Today I’m reading ‘On Wings of Thunder’ by M.D. Grimm
Trystan is an unchosen angel—shunned by society, bullied, and without a future. In a hidden well, Trystan discovers a carving of a dragon, who were once the commanders of demons and now believed extinct. But Trystan learns the carving doesn’t depict an ordinary dragon. Stories tell that millennia ago, the great dragon Asagoroth and his demon army nearly conquered the three realms but was killed by the five elders. The powerful angels combined their life forces to cast a spell, sacrificing their lives.
But history is full of falsehoods. The five elders only managed to imprison the dragon, and Asagoroth had cast his own spell—one of releasement. It only needs the blood of an angel to liberate him from his cage….
Asagoroth, enemy of angels, conqueror of realms, is free. But even as the angels prepare for war, the great dragon surprises them with an ultimatum: hand over the angel who awakened him or face annihilation.
History is written by the winners. This idiom has been proven true many times. But it’s been that way since the beginning.
In this fascinating story by M.D. Grimm, we have Trystan, an ‘unchosen’ angel who, in his caste, is the lowest of the low. He feels as though he’s meant for something better than cleaning up after others, but in his life, it’s not to be. Until the day he’s bullied and tossed into a well, where… Oh, gods, if only I could tell you. Suffice it to say, in the past of the angels, there was a demon named Asagoroth, who took the form of a giant (see HUGE) freaking dragon. He had an opening to wipe the angels from the face of the earth, but at the last minute he…didn’t. Five angels gathered their energies and… wow. I wish I could tell you.
There are SO many things about this book that I wish I could tell you. How there are moments of heart-pounding excitement, tender love, domination (not the BDSM kind), and so much love.
Even though Asagoroth is a demon/dragon, he’s sexy as hell. And he loves with his whole heart. A demon who loves? Yes! But there is more to the story than just a dragon who falls in love with an angel. There is betrayal, love, death, love, promises, love…. oh, and did I mention love?
I’ve always enjoyed M.D. Grimm’s take on shifters, and Asagorth is a shifter unlike any other.
And before you settle back and think ‘ho-hum, another shifter book’, you may want to check it out, because it tells a deeper tale. One that no one suspected. One that could change the very fabric of reality as we know it.
If it’s true.
Then again, history is written by the winners.
