Book Review: The Dragon of New Orleans (The Treasure of Paragon #1) By Genevieve Jack

The Dragon of New Orleans (The Treasure of Paragon #1)

New Orleans: city of intrigue, supernatural secrets, and one enigmatic dragon. 

A deadly curse....
For 300 years, Gabriel Blakemore has survived in New Orleans after a coup in his native realm of Paragon scattered him and his dragon siblings across the globe. Now a voodoo curse threatens to end his immortal existence. His only hope is to find an antidote, one that may rest in a mortal woman.

A lifesaving gift...
After five years of unsuccessful treatment for her brain cancer, death is a welcome end for Raven Tanglewood. Her illness has become a prison her adventurous spirit cannot abide. Salvation comes in the form of Gabriel, who uses dragon magic to save her.

A harrowing price...
To Raven, the bond that results from Gabriel's gift is another kind of captivity. Can Gabriel win Raven's love and trust in time to awaken the life-saving magic within her? Or will his fiery personality and possessive ways drive her from his side and seal his fate?

Dragon shifter Gabriel Blakemore is running out of time. The victim of a voodoo curse, Gabriel is desperate to find a cure. So desperate, in fact, he’s willing to bet on cancer patient Raven Tanglewood. Despite being on death’s door, Gabriel feels Raven’s potential. Using dragon magic, he’s able to pull her from the brink and offer her gainful employment. Believed to have psychic ability, Raven is tasked with searching for a cure and Gabriel’s salvation.

This book was a highly addictive, immensely entertaining ride through New Orleans. I was glued to this story, finishing it in one day. The characters were well-crafted and likable. The relationship between Gabriel and Raven unfolds at a delicious pace and explosive results. The plot and story-scape are incredibly imaginative. Jack has set the table for a dynamite series full of action, romance, and dragon politics.

This is the third Jack series I’ve reviewed and it might just be my favourite yet. I can hardly wait for Windy City Dragon, book two in this series. Other Jack series worth checking out are Knight Games and Fireborn Wolves.
