About the Author

I’m an author who enjoys writing about paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and a variety of other topics. Interestingly enough, I taught myself how to read at the young age of four.

I remember attempting to ride my tricycle to what I assumed was work – I didn’t know exactly where it was, but I was convinced that it must have been an intriguing place if people went there every day. Nowadays, I’m fortunate enough to combine my passion for literature with my career, and I no longer need to ride my tricycle to work.

I’m proud to say that my Elder Races series dates back to May 2011. To stay up to date with my latest work, you can find me on Twitter and Facebook!

Editoral Review

In “Dragos Takes a Holiday,” bestselling author Thea Harrison masterfully blends fantasy, romance, and action to create a thrilling adventure that will leave readers breathless. Published in 2013, the novel tells the story of Dragos, a powerful dragon shifter who takes a well-deserved vacation with his mate, Pia.

Set in Washington DC, the novel features a cast of intriguing characters, including witches, faeries, and other supernatural beings. The novel’s central conflict begins when a deadly virus strikes the city, threatening to kill thousands of innocent people.

To prevent the outbreak from spreading, Dragos and Pia must work with local officials to track down the source of the disease and neutralize it before it’s too late. Harrison’s writing is lush and evocative, transporting readers to a fantastical world filled with danger and intrigue.

The characters are well-developed and memorable, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and quirks. Pia, in particular, is a standout character, with her quick wit, fierce loyalty, and unwavering determination.

What sets “Dragos Takes a Holiday” apart from other fantasy novels is its thematic depth. While the novel is first and foremost a heart-pumping adventure, it also explores important issues such as power, prejudice, and the dangers of unchecked ambition.

Harrison deftly weaves these themes into the narrative, creating a story that is both thrilling and thought-provoking. However, the novel is not without its flaws.

At times, the pacing can feel a bit uneven, with certain scenes dragging on for too long while others feel rushed. Additionally, some readers may find the romance between Dragos and Pia to be overly sentimental or predictable.

That said, these flaws are minor in the grand scheme of things. Overall, “Dragos Takes a Holiday” is a must-read for fans of the fantasy genre.

With its rich world-building, well-crafted characters, and explosive action sequences, the novel is a true tour-de-force. It is a perfect summer read, filled with adventure, romance, and intrigue.

For fans of Harrison’s previous work, “Dragos Takes a Holiday” is a worthy addition to the beloved “Elder Races” series. And for new readers, the novel is a perfect entry point into Harrison’s imaginative and captivating world.

In short, “Dragos Takes a Holiday” is a must-read for anyone who loves a good story, regardless of genre.

With its unforgettable characters, breathtaking action, and thought-provoking themes, “Dragos Takes a Holiday” is a true masterpiece, earning it a well-deserved 4.5 out of 5 stars.
