Draekon Rogue; Exiled To The Prison Planet by Lee Savino
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Aliens at war!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌏
Character development: 🤐🤫☺️
The heroine: Bryce – She is the only human woman woman on the prison planet without a mate. She volunteered for the trip into space with the other 9 women because her brother recently died and Bryce blames herself for his death. She and most of the others from their group are holed up inside a mountain which has apartments built into the caves. The Zorahn soldiers know where they are and are outside the mountain which is protected by a dome made from tech and the soldiers can’t penetrate it.
The Heroes: Cax and Hurux – These two both were initially seen in the last book Draekon Fever. Cax is the leader of Ashara, the hidden Draekonian City that has been on the prison planet for years and was just rumors until Dariux convinced Sophia to go looking for it. Cax and his people have been watching the humans and Draekon’s Exiled to the planet for a long time, but the senate has forbid them to make contact in order to safeguard their secrecy.
There is some law that says if they are at war, the senate must step down and so Cax is now in charge. Hurux is the commander of the Zoraht military forces and is loyal to the Empire. Though he doesn’t always agree with what they are doing and is frustrated by the incompetent people under him.
The Story: Bryce’s pet Karvil, Fluffy McCutie doesn’t like being locked up and escapes out of a part of the dome where a weakness allows him to escape. Bryce is sad because it has been a year to the day that her brother passed away, so she needs her pet to keep her sane. So she sneaks out of the mountain and the dome through the same weakness as Fluffy must have and goes in search of her beloved pet.
While out searching for Fluffy, Bryce stumbles into Cax, then Hurux finds them. Cax knows he is a Draekon but Hurux has never failed the test and wasn’t exiled to the prison planet, he is there to find the Scientist Raiht’vi (who is engaged to the high emporer Lennox) and to bring the human women back to Earth so the emperor can keep his word, despite the fact that none of the women want to go. However, when both men see Bryce they change into dragons, which is the sign that they have met their fated mate.
Like the previous books, this one was narrated by Misty Dawn, Ry Forest and Jasper Woodcock. They did a great job and I like their voices. Though I really hated Ry Forest when he did the voice of Hurux. He did the same thing in the last book and it got on my nerves a bit, it really did during this book. It was like he was trying to do a deeper voice and it just sounded overly fake and kind of like an old man.
