    I had a very hard time putting this book down. The intertwining of the different species kept the drama moving. Wonderful characters that will stick with me for a long time. I haven't read the other books in this series but now I will.FTC stuff; I received this book as a Goodreads.contest winner.

    The Seadragon's Daughter (Dragon Delasangre #3)by Alan F. TroopMy take: The third book in the series is my least favorite. The story could have been a trilogy with A Host of Dragons finishing up the series. This one involves and adventure with sea dragons and several battles (not very believable) with dolphins. Also, naming their daughter Elizabeth is a little confusing when it comes time to describe relationships.Characters:Peter DelaSangre - Dragon and patriarch of his familyChloe DelaSangre - Peter’s second wifeHenri DelaSangre - Peter and Elizabeth’s son Elizabeth DelaSangre aka Lizzie - Peter and Chloe’s daughter named after Chloe’s sister and Peter’s deceased first wife. Naming their daughter Elizabeth is a little confusing when it comes time to describe relationships.Derek Blood - Chloe’s older brotherIan Tindall - the family attorney (human) and son of Jeremy who betrayed Peter in book one and was killed for it.Arturo Gomez - Co-manager of DelaSangre’s company, LaMar Associates. (Human), also Peter’s most trusted human. Claudia Gomez - Arturo’s daughter and presumed heir to the position of DelaSangre family trusted humanLorrel - a sea dragonMowdar - a sea dragonMalka - an elderly female sea dragon who makes potions (including the poison and antidote keeping Peter prisoner).Style: First person, present tense. This is a rare choice that not all authors can pull off but it worked in this story.The story:(view spoiler)[The story starts three years after the previous book. Henri is now attending school with the humans and Peter and Chloe have a young daughter they call Lizzie. A series of mysterious cases of missing fishermen and empty boats comes to Peter and Chloe’s attention. Of course they suspect a dragon but worry about the carelessness of being noticed. That coupled with Derek’s disappearance from the Blood compound makes him a suspect.In the human world, all of the disappearance causes a story to emerge accusing Peter of murdering Maria and Jorge Santos which he did back in book one. Chloe and the children go to visit her family leaving Peter alone on the island where he keeps seeing a mysterious girl in the water. She finally shows herself and is a dragon of a race of sea dragons that Peter has never heard of. She is Lorrel and her people call themselves Pelk. She claims to be a descendant of Don Henri, Peter’s father who lived 400 years and had many wives.She poisons him to get to come back with her to where her people dwell. Her kind can turn into humans and dolphins as well as their natural sea dragon shapes. She teaches Peter to become a dolphin as they travel to her home in that form.Peter manages to get a message sent to Chloe through Claudia before he leaves with Lorrel.Once he gets there he is held captive and raped by Lorrel in order to get preggers by him. He discovers that they also have Derek and they are essentially sirens.Chloe blames him for not ‘resisting’ more but forgives him when he finally escapes. And there are some more battles and a dolphin war. And maybe all the Pelk end up dead, I’m not really sure.Once he is home, he deals with the whole murder accusation with an elaborate plan that involves Derek impersonating him while he impersonates one of his accusers (the owner of a paper) in order to frame him and get him out of the picture.(hide spoiler)]

    Miami-born shape-shifter Peter DelaSangre is living happily with his new bride, Chloe, and their two young children when danger strikes their family yet again. A number of boaters have gone missing, and soon, a troublesome tabloid starts publishing headlines suggesting that Peter is somehow to blame. After learning he must stand deposition, he reluctantly sends his family to stay with the in-laws in Jamaica until it all blows over. As he hunkers down in his island home, counting the days until he must stand in court, he is surprised when a hitherto thought extinct species of dragon makes her way to his doorstep. As an Undrae (flying land dragon), he had thought all other species of dragons had long since died out, but the sea-dwelling Pelk, as it turns out, are very much alive. The Pelk’s name is Lorrel, and after she lures him to her hidden community under the sea, she reveals her purpose: the Pelk intend to hold him prisoner, and forcibly mate with him! Now Peter must figure out how to escape this awful fate, and return to his family.I reveal so much of the plot in this review because if the synopsis gives you cause to think, “That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of!” you’ll save yourself at least a day’s worth of reading. While Troop’s dragon culture has always interesting thus far, he struck a little low this time in terms of creativity. The plot, complete with killer dolphins and trident-waving mer-people, seems lifted out of an old Saturday morning cartoon, and other than a few humorous moments, it really has very little to recommend itself. Good for a beach-read, if nothing else.

    Totally enjoyed this chapter in Peter's life. When a strange female shows up on his island, poisons him and leads him to the home of a sea dwelling version of dragons, Peter must fight to save his own life as well as that of his wife. I really have enjoyed this series. Sadly I don't have #4 in my hands or I would go right to reading it. Good news is that it is owed to me and I will be able to read it soon.

    This series just keeps getting better. The twists and turns in this one left me wanting even more. The characters are rich and sympathetic. Troop does an excellent job of making them feel very real. Very entertaining and well written!

    Awesome third addition to the Dragon lore. I enjoyed the introduction of a new dragon species and the relationship this species has to the protagonist of the book.

    This one was such a MAN's fantasy tale that I could not take it seriously. Sirens are an old tale yadi, yadi,ya...

    Enjoyed this book like all the rest in this series. This is actually my second time reading it and enjoyed it just as much as I did when it came out.

    Cleverly written. A book where you have to admire much about this human-eating creature.
