Review: Dragons have always captured our imaginations ranging from fire-breathing beasts of old to the more civilized dragons in some contemporary literature. ‘Dragon’s Lure’ gives a deeper look into the lives and loves of dragons – from virgins to mountains of treasure. Very original and breathtaking, ‘Dragon’s Lure’ will definitely lure you in as you delve into the dragon psyche. My favorite story in the collection is “Perchance to Dream” by C.E. Murphy. Ms. Murphy’s story gives a new perspective on Janx, the dragon from her Negotiator trilogy and one of my favorite characters. If you love dragons, I’m sure you’ll love ‘Dragon’s Lure’.
