#BookReview: Given by Nandi Taylor






Synopsis: "The captivating worldbuilding of magical lands and well-paced plot and character development combined with intriguing twists will have readers looking forward to more. " - Kirkus Reviews

A subversive fantasy-romance steeped in West-African and Caribbean traditions. 

Yenni has never been this far from home. With only her wits, her strength and her sacred runelore, the fierce Yirba warrior princess is alone in the Empire of Cresh. It’s a land filled with strange magics and even stranger people—many of whom mistrust anyone who’s different. But Yenni will prove herself, and find a cure for her father’s wasting illness. She will not fail.

No one warned her about the dragons. Especially not about him.

Yes, there is something powerful and compelling about the violet-black dragon known as Weysh. In human form he’s muscular, beautiful—and completely infuriating. What kind of arrogant creature claims a stranger as his Given; as his destined mate? Yenni is no man’s—or dragon’s—plaything. But other magics must be at work here, because Weysh might just be her best hope at finding the answers she seeks.

Only now Yenni can’t tell if she’s fighting her attraction to a dragon…or fighting fate itself.

My Review: Well I wanted to love this one but sadly it just wasn't for me.  I couldn't even finish it.  It was well into the men with issues territory and I just didn't see that changing in this one.  So sadly I DNFed it around 55%.  











I really love me a good dragon romance novel. This one was very nicely written and I really want to read more dragon romance in the future.

I absolutely loved this book. Dragons are my soft spot.  Yanni is a strong woman lead. She is strong willed and very loyal. Weysch is  loving and a protector. I love how different cultures are in this story, it makes it more interesting. This is one of those stories that a few lessons in it.
