Reap Not the Dragon is Book 2 of Debra Kristi's contemporary urban fantasy, The Age of the Hybrid. This series is set in Mystic's Carnival, a special world that is the setting for a number of different authors' works. Sebastian is a Reaper. He hasn't really accepted his being a Grim, an attitude his father is determined to change. His father's efforts at controlling him are making it even more difficult for Sebastian to help rescue Kyra, a hybrid dragon who's lost her memory and is being manipulated by her aggressive and domineering boyfriend, Marcus. Sebastian will go to any lengths to help Kyra, even if it means facing her very powerful fire dragon father.
Debra Kristi's contemporary urban fantasy, Reap Not the Dragon, is fast-paced and enthralling. I've read several stories set in Mystic's Carnival and have come to know and love the characters who people this very special place. Reap Not the Dragon is Book Two of The Age of the Hybrid, and while there's enough background given for this novella to stand on its own, I would strongly recommend reading the first volume, The Moorigad Dragon, to get the full force of this powerful story. Sebastian is the perfect choice for a quest; he's single-minded in his determination but also confused by his dual nature, and he's all too aware of the darkness he's capable of. Kristi adroitly weaves his tale, and I was spell-bound reading it. Reap Not the Dragon is marvelous, dark and very satisfying, and as I finished it, I started to wonder when the next book in The Age of the Hybrid would appear. I hope it's soon. Reap Not the Dragon: The Age of the Hybrid, Book 2 is highly recommended.
