Dragon's Surprise shouldn't be read as a standalone. It’s the second in the Marine Dragons series. You'll get a bit lost if you don't read The Dragon's Mate first.
This book continues Franklin and Danes love story and adds to it along the way. It’s a fun ride on a roller coaster. I highly recommend this one after you read The Dragon's Mate. I hope the author writes more of Franklin and Danes story. This is a good read.
Can one little green Dragon cause that much disruption on an aircraft carrier?
Franklin was unaware of the disappearance of his brother and his family while performing in Russo-China, until Dane's squad of Dragon Marines rescues one of them from the Voldai.
Explosives, smuggling, kidnapping and security for a meeting of the World's leaders. The USS Requiem's sailors and Dragon Marine squadrons are dealing with all of this while watching out for a small, green Dragon.
Dane and Franklin find themselves in a new family situation. Caring for their niece brings them closer together. But, you can't keep a three-year-old on an aircraft carrier. Can her parents be found?
