"How To Date Your Dragon" starts a new supernatural rom-com series by Molly Harper. Much as I like Half-Moon Hollow, it was nice to have a new setting and some completely new characters.
Fans of Molly Harper will get everything they expect: strong independent female lead, apparently dominant and distant male lead with a heart of gold, witty dialogue, mutually mindblowing sex arrived at after overcoming a satisfying number of hurdles and a well-drawn supernatural setting.
They'll also get a new and different take on the supernatural than Half-Moon Hollow, a serial killer, and how clutch of new characters, beyond the female and male leads, that are going to be a lot of fun.
One of the things I liked most about this book was that the male characters seem better drawn and more compelling than usual, mostly because Molly Harper has written "How To Date Your Dragon" with some chapters told from the female lead point of view and some from the male lead point of view. The Amanda Ronconi. who has narrated all the other Molly Harper books, takes the female lead and does her usual excellent job but my enjoyment was greatly increased by listening to the deep, rumbling voice of Jonathan Davis narrating the male lead chapters.
This is an entertaining holiday read that delivers a few smiles and a new world to explore. A good start to a promising series
