Emily Carrington is an amazing author. M/M is not my typical reading, but once I started reading this incredible story, I just couldn’t stop. Emily’s characters are so real in what they have gone through in their lives to make them the men they are today. This might be a fantasy book, but the storyline could fit into many of our own lives. Dragon Food is an incredible story of trust, betrayal, fear, abuse, secrets, of feeling unworthy of anyone’s affections let alone to be loved and to give love in return. There are many turns and twists in this story. I can’t wait to read Book 2 Dragon Fire and Book 3 Dragon’s Bane!
