    Lots of warm fuzzy, kisses for Tori the baby dragon who stole my heart, *hugs* to the beautiful, sweet innocent. The little menace darling is growing up and trying to find his feet, he's not a fully fledged dragon as yet. So adorably cute when he realises that Jerney is part of his hoard and belongs to him. Long suffering sigh, they have a long wait, 40 years before anything remotely sexual happens. I am tipping that Tori will cause mayhem and find a way to change that.

    I loved this story. This was simply wonderful. A true Gem lol The story of Tori was so damn cute and funny, but also as interesting as the first two books. The land these are set in comes to life. The mystery and magic is compelling to read. The characters are wonderful. I would love to see more of Lyr and Miles. They are a couple that deserve their own story. But this book belongs to Tori and Jerney. As a couple they are sweet, but in a totally innocent way as Tori is still a baby.

Tori is so damn cute I want him for my very own. When he didn’t have me laughing out loud he had me Awwing in sympathy. One of my favourite scenes was when Tori heard Jerney was part of a Hoard, but didn’t realise he was Tori’s Hoard. The sadness just poured off him, then the joy when it was pointed out to him lol. I eagerly await the next, and sadly last? Instalment to this series. But at least I get to re read Tori when ever I want to, and I know I’ll want to often. ETA I very much doubt I will ever get tired of reading this book. Tori just captures my interest and my heart right from the start. No matter that I know exactly how things turn out my emotions react like its the first time reading. A wonderful story for Dragon lovers of all ages. Love LOVE LOVE Tori. ETA I swear I could read this story once a day and never get tired of it. Tori is just an amazing character. ETA Never ever ever get tired of this one

    What kind of monster would steal hoard from a baby dragon?! This was cute. I'm really getting a kick out of these short fantasy M/M stories. Tori is just the sweetest little dragon and I loved reading about him tripping all over the kingdom getting himself into mess after mess. I really liked how Jerney handled everything and what a great solid character that he was and I think my only quibble here is having to wait 40 years for Tori to show Jerney how he treats his hoard. ;) Makes me want to read What kind of monster would steal hoard from a baby dragon?!

    I should feel a bit 'icky' with the idea a teenager who is practically 'a baby dragon' and his 23-year-old human witch. But that's the lovely thing about this story; it doesn't make me feel that way at all. Maybe because it has a "fantasy/fairy-tale" sense to it, that I can dismiss the immaturity of Tori, the dragon, compared to Jerney (the witch) and find it so adorable instead. But waiting for 40 years??! Before Tori can even realize what Jerney means (as a hoard) for him?

Love his sweet innocence, though at the same time, showing the possessive nature of dragon (to his hoard). I think one of my favorite scenes is when he is freaked out about Jerney being a dragon's 'hoard' because he doesn't realize that Jerney is HIS hoard :). Jerney is a good noble man -- but truth be told, he is rather pale in presence compares to Tori. I also wish there's more to Miles and Lyr. Have a feeling their story will be wonderful.

(hide spoiler)] Super über cute, but quite short (2:45 hours), novella. Narrated very well by Albert Black.

Jerney lives with his two younger siblings and they together runs a magic "drugstore". A shop where you can buy all sorts of useful and needed potions. The three of them all earlier worked for a well-known thieves' guild as kids. They still do some services and spells for them. 'Stealing from a dragon's hoard is never a bright idea, but stealing from a baby dragon's hoard can lead to tears, sniffles, and smoke in the middle of a busy marketplace.' Dragons love their hoard and everything that glitters... An unusually stupid theft by Jerney's younger sister leads to a series of events. She gets (rightly) caught and accused of pickpocketing from a young (noble) dragon. Our siblings are in the middle of a mess an Jerney ends up in a prison. Luckily is he by then friend with the youngster" dragon Tori. Two hearts begin to pound harder, bond ties, and Jerney is soon a new very valuable jewel of Tori's dear dragon-hoard. *********************************************************** Stealing the Dragon isn't a romance book. It is more of a cute paranormal fantasy fairy tale with that lovely first young love as one topic. I liked these guys and most of all the dragon Tori's childlike way to view the world. He made me giggle and my oh-sweetie-mummy-want-to-hug-you-feelings where all over the place. I LIKE - who can resist an innocent "newly" hatched dragon baby?

    I wouldn't call this a romance but it is a wonderful little story of love. Love of family and friends. Jerney has raised and loved his younger brother and sister since he was a very young boy himself, and through hard work and determination he has also become a powerful witch and master of his craft. He owns his own shop and sometimes helps the thieves guild with potions and spells since it was one of the guild that saved the children they were many years ago.

He owns his own shop and sometimes helps the thieves guild with potions and spells since it was one of the guild that saved the children they were many years ago. When Jerney's sister steals Tori's hatchling necklace, he knows he will have to get it back to the young dragon. Tori is 17 in human years but just a baby in dragon years, and very upset at having lost his most precious possession. Tori decides he wants Jerney as a friend and from there the adventure begins. Tori is so cute and innocent and fun, a real pleasure to read about, and I have to say Jerney is such an honorable and good man, the side characters were interesting and I enjoyed the story from start to finish. So, while Jerney is now not only part of Tori's hoard, he is I'm sure his most prized treasure, they have a way to go before there is more than deep affection and friendship, and I for one would love a look at their future together, say in another 30 years or so.

    This is my first venture into the Dragon Hoard series and have enjoyed it so far. Tori was indeed adorably naive and easily the most love-able character in this installment. And what a joy it is to read a story without sex to complicate things! Something about how the dragons in this series display their magic reminds me of Merlin somehow. Now that my interest is fueled, I'm inclined to read the rest of the series. Pure reading enjoyment indeed ^_^ This is my first venture into the Dragon Hoard series and have enjoyed it so far.

Tori at 17 is just a baby dragon and Jerney in his early 20s is a very strong spell caster. Both meet when Jerney returns Tori's hatching gem which had been stolen.

Nothing sexual can happen, since Tori is a baby dragon stuck in the body of a human teenager. But the loving and caring relationship that begins will have you awwwing to death and will leave you with the sweetest giddy feeling. 40 years may seem like a long wait for Jerney and Tori to start their life as partners but when they have forever ahead of them surely it is just a blink of an eye for them. One of my favorite scenes is Tori making shapes with the rubies in his hoard. If that doesn't tell you how young emotionally he is then I don't know what else could.

    **grm** This is the book that I have liked more in the series. The story was interesting, and Tori the baby dragon, Nyle's little brother, was so cute and sweet and naive, that was impossible not to love him. When they stole from his hoard and he cried, OH gods my heart....I wanted to hug him and pat his head! He must be protected!!! He and his witch Jerney, I'm sure will make a wonderful couple, and I can understand why now nothing more than a stolen kiss from Tori, could happen, because Tori is **grm** This is the book that I have liked more in the series.

Tori added Jerney to his hoard the first time he saw him, so he may be a baby in mind if not in body, but he still knew his mate when he saw him. So damn cute, and I wished there were a lot more pages about them. Only because the book was so short I didn't give 5 starts, but I loved it.

I loved this story more than I did the first time. Tori is still the sweetest and Jerney is still his perfect match.

    I am loving Mell Eight's dragon world. This young dragon is sooo dang cute. I like that the Jerney understands that dragon's age differently even though they look mature in human form. I did wonder how that would work though. When the dragon is fifty, he'll be 70? Does horde magic make humans live longer? Other than that, this was a fun read that had all my favorite things. Magic, a little mayhem, dragons and great characters that I enjoyed spending time with.

(see cons below also) - There are some clever details in the story, such as those relating the dragons’ treatment of their hoards and the mixture of red and gold in Tori’s hair. - I couldn’t help smiling at the mischief all of the characters are constantly getting into. CONS: - The writing is simple, mostly telling rather than showing. Here’s an example: “They all got to see Nyle change into his gigantic dragon form and fly off with Leon on his back.” My reaction to this was, “Um…*I’d* like to get to see that, too.” But I didn’t, since there was no description of what it looked like. - I couldn’t figure out whether I found Tori’s childlike behavior cute or a little creepy. - (This isn’t necessarily a con; it’s just a warning for potential readers.) The story isn’t really a romance. Tori is too young for the guys to do anything but a chaste kiss on the forehead, and it’s more a feeling of affection than love that they’re developing at the end. Overall comments: There’s an element of the ridiculous about this story (“to avoid being squished, the baby [Tori] would be raised at the castle!”), but I found the silliness mostly cute rather than annoying. It’s a decent story, but with the simplistic writing, I simply couldn’t get into it. The story basically consists of “this happened, then this happened” statements all the way through, without much examination of the characters’ feelings.

    I wasn't in love with the previous book, but the series picked back up again here. A very different and interesting story. It was nice to see how Jerney understood Tori even when his own uncle did not. Because Torr is basically a baby dragon (even though he is 17), there is no sex in this book, but I enjoyed watching their friendship develop.

    I loved this one, too! The whole series of Dragon Hoard stories rocks. The mini cliffie at the end of book two, Breaking the Shackles, brings us a new way for dragons to be born. Tori is an infant in dragon terms and it's easy to believe. Jerney is the perfect mate for Tori. The whole story is sweet and beautiful. I hope there are more stories for the Dragon Hoard.

    This most recent installment in the Dragon Hoard series brings me to two of my favorite characters. Tori, the baby dragon, is delightfully endearing. Due to his dragon nature, at seventeen he’s essentially a child, no matter how adult he looks to humans, and this is conveyed really well in a series of examples and near disasters when others expect Tori to behave the age he appears to be.

Jerney is a talented witch, and yet another interesting spell concept is introduced in Dragon’s Hoard, because there is spell dipping and spell stirring, but I won’t go over the specifics here. Without getting into spoilers, the destinies of Tori and Jerney intersect, and it all turns into a merry mess from there. The concepts of shifters and hoards are elaborated and continued in this story, but a decided family element unfolds in this one. The heart of this story is the family love amongst the characters, and it pulls everything together quite well. Along the way, a few mysteries are unraveled, and old vendettas are dealt with. Once again, the story covers a lot of ground but does so without stinting on development. It’s a quick read, but an eventful one. And by the conclusion of the story, I was so very curious about the lure of the ice witches’ story that was dangled like a dragon’s gem leading me on to the final story in the series.

The castle has been rebuilt and life has gone on like normal for the most part. Unfortunately for some people that also means the bad parts are just as common as the good. Having rescued himself and his siblings from being sold off to anyone with a need for young magical folk, Jerney has tied himself and his magic to the criminal underworld of men. It is not a bad life, but neither is it what he would have wanted for his family. Especially when it leads to his sister stealing the prize jewel of the young dragon’s hoard. And that she did it with his magical spells, no less, only makes it worse–for both of them. The loss of hoard item is hard for any dragon, but for a dragon not even two decades old, it is devastating. But if Jerney returns the item he will risk not only his freedom, but his sister’s as well. I absolutely loved this one. Tori, the young dragon, is ridiculously adorable. I love that there is clearly a connection between him and Jerney, but because of Tori’s age it is more of a devotion between close friends than one of lovers. Yet. Once Tori grows up I have no doubt that Jerney will be right there with him in all ways humanly and dragonly possible. I was worried that the romance was going towards a more sexual relationship, but luckily it didn’t. It would have been a bit off-putting since the book repeatedly emphasized how young Tori really was. The story was sweet and funny and easily the best of the four books. I honestly could read ten more about these two and how they grow up together and with each other. 4.5 stars This book was provided free in exchange for a fair and honest review for Love Bytes.

Gail not realizing she got pregnant the human way and Tori so wonderfully childlike in a 17 y/o body in a non-icky way. Funny!

Dragons live for centuries, so at seventeen, Tori is still considered a baby dragon until he gains the maturity to shift from his human form to his dragon form. When his hatching gem is stolen, Tori unsuccessfully begins his search, becoming more disheartened as the days pass without any leads as to where the gem is. But when the witch Jerney brings the gem back, Tori is so grateful that he gifts his new friend with another piece from his hoard. When his sister finds herself in more trouble, Jerney trades his freedom for his sister’s. But when his friends kidnap Tori demanding Jerney’s freedom in exchange, Jerney must make find a way to save his family, friends, and Tori before the dragons destroy the entire kingdom. And when evil from Jerney’s past shows up, can Tori find a way to protect Jerney and those he loves? Stealing the Dragon is the third book in the Dragon’s Hoard series by Mell Eight, and quite possibly my favorite so far. I really liked the first book, and I liked the second okay, but I loved this book. In my opinion the writing is much smoother in this story than it was in the previous. This installment is not necessarily a romance so much as it is about the bond between Jerney and Tori. It’s a bond that will likely grow into a romance eventually, but because of Tori’s maturity level, it will take a while longer. Both of these characters are absolutely lovable. Jerney is a wonderful brother, friend, and protector. He has taken responsibility of his family since he was eight years old and is the strongest caster witch around. He’s loving and caring and his heart is huge. When Tori happens into his life, Jerney doesn’t think twice about opening his heart and life to the dragon. Tori is young and immature, but adores Jerney from the moment they meet. As with most children, Tori is an open book, especially to Jerney. He is completely adorable. He gets overexcited easily. He trusts quickly. He gives his heart freely. His feelings get hurt easily. He’s so precious. Like I said before, the relationship between Jerney and Tori is not romantic. It’s a friendship with a close bond, a bond that grows as they spend time together. I appreciate the fact that Jerney and Tori weren’t lovers. I like that they have a lot of time to grow up and fall in love. Tori is obviously not mature enough to handle that relationship and Jerney is willing to stick by his side no matter what. As with the rest of the books, this world is beautiful and continues to grow. This time the addition of witches adds to the magical layer of the world. And the levels of witches – spell dipping, spell stirring, and spell casting – is unique to this world and so imaginative. Also the introduction of ice barbarians is a great set up for the next book. I’m happy to see the improvement from the prior installment to this one. This series is creative and unique in the fantasy genre, and I really like that. Each story has added something new and interesting to the world and to the series. Here, the characters are well developed and the story is entertaining from beginning to end. If you haven’t read the first two books in the series, you should definitely read those first. I highly recommend Stealing the Dragon by Mell Eight.

But 17 years ago, his mom got crazy idea to copulated with his dad in their human's form, then his mom was pregnant and stayed in human form for 9 months and infant dragon Tori born as a hum I really liked this book.

But 17 years ago, his mom got crazy idea to copulated with his dad in their human's form, then his mom was pregnant and stayed in human form for 9 months and infant dragon Tori born as a human baby with scales and all dragon traits. However, the 17 yo Tori have to wait another one or two decades before he can shift into his real form, a dragon. Pampered and loved by all humans and dragons, this innocent baby dragon peacefully spent his days in human world with polishing his hoard's gems in his human uncle's castle. It's a common knowledge that anyone steal dragon's hoard will face the dragon's fury. Until one day his precious necklace got stolen by some spell caster-thief when he was strolling in marketplace. It was a really light MM with simple plot, but so sweet and heartwarming that just reading it made me smile and happy and love Tori too in the process. Tori is sooo adorable, so innocent and lovable that I was grinning widely and helplessly whenever he appeared in the books. :D
