I love this D.A.R.E Project series. The authors take a great spin on the whole Science Fiction/Shapeshifter genre. I absolutely love reading these and can't wait for the next ones to come out.
In this installment we meet Opalite the fourth sister of the dragon swan sisters. The other three have each met their mate on previous missions and disappeared. She is sent on a routine mission to retrieve a group of nine humans who have gone missing in an alternate dimension. There she meets her destined mate chained to a wall and held captive by the same being that held the humans. She retrieves the humans with a promise for a later meeting with her destined mate after she delivers him to one of her sisters, whose mate is a healer of great power. This begins Opalite's journey and ultimate freedom with her destined mate.
Each of these short stories gets better with each read. I can't wait to find out whose story will be next, and the type of mate that will prove to be the perfect match to each of the sisters. Keep up the great work.
Opalite has struggled to keep her self-contained while she travels and retrieves lost humans. Meeting up with a shackled dragon male has upset her attempts to keep her lift under her control. When her association with him gets the attention of her handlers, the humans charge her with manhandling one of their own. Defending herself would be hard enough with one witness on her side, but alone against the humans, what chance does a dragon swan have?
