HEA and I would love to see (and learn) more about.

What a good book!  Karina's life isn't what she has believed it to be.  Betrayal is always a bitter pill when fed to you by those you trust.  This is a very well written story with a happy ending.

Drakon's Knight
By N.J Walter's

Drakon Jericho Drake, os the child of a pure-blood dragon and a human female. He has figured out a simple plan: to kill the leader of the Knights of the dragon and therefore start a war. Except, after he crashes the car she's in and meets his target, Karina Azarov. Karina can not for the life of her remember who she really is and the worse problem yet. He can't kill her because his dragon side has just claimed the dangerous woman as his mate and make no mistake she is as ruthless as ruthless can get.

Karina Azarov has no memory of the accident and neither has she any idea why these Drakon's have taken her to their home. They say it's for protected custody, bit inside her mind seems to think kidnapping and she doesn't understand in the least why she is so inexplicably drawn to her captor. I mean he is her captor right, but oh her head just hurts way  to much to figure it out. It could be because he's strong, intelligent, and yes sexy too, but if her memories were to return ever after he has claimed her as his own the very war that is not wanted will loon closer and closer.

I have read books by N. J Walter's before and really enjoyed them however this is one of the best yet.
The main characters Jericho and Karina have a chemistry between them which gets tougher to deny as time goes on. As much a Jericho is a mean dragon he feels the mating pull and almost becomes a lover which is a change for him. I really enjoyed this story and found it quite fascinating. I'm eager to see what N
J Walter's will come up with next.

Yeah!  Another installment of this unique world.  I just love all of the Drakon books so far.  This one made me wonder if I would like it though given the female lead is so awful in the previous books.  Karina had a long way to go for redemption in my eyes. 

Never fear, the author gave just the perfect read between Karina and Jericho.  Of course a little magic, a fated mate and some kick a$$ Drakon's would have made it a worthy read any way.  

My only issue with the book was that it seemed to rush  to the finish once the battle scene was done. I ended the book and though-- is this it--the end of the series??  That was the vibe I got but I would be thrilled if we get to see the rest of Jericho's team find their mates as well.  I also would have loved seeing Jericho and his biological brother's first meeting and relationship building.  One can only dream, right!

I really enjoyed this book I wasn't sure I was going to since Karina Asarov is the the female lead, But it really surprised me. Hoping that the series continues as we now have 3 more unmated drakons. I would like to see more of the previous characters in the future books if there are any.

So incredible story Drakon's story from N.J. What a twist in the plot. I love all the Drakon's story and how real life it feels.

Oh how I wanted to like this story.... I could not get into this one. 
The premise of the story sounds amazing! I love shifter stories! And maybe I couldn't get into this one since it is book 7 in the series.... I'm not sure. It was written well though and I do recommend trying it.

Yay, another Dragon's story (oh no, I mean Drakon of course). Because Jericho is not a dragon: he is a son of a dragon and a human mother. And it turns out he has siblings he never knew about. Like Nic (from Drakon's Past) and Luther (from Drakon Unchained). But they never bother to find him, so he isn't sure if he wants to meet them. Better to stay with his non-by-blood brothers and try to take out the Knights of the Dragon by killing their leader: Karina Azarov. But when he is standing face-to-face with his worst enemy, fate throws him a curveball: Karina is destined to be his mate...
Undecided to kill or keep Karina, he decides to take her away. Because Karina has lost her memories during the attack and she doesn't know who she is or what her attackers want. Jericho's brothers are not too happy, because they think it is a trap. It couldn't be that the stone cold woman Karina is suddenly changed. So, they are hostile towards her. Jericho is torn between his family and his mate: what to do? And what will happen if she regains her memory?
Find out for yourselves in this wonderful read. Nothing is as it seems and with a lot of twists and turns, the story keeps you on your toes. Loved it! Five out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.

Drakon’s Knight
by N. J. Walters

The Knights continue, another book and more Malevolent characters than you can imagine. Well, in this story you’ll find a little twist in the plot. But you need to read the book, because I’m not giving it up to you. 

One of the characters that is spotlighted in this story is Karina Azarov, the head of the Knights of the Dragon and an pharmaceutical company. She struggles with intense headaches. Convinced to head to the spa for the weekend by her bodyguard they head out.

Next, we have Jericho Drake, who with his chosen brothers are assassins, and on a mission to kill Karina. They’ve been studying her and tracking her movements, their ready to hit when ever they get the chance. And that chance is now! 

By using their magic, the car flips and Jericho crawls in and finds his mate and she has no idea who she is. And this sets in motion the rest of the plot for this story. 

Keep in mind that this book is the seventh in this series. But it is written in a way that it can be read as a individual book. Weather you start at the first book, or just read this one you find it worth reading and you can’t put it down! 

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

DRAKON’S KNIGHTS is full of mystery, romance, and suspense. In this book, Karina Asarov, the head of the Knights of the Dragon, is traveling to a spa getaway when her car is flipped and she is taken by Drakons (who had intended to kill her). The Knights are a group of people who capture and torture Drakons (children of dragons and human women) to get their blood, which has healing and anti-aging properties. Jericho and his lifelong friends have decided to cut off the head of the organization and kill Karina.

However, when Jericho sees Karina, he is unable to kill her and feels a need to protect her instead- since he knows that she is his mate. When Karina wakes, she has no memory of who she is or who the Knights are. This makes things even more complicated for Jericho as he debates his next steps, knowing that even as much as he wants her, he cannot trust her.

Things are even more complex than they could have imagined with Karina’s past soon exposed. The mystery grows deeper when questions about her family and her role arise. With a fast pace and some steamy scenes, this book is definite page turner. While there is instant attraction, the romance ends up being a fairly slow build with no action until a little over halfway through the book. This allows the reader time to understand both characters and see them come together.

This is a great installment in the series, raising some new questions and elevating the fight between the Knights and Dragons. Jericho and Karina end up making a great couple and the way the plot is laid out leaves a lot of time for romance, mystery, and some suspense. I would definitely love to read more about these two, and I hope they will make more appearances in future books. Considering this is a series, the overall story is helpful to follow through books, but everything is well laid out in this book so that it certainly functions well as a stand-alone. If you love shifter romances, I highly recommend this engaging and fast-paced series!
