The Dragon of Doughton Park

Adult
Rated 3.50/5 based on 2 reviews
Trust issues? You’d have them, too, if the woman you loved turned you into a werewolf and left without revealing you were the one foretold in prophecy to lead the Lycan in a war against Vampires to save mankind. Clifford Crane hopes the powerful fae known as The Dragon can debunk the prophecy, but the ancient dragon king may be the very one who’ll go to any lengths to see it come true. More

About John Hundley

I was born on the first day of October in 1950, the first son of John and Patricia, in Baltimore, MD. I got a brother a year-and-a-half later. We moved around a lot. We moved to Charlotte, NC. I started school. I barely learned to read the boring crap they taught me. We moved to Asheville, and my Mom taught me to read real books.
I fell in love with L. Frank Baum, John Fox, Jr., Edward Ormondroyd, Robert Heinlein, and Marilyn. We moved to Greenville, SC. I fell in love with Kathy, H.G. Wells, and Edgar Rice Burroughs.
I went to Junior High School. I fell in love with Cecelia, Isaac Asimov, and Jackie (sigh).
I went to High School. I fell in love with Donna, Kathy, Jane, Merrill, Jackie (again), and alcohol. I decided to become a writer.
I went to Presbyterian College. I fell in love with Cynthia, Ann, marijuana, LSD, what’s-her-name, Harlan Ellison, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, and Joni Mitchell. I left Presbyterian College and went to the University of Georgia (go Dawgs!). I fell in love with Karyn (sigh), J.R.R Tolkein, Robert Heinlein (again), cocaine, and The Allman Brothers. I tried to write.
I graduated college. I fell in love with Pat, Barbara, Dale, Carol, what’s-her-name, James Tiptree Jr., Frank Herbert, Ursula K LeGuin, Connie (OMG), Stephen King, Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, and Kathy. I tried to write.
I married Kathy. I fell out of love with cocaine and LSD. I gave up on writing. I moved to Charlotte, NC. I moved to Salisbury, NC. I got divorced. I fell out of love with alcohol and marijuana. I fell in love with Amanda, Susan, Pam, Gerrie (sigh), Michael Crichton, Robert R. McCammon, John Grisham, Dean Koontz, Janine, and Cheri.
I moved back to Charlotte, NC. I fell in love with Caren and got married again. We had a kid. I got un-married. I fell in love with Charlaine Harris, Stephenie Meyer, Patricia Briggs, Richelle Mead, and Taylor Swift.
Oh, and along the way, I made a lot of wonderful friends and observed first-hand the never-ending, enigmatic, inexplicable miracle of life. And, I started to write again…
…and I haven’t stopped.

Review by: prismseven on July 26, 2014 :
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. I was a little taken back by the child like cover when i first opened the book resulting in a preconceived notion on how the story was going to be. Needless to say i was pleasantly surprised on how much I enjoyed the story. The fantasy/paranormal elements made the story more interesting. The relationship between the vampire and the werewolf brought a little heat into the story, and the intervening of the wise old dragon added an additional magical feel. Overall fun read.

Review by: Midu Hadi on July 12, 2014 :
What I liked:

Cliff's character is fun reading about - he chews on stuff and hesitates making rash decisions but he ends up exactly that!

the Inner Circle pack wasn't stupid - they guessed Danielle might be spying for her master etc

Nicole & her problems with Cody seemed genuine - she's an Omega & he's a dominant, things shouldn't be smooth in their relationship & they weren't

how Cliff realized that they didn't have much of a plan when the packs attacked the vampire nightclubs & that it was luck that got them through. It thus becomes essential for any battles in the future books to be meticulously planned out.

the twist at the end - can't wait to see where Claire's been up to!

What I didn't like:

Cliff's soft spot for Danielle has become irritating - when will he get over it?

There wasn't much indication in the first half of the book about Cliff being hung up on Claire and suddenly he just was?

I would have liked some more details about the Dragon & his sidekick but I'm pretty sure, we'll learn more in the next book. A good follow up to an interesting book!
