Some kinds of fire are only meant to kill.
Death comes for everyone. Even Drake Chandali. The aging process that twists all unmated dragon shifters’ bodies into something useless has taken hold of his body centuries early. A mate could have reversed the process, but now it’s too late. To protect his team of enforcers, he leaves, and comes face to face with the woman he’d thought was human when he saved her from a fire months before.
Except she’s not human. She’s a mate.
Camilla Carrillo almost lost her family to wildfire. To discover she’s fated to mate a creature made of flame and rage, and become one herself, should be terrifying. But somehow a rightness settles inside her, especially when she’s around the glowering red dragon shifter who wants nothing to do with her.
When Drake learns Cami bears his mark—the same mark as the High King—he refuses to believe she’s meant to be his. It’s too late. How could he turn Cami only to take her with him to the grave? At the same time, he can’t walk away. Hiding her from the corrupt, rotting High King might be the last honorable thing Drake ever does with the little time he has left.
The Enforcers deliver one creepy, rotting king, a dragon shifter, and a fated mate. Now, I am going to go ahead and tell you now, you should read this in order. I did not. I was so confused about the rules and the mating and the world in general.
Basically, if they don’t find their mate, they die a slow painful death. Enter Cami, a human girl who bears the mating mark. Cami is your classic stubborn, sassy heroine. Drake is your classic self sacrificing man. Thankfully for Drake, Cami isn’t going to let him rot to death.
In addition to the romance, there is great a lot of political drama. The king, as I mentioned is rotting and his cronies have been “running things” in his absence. Obviously, its ne’er do well behavior and the enforcers are trying to save their race.
The Enforcers isn’t a stand alone; Owens has created a very intricate and detailed world with a lot of unique information. I enjoyed the story, but think it certainly would be so much more enjoyable if I read the previous books!
